What To Expect

Begin with pickup at your hotel in Las Vegas, travel to the heliport to meet the pilot, and board an air-conditioned Eco-Star helicopter. Settle into a comfortable seat with personal headphones—if desired, you may listen to a recorded commentary about the Grand Canyon throughout the flight—then lift off for the flight across the desert. On your way to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, fly above Lake Las Vegas and Lake Mead, then see the Hoover Dam from the air, with perfect aerial views of the recent bypass bridge.

Catch your first glimpse of the Grand Canyon, then dive below the high desert to touch down on a private bluff 3,500 feet (1,067 meters) below the rim, and just 300 feet (90 meters) above the Colorado River.

In the shade of a traditional Ramada shelter, enjoy a Champagne toast and light snacks, chat with the helicopter pilot, or simply enjoy the scenery in an exclusive, uncrowded location. After your time at the bluff, board the helicopter for the flight back to Las Vegas, passing over the Strip on your way to the heliport, where you meet a driver for return transfer to your hotel.

Please note: Per FAA regulations, all passengers 18 years and older are required to show photo ID such as a driver's license or passport at the time of check-in.

This was absolutely magic. Our pilot Cole was superb, very professional and very informative. His seat rotation was well managed and his picnic very enjoyable. The duration of this tour and sights covered were excellent value. We felt in very safe hands with Maverick Helicopters and reassured with the presentation and process management on arrival. Thank you Cole and staff, we commend you all on an excellent tour.

Great experience from taking off, the time going to the Grand Canyon, the time spent at the canyon and the trip back. It was awesome. I have seen the Grand Canyon 4 times. This is by far the best way to experience it. Worth the money.

What an amazing experience! Rich was a great pilot. Smooth and precise... Very important when landing (what seems like) 15ft from another copter. Awesome playlist to set the tone and very informative. From the shuttle pick up to the airport check in, and trip, top notch treatment. Highly recommend.
