Ride aboard the Starship 2010, a 47' custom built shallow draft vessel with a climate controlled cabin and restroom. It is U.S.C.G. certified and operated by U.S.C.G licensed captains. Family owned Bluewater Charters L.L.C. has been offering tours of the Topock Gorge and Lake Havasu from the same location in the Bridgewater Channel since 1988. All tours are historically narrated and wildlife sightings are common. so bring your binoculars. Don't have any? We've got some you can borrow. Three trip options are available. #1 is a 2.5hr round trip of Topock Gorge #2 is the same trip with lunch at Pirate Cove #3 is a 3hr lake cruise viewing local lighthouses and timed to catch one of Lake Havasu's beautiful sunsets Topock Gorge Tour Depart London Bridge and travel across the north basin of Lake Havasu and into the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge on our way to Topock Gorge. We commonly see Desert Bighorn Sheep, Wild Burro, Coyote, and others as well as some of the 394 different species of birds and water fowl that either live in or migrate through the areas. We will see 3,000 year old Indian Petroglyphs, interesting rock formations like the Star Gazer. Through the more scenic parts we will be traveling at idle speed as our crew talks about the history of the area. From Indian Legends and early explorers to stories of how paddle wheelers made the difficult journeys to supply army camps and eventually carry out gold and silver oar out before the dams were built. The Sunset Lighthouse Lake Cruise is a 3hr cruise that will take you south from the London Bridge to Steamboat Cove, a common hang out for all Desert Bighorn Sheep. On our way we will also enter into Copper Canyon and Balanced Rock Bay. Along the way we will pull up to several famous and historic lighthouses. Scaled versions from around the country. These lighthouses perform as aids to navigation here on Lake Havasu. you will hear about the history of the area, each lighthouse and the London Bridge. This cruise is timed to catch the sunset so departure times will vary.

Great trip! Comfy seats and great crew. Fantastic views of Topock Gorge that you can see no other way than by boat. A must-see when visiting Havasu.

The jet boat captain/guide has a very monotone voice, so it made listening to him rather dull. There is not much narration on the trip. But it is a nice boat ride.
