The road leading to the Hoover Dam launch site is in a security zone and access is limited to Bureau of Reclamation employees and their contractors. Therefore, if you have personal paddle craft that you want to take down the river, you must make arrangements and reservations with one of the authorized outfitters to transport your craft to the launch site. Most outfitters can also provide rental craft if desired. Launch fees are $17 per person (non-refundable) plus a $5 National Park Service entrance fee for adults age 16 and older. Additional shuttle service fees, which are required to launch at Hoover Dam, are determined by the individual outfitters.
Launch Times: 7am, 8am and 9am with a limit of 15 vessels per launch by permit only
Restrictions: Camping is not permitted within the Hoover Dam security zone
