Michelle & Tyler were both excellent guides. My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time. Expect about an hour paddle up the lake to the cave and an hour paddle or so back (depending on the wind). I believe it’s somewhere between 4-5 miles round trip. On the way back you’ll stop at a small beach for a snack and one of the guides will give you a brief history of the mining that occurred in the area. Overall, the guides were great, the cave is very pretty, and the paddle on the Lake is gorgeous.

Upon 1st contact from the guide Michelle, everything was cheerful and pleasant. She reached out to let me know my pick up time and answered any questions that I had. Furthermore, I met amazing people from various parts of the US. I’m so glad I chose this adventure.

Our best excursion

We went on five excursions while visiting Las Vegas and this was voted our favorite. Scott was an excellent guide making sure we saw everything and provided some local history. One thing should be pointed out and that is the green glow inside the cave comes from reflective light off the bottom of the riverbed and is most prominent during a brief time period.

That's amazing! So glad you were able to get out and Explore what Nevada has to offer. Our River Trip is amazing from the views to the History. In the Fall the sunlight shifts to behind the canyon and our window of time is limited. In the Summer its all green all day! Come back and check us out in the Summertime.

The BEST Kayak Tour
Sydnie_G

My boyfriend and I came to Vegas for New Years weekend - we decided we wanted to book a few excursions and explore outside of the normal Vegas experience. This was our first excursion and I am SO happy that it was. Scott is absolutely an amazing tour guide (and overall person). We were with one other group and I’d like to think we all equally entertained each other. Scott was so knowledgeable about all the history of the river, wildlife, nature & had some amazing stories for us that we would never of known of! We even saw a mountain goat which was the most amazing thing! If we could each give him 5 stars we would! We recommend this tour to everyone (bring an extra phone because Scott will also be your photographer!!). 100% would do it again & ask for him again!

We love amazing reviews!!! Thank you for taking the time to write this. We have some of the best photography guides out there. They enjoy capturing the special moments on the River. Come back and call us directly. We would love to havre you back out!
