This April 14, 2014 photo shows a kayaker with boats on the shore of the Colorado River in Nevada. Outfitters can pick you up at a hotel in Las Vegas first thing in the morning and have you paddling the river through the Black Canyon some 30 miles from Las Vegas before lunch. The put-in area is near the Hoover Dam, a federal security zone, so watercraft must be transported by an authorized livery service, whether you bring your own gear, rent boats or sign up for a guided trip.
