Best company out of Las Vegas for a paddle on the Colorado.

Great at all levels, communication, transportation, kayaking experience, go for it with them. Small enough to make it personal. We are paddlers, and know good equipment, and they have good equipment. Even ready with a back support for me. Quality service all around.

Great Experience for Beginner Kayaker

As a first time kayaker, Kylee made this trip seem easy and enjoyable. Very informative on our ride through Boulder City on the way to the marina. She was great at providing instruction at the beginning and letting you go at your own pace. The river current was very light, making it a relaxing kayak and we were able to enjoy the sites and beach stops along the way without stressing. The cave is an inlet in the rock wall but the emerald green water color is spectacular. The water is cold and we loved the opportunity to take a few dips! Note the entire trip from LV and back takes about 5hrs. River DogZ also worked with us on scheduling due to unforeseen events while we were in the area. Had a blast and next time will opt for the full day kayak with Kylee!

Wow! What an experience! We had a great time kayaking the Colorado River with Michelle. She was friendly, upbeat and knowledgable! The pickup was a smooth process from the Luxor and to the launch site (about 50 minutes) which included commentary from our guide about the local population, its evolution and the geographical sites. The kayaking itself was incredible - the views of the canyon were priceless! The breeze on the water was a great relief from the hot desert sun, and thankfully bottled water was provided by our guide along with tasty snacks. I would highly recommend this excursion for a group, couple or family! What an adventure!
