Drive to Canyon Lake and Dolly Steamboat Cruise

June 1, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Saturday Drive to Canyon Lake and Scenic Nature Cruise on the Dolly Steamboat

On Saturday, June 1st, we will be meeting at Red White and Brew restaurant in Mesa and driving as a group to Canyon Lake to board the Dolly Steamboat for an hour and a half scenic nature cruise on Canyon Lake. During this one-and-a-half-hour, six-mile cruise, you may see desert bighorn sheep, bald eagles and a host of other animals and local wildlife viewed from the decks of the Dolly! We also touch on the beautiful flora from the stately Saguaro cacti to the microscopic organism called desert varnish. Discover why there’s more to Arizona than just desert on this spectacular Canyon Lake cruise. You never know what you might learn about Canyon Lake, Tortilla Flat and the surrounding area aboard the Dolly.

A snacks and alcohol bar is available onboard the boat. Please note it is cash or check only (no credit cards).

If you’d like to have lunch at the restaurant before the drive, please ensure that you give yourself enough time to be able to attend the driver’s meeting at noon and leave the restaurant by 12:30 pm sharp. The address of the restaurant is Red White and Brew, 6740 E McDowell Rd #102, Mesa, AZ 85215. We will be boarding the boat between 1:30 and 2 pm. After the cruise, you are free to spend more time at Canyon Lake, or return home on your own.

Registration for this event will be limited by the number of cruise tickets available from Dolly Steamboat, so please purchase your cruise tickets on the Dolly Steamboat website as soon as you plan attendance.
