Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters introduces four brand-new tours, making it easier than ever for guests to have an unforgettable experience of the world-famous Hoover Dam at an exceptional value.
With a new heliport located next to the Hoover Dam Lodge Hotel & Casino on U.S. 93, Papillon now flies guests closer to the dam than any other tour operator and offer breathtaking views of not only the dam, but also Lake Mead and the rugged, volcanic terrain of Black Canyon.
Built to tame the once-wild running Colorado River, Hoover Dam continues to be an international attraction drawing more than 1 million visitors each year.
From the Black Canyon side of the dam, the massive concrete structure rises 726 feet (221 meters) from the river below. 
Flights can be booked the same day either by making the reservation in person at the Hoover Dam heliport oronline.
