What You'll Do
  • Paddle the easy flat water of the Colorado to beautiful and adventurous spots
  • Soak in natural hot springs and enjoy a picnic lunch with a million-dollar view
  • Watch for bighorn sheep, bald eagles, coyotes, red-tail hawks, turkey vultures, striped bass and more
Canyons sculpted over millions of years, hot springs and the beautiful waters that give Emerald Cave its name are a few reasons why kayaking down the Colorado River with us is an amazingly good way to spend a day, novices and experienced paddlers alike.
What to Expect
An adventurous day kayaking through Black Canyon on the Colorado River offers a whole lot of excitement for your money. But there is no whitewater, so the trip is perfect for first timers as well as seasoned paddlers.

Even before you hit the water, the fun begins as you and your guide descend 1,100 feet down the Lower Portal Road, the only road to the base of Hoover Dam. The lower you go, the higher this mighty dam towers above you.

We provide a short safety briefing and basic paddling instruction to help newcomers get acquainted with their kayak. Then the adventure begins for real as you push off into the Colorado.

Your guide will show you unique, hidden places such as Gold Strike Canyon, Lone Palm Canyon, Arizona Hot Springs and Emerald Cave. You may see bighorn sheep, bald eagles, coyotes, red-tail hawks, turkey vultures, striped bass and other wildlife.

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 or rock that will provide you with a view you could hardly imagine. Paddle into Emerald Cave and check out the historic catwalk.

The journey ends at Willow Beach, where an air-conditioned shuttle will transport you back to your hotel.

Lunches include a sandwich, a piece of fruit, carrots, veggies and ranch dip, and a homemade cookie or similar dessert.

Sandwich selections: Turkey and Cheese, Ham and Cheese, BLT, PB&J, Veggie wrap with hummus and jack cheese on a tortilla, Chicken Caesar Wrap - Caesar dressing served on the side, Chef Salad with meat, cheese, and egg - dressing choice: Greek, 100 isle, ranch, bleu cheese.
Sandwiches are served on wheat bread and lettuce, tomato and onion and include mayo and mustard on the side.
