    Your adventure begins on the outskirts of Boulder City in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

This trip is fully narrated by experienced, knowledgeable guides who offer incredible history of the Hoover Dam and the Back Canyon National Water trail. A refreshing stop along the way at a side beach will give you the opportunity to stretch your legs, swim or play in the cool clear water of the Colorado River. Lunch is included in a take-home, insulated souvenir bag. Your tour will end at the Willow Beach Marina in the scenic Mohave desert of Arizona, where you will board your shuttle back to where you started from. ~ Don't Forget Your Camera ~
