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. We dressed in layers and took the canoe down and up the river. The first day we went down to the Boyscout Canyon and worked our way... More

Did the Hoover Dam canoe experience and the pick up folks were very friendly and helpful. Took their time to point out little things that would have otherwise been passed over without a second look. They were funny and efficient and got everyone out and back in in great time. Prices are reasonable and include everything to be legimately out... More

Reed was our tour guide from Boulder City to the Hoover dam. From beginning to end this trip could not have been more fun. Reed was so pleasant and so detailed in the instructions he gave for using the bikes, he gave everyone time to get comfy on the bike before taking off. He was so knowledgable about every thing....

My family and I kayaked with Desert Adventures July 2016. It was a highlight of our trip. The guys from Desert Adventures were fantastic. Desert Adventures provides all necessary gear/food except a hat, sunscreen, and water shoes with a heal strap. (They provide water bottles and filtration.) It is incredible to see Hoover Dam from the bottom of the river... More

My husband and I rented two single kayaks for a self-guided black canyon day trip. They handled our permits/paperwork and loading and unloading of the kayaks. Everyone we encountered was super helpful and friendly. They provided us with all the gear and river maps. It was very windy when we went making it a tough 11 mile paddle. The trails... More

Last weekend we went on a paddle down the Black Canyon with 20 people. Desert Adventures always responded promptly to questions in the process of securing the rental and made the steps abundantly clear in how to acquire the permits to launch at the Hoover dam. All in all a wonderful experience with a great team of professional and fun... More
