Grand Canyon Discovery Helicopter Tour

Take a journey through the Grand Canyon on an exclusive landing flight departing from Grand Canyon West. Experience spectacular bird's-eye views of lands sacred to the Hualapai Tribe aboard our premier ECO-Star helicopter.

Fly through the canyon and experience the time-forged rock formations and stunning coloration as the Grand Canyon walls surround. Descend and land 3,500 feet below the rim where you will enjoy the mystique and grandeur of the Grand Canyon from our exclusive landing site only 300 feet above the mighty Colorado River.

You will spend approximately 20 minutes enjoying breathtaking views of the canyon so make sure to bring your camera for one-of-a-kind photo opportunities.

Grand Canyon West should not be confused with Grand Canyon National Park (South Rim), as it is located about 3.5 hours away by car. Please note that this experience requires the purchase of a Grand Canyon West general admission ticket (starting at $49 USD) for entry into the park. Maverick's Grand Canyon Discovery flight, departing from Grand Canyon West, offers memories to last a lifetime
