Lead Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States, presents many opportunities to get out onto the water. Straddling the border of Nevada and Arizona, and nearby to the Hoover Dam and Las Vegas, cruising the lake is a great way to cool off and enjoy the surrounding desert scenery.
- Discover the Hoover Dam, one of the Las Vegas area’s top sights, and learn about its inner workings from an experienced guide.
- Choose from an adventurous walk through a 250-foot (76-meter) rock tunnel and a relaxing boat ride including dinner and sparkling wine at sunset.
- Cruise aboard a historic paddle-wheel boat as you take in the sights.
- Stop at the iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign for photos on your way home.
Cruises with Food and Drinks
Enhance your time spent on Lake Mead with lunch or dinner aboard the boat. Dining facilities are climate-controlled so you’ll eat in comfort, and you can walk onto the open-air decks to maximize the views. Lunch includes sandwiches, drinks, and snacks, while dinner options include an elaborate 3-course meal with complimentary welcome sparkling wine and dessert.
Combine a relaxing lake cruise with guided sightseeing, including an overview of the natural history of the region, and the inner workings of the Hoover Dam and power plant. These tours also explore the Black Canyon, which lies 500 feet (152 meters) below ground. En route to the lake from Las Vegas, some combo tours stop at places like the famous Ethel M Chocolates factory.
