Full description

Discover a kayaker’s dream destination – the Emerald Cave and Willow Beach – on this kayaking tour from Las Vegas with a guide and unlimited snacks and drinks. Swim in the cave’s enchanting green water and keep an eye out for wildlife.

After meeting your guide, start with a quick kayaking lesson before gearing up and getting on your kayak.

When paddling toward Emerald Cave, take a break from kayaking and explore breathtaking views of the entire canyon. Get your cameras ready for the desert bighorn sheep, blue heron, and bald eagles.

Marvel at the canyon walls lining Emerald Cave that are 5,000 to 7,000 feet high. During the tour, get the chance to swim in the mystical green water of the Colorado River.

When the sun shines at the right angle, reflections off the sediment on the cave walls make the river water look bright green. The outdoor adventure Sherpa shares that the cave's green waters shine the brightest during the spring and summer months.
