Nice Cruise

The ship takes you up to Davis Dam and then along the casinos on the Colorado River. Don't sit on the bottom deck at the back of the boat, the noise makes it hard to hear anything.

The short trip on the river was nice...nice clean Colorado River and nice clean air. Take a coat as it can be windy on the river. The bar drinks are just ok. They play a recording telling about the area, the history, the dam, the river and the casinos. It seemed a bit old and needed some updating. But good... More

Hosted a private party cruise for 38 aboard the USS Riverside. What a fun time we had! It was a great way to see Laughlin from the water for many who had never been to Laughlin. The staff was great and Michelle was wonderful to work with in arranging the cruise. They offer snacks & a full service Cash bar... More

USS Riverside takes you up the Colorado River to the Davis Dam, then turns around and takes you to the end of the casinos. It takes about and hour and a half. I rode it twice in 3 days. It is very beautiful to take the late cruise and see all the casino lights. During the day, the weather was... More

We always take the boat ride when we are in Laughlin. If it is hot outside, they have ac inside and they have nice cold beverages available to purchase inside which help from the heat. You can also relax upside /outside area. Good tour with lots of information.

Cost is $10 but you can get a $1 off if you get a coupon for joining the players club at the riverside resort. Box office is downstairs on the waterfront level. We arrived 10 minutes ahead of the sailing time. You can buy drinks & light snacks on board. The trip lasts for 1 hour & 20 minutes &... More

Nice boat ride with canned narrative which makes it a bit boring at times. Good way to see the dam and river in general for a decent price. If you are looking for something entertaining though, this is not the thing to do.

Purchase your tickets off the riverwalk inside the Riverside for $10. I was on the 10:30 am weekday boat. LIne up 15 minutes beforehand and they will let you know when you can walk down the dock onto the boat. The "deckhands" or "captain" all seemed pretty pleasant. They will sell you drinks, alcoholic or non-alcoholic. Downstairs inside is a... More

This boat starts at the Riverside Resort & Casino. Cost is $10. It runs at 10:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm and, if there are 10 or more guests, 4:30pm. It takes you to the Davis dam, turns around, takes you to Harrah's Casino, turns around and takes you back to the Riverside Resort. The narrative is very interesting from the discovery of... More

The people working are always super friendly and fun! One ladies hat flew off and the park ranger happened to be right there and was able to fish it out of the water. There was also a lady who had a medical emergency and they had medics waiting for her at the dock. Usually a mellow boat cruise but we... More
