Over the course of 90 minutes, passengers keep their eyes peeled for local wildlife such as desert bighorn sheep and bald eagles as they chug past 500-foot cliff walls on Canyon Lake. While steering the air-conditioned vessel, the captain highlights local plant life large and small as well as the history of Apache Trail and the nearby Superstition Mountains. Children aged 4 and younger set sail for free.

Dolly Steamboat

For more than 25 years the Grimh family has served as gatekeeper to the secluded beauty of Canyon Lake, welcoming travelers onto their modernly appointed paddle steamboat. The air-conditioned vessel plots courses for guided cruises, each of which highlight the canyon's vistas at a different hour. Nature and lunch cruises seek out bighorn sheep drawing pistols under the bright desert sun, whereas twilight cruises combine ambient, evening light with a buffet dinner of prime rib or filet mignon. Dolly Steamboats also set off at night for an astronomy cruise that includes dinner and expert star reading from local television and radio personality, Dr. Sky. An expert crew pilots the Dolly and her wealth of passengers on each photogenic excursion, gliding past the Sonoran Desert, rock formations, and the Tonto National Forest.

    “bring your camera and binoculars, we sat outside in the shade and it was very nice. The cruise is relaxing and beautiful, we did see two big horn sheep way on top of a cliff, but otherwise not much wildlife in the summer. The staff was very friendly, it was a great afternoon.”

    “bring binoculars so you can see the bald eagles, if you don't have any The Dolly has a couple one can view through. Cash is always better to carry, sometimes the credit card machine doesn't read in the canyon, no problem run a tab and pay when you dock, where the machine reads better. I will recommend all my family visiting to take the cruise. we did the Nature cruise, we intend to go back for the twilight cruise.”

  • “It was so beautiful & relaxing. They were so knowledgeable, which added to the cruise. Saw eagles & Big Horn sheep, which made our day. Will definitely go again. ”
