Overview

Grand Canyon West Rim Helicopter Tour

Experience an exhilarating flight as you ascend out of Las Vegas, over Hoover Dam and across sections of Lake Mead. Enjoy amazing views of Temple Rock, Iceberg Canyon and Fortification Hill, an extinct volcano. Keep an eye open for wildlife along the way as big horn sheep, mountain lions and wild horses roam freely. You will then fly through the Grand Canyon to descend and land 3,500 feet below the rim on Hualapai Indian territory and Maverick’s private landing area. Champagne, beverages and a light snack will be served some 300 feet above the mighty Colorado River. While flying back through the Grand Canyon, you will observe the stunning red rock formations of the Bowl of Fire and Wild Pinto Wash. Conclude your adventure with a breathtaking flight over the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas. This excursion lasts approximately 4 hours (hotel to hotel).

If you want to add some extra excitement, consider choosing the Sunset Tour. This outing offers an extended landing time inside the Grand Canyon and returns at sunset just as the bright lights of Las Vegas glitter to life. This excursion lasts approximately 4.5 hours (hotel to hotel).

Unforgettable Day

We feel extremely lucky to have had such an amazing experience flying to the Grand Canyon. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel by our friendly and knowledgeable driver Fernando, through the check-in and safety briefing at the base and most importantly the during flight, the service was first class. I would like to make a special mention to Riley Ballard our pilot for the day who was superb! Great pilot, entertaining and very knowledgeable throughout the whole tour. Riley you’re a ROCKSTAR!! This day was a special day as I had the opportunity to propose to my girlfriend at the bottom of the Grand Canyon with champagne, she said “YES”! All of this would not have been possible without you all. Thanks for making it an unforgettable day.

Best Time Ever

My wife and I went on the Wind Dancer flight this past Monday as a present for my wife’s 50th birthday and let me tell you, she and I had the best time ever. This may have very well been the coolest thing I ever did. She was afraid she would be nervous but not once did she get nervous. Our Pilot Jason was absolutely awesome and he looked to be having as much fun as us and that is really cool. Thank you very much for making my experience and my wife’s birthday a great time!
