Terrific guides Celeste and Rod introduced us first-time kayakers to beautiful Black Canyon on the CO river for an approximate 4 hour trip. From start to finish, Evolution Expedition representatives were professional, thorough, fun and informative. They make it easy for visitors with pick-up and drop-off at your resort. They clearly list all the things you'll need to bring to... More

We did the 12 miles kayaking tour starting from the hoover Dam. They picked us up at 5:45 in front of our hotel room (signature mgm grand) and dropped us back which was very convenient.

We booked the Hoover dam kayak trip. It took about an hour to drive out from the strip on the provided transport and 6-7 hours to get down river in a pretty steady but relaxed pace in the kayaks. The drive back was a bit longer but I slept most of the way. Our group was pretty small at 8ppl... More
