Emerald Cave on Colorado River -

Thanks to the remarkable power of science and nature working together, this beautiful spot lives up to its name with photogenic emerald green waters on sunny days. The emerald hue doesn’t come from algae in the water, it occurs as a result of the sun’s reflection off of the surrounding cavern’s yellow-brownish walls and the blue of the sky combining to create a stunning emerald green appearance.

Rated 4.94 out of 5 from 844 reviews.

    We had so much fun! The river is absolutely stunning and we even saw some wildlife. Benjamin was our tour guide and he did an amazing job! He is super funny and very knowledgeable about the river and the history of the area. He was very patient with us being a little slow in the kayaks. We had an amazing time and would definitely do it again!

    This was so worth it! It was a 5 hour kayaking, but didn't feel like it because Alan was very personable. He had a great sense of humor and made the tour even more enjoyable! His energy was welcoming and you could tell he loves what he does and enjoys it!

    This was a great experience! Our guide was very knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable the whole time. I would definitely recommend this for anyone trying to see nature and experience something outside of the city.
