LAKE MEAD MOHAVE ADVENTURES TO RELAUNCH HOOVER DAM RAFTING ADVENTURES MARCH 3
For the first time since March 2020, Lake Mead Mohave Adventures announces the highly anticipated return of its Colorado River rafting tours this spring. Formerly known as Black Canyon River Adventures, the newly renamed Hoover Dam Rafting Adventures will open its Hoover Dam Raft Tour and Hoover Dam Postcard Tour to guests every Thursday through Sunday beginning Thursday, March 3.
Offering memorable excursions along the Black Canyon National Water Trail on the majestic Colorado River, all tours will feature up-close photo opportunities at the base of the Hoover Dam. Visitors will enjoy a journey down the Colorado River upon motor-assisted inflatable rafts through the spectacular Black Canyon. Expert guides will share their knowledge of this magnificent geological area and the local fauna, including the desert bighorn sheep, osprey and great blue heron in their natural settings.
Available 2022 rafting tours include:
Hoover Dam Raft Tour: This day trip experience includes stops along the iconic shore below Hoover Dam where guests can relax among the clear and calm waters of the Colorado River. Guests will begin their journey at Lake Mead RV Village for check in at 9:30 a.m. before embarking on an adventure-packed three-hour rafting tour. While rafting along the Colorado River, guests will receive a lunch, including a turkey wrap, chips, a fruit cup, a cookie and water or a special meal catered by request. Visitors will end their rafting journey at Willow Beach Marina & Campground where they’ll board air-conditioned tour buses for the return trip over the Mike O’Callaghan Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge back to Lake Mead RV Village. This tour is free for children four and under and starts at $110 for children ages five to 15 and $140 for guests 16 years or older. The price includes the entrance fee to the national park. Round-trip transportation to and from Las Vegas hotels is also available for $80 per person.

Guests begin their journey at the Hoover Dam Lodge in Boulder City, Nevada, for check in at 10:30 a.m. before embarking on a one and a half hour journey along the Colorado River. Guests will enjoy up-close views of the Mike O’Callaghan Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge while rafting along the Colorado River at the base of the Hoover Dam before boarding tour buses back to the Hoover Dam Lodge. This tour is free for children four and under and starts at $49 for children ages five to 15 and $69 for guests 16 years or older. Snacks and beverages are included.
“After two years of halted operations due to COVID, we look forward to welcoming our valued guests back to experience these once-in-a-lifetime excursions along the Hoover Dam and Colorado River,” said Chad Taylor, director of sales and marketing, Lake Mead Mohave Adventures. “Whether it is an hour-and-a-half-tour to learn some history on our Postcard Tour or the most surreal three-hour tour from the base of the dam down to Willow Beach, Black Canyon offers a one-of-a-kind experience for all guests.”
In addition, Hoover Dam Rafting Adventures offers fully customizable charters for private groups of up to 150 passengers.
