Some Helpful Suggestions

Be Ready to Get Wet

Canoeing and Kayaking are water sports, be prepared to get wet while getting into and out of the boats. Please wear appropriate attire.

Footwear

Although flip-flops are great to get wet, we DO NOT recommend them for paddling. We suggest strap in sandals or even water shoes for better grip. We will have flip-flops available for once you finish your adventure. 

Sun Screen

The Hoover Reservoir is home to thousands of trees and plenty of coves but that does not mean you will be safe from the sun. Most of the reservoir is not covered by tree and does not have a lot of shade. We suggest you wear and bring extra sunscreen. 

No Alcohol

It is against all laws to have an open alcoholic drink while on the Hoover Reservoir. 

Recycling

Keep Our Water Clean. We will have recycle bins at our daily locations, please save all bottles, bags, and garbage till the end of your adventure and bring it to us once you are done. We will happily recycle everything we can. Thanks for keeping our waters clean. 

Have Fun

You're outside, you're on an adventure, enjoy yourself. Be curious, explore, have fun. Isn't that why we're all here?
