We took our teens on the "Postcard Tour" for their first view of the dam and bridge.

Great opportunity to see the part of the Grand Canyon from the Colorado River & learn a lot of history about one of America's greatest engineering feats. Our guide, Brian, was knowledgeable, friendly, and had a great sense of humor. I would definitely recommend this trip.

This trip was one of the highlights of our 12 day holiday to Vegas. If you're looking for a trip that gets you away from the chaos of the strip, or just want to experience a close up encounter with the Black canyon, this was a relaxing and informative meander down the Colorado. Special mention to our river guide, Jeff,... More

It is one thing to do the canyons by helicopter and quite another to do a rafting trip. We had a fabulous day for it and our guide was very knowledgeable and funny. We thoroughly enjoyed the scenery, the peace & quiet throughout the tour. We would do it again.

We rented three kayaks from Black Canyon and had a great time on the Colorado River. The reservation process went smoothly and staff members were friendly. We also luckily went on a Monday so upriver was only open to paddle crafts. I'll definitely rent from this company again if I'm in the area.

A longtime visitor of Willow Beach and Lake Mead, we reserved a boat at Willow Beach the past week and was extremely disappointed in the lack of professionalism of the staff there (especially an extremely rude older woman who has been there for a long time) 1.

The raft ride starts at the foot of the Hoover Dam. The raft pilot that we had (Leslie) took us through the history of the dam construction project and provide great depth of detail about the section of the Colorado River that we were navigating. Our tour (float) started around 11 am. We were all provided with a packed lunch... More

We enjoy going to the Willow Beach campground and marina. Prices are very reasonable for camping and for the docks at the marina. The campground is very clean and new with full hook-ups. The Marina rental for a slip for our boat was reasonable as well and they are nicely kept. Didn't catch anything but it was a great getaway.

Wasn't sure what to expect here, but this was just an amazing tour! You get a history lesson along the way and the scenery is beautiful. You will not believe how clear the water is below the Dam.
