Black Canyon Kayak/Canoe Trip March 27-30, 2014

We will drive to Hacienda Casino/hotel Thursday evening March 27.  The drivers will unload all the river gear early Friday morning, shuttle their cars to Willow Beach, get a ride back to the Hacienda Casino (Desert River Kayakers will provide the ride, rental boats, and trailers), load up the rest of our gear on the trailers, get a ride down to the river just below Hoover Dam,  and then launch our boats. We will visit the Sauna Cave, Gold Strike Canyon, and then paddle 5 miles down to Arizona Hot Springs area. We'll stay two nights at Arizona Hot Springs,  paddle 7 miles to Willow Beach on Sunday,  and then take out on Sunday afternoon. Please make your own reservations on-line at the Hacienda for Thursday night! The rooms usually are about $40. Canoe/kayak rental is around $65 pp for the weekend and the shuttle is around $35 pp if you bring your own boat.

Permits are $17.00 per person and this will get your name on the list.  The boat rental will be collected no later than the morning we launch. You an either pay me or Helen (owner of Desert River Kayakers).  I take cash or check. Helen prefers credit cards or cash.

Let me know if you are interested!

    Can you explain the plan a bit more? I've never been there. Are we going downstream or somehow spending time in the same spring area?
