Special Events

Witness the 4th of July Fireworks or the Hot Air Balloon Ascension during Havasu Balloon Festival from the waters of Lake Havasu!

Every year Sunset Charter & Tour Co. takes visitors out on Lake Havasu for two very special events:
  • Mass Ascension Tours during Havasu Balloon Festival every January
  • 4th of July Fireworks

Mass Ascension Tours

Join the festivities every morning of the Havasu Balloon Festival on board the Kon Tiki Canyon Cruiser. The best way to watch the hot air balloons ascend and float over Lake Havasu is on the water. There is something truly magical of seeing the hot air balloons take to the sky out in the middle of Thompson Bay! It's the best way to have an unobstructed view and an up close and personal experience with the balloons! The Mass Ascension Tour is 90 Minutes departing each morning of the Festival at 7:45 am and is $30 per person plus tax. Children prices are available. Seats are limited.

4th of July Fireworks

If you're looking for something different to do this 4th of July, join us on an evening tour aboard the Kon Tiki Canyon Cruiser to see the spectacular fireworks of Lake Havasu City over Thompson Bay.  This two hour tour departs at 7:30 pm on July 4th and includes our Copper Canyon Tour and viewing the Fireworks from the water. If you have never experienced the Fireworks from the water, it's definitely a must do! The tour is $35.00 per person plus tax. Children prices are available. Seats are limited.
