About This Tour

For those looking for spectacular scenery, Evolution Expeditions has the perfect kayak tour. The Emerald Cave Express tour paddles onto the Colorado River at various times, starting at the Willow Beach marina. A great tour option for beginners or advanced paddlers alike. We offer top of the line gear and equipment with sit inside Prijon touring kayaks with rudders that have padded backs and padded seats, NRS life vests, and Aqua Bound paddles. All our guides are WFA/CPR certified and go through an extensive training program to provide excellent customer service and ensure our guests safety.

The moment the paddle dips into the Colorado River, one is transported back in time. Paddle past historic sites of the 1920's era government project that gave life to the desert southwest. Venture into the Black Canyon narrows to explore the river that exists only an hour outside of the busy lights of the Las Vegas strip. Learn how to back your kayak up into the cave to get some stunning photos of the emerald green water. The cave itself is the cherry on top of a spectacular afternoon on the beautiful section of river we paddle.

We did this trip as a work team building event and it was amazing! So beautiful and fun! Charlie and Michael were phenomenal and their friendly and upbeat personalities enhanced the trip. The scenery was magnificent and I will definitely be using Evolution Expeditions again and recommend them to others!

My experience with Evolution Expeditions was AMAZING! I don't know how to swim but our instructors, Aaron and Missy reassured me that they would come to my aid if anything unfortunate happened.My friends and I chose the 3 hour tour since we weren't sure if we could handle all the physical activity but when the tour was over, we wished we would have taken the longer tour. The instructors explained the tour, what would see and gave instructions on how to get in and out of the kayak. The team provided the group with water and great snacks. The Emerald Cave was beautiful, the tour was breathtaking! I still can't believe I kayaked down the Colorado River. The most amazing tour! Thank you so much Evolution Expeditions! You made my 50th birthday EPIC! I'm totally changed from this experience.
