Different take on the same dam
Akshal_A, Oct 2023
The serenity of the river and a unique way to look at the dam makes it worth visiting! However the tour has a slightly slow pace, so be aware that younger folks, or those without someone accompanying them may feel less engaged

Our boat captain did a great job explaining about the building of the dam and the bridge and pointed out many interesting things along the way. Snacks and water were provided and the boat stopped at an area to take a quick dip in the cold water.
EXCELLENT!!
Casey_H, Aug 2023
Very knowledgeable and a view you cannot see anywhere else. Highly recommend for those who want to get a full history of the Hoover dam, and the Colorado river. And you can’t beat the snacks, water, and cool refreshing towel.
Great tour, Great Guide, Great price!
Tiuna_T, Jul 2023
We purchased the 1.5hr tour which I thought was a great price. We were responsible for our own transportation so we rented a car for a day and the ride was less than 40 minutes to the pickup location. From our bus ride to the dam which was a 10 minute drive our tour guide(s) were great. There was so much great information. Once on the raft our tour guide Bob was nothing short of amazing. We even had the opportunity to take a quick dip in the dam during our tour. 10/10 would recommend.

Matt was really lovely! I really felt like we had access to something special and private since we were the only people on the river. This was the perfect way to see Hoover Dam and be a part of nature.

Hoover Dam Portrait Tour

The friendliness of the staff, the beautiful water and history of the dam. I would recommend this tour to anyone!!
Not as exciting as we expected. Way to much superfluous narration.
Richard_C, Apr 2022
Viewing Hoover Dam from the water gives you a great perspective of its size. Information about the construction helped with understanding the immensity of the project.
Best way to see Hoover Dam!

Impressionnant ! Une technologie incroyable ce barrage mais dommage qu’il n’y soit qu’en anglais, je ne suis pas bilingue donc pas tout compris. Le radeau et la balade ont été sympathiques
