This was a BLAST! The scenery was incredible - the trip begins at the base of Hoover Dam. It is an amazing way to see the dam, from such a different perspective. Don't be afraid if you want to bring your children or are scared of rafting - the water is VERY calm. You will, however, get wet! There aren't any rapids, but the guide will drive into the wakes of other boats so that you get a chance to cool down from the sweltering heat in the canyon (it was 115 degrees outside when we were there). The water is cold! Don't bring anything that you don't want to get soaked (especially if you are sitting on the outside pontoons). The trip took nearly a full day - starting from the casino around 9:30 and ending around 3:30. The total rafting time was about 3 1/2 hours. You are served a box lunch halfway through. Our guide, Brian, was great - he grew up in the area and was full of a lot of interesting history about the construction of Hoover Dam and the surrounding areas.
