'The Phoenix' Cruise Boat is located at Pleasant Harbor Marina in Peoria, Arizona. Please note we are NOT located at Scorpion Bay Marina. Pleasant Harbor Marina is located at the southeast corner of Lake Pleasant, off Carefree Highway (74). Turn at 87th Ave. and head north to the point of entry gate.

Go through the point of entry gate. There is a $9/car ($2/person on a chartered bus) entry fee to get into the park. Veterans receive FREE gate entry with ID.

Parking is available in the paved lot next to the fire station, with the blue canopy. After you park you may wait under the blue canopy for a golf cart shuttle or take the 5-10 minute walk down to the marina. Shuttles run 24/7 to and from the blue canopy. Please note the shuttle service is provided by Pleasant Harbor, not Lake Pleasant Cruises. The shuttle ride is FREE, but tips are appreciated and encouraged.



Arriving at Pleasant Harbor

Please plan to arrive at least 45 minutes before cruise departure, to allow for sufficient travel time from the parking lot to the marina. Pleasant Harbor charges a $9.00 per vehicle ($2.00 per person on chartered buses) entry fee. Veterans receive FREE gate entry with ID. Shuttle golf carts will pick you up in the parking lot at the blue canopy and bring you down to the floating marina. The shuttle ride is FREE, but tips are appreciated and encouraged.
