Didnt expect to kayak for 5 miles but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be (coming from someone who’s not into outdoor nature adventures). The actual cave was a let down because it didn’t look like the pictures online. It was legit a shadowed hole in a wall. The views while on the river were great. Cave itself meh

Had a great time on the river. We don’t kayak much but it was very smooth and easy. The trip was worth it to get out of the crazy busy Vegas strip! We had Clayton as our tour guide and he was awesome. He took great photos of our group and the shuttle that picked us up was a plus! Thanks for a good time

Colorado river kayaking
Richard_P
, Oct 2021
Guides were great, both Daniela and Clayton…. Lots of little interesting history tidbits about the area & plants. The grotto was a little disappointing, but from reading beforehand regarding what to expect it was still less than what I was expecting !!! basically just a niche in the wall you back your kayak into, but overall the whole experience just kayaking on the Colorado was great, A granola bar and water for a snack was a little disappointing though, Also a stop on the way up at a beach would’ve been nice for us to stretch our legs for us cityfolk not used to kayaking. It was a beautiful cool and breezy day on the river.

Beautiful, peaceful day kayaking on the Colorado River. Eddie our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and patient. He checked on us often, took pictures and provided good information. It was our first time in Vegas and this was the highlight of our trip.
