Enjoy a 90 minute cruise describing the History, Geology, Geography and Wildlife native to the Sonoran Desert narrated live by a coastguard certified captain! You’ll see the flora and fauna of the desert, including the various plant life and possibly bighorn sheep, bald eagles, bobcat, mountain lion or wild horses in their natural habitat. For best views be sure to bring binoculars. The boat has an open second floor with retractable awning. The first floor is handicap accessible and mostly enclosed with air conditioning. The cruise is appropriate for local residents and guests of all ages with easy embarking and graceful, relaxing tour speeds. Saguaro Lake is 10 miles long but the boat travels about 4 miles into the lake and then comes back to the dock.
