Kayaking

Grab a paddle, learn new skills and explore the West’s amazing beaches, bays and rivers.

Black Canyon Kayak and Hot Springs

Check Availability >

Take a break from all the hard work and reward yourself over Thanksgiving weekend, go on an Outback Adventures trip. As we move up the river, the valley turns to canyon with walls towering vertically out of the river.  We might see an occasional Bighorn Sheep, and what is left of the silver and gold mines of the area.  Camping on the river next to the Arizona Hot Springs we will be able to soak away the cold of the winter.  We will also have the opportunity for a day trip to the sauna cave, exploration opportunities in Gold-strike Canyon with a heated waterfall, and an up close and personal with the mighty Hoover Dam.  This is one of our most awesome trips, and for that reason it will fill early, so register soon.
