Las Vegas kayaking is a welcome water adventure for visitors who would like to get away from the Strip & take a break from Sin City’s endless entertainment.

Contrary to popular belief, there are many places away from the hotel’s pools, where you can enjoy a swim and a host of other water activities.

Las Vegas Kayaking, Tours, Trips, Rental, Black Canyon & Emerald Cave

Just about an hour’s drive from Las Vegas Strip lies the Black Canyon Water Trail. This kayaking paradise is a 12-mile stretch within the Colorado River that starts just below the Hoover Dam, and winds down filled with narrow slot canyons, amazing hot springs, and panoramic desert landscapes.

Plan a kayaking trip at the Black Canyon by using any of the tour operators who facilitate these trips, with Desert Adventures being one such company. Whether you are planning for an exciting day trip with the family, or are looking forward to an overnight trip with a few friends, you can be sure to enjoy a reasonably-priced package. There is also the option of taking a guided trip or simply hiring a kayak and heading out to the unknown.

A guided kayak tour includes the services of a tour guide who will explain the region’s terrains and ensure you visit some of the most amazing canyon sites. On the other hand, a self-guided tour is all about pushing the limits and trusting your abilities. This is relatively easy because the Black Canyon section is relatively flat and has no rapids.

Some of the highlights at the Black Canyon include the Sauna Cave, the Nevada and Arizona Hot Springs, as well as the Emerald Cave.

Recommended essentials for a kayaking trip include the following: quick-dry shorts or pants, swimsuit (preferably worn under clothing), a towel, hat, and sunglasses for sun protection. Remember to include some water and snacks, especially if you are kayaking with the little ones. Lastly, pack electronics and gadgets in a waterproof bag.

For those who have never experienced kayaking before, it is advisable to take an introductory class to familiarize oneself with the basic skills for a safe and fun adventure.
