The "captain" was very informative and we learned quite a bit of history of AZ that was interesting. The boat was clean and comfortable. We chose to sit on the top deck to enjoy the natural breeze and even on the hot day (it was 106 degrees) it was comfortable. The lower deck is glassed in and air conditioned. There is a small snack/bar area where you can purchase drinks, etc and take to your seat. Their boarding system is great. You get a numbered pass when you check in and are boarded by that number to avoid mass pushing, etc like on some excursions. Very pleasant and relaxing experience. Will do it again.

Worth every penny! Great location, beautiful scenery, extremely clean and well maintained boat. Our captain John was very personable, great narration throughout the cruise. Drinks are served on the boat but you can board with a bottle of your own water. Best times to go are Tuesday - Friday as weekends the boat gets booked up and the lake itself has lots of private boats using it. We went on a Tuesday and it was peaceful.

The tour was amazing, the sights were unbelievably beautiful, and the captain was very entertaining. We plan on bringing anybody that comes to visit us on this tour!

Friendly staff and nice views. Inside seating has AC but it's not very cold. There's outside covered seating on the top. There's limited seating on the front of the boat with sun exposure and greater possibility of being splashed. Yet the breeze was lovely. The live music was very calming & nice. Recommend for a relaxing time on the water.

About Desert Belle

Bighorn sheep and mountain lions dart between the shadows of craggy lava cliffs as bald eagles swoop from sheer rock faces to wrest fish from Saguaro Lake below. Desert Belle has ferried sightseers through this picturesque lakefront within the Tonto National Forest since 1964, giving them rare glimpses of a thriving ecosystem that's inaccessible by foot or car. As the Desert Belle boat cruises leisurely, guides point out various flora, fauna, and extraterrestrials disguised as Arizona wildlife dotting the landscape. As riders listen to the narration from the shaded upper deck or air-conditioned lower deck, they can visually bask in cactus-studded desert vistas.
