Part of Lake Mead National Recreation Area, the 30-mile stretch of the Colorado River known as the Black Canyon Water Trail is one of the area’s best spots for river rafting. The river here is classified as “moving flatwater,” which makes for a gentle, easy ride that’s ideal for sightseers and first-time rafters.

At Black Canyon River Adventures, we provide everything you need to get started on our 3-hour guided rafting tour of the canyon waterways, from the raft and safety equipment to a box lunch. Whether you’re a seasoned rafting pro or headed on your first river trip with us, here are the basics you’ll need to have a safe and comfortable ride down the Colorado from Hoover Dam to Willow Beach.


Rafting the Colorado is a unique way to see the sights of Black Canyon, from the impressive Hoover Dam spillways to steamy hot springs, caves and cliffs of volcanic rock. Contact us today to get started on your next Colorado River vacation, and then get your rafting kit ready for the ride.
