Perfect for Valentine’s Day weekend. Saw less than 10 people the whole time. It was lovely. So nice and convenient to get shuttled down. We took our own kayak so just paid the shuttle fee.

My wife and I visited on 2-29-2020 and had an awesome trip. Our guide, (his name escapes me at this point) was knowledgeable and fun. He was always telling "dad" jokes while keeping us interested in the trip - we were fascinated by the history and information we learned. I have been rafting with Black Canyon River Adventures twice now and both times it has been a 5 star experience. They really do know how to do it right. If you have the least bit of interest in learning about the dam, the river, and the history of the area, you owe it to yourself to check out this trip with this outfitter.

This was the highlight of my trip to Nevada. The guide was personable and knowledgable. The lunch was better than expected. Even got to see some horned sheep!

We were picked up at our hotel and driven to the launch site. We walked a few yards to our awaiting boat. There were about 20 other people on the pontoon and we felt very safe. We started at the foot of the Hoover Dam and journeyed down river. Our guide was very informative and took his time explaining the area. We stopped for a snack which was provided and had some time to go swimming. It was very worth the price and time
