Our guide to Skywalk Getaway with Helicopter and Boat
This canyon experience brings together three of the most popular activities available at Grand Canyon West; a helicopter flight, a picturesque cruise and a walk across the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
After being collected in Vegas and driven to a state-of-the-art terminal Boulder City (30-60 minutes from Vegas), you will soon be soaring majestically over stunning terrain in a modern chopper!
Spot Lake Mead, the Hoover Dam, Guano Point, Eagle Point and more before making an incredible 4,000 foot descent into the depths of the mighty Canyon itself.
Here, a waiting pontoon boat will take you out on the Colorado River for a smooth water float trip. Be sure to look up to take in the awe-inspiring views.
Next, reboard the helicopter for a thrilling ascent to the rim of Grand Canyon West where you'll be transported by shuttle to the world famous Skywalk for a VIP skip-the-line experience.
This amazing glass walkway allows you to walk out over the Canyon rim and experience birds-eye views to the Colorado River 4000 feet below your feet.
