1) We initially reserved a canoe for my husband and I, and two kayaks for our grown sons. We checked in at the Desert Adventures office in Boulder City the day before and they advised us to switch to two double kayaks because of the head wind predicted for the next day. They didn't charge us for the change. Turned... More

My wife and I were visiting Las Vegas for the first time and we had a few extra days on the itinerary, so we decided to see the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. Wanting to do something different, we decided to look into kayak adventures up the Colorado river, launching at Black Canyon (base of Hoover Dam) - figured... More

If you are wanting to get away from the Vegas craziness for a day this us a great tour for you. Although it is a VERY long day. We were picked up at our hotel at 6 am and did not get dropped off back at hotel until 6:30 pm. This was really my only complaint. The guides were all... More

Booked a 1/2 day Lake Mead tour as we are new to kayaking and recovering from an illness. I contacted Desert Adventures before the trip, explained our situation and asked what they would recommend. We ended up booking the day before we wanted to go which was bad planning on our part, yet they were able to get us a... More

We were picked up at our hotel by our guide, Scott. During our drive to the tour shop he gave us information about the areas we were passing as well as what to expect on the mountain biking trip. After picking up and being fitted to the bikes we were off. Mostly down hill and fairly easy. Scott took us... More

We went kayaking for the first time in our lives. Black Canyon was beautiful. The Colorado River was bathtub-calm, emerald-green, and clear. Our guide (Reed) was knowledgeable, responsible, and fun. The pickup and drop off at our hotel made this very convenient. We would do this again on our next visit to Las Vegas.

Did the Hoover dam to Willow Beach kayak and hike. It was fantastic. Guides Moshe and Reed were great. Energetic, thoughtful, had everyone's safety and fun in mind. Took great care of us. Wife and I felt we were in really good hands. Working with them was extremely easy (purchase, planning, arrival, trip, finishing). Everything was pretty much on time... More

This review is being posted belatedly. We did the trip in mid August. It was a great trip; one of the highlights we missed, though, was the Arizona Hot Springs--we were told it had been washed out When I was about to post, I noticed that the previous reviewer mentioned climbing the 20 foot ladder to the Arizona Hot Springs,...
