Your cruise begins as our captain and crew welcome you aboard the Colorado King. Seating is available on the open-air upper deck or the main deck's enclosed area which features a small snack bar and restroom. As you freely walk around this one-of-a-kind paddleboat, the captain begins his narration, which includes points of interest, a fascinating history of the Colorado and the stories about riverboats and their captains who once navigated the untamed Colorado River over a century ago.
Covered in news stories across the desert southwest, the King and her cruise are one of a kind.
