‘Hello, Dolly!’

She’s The Star At Canyon Lake

The Grimh family has offered daily sightseeing cruises of beautiful Canyon Lake on the Dolly steamboat for over 20 years. This "Junior Grand Canyon" tour is consistently rated one of the "Best Things to Do in Arizona" and is a premier Arizona attraction for locals and tourists alike.

Just minutes away from Mesa, Scottsdale, and Phoenix, nature cruises depart Tuesday through Sunday at 12 noon. Additional cruises may be scheduled.

Cruise secluded waterways and relax while you admire the breathtaking flora and fauna of the lower Sonoran desert. Along the way, your captain will recount the legends and lore of the Superstition Mountains.

Bring your camera and binoculars; bighorn sheep, coyote, deer, bobcats and mountain lions may all be seen, along with bald eagles, hawks, vultures and many other native avian species.

Explore a favorite destination of President Theodore Roosevelt, who declared “the Apache Trail and surrounding area combines the grandeur of the Alps, the glory of the Rockies, the magnificence of the Grand Canyon and then adds an indefinable something that none of the others have.”

So join us on the Dolly Steamboat for an unforgettable "mini-Arizona vacation" and see for yourself why there's nothing quite like a ride on Arizona's Dolly steamboat.
