Leave the bustle of Las Vegas behind for a full-day kayak trip through the Black Canyon on the Colorado River. Perfect for paddlers of all skill levels, this trip covers several miles of calm water near Hoover Dam, with stops to explore caves, beaches, hot springs and canyons. Throughout the day, your experienced guide points out wildlife, historical sites, hidden inlets and beautiful hikes along the river. Kayaking equipment, instruction, and lunch are included; you just need to bring your personal gear (think cameras and hats) for a great day on the water!
Our most popular Colorado River Experience! This exciting and adventurous day on the river is the best value for those wanting the most "bang for their buck." You need only show up with a smile and ready for fun!
This section of Black Canyon is moving flat-water, it is not a whitewater trip. It is perfect for all levels of paddlers. Your day will begin as you meet your guide and prepare for the thrilling ride down the Lower Portal Road - the only road to the base of Hoover Dam. As you drop 1100' in elevation, the mighty Hoover Dam presents itself.
Your guide will show you unique and hidden places such as Gold Strike Canyon, Lone Palm Canyon, Arizona Hot Springs, Emerald Cave and many other treats. You may see big horn sheep, bald eagles, coyotes, red-tail hawks, turkey vultures, striped bass, and more.
Remember to wear a bathing suit for soaking in the natural hot springs. Your day will also include a picnic lunch on a secluded beach that will provide you with million dollar views. Paddle into Emerald Cave and check out the historic catwalk.
Your day ends at Willow Beach, where an air-conditioned shuttle will transport you back to your hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.
