Catch the Eclipse from the Colorado River; Spectacular Vantage Point for This One-Day-Only Experience with Black Canyon River Adventures Aug. 21
Colorado River
rafting outfitter, Black Canyon River Adventures, offers guests an extraordinary vantage point for observing the solar eclipse taking place on Monday, Aug. 21. The eclipse will be at its peak when the Boulder City, Nevada-based tour company launches its 12-mile, smooth-water rafting trip near the base of Hoover Dam at approximately 10:30 a.m. 

Guests will be able to track the progress of the eclipse for another hour and 20 minutes while their guide pilots the motor-assisted raft down the river.

Black Canyon River Adventures’ rafting excursions take approximately 4.5 hours, launching from just downriver of Hoover Dam, beneath the Pat Tillman -­ Michael O’Callaghan Memorial Bridge. Guests will learn about the history, desert wildlife and beauty in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River from their guide. The tour meets at the Lake Mead RV Village in Boulder City; out-of-town guests may arrange for round-trip transportation from their hotel. This special version of Black Canyon River Adventures’ tour will include eclipse-viewing eyewear, as well as a boxed lunch and bottled water for a picnic stop on a sandy beach along the way.

The Aug. 21 tour departs at 10 a.m. Guests are asked to check in by 9:30 a.m. at the Lake Mead RV Village, located at 268 Lakeshore Road, Boulder City, NV 89005. The cost for adults (16 years and older) is $97; for children 13 to 15 years, $87, and for children 5 to 12 years, $58. Children under 5 are free. Round-trip transportation to and from a Las Vegas-area hotel is $49 per person.
