What you'll do

This is going to be a unique ouhot springs and fishing adventure by jet boat.

Meet me at Willow Beach Marina in Lake Mead National Recreation Area at the 1:00 PM pacific time. This is where the Colorado river flows into Lake Mohave.

We'll get you into the jet boat from the main boat dock and quickly learn to be a safe boat passenger and wilderness traveler. Then head up river into Black Canyon toward the hot springs with fishing gear, snacks, water, and cooler of ice onboard. You’ll get the chance to fish for big, beautiful, striped bass and rainbow trout where the river turns to lake.

Take in the sheer beauty of Black Canyon while we navigate upstream through strong current for over 10 miles. We’ll stop by Emerald Cave, and continue past incredible desert side canyons keeping an eye out for wildlife.

At the very upstream part of our adventure, just when we almost get to Hoover Dam, we’ll explore the wonderful hot springs along the Arizona National Water Trail. Hop in for a quick dip or take a long soak and enjoy the time you have in paradise. There is also great swimming to be had in select locations in the cool river water.

We'll have 4 hours total to take it all in, then we'll cruise on back to boat dock and you'll be back on the road by 5:30 PM Pacific time.

Where you'll be

Black Canyon is a mesmerizing red wall gorge that starts where Hoover Dam releases the mighty Colorado and flows into Lake Mohave. This is the big water oasis you're looking for just outside of Las Vegas.

We'll start at the downstream end at Willow Beach Marina and jet boat upstream to Hoover dam and the hot springs.

We’ll stop by sandy beaches, narrow side canyons, and Emerald cove. You'll never forget or regret it.

I had to change my birthday plans from going to see Sting at Caesar’s palace since it was canceled due to CoVid. I found this AirBnB experience and went for it not expecting to top a live concert but I gotta tell you, Sting might have lost the chance to see me in the future since I can’t wait to be more and more outdoors and experiencing the magic that happened today. Thanks Eric for the amazing opportunity to have an unforgettable birthday.
