Birthday Adventures Down the Black Canyon

Blazin’ Paddles’ kayak tours take place down the magnificent Black Canyon of the Colorado River and are wilderness adventures that are for just about anybody, including those with no prior paddling experience. Goggling at the famous landmark of Hoover Dam right from its base, watching bighorn sheep dancing over the cliffs and eagles riding the canyon thermals, reveling in a river sunset and full moonrise on one of our Twilight Paddles—these are decidedly not your average birthday presents!

All our itineraries take place in Lake Mead National Recreation Area along the amazing Black Canyon Water Trail, which stretches for 30 glorious miles between Hoover Dam and Eldorado Canyon. The Colorado River’s gorge here embodies the epic and raw scale of the American West’s grandeur, and there’s no better way to see it firsthand than by a quiet and leisurely paddle trip right on the calm waters. Our professional Blazin’ Paddles guides know the ins-and-outs of the river and bring this mighty chasm’s story to life with on-the-go commentary.
