Black Canyon Kayak Day Trip from Las Vegas
From US$220.99
Paddle through Nevada’s Black Canyon, a natural gorge of the Colorado River, on this kayak day trip from Las Vegas, a great choice for nature lovers. Take short guided hikes to explore caves and hot springs, and have lunch on a riverside beach. Marvel at the canyon’s spectacular natural scenery and keep an eye out for native wildlife. Plus, hotel pickup and drop-off are included for a seamless experience.
What to Expect
Start your tour with early pickup from select Las Vegas hotels in an air-conditioned coach and a short drive to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

Meet your guide and head down to the kayak launching point on the riverbank below Hoover Dam. After a short safety briefing, hop in your kayak and paddle downstream along the Black Canyon section of the Colorado River.

Stop at Sauna Cave, where you can choose between two short guided hikes or opt to wait for your group on the riverbank. The easy trails lead to hot springs where you can swim. Kayak for several more miles, and then stop for lunch on a secluded riverside beach.

After a final stop at Emerald Cave, finish your paddling trip on the Arizona side of the river at Willow Beach. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in Las Vegas.

I did this trip as a solo traveler in October 2017, there were two other paddlers as well as the guide. I had an excellent time.
