Where you'll be

Emerald Cave on Colorado River -

Thanks to the remarkable power of science and nature working together, this beautiful spot lives up to its name with photogenic emerald green waters on sunny days. The emerald hue doesn’t come from algae in the water, it occurs as a result of the sun’s reflection off of the surrounding cavern’s yellow-brownish walls and the blue of the sky combining to create a stunning emerald green appearance.

Rated 4.95 out of 5 from 546 reviews.

Great experience-way better than I expected. Our guide was Mike, he did an outstanding job of keeping us engaged in the history, wildlife and plants of the River/Dam/general area. 10/10 would do again! Thanks for a great day, and for the warm fruit :)

This was a highlight of our trip to Las Vegas! The river was stunning, the kayaking and swimming were super fun, and our guide was generous and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this excursion to everyone.

This experience is in a beautiful location with super cool refreshing water to escape the heat and crowds of Vegas for a day. Quick and comfortable ride from Mandalay Bay. Kayaks are easy to use, we had a lot of beginners in our group and everyone did great. We saw a bald eagle and a big horn sheep so we definitely had a perfect day!! Lots of drinking water was available and plenty of snacks as well. Also, the marina where you begin and end has a store and small restaurant if you need more.
