Paddle through primitive volcanic canyon walls towering over 900’.

Explore giant volcanic boulders at the opening of Black Canyon where many paddlers contemplate a descent into the crystal clear, emerald waters of the Colorado River. Take a break from kayaking and explore the area while hiking up a hill to a historical site that will give you breathtaking views of the entire canyon. Enjoy a catered lunch on a remote beach, while watching the wildlife drama unfold on both Nevada and Arizona shorelines. Be prepared to see desert bighorn sheep, osprey, falcons, bald eagles, and great blue heron in their natural setting! 

Black Canyon is a short distance from the LV Strip, located in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The tour begins in the morning when you arrive at Willow Beach, Arizona.
This tour is for beginners to advanced paddlers alike.
