DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS COMPANY! The owner Danny is rude and unprofessional. I paid for 4 kayak rentals with a guided tour and we show up with no guide. I sent Danny the owner numerous emails over two months. He claimed he would be sending a refund but never did. After 2 months I finally leave a review of my experience just to get a rude reply as well as incredibly inappropriate emails.

Very disappointed. I took my last vacation day for the year and came to Vegas a day early just to do the Emerald kayak trip. I got an email 24 hours before reminding me about the trip. Since I had never been given a pick up time I called and they said “we’ll call you back shortly with your time.” I emailed at 7pm and said I still haven’t heard about tomorrow yet. At 9:12pm I got a text “sorry event is cancelled for tomorrow morning.” Had I had as little as 24 hours notice I could’ve changed my plans but it was too late.

Really cool trip. I completely enjoyed the entire experience. Very pleasant people who were very informative throughout the entire trip. The water was beautiful and clear. The kayaks were a trip! Loved the entire thing. Definitely something to check out while in the area!

We booked an Emerald tour w/ another couple. Paid a little over $400 for the guided tour. They came w/ our tandem kayak and no tour guide or lunch. The driver was nice and told us Danny would refund us to get in touch w/ him. I emailed Danny and his response to me emailing about getting a credit were "Consider it done. We apologize for the issues and are happy to adjust your rate. Should you return, please contact us for a 20% off discount on any guided tour. Danny Latham VGK CEO". After not receiving a credit I disputited my charge. This is a $300 difference from the "shamrock" tour we ended up receiving. Rent a regular kayak elsewhere. You also don't need the guided tour.

We absolutely enjoyed our day kayaking to Emerald Cove. Jared was a great guide and shared interesting information along the way. We enjoyed pulling to the beach areas to stretch out a few times along the way. The Kaykas are easy to maneuver and pretty comfortable for our older bodies. The lunch provided was great too. We would do it again in a heartbeat!
