    What To Wear

    What can I expect on the tour?

    You can expect to have a great time with a knowledgeable guide as you explore the waters and landscape around the Hoover Dam, Colorado River, and Black Canyon.

    What should I wear?

    Wear layered clothing (i.e., swimsuit and layers for warmth) but preferably no cotton or denim. For footwear, bring water shoes, water sandals, or tennis shoes. No flip-flops please. And a hat, sunglasses, & sunscreen are strongly recommended.

    What if I don’t have any kayaking experience?

    Beginners are welcome! Although, by the end of the trip, you’ll be a confident kayaker. Your professional guide introduces newcomers to kayaking every day.

    Will I get wet?

    Yes. This is a river trip. You will definitely get wet, at least up to your knees. Anything above that is considered a bonus! 

    Is there white water? Will I tip over?

    Most days, the river is flat water with no rapids. Depending on wind, weather, and flow rates, there can be choppy water, rolling waves, and even large swells along the way. Your kayak is stable, and most people make it through the day without any “out-of-boat experiences". This doesn’t mean that you should take the river lightly! The Colorado is a big cold river, and there can be strong currents, eddies, hidden obstacles, and other unforeseen circumstances that may pose a threat. Your guide is prepared for this and will steer you in the right direction for a safe and memorable experience.

    What about dietary restrictions?

    Please let Virgin Experience Gifts know of any special dietary needs at the time of booking to see if accommodations can be made.
