Approximately 3 hours of paddling on Lake Mead, to several islands.
About the Experience
The perfect canoe trip for all skill levels, (including those with no experience), this beautiful journey is a must!
Cruise out to the Boulder Islands for a leisurely hike, look for seashells on the beaches, or enjoy a refreshing swim in crystal clear waters. Enjoy a picnic style lunch to top off a great day of canoeing on Lake Mead.
Meet us at the lake in your own vehicle. Be sure to wear a bathing suit in summer months; the water temperatures are perfect for swimming. A professional guide will be at your side all day to offer instruction, stories, local history, and the information about construction of the Hoover Dam. So sit back, relax, and enjoy your canoeing adventure on Lake Mead.
