Then descend into the depths of the Grand Canyon as you fly over the mighty Colorado River, past million-year-old geological rock formations. Make sure to have your camera ready, as around every corner you’ll see cathedral buttresses and pillars with amazing natural vivid colors. After leaving the Grand Canyon, enjoy views of other natural wonders in the wilderness of the rugged Mojave Desert.
Upon landing in Boulder City, take a short drive down to the Colorado River launch area for your river float at the base of the Hoover Dam and the newly constructed bypass bridge. Here you'll be greeted by your friendly guide, who will help you board your comfortable river raft. Float down the river and through the Black Canyon, with high walls that will leave you breathless! Keep your eyes open for desert big horn sheep, osprey and great blue heron in their natural setting.
The raft stops at a secluded beach on the river so you can cool off in the refreshing clear waters. You can also enjoy your picnic box lunch on the beach while taking in the sights and sounds of Black Canyon.
Your trip ends on the Arizona side of the river at Willow Beach. You'll have the chance to shop for souvenirs before returning to your Las Vegas hotel.

Excellent day trip. The helicopter pilot was brilliant and very informative taking us over Hoover dam and the Grand Canyon. The float boat ride was also excellent. Brian the boat driver was very funny and had us all in stitches. If you are going to do this I would recommend you pack a raincoat. They gave us plastic ponchos but everyone's ripped in the wind so we still got wet, but it was loads of fun.

Do this trip! See the Dam from the base, in a restricted area. Amazing views and great knowledge from the tour guide. Only add on needed is maybe the sky walk to see the Grand Canyon from the edge rather than the helicopter.
