We drove up Friday afternoon (Jan 10th)and camp at the beach.
On Saturday morning, the outfitter picked us up and dropped us into the Colorado River right front of Hoover Dam. This is where our adventure begins. With a map in hand, we took a relaxing stroll down (the water floats about 1.5 miles per hour) the Colorado River.

This is a 12 mile, flat water, mostly shallow section of the Colorado River, that cuts through a long and beautiful canyon with many hot springs. There is a scenery with desert views, rocks, longhorn sheep, awesome colors! We stopped in a few spots to explore some cool canyons with weeping moss formations, stick our feet into hot springs, sit under a hot waterfall, and much more…. You may explore as much as you can handle. We camped in the AZ Hot Springs camping spot (established camp site with 2 ‘porta-potties’) and had some great dinner. Close to the campsite are some nice hot springs to warm up in.

We continueed to float down the river Sunday mid morning, check out Emerald Cave, etc…. and were picked up by the outfitter at Willow beach early-afternoon.

No prior canoeing or kayaking experience needed, the river will literally float you (in most spots). Canoes hold 2 people and a lot of gear, while you can request a single kayak also (much less gear though).

Due to the Hoover Dam security you will need an ID, and the permit is by name.
