The raft ride starts at the foot of the Hoover Dam. The raft pilot that we had (Leslie) took us through the history of the dam construction project and provide great depth of detail about the section of the Colorado River that we were navigating. Our tour (float) started around 11 am. We were all provided with a packed lunch... More

We enjoy going to the Willow Beach campground and marina. Prices are very reasonable for camping and for the docks at the marina. The campground is very clean and new with full hook-ups. The Marina rental for a slip for our boat was reasonable as well and they are nicely kept. Didn't catch anything but it was a great getaway.

Wasn't sure what to expect here, but this was just an amazing tour! You get a history lesson along the way and the scenery is beautiful. You will not believe how clear the water is below the Dam. It comes with a boxed lunch and plenty of photo ops. I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to relax and enjoy... More

For anyone who has visited Hoover Dam this raft tour is the icing on the cake. The raft tour begins east of Hoover Dam with great views of the dam and the Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. Even on a chilly and rainy day this was an awesome adventure. Our pilot, Jeff's, narration was outstanding. His knowledge of Black Canyon, the... More

We enjoyed the narration of the Black Canyon River. Our group was small so it was very interesting to listen to the history connected to this section of the river. The weather was perfect. A light lunch was provided and with a beach landing we were able to stand on land for a 1/2 hr or so before taking off... More

The location of the start was amazing. We had 30 people on the raft and were told it could take 40, 30 was pushing it. The people on the outside of the raft got to straddle the tubes facing forward. so seeing both sides of the canyon was good ( for them ). My 16 year old son and I... More

Thank you for reviewing our tour. Normally the rafting portion is about 3 hours. And being outdoors for the day in the sunshine, is part of the rafting experience in the Black Canyon National Water Trail. We are glad you enjoyed the information, beach stop and the lunch! More

Awesome relaxing day enjoying a boat trip up and down the river. Only disappointing thing was you can only go up to the bridge and Dan from end of May to early September. Magnificent

Sounds like you enjoyed your boating on the river! But you can take a boat up for the view other times of the year, it just has to be a smaller engine. Just an FYI. : ) More

Great trip that wasn't overcrowded. Ours was the only raft on the Colorado river and we had Hoover Dam to ourselves which was unexpected and wonderful. Very knowledgeable pilot who was great fun and thoughtful. Nice lunch included which you have on a "beach" by the side of the river. Lovely place and although not overly dramatic scenery it was...

Took this trip after our helicopter ride. Under the impression it was white water rafting but turned out to be a gentle ride on a raft down the Colorado River. Only way to see the canyon and lots of interesting facts along the way. We were provided with a boxed lunch and water. It can get very hot and the... More
