US$ 151.00
2 travellers
Escape the craziness of Las Vegas for a day on the beautiful Colorado River. You will be transported to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and then near the base of the Hoover Dam to board your raft for a smooth water trip through the Black Canyon. Enjoy magnificent views of the Hoover Dam and the surrounding cliffs. A day trip not to be missed!
  • Explore the Black Canyon National Water Trail with a guide
  • Float down the Colorado River on a motorized raft
  • Views of Hoover Dam and the bypass bridge from the river
  • Hassle-free round-trip transport from select Las Vegas hotels
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 points out features of the dam and shares 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 (included) 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.

I booked this trip with trepidation as my 80+ mum has mobility difficulties. Pleasantly surprised to be picked up in a limo van complete with disco lighting and bar (only water), we were then taken to near Lake Mead where reusable water bottles were issued and washrooms visited

Great fun - be prepared to get wet, unless you’re located back by the pilot. The ride starts with a transfer to the super secure area at the base of the Hoover Dam. After boarding and a safety talk, there is a lot of info about the dam itself. Then it’s off down the Colorado
