HOOVER DAM RAFTING ADVENTURES TO LAUNCH 2024 SEASON WEDNESDAY, FEB. 28
Family-Friendly Adventure Provides Breathtaking Views of Legendary Hoover Dam
LAKE MEAD NATIONAL RECREATION AREA (January 2024) – Lake Mead Mohave Adventures (LMMA) announces its popular Hoover Dam Rafting Adventures will return to its full operational schedule on Wednesday, Feb. 28. Returning for its historic 41st season, visitors will have the opportunity to take the Hoover Dam Raft Tour and Hoover Dam Postcard Tour every Wednesday through Sunday beginning that day.
Guests embarking on the Hoover Dam Raft Tours during opening weekend (Wednesday, Feb. 28 through Sunday, March 3) will also be treated to chef Lynn’s lake-famous gourmet cinnamon rolls at check in time. Additionally, LMMA will be giving away exciting prizes during check-in for both tours.
Offering memorable excursions along the Black Canyon National Water Trail on the majestic Colorado River, all tours feature up-close photo opportunities at the base of the legendary Hoover Dam beneath the Mike O’Callaghan Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge—the widest single-arch concrete bridge in the Western Hemisphere. Visitors enjoy a journey down the Colorado River while riding motor-assisted, inflatable rafts through the spectacular Black Canyon. Expert guides share their knowledge of this magnificent geological area and its native fauna, including the desert bighorn sheep, osprey and great blue heron.
