I think there is one at Park Moabi
London Bridge area

Anyone know how long it takes to go from laughlin to havasu? (by boat obviously!) Always thought that would be a fun trip to make.
boats are a wood lined hole in the water into which you pour money

I rode my stand up jet ski from Havasu Springs to Laughlin in about 5 hours. In the boat from Davis Camp to London Bridge I would estimate it took 2 to 3 hours. Its a fun trip to make.

My wife wants to know why you would do that?

Haa haa.. Actually it was quite fun. Like I said it was not on a sit down Sea Doo but a stand up Yamaha Super Jet. We rode to Laughlin, stayed the night at Harrahs, n then rode back to Park Moabi where somebody picked us up. I have actually ridden every bit of river / lake from McIntyre in Blythe to as close as you can possibly get to the Hoover Dam on my Jet Ski. This was back when I was younger and had no kids. I guess its the same concept as why would you take a Harley out on a road trip? In my opinion stand up jet ski's are VERY fun to ride and dont get boring like the lame sit downs. BTW the stretch of river from Willow Beach up to the Hoover damn is incredible. The water is very cold but the canyon is impressive. Rounding the bend to look up at the dam is impressive and eerie all in the same time ( I did this before 9/11 and have since heard you can not get as close as you used to be able to). Anyways as to why would do that? I guess just to say I did it and actually had a ton of fun at the same time.
