See Hoover Dam up close from your own high performance kayak, paddling through Black Canyon on the Colorado River. Black Canyon's current is moving flat-water, suitable for beginners as well as seasoned paddlers. Your guide will show you hidden places such as Gold Strike Canyon, Lone Palm Canyon, Arizona Hot Springs, Monkey Hole, and many other treats.

Relax and soak in the natural hot tubs, paddle into rain caves and take time to study ancient rock art left by the Mohave tribes who inhabited the area. Keep an eye on the lookout for Desert Big Horn sheep, bald eagles, coyotes and turkey vultures. If you like to fish, bring a rod & reel and try your hand at some world-class striped bass fishing.

All camping equipment is provided. Fresh meals will be enjoyed around the campfire, and evenings are free to relax, read, hike, or explore on your own. Enjoy the sounds of the river as it lulls you to sleep, embers popping from the campfire.

At Eldorado Canyon on Day 4, ride an ATV off road, up and around trails into the open sky. Or, you can hop in the saddle and go horseback riding on dusty trails that lead to fabulous views of the Colorado River. You'll also explore the inner workings of the most famous gold mine in Southern Nevada. Visit 3 different shafts, which descend over 900 feet.

Day 1

Hotel pickups begin bright and early. After introductions at the tour office in Boulder City, you will pack your gear and head to the security checkpoint for the launch at the Hoover Dam. The 1100-foot descent down the portal road is an adventure in itself. Explore Sauna Cave, Gold Strike, and Boyscout Canyon, where numerous hot springs are hidden. Hike narrow slot canyons in search of the perfect hot spring. Enjoy yourself, knowing your campsite is just around the corner. A short paddle brings you to the campsite. Accomodations for the evening include a starry night sky and the smell of a campfire. Enjoy a hearty dinner and good conversation as the sounds of the river churn in the background. Take a long soak in a quiet hot spring before crawling into your warm sleeping bag to drift away.

Day 2

Wake up to the scent of hot coffee and the sounds of birds chirping. Take a morning hike to view some ancient petroglyphs, or choose to relax in the hot springs. A full day of kayaking takes the group past Weeping Springs Cove, a gravity fault, and the "Great Unconformity." Watch for Bighorn sheep perched high on the cliffs. Peregrine falcons, eagles, coyotes, foxes, and lizards also inhabit the canyon. As you approach the historic cableways and catwalk, you will learn about the gauging station and the purpose it served. Kayak into Emerald Cave for a fantastic photo of the shimmering green waters. Explore the historic gauger's homesite, where you can hike to the ruins. Make your camp near the Chalk Cliffs and take some time explore Monkey Hole before calling it a night.

Day 3

A light day of kayaking reveals a tiny break in the canyon wall, which you will explore briefly. The green waters of the Colorado are great for swimming; and - if you are an angler - you may want an AC plug to fish for Striped Bass. If you're feeling adventurous, hike to Queho's Cave where a renegade Indian who killed more than 20 people lived. The river widens as you reach the headwaters of Lake Mohave where steamboats operates for 40 years. Upon arrival at Nelson's Landing, a shuttle will transport you to Eldorado Canyon; your campsite for the evening. A BBQ dinner awaits at the old western town pavilion. Here you will have a chance to wash up and relax by the campfire. The secluded canyon is the perfect finish to a beautiful day.

Day 4

A hearty breakfast starts the day off right. Pack up camp and prepare for an adventurous ride of your choosing (ATV or Horseback). ATV trails are abundant in the area, and the action is exciting and scenic. If you prefer horseback, the stables are just a short distance from camp and cowboy wranglers are waiting to show you fabulous views. Following your ATV or horseback ride, you'll explore the Techatticup Gold Mine, the oldest and most famous gold mine in Southern Nevada. Ore was brought from the mine to the stamp mill, crushed to a powder and mixed in cyanide tanks where the gold & silver would seperate. Complete your amazing adventure with a few photos of the group at the old barn, before being transported back to Las Vegas.

Choice of ATV or horseback ride on the final day. Guide gratuity is not included.

Is there a minimum age requirement? -- Kayakers on the Eldorado Gold tour must be at least 12 years old and paddle in a tandem kayak with an adult, or 14 years or older if they wish to paddle their own kayak. Your guide may rearrange people throughout the day to balance the ability of the group. ATV Riders must be 16 or older to operate ATV and helmets are required (and provided) for participants under 18 years old. With these things in mind, the minimum age for this tour is 12.

What kind of experience do your guides have? -- Your guides have years of experience in the outdoors; both personally and professionally. They possess a vast knowledge of the areas visited - the trails, the wildlife, the plants, and weather patterns. Before they can become lead guides, they must undergo strict training programs which prepare them to manage groups, make good decisions, and handle emergencies. CPR and First Aid training, as well as Wilderness First Aid or First Responder is standard, and they carry satellite radios and/or cell phones at all times.

Do you supply alcohol? May we bring our own? -- Alcohol is not permitted during activities such as hiking or paddling. Safety is our main concern. Your guides have a spotless record, and they want to keep it that way. You may bring a bottle of wine (or whatever you prefer) for dinner at the campsite in the evening.

When should I make a reservation? -- Space is limited, so you should make your reservations as early as possible.

Are there minimum participant requirements? -- Yes. In order to keep prices affordable, these trips require a minimum of four (4) participants in order to run as scheduled. In the event we are 1 or 2 people short, your guides may offer the option of still running the trip, for a small additional fee. They may also offer options of rescheduling or moving you to another tour. If none of the options work with your schedule, you will be refunded in full.

Should I buy travel insurance? -- If you are concerned about the possibility of having to cancel, it us strongly suggested you purchase trip cancellation insurance to protect your vacation investment. You will have the option during the ordering process to purchase travel insurance. Our cancellation policy applies in every instance, with no exceptions for any reason.
