Maverick Helicopters Wind Dancer Tour Details
This 4-hour tour is both exciting and convenient. With complimentary transportation from nearby area hotels, getting to the Las Vegas terminal is pretty easy. From there, you’ll embark on an exhilarating helicopter flight that flies over many of the region’s best landmarks and hot spots, including Lake Las Vegas, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, and Fortification Hill – an extinct volcano. Next, you’ll land in the portion of the Canyon that sits in Hualapai Indian Territory for some unique views of this amazing natural wonder. Enjoy a luxurious, light repast of champagne, snacks, and assorted additional beverages as you sit a mere 300 feet above the Colorado River. Your return flight takes a different path to provide maximum sightseeing potential: on this leg of the flight you’ll see the beautiful Bowl of Fire and downtown Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Strip.
Wind Dancer Tour Highlights
Lake Mead: You’ll soar over this gorgeous lake and the National Recreation Area that it’s a part of. This beautiful body of water, created by the Hoover Dam, is a large man-made reservoir that provides entertainment and enjoyment to millions of visitors who love to fish, swim, boat, and more.
Hoover Dam: A marvel of American engineering and design, the Hoover Dam is quite a sight to see for tourists. Seeing it from above only makes its design and function more striking, and you’ll fly low enough to get a good look at the dam’s unique features.
Grand Canyon West: This amazing natural wonder is among the most popular tourist destinations in the entire region (and even the country!) and is a must-visit for travelers in this area. This helicopter tour not only hovers over the Grand Canyon for excellent photo opportunities, it also lands within the Canyon itself to allow you to truly see the perspective of a human in it vastness.
Bowl of Fire: This natural formation of striking red, orange, and pink Aztec sandstone is part of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, but it’s a part that many visitors don’t get to see from within the park itself because it’s located near the edges of the inclusive territory. It’s a beautiful sight that makes for excellent photos!
