The Desert Belle Tour Boat
Immerse Yourself in the Breathtaking Sights of Saguaro Lake
Just a short drive away from north Scottsdale is Saguaro Lake, a beautiful oasis in the midst of the dynamic environment of the desert. On Saguaro Lake, the best way to take in the sightseeing opportunities that the area holds is to take one of the lake’s famous sightseeing cruises on the Desert Belle.
Why the Desert Belle Tour Boat Deserves a Spot on Your “Must-See” List
With an extensive route that takes visitors around the lake on a cruise that lasts an hour and a half, The Desert Belle exposes those on board to the otherworldly atmosphere of Arizona. From unique wildlife to panoramic vistas and monolithic canyon walls, it’s the ideal way to experience the dramatic landscape of the desert.
Tours on the Desert Belle are narrated, providing further insight into the fascinating natural history of Saguaro Lake and the surrounding area. Drinks are available on the boat as well, including beer and wine, making it the perfect outing for taking in a desert sunset with a glass of wine or a palatable beer.
Additionally, the boat departs for its cruises regardless of whether it rains—a rare and happy event in Arizona when it does happen—allowing visitors to soak up the desert experience during any time of the year from the comfort of the boat’s enclosed and air-conditioned portions. In the rare instance that tours are cancelled due to the weather, visitors are allowed to reschedule to another time.
