Helicopter Lading in the Grand Canyon

Helicopter/Pontoon Boat Tour

By far one of our best offerings, this helicopter and pontoon boat tour offers you the best of both worlds. The first part of the tour lets you soar through the canyon before landing 4,000 feet below the rim on the banks of the Colorado River. From here, you’ll board a pontoon boat and enjoy a ride on the river between the canyon walls, complete with a fascinating history lesson from our River Guide. This tour is available from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Pontoon Boat Tour on the Colorado River



Bring appropriate clothing for the weather during your tour. Don't bring anything you don't want to get wet or drop in the water; anything dropped in the river will not be retrieved. These boat tours are smooth rides (no whitewater rapids), but there may be some water spray from the raft here and there. And lastly, have fun!
