What you can expect
Leave Las Vegas behind and take a guided Colorado River rafting trip from the outskirts of Boulder City, home of the Hoover Dam. Your raft adventure starts at the monumental Hoover Dam with views of the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge and continues with a trip down the Black Canyon National Water Trail where you’re surrounded by majestic sandstone rock formations throughout your journey.
Get an active start to your day with this morning rafting excursion that begins at the base of the Hoover Dam. Board the raft, push off from the shore, and behold this colossal structure as your guide shares the story of this massive concrete edifice. Then, head downriver through the relatively calm waters of the Lower Colorado River. Along the way, behold magnificent waterfalls, bubbling hot springs, and other geological wonders. Keep a lookout for roaming big horn sheep, soaring osprey, water-loving great blue heron, and other wildlife.
Take a break from paddling with a riverside lunch stop, which provides an opportunity to refuel and swim in the cool, crystal-clear water. Once you’ve had your fill, venture back onto the Colorado River and ask your guide any questions you may about the colorful rock strata or the rich culture and history of the Native Americans who live in the area. Your Colorado River rafting tour ends at Willow Beach where you will board your shuttle back to Las Vegas with plenty of time to go wild back in civilization.
