  • From Las Vegas: Black Canyon Half-Day Kayak Tour

    2. From Las Vegas: Black Canyon Half-Day Kayak Tour

    Following pick-up from your approved hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, escape the city and journey by comfortable Mercedes Sprinter to the start point of your kayak adventure into the Black Canyon. Arrive at Willow Beach and prepare for the day ahead as your guides help fit you into your kayaks. Paddle upstream into the narrow channels of the Black Canyon, and scour the banks to spot a variety of wildlife, including native Desert Big Horn Sheep and Bald Eagles. Continue for approximately 1 mile, and then stop at an historical overlook for awe-inspiring views of the legendary Colorado River. Listen to an explanation about the immense history of what the river has been used for over the past 100 years. Enjoy a complimentary snack before setting off for the stunning rock formation of Emerald Cave on your way back to the starting point.

    Our first Kayak experience was educational and fun! For our 1st time (tandem kayak)the 3 hr. tour on the water was a great introduction on the Colorado river. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided lots of information as we traveled to and from Willow Beach. We were picked up at a hotel in Las Vegas and it took about 30 minutes to arrive. Instructions were given for getting in/out of the kayak, paddling, and putting on/off your life jacket, plus other little tidbits on the kayak itself. Emerald Cave was much smaller than I expected (from the website pics) and to see the colors the westerly sun needs to hit the inside of the cave for all the colors. Overall I'm happy we had the adventure!
