This trip is fully narrated by experienced, knowledgeable guides who offer incredible history of the Hoover Dam and the Back Canyon National Water trail. A refreshing stop along the way at a side beach will give you the opportunity to stretch your legs, swim or play in the cool clear water of the Colorado River.
