Kayak from the mighty Hoover Dam all year. Evolution Expeditions secures the necessary permit which provides a fish eye view of the massive Hoover Dam from its base. Adventure starts with a descent down the original road caved into the canyon walls to create this massive construction project of the 1930’s. Kayak from the base of the Hoover Dam, down the Colorado River and through the Black Canyon. Steam inside the sauna cave and soak in geothermal hot spring pools hidden within side-canyons. Leap from rock formations into the refreshing Colorado River at one of the several stops to explore the Colorado River Valley.
Be prepared to spot Desert Big Horn Sheep, Coyote, Falcons, Bald Eagles and different types of migratory water fowl while paddling the twelve mile stretch. Enjoy the beauty of Black Canyon, Emerald Cave and history behind 1921 water gauging sites. This kayak tour is perfect for beginners to advanced paddlers.
