We signed up for a two day trip in Blackwater canyon. There were 5 friends in our group. We found the canyon to be beautiful, the kayaking relatively easy, and the hot springs wonderful. The fellows who picked us up in Las Vegas were prompt and shared much information about the surrounding area. Our only disappointment was our guide on... More

Took 7 friends on this day kayak trip through the Black Canyon to celebrate my 50th! Was one of the most amazing things I've ever done. The scenery was breathtaking and the hiking, soaking in the hot springs and waterfalls were out of this world. Our guide, Regina (Reg), was knowledgeable and encouraging. While the kayaking isn't for the beginner... More

The day started w/ us getting picked up at 6:30 , a short drive to the shop where we met our guide Jerol. Apologies for the spelling. We then hopped over to a meeting spot where we picked up a few other passengers from another group. On the way to the lot Jerol entertained us w/ some stories and told... More

My wife and I took the Black Canyon/Colorado kayak tour on 7th October. We had telephoned to reconfirm our booking the day before and sure enough the following day we were picked up on time. After checking in and given a safety briefing we travelled to the base of the Hoover Dam to unload our kayaks with our guide Jake... More

We had a family group of 6 including my 83 year old mom and we had a great time. Our guide-Reed and Gary were simply the best. The Colorado River and Black Canyon were beautiful. A big horn sheep ran through our camp-twice-much to our delight. The food was great-the hot springs wonderful-the company entertaining. We took the 2 day... More

We went on a canoe trip, and had the time of our lives. This is a company of excellence. The experience was beyond my expectations. I was a beginner paddler, that received the perfect amount of attention for comfort and safety. All the equipment was top notch along with our guides. I highly recommend Desert Adventures for any expedition.

A really good trip with an excellent guide in Dan who kept us informed on the history of the dam, caves, hot springs all the way down. As our camera battery went dead Dan took some pictures with his own and emailed them to me before I had got back to the hotel. Great stuff. Pick up was on time,... More
