    I took my 7yr old and she loved it and wanted to go again. The lady at the desk was super nice and made sure my daughter understood the rules. We had a pleasant conversions with the pilot as he took us around and he even explained about the sharks and dolphin.

    First Time Is A Charm! THANK YOU!!!

    My daughter had "riding in a helicopter" on her bucket list. She is young and healthy, but she had two emergency surgeries in the last five months and has been in long term rehab for pain and paralysis symptoms. It has taken a while for her to walk well, again. As we were walking on the beach, she saw your helicopter flying by, and she shared her dream. I used your service as a Christmas present. You did not disappoint! From the moment we arrived, our experience was wonderful. We not only enjoyed the ride, we enjoyed the conversations with the staff. You are a class act, and the ride was amazing! Christian was very attentive to us--making sure we had time to get comfortable with the experience and focusing on landmarks that ignited our interest. My daughter is hooked! She loved... read more

    Glad We Did It !!

    Decided on a knee-jerk reaction as we passed by the helicopter pad and saw no wait. Staff and pilot were personable, friendly and professional. And the flight experience and views over the Emerald Coast were off the charts !! Highly recommend.

    Would have given a 5 but it was so fast, we didn't have time to take in the sites. Otherwise, it was amazing and the cost was reasonable.

    Great experience.

    I took my 9 and 11 year old sons on the chopper tour in July. They had a blast. We saw sharks, dolphins, carp, sea turtles and huge schools of fish. My 11 year old now wants to be a pilot when he grows up.
