“Professional outfit”

I am especially grateful when I come across service providers who are professional and customer friendly. Not only is the Black Canyon River Adventure a great experience, memorable and educational for young and old alike, but the company is very professional and customer friendly to work with. Kudos to them, and book without hesitation!

“A fantastic way to see the Hoover Dam and the surrounding countryside all in one go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2010

On holiday with family ranging from 14yrs old to 65yrs old this trip was enjoyed by everyone! Starting from the base of the Hoover Dam and driving over the top on the way back means you have two trips in one. One tip would be not to sit too near the front of the raft as you do get soaked! All in all this was a wonderful day out. The scenery is fantastic. The guide was really friendly and informative.

“A relaxing day in nature, such a contrast to Las Vegas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2010

This is a full-day break from the madness of Las Vegas that requires absolutely no physical exertion on your part. You get to see a perspective of the Hoover Dam and Black canyon that few others get to see. The canyon is really spectacular and makes not just a relaxing, but interesting day trip too. Our guide, Brian, was amusing, interesting and knowledgeable. The boat was big enough for everyone to space out and relax and we made several stops on sandy beaches to paddle in the chilly river or just sit in the shade and eat the tasty lunch that they provide. We even got to see a bald eagle in the canyon!

“Black Canyon River Adventure - a day float trip to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2009

If you are looking for a day float trip down the Colorado River while in Las Vegas - here is the trip for you. It takes about 8 hours total from pick up to drop off. This trip is great for folks of all ages from little ones to the seniors. The scenery is awesome with lots of interesting features including wildlife i,e, mountain goats! Lots to learn and beauty to see! Dont miss it! If you are lucky enough to get Brian as your guide - pat yourself on the back - its your lucky day! Teresa from Missouri
