"Kayaking Near Las Vegas" Extreme Sports Tip by Alfine5
Extreme Sports, Las Vegas: 20 reviews and 20 photos
One of the best things I did near Las Vegas was kayaking at Black Canyon. We did this excursion with the guys at Kayak Lake Mead.
Our take off point was Willow Beach which is a bit further down from Hoover Dam. When we arrived our tour guide had our kayaks ready to go. We were given good instructions and were given some practice before we headed towards our destination of Emerald Cove. The kayak towards Emerald Cove wasn't too bad since the wind was at our back and there wasn't much boat traffic on the river. We were allowed to go at our own pace and the tour guide pointed out some interesting information about our surroundings. The views were amazing and we had a chance to explore all the nooks and crannies of the canyon.
This was definitely a great trip and a good workout which we felt the next day. I am looking forward to doing another trip with Kayak Lake Mead the next time I am near Las Vegas.
Equipment: Kayaks and safety gear is provided. It may be a good idea to bring some food for when you stop at the cove.
Address: Willow Beach, Arizona
Directions: See the map on Kayak Lake Mead's website.
