No Green cave
, Jun 2021
Things to know: views are beautiful on the trip! Water is 50degrees so don’t tip or 15min til hypothermia… However you will kayak to a cave that is tiny & doesn’t even show green unless it’s the perfect time of day (in afternoon) with perfect blue sky & it’s so small when u r crammed in there with your entire group even if it were green there wouldn’t be much room to see. Huge let down since it’s the name of the tour & picture advertised… even guide says 80% of time no green. Then the ENTIRE second half of the trip is strong paddling against the current against the wind the entire way back upstream where you had just came from. Be prepared to be exhausted & sore afterwards! Btw afternoon is windiest according to the guide. We had morning and could not imagine paddling back if it were more windy & our group were athletic teenagers!
Cool kayak experience!

We had a fantastic time on the kayaking trip to Emerald cave. Our guide, Antonio provided information about the canyon on our trip and gave us adequate time at the stops to dip in the water and have a snack. He was very personable and made our trip a great experience. We would highly recommend this trip if you want to leave the Vegas strip and take in the beauty of the canyon.

What a fabulous and awe inspiring trip down the Colorado River. 9am launch time provided the perfect temperature. David was a great guide- knowledgeable and personable. Was another highlight of our trip outside of the hustle and bustle of the Vegas Strip.

I recommend a kayak trip

The tour group personnel had a medical emergency prior to the start of the tour. This caused a two hour delay (understandable). The tour group replaced their injured member, then rushed us through the tour. There was little instruction, improper gear was issued to my kids (causing injuries, and a displeasure with the activity), and no breaks (a break with snacks and a short hike was part of package). The lack of breaks caused discomfort for the older members of my group who needed to stand up and stretch out their back. Improper gear and lack of breaks made what should have been a wonderful experience into a lackluster time on the water. The tour itself is beautiful, the guides knowledge of the area was excellent. The medical emergency was unfortunate and the delay understandable. The problem was what occurred after. We just felt like cattle being herded upstream. The tour ended only 45 mins later than planned which means our 4 hour planed trip lasted 2 hours and 45 mins. It wasn't a question of daylight either. I would book another trip but this one felt like work and was not enjoyable.

Hi Bobby, Thank you for your comments, we appreciate your feedback. Thank you for being flexible in the face of a true emergency with one of our staff. We did the best we could to replace them and get you on your tour. While I am sure there was an expedient nature to getting your group out as it was running so late we did not want to make your tour feel rushed or like herded cattle. This tour is, however, a 3 hour tour, not a 4 hour tour and definitely not one of our most leisurely ones. At any rate, I will be sure to follow up with your guides to find out about the improper gear that you have reported as we take great care in providing well fitted gear and snacks for our guests. I invite you to call and talk to me personally (Joyce 702-293-5026) about any additional concerns. Guest satisfaction is of highest priority. Again, thank you for your feedback.
Well worth it

The whole experience was amazing. Our tour guide was very helpful and super pleasant to be with. He even took us on a mini hike and we got to see some beautiful views.

Best Guides/ Amazing Experience

Gianni and Kevin (?) were amazing! They had every detail covered on what was a cold Vegas day. The jackets, towels, dry bags, they offered us was above and beyond. They were educational and entertaining! They took pictures for us! This was the absolute best experience worth every single penny! The views were breath taking! Out of a weekend in Vegas this was hands down each one of our favorite part. I could go on and on. So worth it. I’m so thankful. Thank you thank you!

We're so happy you had a great time! We think Gianni and Kevin are pretty amazing too! We hope you can join us again in the future.
A zen experience away from the opulence, concrete and noise of Vegas.

The quiet of the river away from the craziness. A look into the history of the river and the man who measured water levels. The emerald cave was a minuscule part of the whole experience. Our guide Gianni- the best!
