Hoover Dam Lake Mead Cruise

Take a break from Las Vegas for an unforgettable adventure to the Hoover Dam! On this eight-hour tour your professional guide will provide narration for your round trip from Las Vegas while you enjoy a ride aboard a luxury motorcoach with air conditioning and large vista windows so you won't miss a thing.

You’ll experience Hoover Dam and its remarkable surroundings while cruising the calm Lake Mead aboard the Desert Princess paddle wheeler. This authentic Mississippi-style paddle wheel boat was built specially to cruise the cool and calm blue waters of Lake Mead. You can enjoy climate-controlled comfort on one of the two enclosed decks or feel the wind in your hair and the desert sun on your face up top on the open promenade deck.

The Hoover Dam, one of the seven modern Man-Made Wonders of the World, is an engineering masterpiece and historical landmark built during the Great Depression. An extraordinary feat, the Hoover Dam was the tallest dam in the world at the time of its completion in 1935. It fulfilled the goal of disseminating the wild Colorado River through the dry Southwest landscape, fueling the development of major cities like Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Phoenix. This awe-inspiring piece of American history is a must-see.

You’ll explore inside Hoover Dam with a government guided VIP tour and watch a movie on the remarkable making of the Hoover Dam. You’ll then enter the Hoover Dam powerplant where you’ll witness the inner-workings after a 70-second elevator ride takes you 530 feet down through the rock wall of Black Canyon. Your 30 minute tour will begin as you enter a tunnel drilled in the 1930s for construction and take a short walk to the Penstock Viewing Platform.

Penstock Viewing Platform is atop one (of four) of the huge 30-foot-diameter pipes that can transport nearly 90,000 gallons of water each second from Lake Mead to the dam's hydroelectric generators. An animated display helps describe the complexities of the construction of the dam and how it presently operates.

A quick elevator ride up to the Nevada powerplant balcony takes you to a panoramic view of the 650-foot-long Nevada wing of the power plant and eight of the dam's 17 huge generators. Don’t miss the beautiful and intricate terrazzo floor designs under your feet. This is a great spot for pictures! After your interior tour of the dam, you will have some time on your own to take in this historical treasure.

Gray Line has been providing Grand Canyon sightseeing excursions since 1947, so they’ve mastered this unforgettable tour excursion to ensure you have the best possible experience. Take in the impressive history and making of this historical landmark while enjoying a relaxing 90-minute cruise on Lake Mead.
