This see-through kayak is a must-do experience for anyone who loves water activities. At Trip Jaunt, we love to surf and SUP (stand up paddleboard) and do it as often as possible. The team has seen clear paddleboards in cottage country but hasn’t tried it as yet.
We recently learned that there is an incredible see-through kayak experience in Arizona. We are adding it to our list when we can travel to the US again. Check it out!

A half-day, four-mile / 6.4-kilometre excursion, the Emerald Tour starts and ends at the easily-accessible Willow Beach. Highlights along this route include paddling up the great Colorado River, refreshing dips in the crystal clear river water, hiking through historical ruins, floating in the bright jade waters of Emerald Cave, and relaxing on a scenic beach to enjoy your gourmet picnic lunch. Bask in the natural beauty of the Black Canyon as you float back down river and spot the diverse desert wildlife, while your guides share the awe-inspiring history behind the creation of the great Hoover Dam.
