    Default Laughlin to Havasu on the river

    Planning on doing a trip from Laughlin to Havasu on the river. Never been past Avi before, anyone have any tips or experience they can share with making this trip? Have a 21ft Jet so don’t have the same concerns a prop would but still need to be aware of water levels, gas, and timing.

    Cake trip. When you come out of the channel into Havasu, stay right-center closer to the reeds as it is deeper there. Shallow water left or at least it was a couple of weeks ago. Have fun.

    I believe you can fuel at Avi, Needles Marina and Park Moabi (Pirates Cove). The longest stretch is from Moabi to Havasu through Topock Gorge. It's a fun trip, but i start from Needles. From the Needles bridge to the sandbar is pretty safe water, have to lookout more for morons than rocks.

    A buddy of mine and I are planning the same trip, just the other way around. Havasu to Laughlin. Our plan is to stay the night in Laughlin and head back the next day. Anyone have any tips on where to slip the boat for the night. Thanks for any help.

    overkill,
    This is secret info so don't tell anyone. The inside dock at the riverside is ok for overnighting. It says dock at your own risk, but it's ok. We drive to Laughlin Thursday afternoon, put the boat in and tie it up to the dock. friday morning we just walk down from the room and hop in, avoiding the slap stick action at the Riverside park launch ramp.
    We leave our boat in from Thursday till Monday all summer long, trip after trip.
