UPDATE: Due to concerns that arose during the coronavirus pandemic, Black Canyon River Adventures has suspended all rafting tours until spring of 2022.

Black Canyon River Adventures offers Hoover Dam rafting adventures on the outskirts of Boulder City in Lake Mead National Recreation Area

Travel down Lower Portal Road, the original road used by the construction workers to access the construction site, and board rafts near the base of Hoover Dam, where you’ll find unbeatable views of the engineering marvel and the towering Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, which connects Arizona and Nevada 900 feet above the legendary Colorado River.                                                    

Three hours are spent exploring 12-miles of history, beauty and wonder as you glide through the Black Canyon Water Trail, with walls that in some places tower 2,000 feet above the river’s edge.  Experience the waterfalls, hot springs and other geological wonders, as well as wildlife like desert bighorn sheep, osprey, great blue heron, and more. This trip is fully narrated by experienced, knowledgeable guides who offer incredible knowledge of the history of Hoover Dam and the Black Canyon National Water trail.  

Lunch is included in a take-home, insulated souvenir bag.  A refreshing stop along the way at a side beach will give you the opportunity to stretch your legs and to swim or play in the cool clear water of the Colorado River. 

Your tour will end at the Willow Beach Marina in the scenic Mohave desert of Arizona, where you will board your shuttle back to where you started from.
