Dinner and Luxury River Cruises

Experience Arkansas on Family Riverboat Cruises


Belle of the OzarksAll Aboard! In Arkansas, there are a wide variety of ways to enjoy our scenic rivers and lakes. Why not jump aboard a paddle wheeler, riverboat or passenger vessel for luxury lake cruises or river outings and see The Natural State from a different perspective?

The Belle of the Ozarks offers passengers an eco-tour of scenic Beaver Lake in Eureka Springs. Board an open-air passenger vessel and prepare for a spectacular adventure. During the 75-minute tour, you'll see an ancient Native American burial ground, pass along a 200-acre game preserve island (be on the lookout for swimming deer!) and observe Beaver Lake's natural residents. Beaver Lake's picturesque shoreline tantalizes photographers throughout the 12-mile cruise. Special cruises, such as their annual Eagle Watch Weekend, are also offered.
The Mark Twain
An authentic stern wheeler, the Mark Twain plies the Arkansas River, docking in North Little Rock. It offers formal or casual dining for day or evening and a bar with full view windows on the Main Deck. The vessel is one of the few authentic paddle wheel boats in existence. The first deck is climate-controlled for year-round cruising while the second deck is open-air. The boat is available for private charters and luxury river cruises.

Belle of Hot Springs Experience the beauty of Hot Springs' Lake Hamilton from the deck of the Belle of Hot Springs. The captain serves as your narrator as you glide along Lake Hamilton, enjoying the breathtaking views of the lake, the Ouachita Mountains and natural islands from the riverboat. Bask under the stars for a night of dinner and dancing on one of their sunset luxury river cruises. Spend a relaxing afternoon gazing at the stunning vistas on one of the lunch family riverboat cruises. A sightseeing cruise and an ice cream social cruise (perfect for those hot days of summer) are also offered throughout the year.

Belle of the Bay
In the north central Arkansas Ozarks, the Belle of the Bay offers various types of cruises including dinner, scenic, sunset and special event cruises on 40,000-acre Greers Ferry Lake. The boat also does shuttle cruises to Sugar Loaf Mountain in the middle of the lake. Private rentals are also available.
