Helicopter & Pontoon Tours



Experience the Grand Canyon from a whole new level when you take flight in a helicopter and float in a pontoon. Stunning tours above the rim of the Grand Canyon lasting 12-15 minute and 20-minutes offer spectacular aerial views of the area from a helicopter.

You can explore even more of the Grand Canyon from above and below the rim with the Grand Canyon Discovery tour. You’ll fly 3,500 feet down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon where you’ll disembark for a seat on a pontoon boat. For the next 15 minutes, you will enjoy a smooth ride on the Colorado River marvelling at the amazing beauty surrounding you. Then hop back in for your 3,500-foot ascent to the top of the rim.
