Only minutes from the glitter and glamour of Las Vegas is a very different kind of fun! Just a short drive from the valley of neon lies another world - Lake Mead and the mighty Hoover Dam. The waters of Lake Mead are home to the beautiful, roomy, comfortable, smooth excursion vessels of Lake Mead Cruises. Whether it's the delightful paddlewheel vessel the Desert Princess or our smaller, sleeker paddlewheel vessel Desert Princess Too, our vessels are built especially to cruise the clean, blue waters of picturesque Lake Mead year 'round. Visitors and locals alike can enjoy a fun combination of spectacular scenery, good food and "Outrageously Great Tours!"
