Lake Mead Mohave Adventures announces the return of its Hoover Dam Rafting Adventures, which have relaunched for the 40th season. Visitors now have the opportunity to take the Hoover Dam Raft Tour and Hoover Dam Postcard Tour every Thursday through Sunday.
All Hoover Dam Rafting Adventures tours, about 40 minutes from Las Vegas, feature up-close photo ops at the base of the Hoover Dam beneath the Mike O’Callaghan Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. Tour-goers get to embark on a family-friendly journey down the Colorado River while riding motor-assisted, inflatable rafts through Black Canyon. Along the ride, expert guides share their knowledge of this geological area and its native fauna.
“Since 1983, these tours have provided generations of visitors with the ultimate Colorado River adventure,” says Chad Taylor, director of marketing and guest experience, Lake Mead Mohave Adventures, in a press release. “Combining breathtaking views of Hoover Dam with relaxing and informative rides down the river, these tours continue to serve as the best family-friendly activity during the spring and summer months.”
