Black Canyon's knowledgeable guides maneuver colossal rafts between sheer cliff faces as they unravel tales of bygone settlements and inhabitants. Passengers load into busses or vans at the Hacienda Hotel and Casino, departing for the Hoover Dam Postcard Tour's dock settled in the Black Canyon River's gentle swells. Safe, inflatable boats shove off from the base of the Hoover Dam, treating passengers to a view rarer than seeing Bigfoot get his initials shaved into his back. An about-face brings voyagers face to face with 2,000-foot-high walls painted in a rainbow of colors. Captains share historical anecdotes about the former trading epicenter and recreation area for 45 minutes as indigenous desert bighorn sheep, ospreys, and great blue herons may frolic, freeze, or vogue for photo ops.

The eco-friendly company requires visitors to don hiking or walking shoes before climbing aboard. Kids ages 12 and younger snuggle into the pillowy embrace of life jackets as parents slather on sunscreen and capture fleeting family memories with cameras sporting high-octane shutters.

Black Canyon River Adventures

The year 2013 marks the 30th anniversary of guided rafting tours through the Colorado River's Black Canyon. Created by volcanic activity over the course of millennia, its walls rise more than 2,000 feet above the Colorado River’s edge. Rafters glide between these walls on the company’s assorted rafting tours, which also incorporate visits to sites such as the Hoover Dam or the Techatticup Mine, where they learn about area mining history.

Fabulous trip! The staff was wonderful and very knowledgible-we learned of the history, the construction and interesting facts regarding the dam. We recommend this company highly.
