6-Hour Black Canyon and Colorado River by Motorized Raft Tour from Las Vegas
From US$145.99
Overview
Float down the Colorado River with a guide on this stress-free tour from Las Vegas, a great choice for nature lovers and first-time visitors. Take a gentle ride aboard a motorized raft as you explore the Black Canyon National Water Trail. Enjoy views of Hoover Dam and the canyon’s spectacular natural scenery, and keep an eye out for native wildlife such as desert bighorn sheep and ospreys.
What to Expect
Your morning begins with pickup from select Las Vegas hotels in an air-conditioned coach and a short drive to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

On arrival at Lake Mead, check in and head down to the riverbank below Hoover Dam to board a motorized raft for your 3-hour float through Black Canyon, a natural gorge of the Colorado River. Your guide will point out features of the dam and share interesting facts about the area during the 12-mile (19-kilometer) ride through the canyon.

Enjoy views of Hoover Dam and the bypass bridge overhead, and keep an eye out for native wildlife such as desert bighorn sheep, great blue heron, eagles, ospreys, and more. Then stop to have lunch on a riverside beach.

Finish your Colorado River float on the Arizona side of the river at Willow Beach, and then hop back in the coach and end your tour with hotel drop-off in Las Vegas.

Glad you enjoyed your adventure in the Black Canyon Water Trail. Sounds like you traveled with Desert Adventures out of Boulder City. We are the rafting company but we will pass this review on to them!
