What You Can Expect

Hoover Dam Top to Bottom by Luxury SUV with Colorado River Float

Hoover Dam Top to Bottom by Luxury SUV with Colorado River Float

The Hoover Dam by Luxury SUV and Colorado River Float offers ample time for exploring this National Historic Landmark and engineering wonder of the world. See live presentations, a fascinating film on the Dam's construction and history, exhibit gallery, observation deck, and venture down to the observation room in the power plant to view the massive generators.

You'll also encounter dramatic views of both the Colorado River and Lake Mead, the largest man-made body of water in the Western Hemisphere. From the Lake Mead Overlook, you're transported to the Colorado River by van on the Lower Portal Road, where construction crews traveled each day. You'll see the original gauging station used to measure water level and flow, and dynamite storage bunkers used during construction.

Then, a guided Colorado River float tour by raft offers you close-up views few people have ever seen of Hoover Dam, mighty power plants, and Black Canyon. You'll also learn historical facts and get an astounding view of the Hoover Dam Bypass project and construction of the nearly 2,000-foot-long bridge spanning over 900 feet above the river. This tour offers absolutely the best photo opportunity of the Hoover Dam and Colorado River!

Please note: due to low water levels at the Hoover Dam, this tour will not be available from October 30, 2012 to November 1, 2012.

Trip was excellent!!! The tour was educational, interesting, and fun. Our tour guide was one of the best. He gave us information from the time we left the hotel till we returned. He was friendly and made sure everyone was together and could have the best view of the dam. He even takes great pictures for you! Enjoyed the boat ride and the tour inside the dam. We would do this tour again it was so good. We had perfect weather for the boat ride and the tour.

Jerry met us on time and was a great guide with an excellent sense of humour. he kept us informed throughout the trip - remembered everyone by name and was a credit to your Company. He made the trip interesting as he was extremely knowledgeable about the various sites we went to. it's unlikely we will be back but maybe Jerry might move to another area where we can have him again. Many thanks for a really good Tour

Tommy, our damn dam guide was one of the best guides that we have ever had on any excursion that we have ever done. He went above and beyond our expectations. The tour itself was pretty fascinating to learn more about the Dam. Would definitely recommend this tour especially if Tommy is your guide.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

It was hot but our guide in the jeep kept us supplied with bottled water all along the trip. The trip was hot under the blazing sun, but our guide made up for it with her commentary and taking us out of the itinerary to see the mountain goats. She is great for the jeep company
