Colorado River kayaking

Kayaking tours are gaining in popularity as more people discover that even beginners can enjoy the beauty of natural landscapes as they float along the water with a guide. When planning a kayaking adventure, one of the first things you will need to decide is whether you prefer to paddle along a river or in the sea. While each has their advantages, Colorado River kayaking provides these benefits that make this type of adventure stand out from the rest.

Indulge Your Senses with Scenic Views

There’s no denying that ocean scenes are beautiful. However, they tend to be fairly standard. Kayaking along the beautiful Black Canyon gives you an opportunity to see the Hoover Dam, enjoy cliff views and even spot native wildlife such as bighorn sheep, bald eagles and the ever-elusive puma. As you breathe in the fresh desert air, you can snap gorgeous photos of the colorful sunrise while feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin. From the cool river waters to the 100-degree hot springs, each part of your ride along the river will tantalize your senses and create beautiful memories.

Relax and Enjoy Your River Excursion

Different bodies of water have unique qualities that affect your enjoyment of the trip. While oceans require a heavy amount of forceful paddling to combat the effects of the waves, Colorado River kayaking allows you to take advantage of the current flowing in one main direction. Although, you should be capable of doing some degree of paddling, you will be able to focus on the fun rather than being worn out by the end of your journey.

Truly Immerse Yourself in the Adventure

River kayaking is all about getting attuned with nature. During your tour, you will enjoy special chances to dip your toes into the hot springs of Nevada and even enjoy the desert sunset on a twilight tour. Marshmallow roasts under the stars and breathtaking cliff views are all just part of traveling along the Colorado River where you will experience first-hand the true beauty of life outside the urban city of Las Vegas.
