    Beach Helicopter Rides

    Helicopter ride was perfect. We have done it once before and the pilot was just as informative this time. We did the 13 mile ride and when we reached the jeti's we saw about 50-60 nerf sharks. Will definitely ride with beach helicopters when we return to Destin.

    This helicopter ride for myself and my husband was a grand experience. It was such an exciting moment to be in there and look out over the beaches and to feel the wind in my hair. The customer service from these individuals was personal and caring. They took the time to explain and to call within the wait period. If you've never gone on a helicopter ride, this is the company and you won't regret it.

    Too quick

    If you have never been in a helicopter, it's fun and worth it. But for the flying over the beach experience, definitely not worth my money. We did the 13 mile trip and it was maybe 5-7 minutes or so. Way too quick and disappointing
