Why paddle just one day in Black Canyon, when you could stay overnight, and sleep out under the stars?

Kayak two full days on our most popular Colorado River adventure! This river trip is the best outdoor value in Las Vegas. You need only show up with a smile and ready to have some fun! Once you are on the water, the adventure begins!

The lower Colorado river is moving flat-water, not whitewater, and it is perfect for beginners or seasoned paddlers alike. Day trips in Black Canyon sometimes leave folks wishing for more time to explore. On our 2-day tour of Black Canyon, you will have plenty of time to roam free. You'll hike and scramble over large boulders, making your way through narrow slot canyons to hidden geothermal pools.

Spend hours relaxing and soaking in the natural hot tubs. Paddle into rain caves, and take time to study ancient rock art left by the Mohave tribes who inhabited the area. Many sorts of wildlife live in the area. You may see Desert Big Horn sheep, bald eagles, coyotes, red-tail hawks, and turkey vultures. Anglers can bring a rod & reel, and try their hand at some world-class striped bass fishing.

Fresh meals will be enjoyed around the campfire, and evenings are free to relax, read, hike, or explore on your own. Enjoy the sounds of the river as it lulls you to sleep, embers popping from the campfire.

It doesn't get much better than this. Spend a night in Black Canyon, and discover the magic for yourself.
