Relaxing ride on Dolly Steamboat. Captain very informative. Would definitely recommend. Get in line early so you can get your boarding pass and be one of the first on the boat so you can sit at the back outside.

This is the place to go to see Arizona wildlife, so beautiful! It was a bit of a drive but so worth it to get out of the city and see what Arizona is really like.

Yes. We beached our kayaks near a picnic site to have our lunch and use the restrooms. Easy to get back in :)
