Worth It
, May 2021
Tour guide was very helpful and polite. Kayaking the river with it's clear water and high cliffs was the highlight of the trip. The "cave" was not much to see by itself. The cave is about the size of 2 stall garage.

Our tour guide Eddie was amazing. He was always aware of where his group was and very knowledgeable about the history!
Great trip

Trip was fun, scenery was beautiful and the cave was awesome. Excellent guide- Ed. Very professional.
Amazing experience!

We were a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids (9, 11, 13)) this was an amazing excursion! The views were breathtaking and the experience is once we will never forget. *Couple things to note: if you’ve never kayaked before, ask questions before your group leaves the shore. Our guide Edgar was extremely helpful and provided great tips before and getting the excision. This can be physically challenging if you’ve never kayaked before (it’s a couple hours long) or if you encounter winds! Sunblock Sunblock & Sunblock some more! Be appreciative! These guides not only pick you up in Vegas, they’re also your guides, they set up your equipment and kayaks, load them back up after the tour and then drive you back (1 hour each way)! They really work hard to make your tour enjoyable! We will definitely do this again! 💙

Great Paddle For All Levels
, May 2021
Very enjoyable kayaking tour of Black Canyon & Emerald Cave. It was a nice, easy and relaxing paddle both up and down the river. It’s all flat water - no rapids. On the way to the cave, there’s a short stop at a small beach for a quick dip in the water if you dare (it’s 55 degrees) and a 10 minute informational hike up to a beautiful lookout. The cave’s clear emerald green water was neat. It’s smaller than I was expecting and everyone has to paddle in backwards to fit. On the way back we saw some Big Horn Sheep. The tour company was wonderful. We booked through Viator and had no issues. They were highly communicative from the start. Within 24 hours I received a text from Las Vegas SUP & Kayak Club and could reach them anytime by text or phone. Detailed instructions were sent 24 hours out. We met the group at the launch site with no issues. Easy drive and GPS took us right to the parking lot. Our guide, Mark, was really great. There were tons of tour groups out on the water, and he did a good job of pacing us out so it felt intimate. Our group had about 12 people, and we were all allowed to paddle at our own pace. We never felt rushed. Mark checked in with everyone regularly and was quick to answer questions or give tips. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, wildlife, and geology. He also volunteered to take individual photos for everyone at two different times. My husband and I have great pictures of us on top of the lookout and on the water. Overall I highly recommend this tour for all levels.
Loved it and will do aagin.

What a wonderful day. The entire experience was great. From pick-up to drop off the day couldn't have been better. It was beautiful weather, a great group, and a wonderful guide. My husband and I will do it again. Thank you. (The park was a wonderful highlight, goats hanging out and chillin'.
MY Tour Guide

Our tour Guide was amazing and knowledgeable! I was there May 1st with an older tour guide and he was awesome! First tour i’ve scheduled and it was beyond my expectations. None of us had experience and we all did great and i thank the tour guide for having such a good trip. Even though the other group was 30 minutes late upon arrival he stayed positive and was understanding, even though i may not have been happy about it, he made us have a good time regardless!
