Here's what people are saying about Evolution Expeditions.
Candace Bracken is the best kayak guide ever. Evolution Expeditions seems like a well-oiled machine. The kayaks are in tip-top shape and the same goes for all the other gear too. They are efficient, professional, and friendly. Marnie answered all my questions over the phone and I am looking forward to trying the Hoover Dam tour next. Thank you for such a fun and educational day.
From start to finish our experience with Evolution Expeditions was PERFECT! Email communication, check-in process, reminder phone call, pick up, and drop off were all excellent. The instructions at the beginning were thorough and helpful - we knew what to do the whole time. Kayaks are of high quality with plenty of dry space for a pack if you have one. Our guide Ray was fabulous! She made everything fun and was so knowledgeable of the area. She kept us on track at a leisurely pace. She shared area history and fun facts, answering all our questions with ease. Besides the incredible landscape, we saw interesting cactus varieties, various birds, and bighorn sheep! Hot springs were AMAZING. The lunch was great! Perfect day from start to finish - HIGHLY recommended!!
This was a bucket list item I didn't know I had! Absolutely amazing trip. It was incredible to see the Hoover Dam from below. We hiked to a couple of all-natural hot springs, and the tour guides were playful and helped us curate the experience to get what we wanted out of it. The waters were crystal clear and bright green on the Colorado. If you want to see Emerald Cove, make sure you get an early tour like 7 am - it was too dark to see on the 9 am tour. Definitely would recommend the 7-hour tour!!
AMAZING Kayaking Tour. Top of the line equipment and staff. So impressed with the professionalism of this staff and company. I would HIGHLY recommend this to amateur as well as experienced kayakers. Our guide shared history on the tour as well. LOVED this tour!!! Thank you!! Terre
Excellent tour!! Our family of five (mom/dad/three adult kids), all amateur kayakers, did this tour and had a fabulous time! Rachel and Candace were knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly and made the four-mile round trip seem like we were paddling only half that distance. Serene and beautiful! Highly recommend a waterproof phone bag to hang around your neck so your phone stays dry and easily accessible. Definitely worth the one hour drive from Vegas!
