A zen experience away from the opulence, concrete and noise of Vegas.
, Dec 2020
The quiet of the river away from the craziness. A look into the history of the river and the man who measured water levels. The emerald cave was a minuscule part of the whole experience. Our guide Gianni- the best!

Thank you, Stacie! Neil and is pretty cool guide and the river is magical. Thanks for the kind words.
Good day trip
, Sep 2020
This was a fun day trip. The whole thing lasted from about 7am to 3pm between transport and the kayaking itself. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The transport took about 30ish minutes from the Strip to the shop, where a trailer with the boats was hitched up and then another 30ish minutes to the launch site. The kayaking took about 2.5-3 hours. They had PLENTY of water available but relatively few snacks. Dry bags (large) are available. Even though it got to 115F (!?!) that day, the water was cold and the kayaking was relatively cool. Definitely wear and bring sunscreen and / or coverings and a hat. You're in the sun basically the whole time. The emerald cave itself is underwhelming, but the experience overall was good. And suitable for any level of kayaker.

Hi Thomas, Thanks for the nice review! We value your comments and pledge to have more snacks on hand! Mother Nature is in charge of the Emerald Cave and some days it is much more brilliant than others, but we are glad your enjoyed yourself. We hope to see back again soon.

My wife and I went on this kayaking trip and it was fabulous. We had no one else with us besides our guide...who was niel...and he was fantastic. Niel provided great information during the trip and had a great friendly personality. Highly recommend going.
