We had a fantastic trip on the Black Canyon. Our tour guide was Mack (Makeena) and she was very easy going, great for first timers, fun and was very knowledgeable! Would highly recommend for beginners or experienced folks. We did the half day in the tandem kayak. Loved it! Lots of places for pictures.

Excellent experience! Tour guide Celeste was fantastic - great guidance, fantastic information on the drive and in the water, and she put us at ease and made the tour so enjoyable. I'm a novice paddler, and I booked a tour by myself, and she made sure I felt comfortable and included among the other paddlers. All around unforgettable, enjoyable experience.

Family of 5, 3 kiddos ranging 11 to 19. This was a great 1/2 day kayaking trip. My 2 girls were in a tandem and 3 of us used single kayaks. Both Celeste and Jamaika were excellent guides, providing great information and not "herding us" while providing great tips and tricks for essentially beginner kayakers. The river is beautiful, the speed of travel was perfect, and the length just right. For mid-October 2021, the weather was excellent in the 70's. Not disappointed and highly recommend whether as a single, couples, or a family (our group ranged the whole gamut).

We took the 1/2 day kayak tour to black canyon. We were picked up from our hotel on the strip. Mike was our guide. He was fun and knowledgeable and the kayak trip was a blast. Well worth the money.
