Join us on a relaxing trip where we will set camp in Lake Mead National Recreation Area near a dynamic body of water. We will visit the Hoover Dam and learn about the importance of water conservation, land management, and the history of the mighty Colorado River. We will then float for 8 hours down the famous Black Canyon to get a closer look at the river between towering cliff walls. Learn proper paddling technique from our experienced guides in 2-person canoe and kayaks, see remote hot springs seeping from canyon walls, and learn the basics of front country camping.
