What You Can Expect

Black Canyon River Rafting Tour

Black Canyon Rafting Tour

Accompanied by your friendly and informative guide, you'll travel to the launch area at the base of the Hoover Dam for a view of the dam that very few people have the opportunity to see. The large, comfortable rafts have multiple air chambers and are outfitted with all the Coast Guard required and recommended safety equipment.

The Black Canyon's high walls will leave you breathless, so remember to bring your camera! You may spot desert big horn sheep, osprey and great blue heron in their natural setting. The raft stops along the shore to give you a chance to swim or paddle in the cool clear waters below Hoover Dam. You could take this opportunity to enjoy the box lunch provided, while watching and listening to the sights and sounds of this magnificent desert.

Your trip ends on the Arizona side of the river at Willow Beach, where you will have the chance to shop for distinctive souvenirs of your trip, before returning to your Las Vegas hotel.

Brilliant and the guide was great and very knowledgeable. A fantastic experience well worth doing you really miss something if you don't! The sights are magnificent and a natural wonder. You will need to take sunscreen and casual clothing as there may be some spray over the bow of the raft but nothing to worry about. This is not wild river rafting but very safe and controlled for your enjoyment.

Loved this tour! It was beautiful, and our tour guide was excellent and very informative! It was very warm that day, but our tour guide kept us as cool as possible with towels soaked in the cold river water. It helped tremendously!
