What You Can Expect

Hoover Dam Tour With Lake Mead Cruise

Hoover Dam

Following morning pickup at your Las Vegas hotel, board a luxury motor coach and head for the Hoover Dam.

Upon arrival, embark on the Discovery Tour, which includes an exploration of several areas and lasts about 2 hours. In the Exhibit Gallery, view displays on the region’s natural history and the operational history of the dam. Wander through murals, maps and displays on the Theatre Level that document the history of the Hoover Dam. Watch 'How the West was Won', a short video that details the Bureau of Reclamation’s part in growing food and taming the rivers and the desert. Ride an elevator 500 feet (152 meters) down into the Black Canyon’s walls and walk through the 250-foot (76-meter) tunnel drilled out of rock. Visit the 8 generators in the Nevada wing of the power plant. 

Leave the dam and continue to Lake Mead Marina. Board the Desert Princess, a paddle-wheel steamboat and your chariot for the 90-minute tour of Lake Mead. Enjoy views of the dam from this aquatic vantage point as you dig in to a deli-style lunch. 

At the conclusion of your lake outing, climb back aboard the motor coach and head back to your Vegas hotel. If time allows, a stop at the 'Welcome to Las Vegas' sign for a photo op will be made.

Prompt pickup and drop off at hotel. Hoover Dam is a govt facility so there is a short security check in. No food, drinks other than water or pocketknives allowed but backpacks are. A short introductory video followed by tour of the generator hall with plenty of time after the tour to wander across the dam. The Lake Mead boat trip is a great option and I'd highly recommend it. Its very relaxing, you go quite close to the dam, its very relaxing and even slightly cooler on the water than ashore. I had one of the most reasonably priced beers of my Las Vegas trip in the bar - very enjoyable day and highly recommended.

Exceptional value for the price, friendly and helpful staff. I wish we had more time after the Hoover Dam facility tour, it is rather rushed to get back on the bus. Thank you.
