  • A beautiful and relaxing trip on Canyon Lake. The captain was knowledgeable and informative about the sights. When he wasn't pointing out interesting views, soothing music was playing. I'd do it again...  more »

  • This is a beautiful lake and the ride on the Dolly Steamboat was fun but I don't recommend the dinner cruise. The food was really marginal, the steak and chicken were cooked beyond recognition and they ran out of drinks on the upper deck. Save your money and just do a sightseeing trip.
  • Nice boat ride around the lake. Crew was friendly. Lots of brown rocks. Offered the possibility of seeing critters, but none on our trip.
  • A fun side trip, but a little pricey. Call and reserve your tickets enroute, or buy them online. The weather was amazing, the water flat and the ride peaceful. One thing to consider is that if you sit on the back of the boat, under the awning, the engines pretty much make the captain's narration inaudible.
  • No complaints, my 2 year old son had a blast
  • Great scenic trip on the lake
