Dolly Steamboat Narrated Cruise

Explore the desert on the water on the Dolly Steamboat Narrated Cruise. The 90-minute cruise offers a unique look at the canyon walls and desert wildlife.

Sonoran Desert Hummer Adventure Tours

The Hummer H1 is a capable vehicle (second to the Ford F-150 Raptor) that can take on terrain that would leave many vehicles disabled and stranded. The Sonoran Desert Hummer Adventure Tour offers an exciting look at the natural terrain surrounding Phoenix. Several tour options allow Labor Day weekend visitors to choose the one that most interests them. Learn more about the area’s history or hear Apache legends surrounding the Superstition Mountains.
