FUN but small cave
Danny_K

Michele was a wonderful guide very involved and had lots of great information. The Van ride was short thank God since all 3 trips we took we were next to last picked up and always in the back of the van were the ride is ruff on our backs. I had to cancel my trip to Hoover Dam since the ride in the back of a large van the day before hit every bump and then some. The kayaking itself was great and the river was perfect ( prepare for the water to be cold) and only complaint was the cave is very small and crowded. Still I recommend this trip to anyone interested in kayaking and having some fun. FYI make sure to take sun screen and a hat.

Loved every minute! Our driver/tour guide Tyler was sooo cool! Surprisingly enough I live in Vegas And I’ve never been! Let me tell you though, I’m a pretty fit person, but I’ve never been kayaking and woahhhh what a workout!!!! Lol Number one advice: wear sunscreen, bring a hat, And leave all clothing in the van it will only be soaking wet later on lol

Our guide, Zack, was one of the best. Very professional and light hearted humor. Very knowledgeable as well. The Emerald Cave was small and not really worth the long wait. But the rest of the tour was great fun.
