My husband and I did this tour with another company two years ago, that company recommended Desert Adventures to use since they don't have a kayak tour anymore. We loved this kayak trip so much we wanted to bring our daughter so she could experience the trip. Desert Adventures was awesome. Reed was our guide and he did a magnificent... More

While on our Honeymoon, we did the Kayak Tour, which started at the Hoover Dam. What an amazing adventure and experience. The staff were so friendly and the sights along the Colorado river are beautiful. We had a bit of head wind, which made the paddling a challenge but this did not ruin our experience.

My husband and I arrived in Vegas, played the pokies went shopping and did the normal tourist stuff. My husband and I wanted to do something different to remember Vegas and to see what else Vegas had to offer. We decided to book the two day Ringbolt tour to kayak down the Colorado River , our tour guide was Reggie.... More

When our party of 6, booked the 1/2 day Lake Mead kayak trip, I have to say I was a little reluctant (okay, a lot!) due to me being a newbie to the kayak experience. In meeting our guide, Mac, I was immediately put at ease that I could do this! From the start, he was informative not only about... More

Get away and from the hustle and bustle of the strip! This tour is well worth the money, they are very accommodating. The full day black canyon tour is just spectacular. Regina is an awesome tour guide. The hot springs are gorgeous and relaxing. The views are spectacular. You will have to put forth some effort with paddling and hiking.... More

We took the Black Canyon day trip. The day starts at the foot of the Hoover Dam after descending the steep construction road. The view looking at the dam is even more dramatic than looking down! Our guide, Mac, was friendly, helpful, informative, chatty and fun. I am an experienced kayaker, but shared a double with my wife who is... More

Took my sister and 13-year-old niece on the guided full-day Black Canyon kayaking trip when they came to visit from Connecticut. My sister kayaks in Long Island Sound on a regular basis, but I had never even been in a kayak before. The guided tour turned out to be amazing for both experience levels. There were six of us total... More

My wife and I booked this as part of our recent trip to Las Vegas. Thought it would be something different from the standard Vegas trip. It definitely was! Our guide (Isaac) was friendly, funny, and informative. Starting from the base of the Hoover Dam is an amazing way to begin your day. The paddling is easy, downstream the whole... More

I booked the full-day Black Canyon Kayak trip at the end of last year for my birthday trip to Vegas and it couldn't have been better organised. I had ample contact prior to the trip and they e-mailed and left me a voice message the day before the trip to confirm pick-up time. Daniel was our driver and very knowledgeable... More
