Tour Description

The Grand Celebration with Black Canyon River Raft pairs a helicopter landing at the bottom of the Grand Canyon with a smooth water float trip down the Colorado River in Black Canyon. Guests will depart via a luxurious helicopter to Grand Canyon West. Our exclusive landing site is on a plateau near the river from which one can take spectacular photographs from the canyon floor. Guests will enjoy time to take photos, explore the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and a champagne toast with a light picnic before heading back to our terminal. Upon arriving at our terminal, they will be shuttled to the base of the Hoover Dam to take part in an 11-mile motorized raft trip down the Colorado River through Black Canyon. The raft will dock at a private river beach where passengers can swim and enjoy a meal. Return to Las Vegas via motorcoach.
