See the Grand Canyon from the top and the bottom with this incredible tour that lets you explore from sky and water. Take flight on a helicopter ride over the West Rim and land on the Canyon floor. Opt to explore by foot or take off on a 15-minute boat ride on the iconic Colorado River. All fees, shuttles and transportation are included in this tour, which is guaranteed to be a memorable part of any Grand Canyon experience.
What to Expect
This exciting helicopter adventure will give you a variety of scenic views Grand Canyon West has to offer.

After you arrive at Grand Canyon West (not included), make your way to the airport terminal for a magnificent flight to the floor of the Grand Canyon in a state-of-the-art helicopter. You will descend 4,000 feet below the canyon rim on this 5-7 minute flight. On the bank beside the Colorado River, you can witness first hand the geological history of the rock formations within the West Rim masterpiece. Enjoy approximately 20 minutes on the floor before boarding the helicopter. Leave the canyon floor as you ascend with the helicopter and view the canyon walls rise before you.

Included in this package is admission to the Grand Canyon West Rim which grants you access to the shuttle bus which will transport you between the terminal, Eagle Point (home of the Skywalk) and Guano Point.

There are a number of different upgrade options you can select from:

Helicopter Tour with Boat:
In addition to your helicopter flight to the canyon floor, enjoy a 15-minute pontoon boat ride on the mighty Colorado River. This smooth-water cruise will give you a great understanding of the power of Mother Nature as the walls of the canyon tower above you.

Helicopter Tour with Boat and Meal:
Enjoy the best of everything by combining the helicopter tour, a boat ride on the Colorado River and a meal at one of the lookout points.
