Black Canyon Hoover Dam Rafting Tour from Las Vegas

Why We Love This Tour

To see the giant Hoover Dam from above is one thing, but to actually float along the Colorado River below was a whole different world. You feel so remote, so small, yet you know that hundreds of people are driving past in their cars above, or walking along the bridge, looking down at where you are unable to imagine your reality. I can’t wait to be back there!”

Black Canyon Hoover Dam Rafting Tour

Experience the Colorado River below the Hoover Dam on this awesome Black Canyon Hoover Dam Rafting Tour.

This is a unique day trip, aboard a motor-assisted inflatable raft, through the spectacular Black Canyon – the natural gorge of the Colorado River immediately below the Hoover Dam. Enjoy and share in the history, desert wildlife and beauty of this otherwise inaccessible and rugged landscape on this 5-hour excursion. Finally, you will be dropped off at your Las Vegas Hotel in the afternoon.




Round trip transportation is provided from various Las Vegas hotels to the outfitter just outside of historic Boulder City. You’ll then board comfortable tour buses for transportation to the restricted launch area at the base of the Hoover Dam at the river’s edge.

Ready to Launch
This is an extremely rare view of the Hoover Dam that very few people have the opportunity to see. Guests board large comfortable rafts that have been carefully constructed with safety in mind. Rafts have multiple air chambers and are outfitted with all of the Coast Guard required and recommended safety equipment.

Explore Black Canyon
During this excursion, experienced and knowledgeable guides share the history of this magnificent geological area. The high canyon walls will leave you breathless. Be prepared to see Desert Big Horn Sheep, Osprey, and Great Blue Heron in their natural setting.

Have a Tasty Lunch
This tour stops along the shore to give you a chance to enjoy the cool, clear and calm waters below Hoover Dam. You might take this opportunity to enjoy the box lunch provided while watching and listening to the sights and sounds of this magnificent desert.

Back to Shore
Your trip ends on the Arizona side of the Colorado River at Willow Beach – the uppermost boundary of Lake Mohave. Here you have the chance to shop for unique souvenirs of your trip before boarding air-conditioned tour buses for the return trip over the Mike O’Callaghan Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge to our tour desk or your Las Vegas hotel.

Review your tour

3 Hour Tour – Excellent!

“We went on the 3 hour tour last week and enjoyed it immensely. The big powered raft was smooth with beautiful scenery, and as a bonus, provided close-up views of Hoover Dam that are stunning. The staff were all excellent and we got to see some big horn sheep too. As Las Vegas locals, we highly recommend this tour.”
