This was a self guided kayak trip down Black Canyon through Desert Adventures, I am so glad we did. DA were superb, very professional with good quality equipment and first class service. The trip itself was amazing, launching right below the dam, big horn sheep on the canyon walls, hot springs and more. We can't wait to do it again.... More

Thought it was prudent to give these people a review even though we didn't get the opportunity to use them. After multiple attempts to multiple outfitters and receiving silent unofficial endorsements from other companies in the areas without a doubt this is the company we would have used for kayak trip from Hoover Dam down Black canyon. We made multiple... More

First of all, this is a wonderful way to experience some of the amazing beauty not far from Las Vegas. I have paddled this section of the river many times before with family, Boy Scouts and youth groups. It is always a favorite. The view from the bottom of the Hoover Dam, wildlife, hot springs, cliff jumping... This was my... More

What a wonderful day we had paddling down the Colorado River. We took the Black Canyon one-day tour which started at the bottom of Hoover Dam, and that was impressive to say the least. The paddle is approximately 13 miles long, so it's best to know your limitations. Although windy in a few spots which proved a little challenging, the... More

My brother and I did the 12 mile kayak from the base of the Hoover Dam with Reed as our guide. We went on the last day of a packed vacation and were super tired and a little unprepared (no water shoes). Reed was extremely patient and accommodating. We had never kayaked before, so he taught us simple techniques and... More

We visited in April, it was a great time weatherwise (midday was hot but not TOO hot, nights were cool) although they did warn that winds can often be very strong in April.
