 A pair of boats on the west end of the Colorado River, part of the Grand Canyon Helicopter landing tour

Over the Edge Helicopter and Boat


This Grand Canyon helicopter tour at the West Rim lands between the canyon walls at the bank of the Colorado River, where a pontoon boat ride awaits.
Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters #1 Best Helicopter Tour

The West Rim offers some of the most exciting options for exploring the Grand Canyon, including helicopter landings on the canyon floor! In fact, this is the only area of the canyon where this can be done. We fly thousands of passengers to our own private landing spot on the canyon floor, where passengers will have time to explore the surrounding nature. You'll then enjoy a short and scenic walk to the bank of the Colorado River for a pontoon boat ride down the Colorado River. This peaceful cruise offers sights of the canyon walls rising on either side of you. Afterwards, you'll return to the rim's surface by helicopter. Upon arrival to the West Rim entrance at the surface of the canyon, passengers will have their choice of several entrance passes available for purchase to enter and explore the sights within.
