What people are saying about Lake Mead National Recreation Area

This tour was amazing! Our guide Chris took care of us to the fullest. He was there explaining how to kayak since it was our first time. He also explained about the environment around us and answered any questions. We never felt rushed and he unlike many guides stayed with the people in the back of the group to ensure we were all doing alright. My kayak filled with water towards the end and his quick thinking saved me. He was able to empty it out and we began on the journey back. I definitely recommend booking with him if you are new to kayaking or even want to enjoy the tour without the pressure of being rushed!

My family and I absolutely loved this activity. The scenery was amazing. Kayaking was very relaxing. Robert, our guide, was friendly, easy to talk to, respectful at all times, and always watching over the group making sure we were safe. Such an easy going guy. I will recommend to family and friends.
