Colorado River Boat Rides From Las Vegas

Colorado River Boat Rides From Las Vegas

A welcome respite from the glitz of the Las Vegas Strip, a boat ride on the Colorado River provides the chance to admire the natural scenery of the American Southwest. Here are some options depending on your interests, from low to high intensity.

Rafting

White-water rafting through the Grand Canyon is one of the most popular ways to explore the Colorado River. As you navigate the river rapids, you can take in the beauty of the canyon from its lowest point. Calm rafting experiences are also available on certain sections of the Colorado River, such as Black Canyon or the base of the Hoover Dam, where a large, stable, motorized raft provides a scenic ride with a guide.

River rafting day trips from Vegas make for long days, typically lasting 15 to 17 hours and including a guide and lunch. Some tours include transport from Las Vegas hotels while others give travelers the option to drive themselves to the launch point. Most Grand Canyon combo tours include a boat ride inside the canyon, but others may visit other nearby sites.

Cruising

Tours to the Grand Canyon West Rim from Vegas often combine a river cruise with activities such as a helicopter ride or a visit to the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Typically, you'll travel either by vehicle or helicopter from the city to Grand Canyon West, and then descend to the canyon floor (also by helicopter) to board a pontoon boat. This stable vessel takes you on a relaxing journey along the river, usually about 15 minutes long. Tour duration ranges from 3.5 to 12 hours depending on the activities included.
