A truly wonderful experience, The Grand Celebration with Black Canyon Rafting allows you to view multiple levels the Grand Canyon as well as the Colorado River. Embark with an unforgettable narrated helicopter tour and see historic landmarks and scenic desert beauty. See sights such as Hoover Dam, Black Canyon, Lake Mead, and the mighty Colorado River from the skies above. Upon entering the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, soar over Hualapai Land and pass by the Skywalk Glass Bridge, the highest man-made structure in the world. As your helicopter descends 4,000 feet to the canyon floor, take in the magnificent beauty of the canyon walls surrounding you. On the bank beside the Colorado River, one can witness first hand the geological history of the rock formations within the West Rim's canyon walls. Experience beautiful views of the amazing Colorado River as it flows along the Black Canyon floor. Upon landing on the canyon floor, time is allocated to walk around and explore ancient Hualapai land. Champagne and a light meal are served under a "Ramada" known as a traditional Hualapai Indian shelter. Enjoy a different scenic flight back to the terminal where your rafting guide will be waiting you. Enjoy the short ride to the base of the Hoover Dam where you will begin your 11 mile rafting journey winding down the Colorado River. The raft heads downstream through spectacular and historic Black Canyon. Formed over millions of years by volcanic activity, the canyon rises nearly 2,000 feet from the river's edge. Continue your rafting trip and stop at a beach for lunch before arriving at Willow Beach Marina.
