What exactly will we see on the tour?
On our scenic jet boat ride, you will start in Laughlin, Nevada and travel 58 miles on the Colorado River. We will pass amazing wildlife and scenery on the route to Topock Gorge. After the Gorge we’ll head to the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Enjoy two hours of fun on the Island right next to the London Bridge, 4 great eateries, and then we’ll head back!
Is the tour narrated?
Every now and then we will slow down and tell you all about the sights we are seeing. When the boat is going fast it’s difficult to provide narration, but we’ll do the best we can! There will be a $1 tour guidebook that you can purchase upon check-in that will explain everything you’ll see along the way. Bring money if you’re interested in getting the guidebook!
What time zone are you in?
Although we are located close to the border of Arizona and Nevada, all times listed are local Nevada time, which is the Pacific time zone. From the 1st Sunday of November through the 2nd Sunday in March, Arizona is one hour ahead of Nevada. If you’re coming from Arizona, please keep in mind that local times will differ by an hour during that time period, even if you’re just a short ride away.
Is the tour suitable for pregnant women?
The tour should be safe for pregnant women up to their 6th or 7th month of pregnancy. The ride can get a little bit bumpy from time to time, so pregnant women in the later part of their pregnancy should consult their doctors before participating.
Are there any foods or beverages available on the boat?
Unfortunately there won’t be any foods or beverages available for purchase on board the jet boat, but you will be able to eat and drink as much as you like at London Bridge!

Can I bring alcohol on the boat?
Sure! Feel free to bring alcohol on board as long as it’s not in a glass bottle. Also we recommend a limit of two beverages per person on board. Keep in mind that there are no restrooms on the jet boat, so you will have to wait until you arrive at the Island Mall to use the restroom.
What restaurants are available at London Bridge?

How should I dress for the seasonal temperature / weather?
We suggest that you dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather. Please keep in mind that Laughlin gets pretty hot from May through September. We’ll have the boat totally open air during these months to let in a refreshing breeze, but you still won’t need a jacket. We suggest wearing light, breathable fabrics to help you stay cool. Also, please don’t forget your sunglasses, hat and sunscreen. During the cooler months don’t forget your sweatshirt or jacket. Boats are enclosed with real glass windows in the cooler months.
Am I likely to get seasick?
It is very unlikely that you will get seasick. In windy or high traffic days it can get a little bumpy at times, similar to driving along a dirt road. If you are particularly prone to motion sickness, you may want to consider taking preventative measures beforehand.
