Enjoy the Best Hoover Dam Views and More with Black Canyon Raft Tours

Embark on this unique river rafting journey that heads out from the Lake Mead RV Village to see the best of the Black Canyon—including the impressive Hoover Dam. Our Black Canyon Raft Tour takes passengers on a three-hour trek down the Colorado River aboard a professionally guided motor-assisted inflatable raft.

Passengers can simply relax and soak in sights seen by a fortunate few as an experienced and educated guide offers details of the local lore, flora and fauna, and great geologic history of the area. Known as the Black Canyon National Water Trail, you’ll be thrilled by the rugged landscapes that offer opportunities to view Bighorn Sheep and waterfowl like Great Blue Heron.

Along the way, we will take a short stop at a sandy beach just below Hoover Dam, giving everyone time to eat lunch, take a swim in the pristine waters and take photos of the dam. This journey will conclude along the Arizona side of the river at the lovely Willow Beach Marina on Lake Mohave. There will be time for guests to do a bit of souvenir shopping before our tour buses depart to return guests to their accommodations if they chose a transportation-included tour.
