Dolly Steamboat Extends Special Offer to Realtors/Biz Owners

Dolly Steamboat Extends Special Offer to Realtors, Auto Dealerships/Managers, Business Owners

Now is the perfect time to enjoy the natural beauty of our desert aboard the Dolly Steamboat! There is simply no better way to “escape!” The majestic sternwheeler takes guests around Canyon Lake and into the soaring canyons to show off the beauty, vistas and wildlife surrounding one of our most beautiful lakes!

PR Director and namesake for the Dolly Steamboat, Dolly Kennedy is seen around the Valley in turn-of-the-century dress spreading word about the beauty that people experience and the memories that are made aboard the Steamboat. Look for her at your local market, gas station or mall. Be sure to say, “Hello, Dolly!” and she may just have a special surprise for you!

At this beautiful time of the year, the Dolly Steamboat has a special promotional offer. Purchase 10 Dolly Steamboat gift certificates that have no expiration date. These may be used as sales incentives or performance rewards! Kennedy explains, “It’s something I’ve been thinking about for quite awhile. Realtors, especially, are extremely receptive to the idea. However, they are just one group of many. In actuality, anyone that sends gifts on a regular basis could benefit from this offer. Realtors just happened to be the first group that came to mind because they continuously have homebuyers.” What better way to introduce someone to our Valley than via the Dolly Steamboat at Canyon Lake!

There is an added incentive for purchasing 10 gift certificates at a time. “When you do this, you always have them in your ‘back pocket’ to hand out whenever they’re needed,” Kennedy says. “The promotional gift certificates can be either day or evening tours. For every 10 you purchase, you get one free.”

There are many businesses that can benefit from this special Dolly Steamboat offer, including auto dealership owners or sales managers. “I think it would be fantastic for them to recognize their sales people with a gift... A dinner cruise aboard the Dolly Steamboat,” adds Kennedy. “It could also be for anyone that has a sales staff or appreciates their team.

Contact the Dolly Steamboat office at (480) 827-9144 to take advantage of this special offer!

The 2 and 1/2 hour Twilight Dinner Cruise includes a fantastic buffet dinner, complete with chef’s choice of dessert. An airline style bar is available to purchase cocktails, wine and beer. Catering is provided by Brown Brothers Catering of Arizona and the menu includes two entrees - beef and chicken. The food alone continually receives rave reviews! Watch the sun sink behind the cliffs and capture the desert beauty as the moon rises and the stars reveal themselves.

Once a month, there is a very special 2 ½ hour Astronomy Cruise (including dinner) with “Dr. Sky” on board. Steve Kates, aka “Dr. Sky,” gives a narration about the galaxy of stars and will interpret the constellations in a fun and engaging way.
