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.
  • Half- or full-day kayaking tour on the Colorado River from Las Vegas
  • Choose between a half-day or full-day tour
  • Pick between two different departure times
  • Enjoy snacks or lunch depending what tour you’re on
  • Las Vegas hotel pickup and drop-off is included
  • This tour isn’t recommended for people with back problems or serious medical conditions

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.

Great day could not recommend it more . Great company is its staff and ours was safe and fun and really helped you enjoy your trip with their sincere enjoyment of what they do! From Liz at the office to our guides Lauren and Ryan what a team.. Lauren picked us up at our hotel right on time at 8:30 am and returned us at 3 pm . Great driver and strong fun guide .We were on the water at 10:30 and back to the marina at 1:30. Beautiful canyon with crystal clear water and make sure you take a swim its so fantastic !

Thank you to our amazing Guides Morgan and Lauren- my family had the greatest Las Vegas Family experience. A beautiful day of Kayaking, a hike with botany points shared, the beautful canyons and the Glittery green hues of The Emerald cave. The guides were thoughtful inclusive competent learned and made each of us feel completely taken care of. . No small feat when the age range in our 12 person convoy went from 12 to 73. A must do for a family experience- my kids woke up talking about it.

I have a new appreciation for the earth's beauty. The views from the kayaking trip were awesome. Ryan encouraged fun, but be prepared for the physical workout. Loved it.

I really loved this tour... the landscape was more beautiful than I imagined... We could enter in a cave and we also could stop a little bit to swim at the Colorado River. I took the half day tour by myself, and I think it was perfect, because you don't get too tired.
The tour guides were very gentle. I definitely recommend this tour.

Go Morgan! Would highly recommend this trip with blazing paddles to anyone. Safe and orofessional. Me and my girlfriend had a great day out on the water with tour guide Morgan.

WOW, What a great experience!!!! This half-day trip was an amazing value which included round-trip transportation to/from the hotel, all of the gear Kayak, Life-jacket, paddle, water and snacks, experienced/knowledgeable/friendly/cool guides, and beautiful scenery. The whole trip was very well organized which maximized our time on the water. Even if you've never paddled before, don't let that stop you from doing this trip...the guides will help you and you'll have a blast. If you're an experienced paddler, you'll definitely appreciate this trip however, if you have a little extra time and want more time on the water, do the full day trip.

I agree with the other review that said this was the highlight of the trip to Vegas. Don't miss it.

Final note: Tip the guides to show a little appreciation. They did a lot of work to ensure our trip was enjoyable and safe.

This was the best thing we did in Las Vegas. Blazin' Paddles hosts a terrific water experience! We did the Full-Day, and will include this trip with some of our most memorable experiences in our 18 years of travel together!
