Granddaughter's 12th birthday celebration was most enjoyable on this lake cruise. Captain Steve was very patient with the children and safety conscious. Allowing the birthday girl to steer the boat made her day very special. He shared a lot of history of wheeler lake. Enjoyed...More

The cruise is amazing! We took an early one at about 7 o'clock. The wild life was everywhere we even saw Otters! The Captain was very kind and helpful! I whole heartedly recommend taking a cruise if you're at Joe wheeler park.

Captain Jack was very helpful and accommodating. Took us on a cruise next to Wheeler Dam while explaining some of the history of the area. Would do it again.

$15 for adults for a the 2:00 pm tour which lasted about 1 hour and 40 minutes. A good value in my opinion.

I honestly have no idea, we went as a group so I didn't pay. The best time for us was around 7 o'clock in the morning! There was so much wildlife at that point. Hope I was able to help at least a little bit. Enjoy.
