Want to learn more about our most popular tour?
Serenity’s Sky Dancer Landing and Picnic Tour is our best-selling helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon! In this blog we would like to share with you a little more about this amazing tour. Of course every trip is slightly different, but here are some highlights of what you will experience on this once in a lifetime adventure!
Our tours all depart from Boulder City Airport. This cute little town with a beach city vibe is totally different than Las Vegas. It’s the only city in Nevada where gambling is illegal and boasts some great breweries, antique shops, and farmer’s markets. Learn some interesting facts about the town and its history as you take off on your adventure to the Grand Canyon!
Hoover Dam is one of the eight modern engineering wonders of the world. It not only created Lake Meade, but also produces electricity for Las Vegas and the surrounding area. As you fly over, take in the amazing sight and learn a little more about its history and how it works.
Lake Meade provides 90% of Las Vegas’ drinking water and also provides a lot of fun activities for locals and visitors alike. You can rent paddle boards, jet skis, party boats and more and enjoy the 550 miles of shoreline that this lake has to offer. There are also numerous hiking trails and other fun activities. This is quite a site to see from the air!
The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon, of course, is the star of the show. Seen from the air it is nothing short of breathtaking. Words cannot describe what this part of the tour is like, but believe us when we say this is an opportunity not to be missed. In addition to the awe inspiring views, you will also learn a little about the theories of how the Grand Canyon was formed, the geology of the area, the wildlife, the weather and more, which is almost as fascinating as the area is beautiful!
Serenity’s Grand Canyon Landing Site
Our landing site, nearly 4,000 feet below the rim of the canyon, provides picnic tables with shade to enjoy a yummy picnic lunch and the beautiful scenic overlook. Our landing site is much more private than the other, larger helicopter companies, allowing you to enjoy nature at its finest!

“From the moment the company’s shuttle arrived to our hotel the experience was top notch. Everything about the experience was just awesome. My wife and I have traveled the world and been fortunate enough to do many ‘tours.’ Without question this tour ranks at the top, the company just flat out does it right. Mad Dog offers elements to the tour that NO ONE else could, his charisma, knowledge and pride in what he does coupled with his track record in safety seals the deal. If you are considering this tour, do it, without question. Flat out amazing!” – Chris R
“We did the picnic landing in the Canyon tour. Not to parrot all the other reviews but yeah… first class operation. Everybody from the limo driver to the desk receptionists to the pilot were awesome. Pilot added sooooo much to the flight and we learned a ton about the area. The landing and picnic in the Canyon was truly an experience that most people could not imagine. Vegas has lots to do but this is something to not miss. Well worth the money and time. Highly recommend!!!” – Edward S
“The helicopter tour took us over the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and landed in the Grand Canyon. This excursion was one of the best decisions we’ve made and money well spent. We loved it! The views were not only amazing, but Jim’s company, light-hearted storytelling and knowledge of the area made it a bucket list TO DO! He had us laughing the entire time. We can’t stop raving about our helicopter tour with Jim :)” – Jamey M.
“We enjoyed a fantastic flight to the Grand Canyon with our pilot, Cole. It was our first helicopter ride and the views were breathtaking… from the Nat Geo-like close-ups of the canyon, to flying over wild horses! It’s absolutely an experience not to be missed and Serenity Helicopters were professional, friendly, and overall offer a top-notch service! Highly recommended.” – Amanda R
