Lake Mead Kayak Tour

Lake Mead is the setting for this amazing paddling adventure. The perfect kayak trip for all skill levels, (including those with no experience), this relaxing journey is a must!

Cruise out to the Boulder Islands for a leisurely hike, look for seashells on the beaches, or enjoy a refreshing swim in crystal clear waters. Enjoy a picnic style lunch to top off a great day of kayaking on Lake Mead.

This trip is a beautiful, peaceful lake experience! Tour includes all equipment (high performance boat w/ rudder, paddle, life vest), plus a dry bag for your gear.

Be sure to wear a bathing suit in summer months; the water temperatures are perfect for swimming. A professional guide will be at your side all day to offer instruction, stories, local history, and the information about construction of the Hoover Dam. So sit back, relax, and enjoy your kayaking adventure on Lake Mead.

Review from Mark L.

"That was such a great trip! From the way in which you handled my first call, to my change of date request , to your advise that Kylie was an awesome host. You really nailed it as we say in New York. My sincerest thanks and admiration to you and your team at DA. Your genuine enthusiasm for what you do is so evident in how you and your team execute. It is really impressive I will make sure the folks at National Geographic Traveler hear about my trip too. Desert Adventure's story should not stay in Vegas!"
