Texan Approved.

Honestly, the best part of this trip is the trip up and down the river itself. The cave is cool but it’s really just a crescendo on the journey. The river and mountains are beautiful and need to be experienced in person to really grasp the enormity and grace of it all. Zack guided us and was exceptionally knowledgeable on the history, flora and fauna of the area. He is also very astute and made sure that we were all safe and within range of him at all times. We will absolutely be returning for another kayak trip when we visit Nevada again.

The journey back from the cave with additional areas of green water which combined with the mountains for very dramatic scenery. We also saw big horn sheep on the way to the marina, bald eagles and other wild life as we paddled down the river

This tour was even better than the description. We spent four hours kayaking on the beautiful Colorado River with a stop at the Emerald Cave in the middle. A tour guide can make or break a tour and our guide, Preston, definitely made our tour fantastic! He was fun, funny, knowledgeable, and friendly. I can’t wait to come back and do another tour with River Dogz!

This was AMAGING! I was picked up from my hotel (Bally’s) on time…Zach was our tour guide..there were 7 of us (small group). It was a hour drive from the LV strip..everyone wore their mask in side the van..I was a newby at Kyaking. I was nervous once I got settled in the kayak and on the water…Zach and Bill coached me along the way until I got the hang of it. The scenery was breathtaking. The water was calm and relaxing.. We made a stop off the river, which was a small hike to the top of the mountain…the view was spectacular. Zach gave us the history of the River bank which was impressive..then we continued to proceeded to the cave. Once inside the green (Emerald) water was beautiful. I took a lot of pics…tried to upload some with my post but it kept saying error. This was worth the price. It was not a rushed tour..very well put together.

Amazing Kayaking Tour at the Emerald Cave

The overall experience was great! However, the Emerald Cave was beautiful; the clear green water was beautiful and refreshing. The water was calm; it was a great first experience. Preston did an amazing job as a tour guid to make us feel comfortable and at ease. He was very courteous and professional, as well as friendly and trustworthy.
