Kayak down the Colorado River on this half- or full-day tour from Las Vegas. Since you pick between a 4-mile (6.4-km) trip or a 12-mile (19.3-km) trip, it’s up to you how much time to spend on the water. Both options give you amazing sights of the area, and you might even spot wildlife as you paddle along. The main difference is the full-day allows for more stops and also offers lunch — the half-day experience only offers snacks.
What to Expect

No matter which option you picked for this kayaking tour on the Colorado River, it’ll start the same way — getting picked up from your Las Vegas hotel. If you prefer, you can also meet at the local operator’s office, which is about 30 minutes from the Strip.  

From there, if you’re on the half-day tour, you’ll arrive at Willow Beach. Once your guide has assigned everyone in your group a kayak, start your journey by paddling upstream into Black Canyon. Enjoy beautiful sights as you travel through and stop for a snack. Make your way to Emerald Cave where you can take a dip in the emerald-green-colored water before going back to Willow Beach.  

If you’re on the full-day tour, you’ve got a much longer tour in store filled with gorgeous views. Launch your kayak at the base of Hoover Dam, and follow your guide to a historical overlook one mile up the river. Here, you may see some of the regions’ wildlife, including bighorn sheep and bald eagles.

Continue to Black Canyon, and admire your surroundings. Afterward, reach a 100-degree hot springs, and then break for lunch on a beach. Your last stop is at Emerald Cave. Head to Willow Beach to call it a day and get shuttled back to your hotel.

Please note: In order for the local operator to obtain the necessary permits for this tour ALL traveler names must be provided as they appear on a government-issued ID such as a driver's license or passport. Your tour will not be confirmed unless all names are provided. Please ensure all names are spelled correctly, names cannot be changed once reservation is submitted.
