What You Can Expect
Then descend into the depths of the Grand Canyon as you fly over the mighty Colorado River, past million-year-old geological rock formations. Make sure to have your camera ready, as around every corner you’ll see cathedral buttresses and pillars with amazing natural vivid colors. After leaving the Grand Canyon, enjoy views of other natural wonders in the wilderness of the rugged Mojave Desert.
Upon landing in Boulder City, take a short drive down to the Colorado River launch area for your river float at the base of the Hoover Dam and the newly constructed bypass bridge. Here you'll be greeted by your friendly guide, who will help you board your comfortable river raft. Float down the river and through the Black Canyon, with high walls that will leave you breathless! Keep your eyes open for desert big horn sheep, osprey and great blue heron in their natural setting.
The raft stops at a secluded beach on the river so you can cool off in the refreshing clear waters. You can also enjoy your picnic box lunch on the beach while taking in the sights and sounds of Black Canyon.
Your trip ends on the Arizona side of the river at Willow Beach. You'll have the chance to shop for souvenirs before returning to your Las Vegas hotel.
Bonus Grand Canyon West Landing:
Tour includes an approximately 30-minute landing at Grand Canyon West Airport with time to explore the Hualapai Indian Gift Shop where you can purchase Grand Canyon and Skywalk souvenirs, jewelry and items crafted by Native American artisans.
Please note: The listed price does not include a $35 per person airport and fuel fee, payable at the time of tour check-in. For travel from January 1, 2014, the fee will increase to $45 per person.
everything from start to finish was excellent. was very well organized, all we had to do was turn up on the day at the agreed pick up time.
i was surprised at how good the rafting was and dennis (the driver of the raft) was funny and knowledgeable and made the trip even more enjoyable.
the helicopter was great with stunning views.
overall i could not fault this trip and would recommend it to any one that has not been to the canyon/ hoover dam before.
We booked our trip wondering if the white water rafting trip wouldnt be better since we had two "teens" with us but it proved to be entertaining enough if not a bit long. Our son especially had a great time spotting the long horn sheep and taking pictures. My daughter got a kick out of straddling the raft and placing her feet in the ice cold water! My husband and I were thrilled with the ability to take lots of pictures without worrying about having to hold on.... EVERYONE, from the driver,the raft guide, and the helicopter pilot were all very knowlegeable and fun!! Would highly recommend this trip for incredible views of the canyon. This was our kids first ride in a helicopter and they loved every minute! The views from the air are definitely different than from a raft!!
