Our guide was Antonio, he was super knowledgeable and made us feel right at home on the water. You launch from the bottom of the Hoover Dam, be prepared to hustle here, you only have 15 minutes to get in the water. We paddled a ways and hiked to some amazing hot springs. Lot's of sight seeing and whatever pace you want to take. Then we had lunch on "lizard island" under some trees where the local wildlife is just hanging out, it's really amazing to see. We finished the trip to the beach, 12 miles of gorgeous scenery and smooth water. Would recommend anyone to do this.
