Visiting Lake Mead and Hoover Dam is one of the most popular excursions in Las Vegas. Without the Hoover Dam, Las Vegas would probably not even exist—at least not today, with the city's existing high energy requirements. The development of the entire region is related to the electricity produced by the dam. Each year, about 7 million people visit the site to see the architectural wonder that helped transform Las Vegas.
On a Lake Mead Cruise aboard the Desert Princess, you’ll be able to witness the magnitude of Hoover Dam and see why it’s a designated National Historic Landmark. The Desert Princess is a three-level paddle boat that provides passengers with a smooth ride, plenty of extra deck space to move around, and the ability to comfortably tour the clean, blue waters of Lake Mead. A highlight of the cruise is an up-close approach to the Hoover Dam and the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge to capture some fantastic photographs.
There are three types of touring options available aboard the Desert Princess. They include the Champagne brunch cruise, the mid-day sightseeing cruise, which includes a full-service snack bar, and the sunset dinner cruise. The Champagne Brunch and mid-day sightseeing cruises typically last around 90 minutes, while the sunset dinner cruise lasts about two hours. Along the narrated tour, you’ll cruise by Hoover Dam, Fortification Hill, and the Arizona Paint Pots. Are you interested in cruising around Lake Mead? Tap on the link below to learn more.
