The heat of the desert getting too much for those little ones? Desert Belle Cruises offer a solution - the water!
Cruising is a great way for kids to see a new side to the desert, and experience some of the flora and fauna that you wouldn't otherwise see!
Once at Saguaro Lake Marina, you will set sail across the lake for a beautiful, relaxing (and most importantly shady!) trip together.
The lower deck of the boat is air conditioned, and offers large windows so you won't miss out on any of the beautiful sights. They have seating and also offer food!
If you want to feel the breeze on your face, head on up to the upper deck which have incredible panoramic views, which you can enjoy from under their protective canopy (no need to worry about that hot Arizona sun!)
Over the 90 minutes, you will hear all about the fascinating geology and geography from your very informative coastguard captain. You might even spot some of the incredible wildlife which call the area home! Try and see how many Big Horn Sheep you can spot, or even those iconic Bald Eagles - there are a pair that roam the area so you need to keep a sharp eye out!
Don't just think there is the 90 minute narrated cruise to pick from! Of course not - this is Desert Belle!
There are also musical inspired cruises, as well as special event cruises across the year. For example the Desert By Night cruises which really show the desert in a whole new light - moonlight!
Fancy celebrating your birthday out on the water? Then why not hold it on one of the Desert Belle Cruises!? They would be more than happy to chat to you about a private charter so your child and their friends can all celebrate that special day in a very memorable way!
