If you think you can’t catch a cruise in the middle of the desert, think again! Visitors to Las Vegas have access to numerous air, land, and water adventures ranging from helicopter sightseeing tours and ATV tours to a variety of lake and river adventures — including cruises! There are many different Las Vegas Cruise Lines to choose from but one of the most popular Las Vegas cruise lines can be accessed through Look Tours. Look Tours offers access to a number of Las Vegas cruises such as Lake Mead day cruises and Lake Mead dinner cruises.
Lake Mead is the largest man-made lake in America featuring more than 700 miles of shoreline. Hoover and Davis Dam created both the Lake Mead and Mohave reservoirs. Roughly 96 percent of Lake Mead water comes from melted snow from New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado. Because Lake Mead is a year round recreation area, visitors and cruisers alike will happen upon wildlife, beautiful landscapes, different types of fish, and desert plants and animals. Not only does Lake Mead cater to cruisers from Las Vegas and beyond, it also caters to fishermen, sunbathers, boaters, and swimmers as well as hikers, wildlife photographers, and roadside sightseers. Las Vegas cruise lines offers cruisers a front seat to all of the action pristine Lake Mead has to offer.
Las Vegas cruise lines have all bases covered. For visitors that would rather relax and let someone else drive, Las Vegas cruise lines will pick up from just about any hotel in Las Vegas. Cruisers will enjoy a comfortable one-hour ride onboard a luxury air-conditioned motor coach. Lake Mead cruises set sail from Lake Mead Marina and they take place aboard the famous Desert Princess paddle-wheel steamboat. The Desert Princess is a 300-passenger authentic, 3-level, Mississippi-style paddle wheeler or “riverboat” featuring two climate-controlled enclosed decks, an open sun deck, and excellent views. Passengers will enjoy views of Lake Mead and Hoover Dam as well as the city of Las Vegas.
Lake Mead day cruises are roughly 90 minutes long, and they will also include: a delicious lunch, visitor center presentations & exhibits, the “How the West was Won” film, exploration of the power plant generators, The Exhibit Gallery, the overlook, the Old Exhibit Building, and the Nevada Intake Tower. The entire experience will last around nine hours from Las Vegas hotel pick up to drop off. Prices for Lake Mead day cruises average around $69.99 – a steal if you book online. Otherwise, the cruise may cost around $82.99.
Lake Mead night cruises offer several added bonuses; passengers will enjoy views of the city Las Vegas at night and a spectacular site from the lake. Additionally, these cruises feature an excellent 3-course dinner and a cash bar with numerous wine and cocktail options. At sunset, passengers will also enjoy the view of the mountains in all of their red and gold glory under the setting sun.
Prices for Lake Mead night cruises are typically six-hours long in duration (from pick up from your Las Vegas hotel to drop off) and prices range from $87.99 to $100 depending on whether you book online or at your hotel. The cost for children is typically the same price as an adult.
