"I want to tell you how amazing my trip was with Kayak Lake Mead  - amazing guides - simultaneously professional and easy-going and very enjoyable company. In fact, the point I would like to make is that the atmosphere created by your company becomes a one of friendship and personal growth, not just a "tour for the masses." The equipment was top notch, the accommodations freely and happily given, and the service courteous and fun."

Kayaking at Temple Bar

Kayak Lake Mead is the only local outfitter that does kayak trips out of Temple Bar. The drive is a little further, all our trips on Temple Bay are full day trips, but the views, the solitude, the clean water and beaches make this a great place to paddle, to explore, and or to find a nice sandy beach and just relax.

Many of our return customers who have paddled once or twice with us in the Black Canyon, want to know what else I would recommend - this trip is the answer. 

This is one of the most beautiful, visually stunning, and photographically rewarding trips one can do anywhere on Lake Mead or in the Black Canyon. 

This is about a 6 to 8 mile paddle round trip depending upon where we go. To get there, we cross Temple Basin towards The Temple, stop by Decision Island, and explore around a little.   

This bay lies inside Temple Bay and under the shadow of The Temple. 

​With exposed open water, this trip is best for experienced paddlers.

This is a full day trip priced at $180 per person. Group size can be just 1 but is limited to a maximum of 7 people.

"See how the water is like a mirror!  No wind, no waves, no noise from the wind, no noise at all...just plain quietness.  Never heard that before!" - Erik Laflamme's comments after paddling in Temple Bay
