Description

Experience the incredible beauty of the Colorado River on this awe-inspiring kayaking expedition just 45 minutes out of Las Vegas. A 4-mile (6.4-km) round trip takes you out through the stunning Black Canyon, with stops at a historic overlook and the enchanting Emerald Cave.

The journey starts at the idyllic Willow Beach, where you take your gear and kayak and paddle out with your expert guide. Check out the towering walls of Black Canyon as they rise around you, framing the spectacular desert landscape and the serene waters of the river. You can spot bald eagles wheeling overhead, and bighorn sheep along the banks, as you make your way upstream.

Make a pit stop to gaze down on the mighty river from a historic overlook, and then discover more breathtaking beauty at Emerald Cave—named for its green waters that glimmer like emeralds when the sun hits at just the right angle. After you've explored this magical cavern, it's time to start paddling back downstream to end your adventure with a return to Willow Beach.

The scenery was beautiful and the weather was perfect. Our guide Dani was wonderful. She picked us up from our hotel on the strip and was super friendly and engaging the entire time. We met up with the rest of the group at the Hoover Dam Lodge. It was a nice small group and we all quickly became comfortable with each other and had a fantastic time. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area as well as the wildlife and plant life. I would highly recommend this activity. This is a great outdoor adventure for beginners as well as novices. I will definitely be going through Blazing Paddles again.
