“Escape to the River!”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

After several days on the Las Vegas strip, we escaped the bright lights for the quiet serenity of the Colorado River. Our tour guide from Evolution Expeditions was, from the first instruction to the last goodbye, first class. Everything was well executed and professional. We highly recommend checking them out of you are looking for some adventure off the Strip!

“This was the highlight of our vacation!”
Reviewed 13 December 2011

We were nervous to take a kayak trip in December but it was amazing. Going in the hot springs was one of the best parts and the canyons were beautiful. It was so much fun! We will recommend it to anyone who is going to Las Vegas.

The winter time is a great time to kayak below the Hoover Dam, with all the natural hot springs to soak in, it's a lot warmer than you think. Thanks again!

“Wonderful day for complete newbie”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

Awesome day trip away from the strip. Experience the beautiful Colorado river without being surrounded by tourists. Our 12 mile paddle trip included a visit to a hot steam cave, two hot spring pools and a short hike to a bluff overlooking the river. Water and snacks were available and our group stopped for a nice packed lunch. I brought a cheap waterproof digital camera which worked great for this trip.

I have never been in a Kayak in my life. And yes - I fell in the water trying to get in the first time. (-: The staff were extremely helpful and I was able to get things figured out very quickly. The Kayaks have a rudder you can control to keep yourself going straight. The water was very calm and slow moving so be prepared to paddle the entire trip.

Thanks again for a wonderful trip!

“Great Day on the Colorado”
Reviewed 23 November 2011

This was a terrific experience, a wonderful way to get away from the Strip. Putting in at the Hoover Dam affords views of the Dam and the new bridge from a unique vantage point. The natural sauna and the hot springs were amazing and just shear pleasure to soak in. The scenery is amazing. Mike the guide was very knowledgable and personable, the equipment was solid, lunch tasty, water and snacks all taken care of. Overall, can not recommend this trip highly enough. One word of caution - you need to be in at least decent physical condition to take this trip - paddling the 11.5 miles depending on the conditions can be a pretty good workout, and there's a little bit of scrambling over rocks, etc. to get to the hot springs.

Had an absolutely perfect day on the water with good people, excellent weather, incredible scenery, and the best way to see it! It was much more than I thought it would be with the stops we made along the way.
