About the Experience

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

Tour includes all equipment (high performance boat w/ rudder, 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.
