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 feet in elevation, the mighty face of the dam presents itself. Here you will unload boats and equipment for your journey through Black Canyon. After a short safety briefing along with some basic paddling instruction, youll be on your way.

Our most popular trip Experience! This exciting and educational day on the river is the best option for those who want to get the most for their money. All that is required of you is that you show up with a smile and ready to have some fun! This section of the Colorado is moving flat water, it is not a white water trip. It is perfect for first timers or seasoned paddlers. Our entertaining and experienced guides will make certain you don't miss a thing!
Your first stop will be Sauna Cave; an exploratory cave dug by the Bureau of Reclamation before they built the Hoover Dam. Check out the minerals in the back, or perhaps sweat out the pitcher of margaritas you drank last night.
Throughout the day your expert guide will stop and show you unique and hidden places such as Gold Strike Canyon, Lone Palm Canyon, Emerald Cave and many other treats. Your guide will inform you of the historical significance of many river features and about the wildlife that inhabits the area. Some creatures you may see are Big Horn Sheep, Bald Eagles, Coyotes, Red Tail Hawks, Turkey Vultures, and more.
The most popular attraction along the river is not your guide, but the natural hot springs and hot waterfalls that are hidden within slot canyons. Be sure to wear a bathing suit or something to wear while sitting in the mineral tubs. They contain many natural minerals, and the healing properties are well documented. This is the same thing you pay big bucks for in the Las Vegas spas. Here, in Black Canyon, you get your own natural hot spring absolutely free! You will have ample time to enjoy a relaxing soak while on your scenic journey!
Your day will also include a nice picnic lunch on a secluded beach or rock that will provide you with million dollar views and great company. This entire experience is one that will leave you wanting more and more. It is one of the most striking yet peaceful places on Earth, and to think it is only 30 minutes from Las Vegas! Your trip ends at Willow Beach, Arizona where an air conditioned shuttle vehicle will meet you to take you back to your hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.
