Overview

Vegas Glass Kayaks is the only completely transparent kayak/canoe hybrid outfitter operating in the pristine waters of the Colorado river as it winds down the Black Canyon area of Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Just 45 minutes off Las Vegas Blvd lies an oasis of natural beauty not paralleled anywhere else in the world!
