Aboard this West Rim Grand Canyon helicopter tour, you’ll land at the bottom of the canyon and then float between the massive stone walls on a smooth water pontoon boat ride on the Colorado River.

Papillon's Over the Edge Helicopter & Boat with Park Entry is one of our most amazing Grand Canyon experiences! This tour includes a helicopter landing on the floor of Grand Canyon West, which is the only area of the canyon where this can be done. Experience Papillon's remote landing spot on a beautiful bluff overlooking the Colorado River. You can explore the desert scenery while taking the time to photograph the nature surrounding your landing site.

Next, you'll take a short and scenic walk to the bank of the Colorado River for a smooth water pontoon boat ride down the Colorado River. This peaceful river trip offers a magnificent vantage point of the towering and colorful thousand-foot walls rising on either side of you!

After your refreshing journey down this famous river, you'll board another helicopter flight to the West Rim's surface. Once back at the West Rim entrance, passengers will have their choice of several entrance passes, including the Grand Canyon Skywalk, available for purchase to explore all the beauty that Grand Canyon West offers.
