WOW!! Absolutely amazing!! Largest wet find ever. Steamboat Arabia is a MUST see! Well worth the money for sure!! You go on a 45 min. guided tour and then watch a 15 min video. After that you will tour around the "boat" on your own. Very impressive! We were able to meet David, one of the owners/diggers, which was an even bigger plus. Every person here knows the history and they are eager to share. Go ENJOY!! Thanks to the good Lord for guiding these 5 willing families in this find!! We appreciate you all standing on Faith and bringing this beauty up.

Very interesting. And totally worth the admission fee! One of the excavation team, David, happened to be here today. So a few people got to ask great questions. Ashlee was a great tour guide. Well come back to bring my family/friends when they finish.
