Cruise, dine, while exploring desert secrets
Out here in the open; mmm – motor-boatin’. That’s the theme song you’ll be living on the Lake Pleasant Sunset Dinner Cruise.
Climb aboard the 150-capacity Phoenix for a delightful, social and informative evening, exploring one of the Valley’s most scenic reservoirs. The captain of your private charter will regale you with commentary about the surrounding mountainous desert’s history, legends, wildlife, flora and fauna, while you relax onboard, scanning the shoreline for wild-burro or bald-eagle sightings.
With a colorful Arizona sunset as backdrop, enjoy onboard a delicious buffet dinner, prepared by Dillon’s Restaurant, featuring prime rib, smoked salmon fillet, side dishes, dessert and non-alcoholic beverages. Add a cocktail or glass of wine, at your expense, from the cash bar. Your cruise boat is climate controlled, for your comfort, and handicapped-accessible. No worries about a weary drive home; your bus driver awaits.
Lake Pleasant is located in Maricopa County’s Lake Pleasant Regional Park, northwest of Peoria. The 23,362-acre park offers many outdoor recreational activities, such as camping, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, picnicking and wildlife viewing. The reservoir is part of the Central Arizona Project waterway system, bringing water from the Lower Colorado River into central and southern Arizona. Lake-water levels can fluctuate throughout the course of the year, with the water typically reaching its highest level in the spring (March/April) and its lowest in the fall (October/November). The acreage of the water can vary from 3,000 acres to almost 10,000 acres at its fullest.
