Winter River Tours
The winter season is ideal for travelers who are bothered by the hot, humid heat of the summer months and who don't mind brisk air as they raft down the Colorado River. Average daily temperatures can range from 60 to 70 degrees, so it's wise to dress in layers for the trip.
Spring Hoover Dam Experiences
Spring is a popular time for booking Hoover Dam raft tours because the weather is neither too hot nor too chilly. Temperatures range from 70 to 85 degrees, and the humidity levels are typically lower than during the summer months.
Summer Raft Tours
Summer in the desert can be hot, with temperatures rising higher than 100 degrees during the peak of the day. This is a great time to book a Hoover Dam raft tour, because the sun is nearly always shining and there's rarely any rain. Travelers need to be sure to pack their sunscreen, and wear light, cool clothing.
Fall River Adventures
The fall season is often an extension of summer, with temperatures hovering between 80 and 90 degrees. There's little precipitation in the fall, which makes for consistently wonderful raft excursions every day.
