Black Canyon and Lake Mead: If you're bringing your own kayak or canoe... The Black Canyon  of the Colorado Rive between Willow Beach and Hoover Dam is a wonderful place to paddle. However, often overlooked as a paddling destination is the rest of Lake Mojave and especially Lake Mead. 

Both Lakes Mead and Mojave have miles and miles of shoreline and coves to explore by kayak. It's an amazing area, a water playground in the middle of the desert. Paddle in the eastern basins and canyons of Lake Mead or south of Willow Beach on Lake Mojave - and you will probably not see another paddler.

If you like hiking and exploring backcountry areas off road - you will definitely see no one! Much of the desert surrounding Lake Mead is roadless. So, your kayak is a great means to access hiking and exploring adventures. 

If you like playing in the big winds - Lake Mead can be windy! There are few things more fun than paddling and playing in the wind and waves of Lake Mead during the hot Summer months. Water temperatures commonly reach into the upper 70s and even 80s. Imagine practicing wind-driven-wave surfing on miles of big fetch while enjoying some respite from our desert heat. It's priceless!

But if you're trying to miss the wind, you can often find protection in the Virgin Canyon with its high canyon walls.
