Explore both sides of the Nevada-Arizona border while touring with Evolution Expeditions! The Kayak Hoover Dam Express tour enables access to the same great geothermal experiences as on the Hoover Dam tour while paddling a four-mile stretch of the Colorado River and hiking three miles through a scenic slot canyon.

Be prepared to spot desert bighorn sheep, coyotes, falcons, bald eagles, and different types of migratory waterfowl while paddling.

Upon coming ashore at White Rock Canyon, enjoy a complimentary healthy lunch! Then, let out on a three-mile journey upward through an inspiring volcanic slot canyon where the express shuttle back to Las Vegas awaits.

The Express tour was designed for active participants who do not have the entire day to spend on the river or have busy convention schedules that require an early return to the Las Vegas Strip. This tour is for advanced paddlers and hikers.

Access to the Hoover Dam launch location is limited. Participant permits are secured on a first-come, first-served basis. Forty-five permits are issued each day by the National Park Service and sell out in advance. Advance booking is highly recommended. PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING PHOTOGRAPHIC IDENTIFICATION, as security personal managing the Hoover Dam launch site can deny access if identification is not available.
