About the Experience

This trip is a beautiful, peaceful kayaking experience on Lake Mead.

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.

Tour includes all equipment (tandem canoe, paddle, life vest), plus a dry bag for your gear.

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 the scenery.
