Join Blazin’ Paddles on a 4 mile round-trip tour of the beautiful Black Canyon.
You will meet your guide at Willow Beach where they will get you prepared for the day ahead and fitted into your kayaks! When paddling upstream into Black Canyon scour the banks to be the first to spot Desert Big Horn Sheep, or look above and see if you there are any Bald Eagles. Your first stop will be one mile up stream at a historical overlook, that will give you awe-inspiring views of the legendary Colorado River. Your guide will explain the immense history of what the river was used for close to 100 years ago!
Enjoy a complimentary snack before setting off for Emerald Cave.
This trip offers the most launch times for any of our tours. Certain launch times are only offered during specific times of the year. Our 9am tour is great for beating the heat and avoiding the large afternoon crowds, however the sun light in Emerald cave is not what you see in pictures at that time. We spend the same amount of time in Emerald Cave as all the outfitters, however it is just a small part of an amazing tour.
