    Don't ever go to them.

    We were in destin for the labor day weekend and did all our bookings through tripshock. Our trip was awesome except the experience we had at beach helicopter. We called to confirm our appointment (3-5 pm slot was given). The lady on phone told us to come anytime before 7 and she said the wait time is going to be 10-15mins to abt 30 mins depending upon crowd. So made a dinner reservation at 6 and reached there 4.30 expecting to get free by 5.30max. ... read more

    Hi Sonya, We are sorry to hear about your experience and apologize for the inconvenience. Prior to Labor Day, the waits were extensive at times and the tour details do mention that it's first come first serve. Buying online does save you some money with the instant offers, but it's still first come first serve. After Labor Day, the waits do reduce greatly as there are less people in town. Thanks again for your patience and we are sorry for the extended wait.

    Felt rushed- Not worth the money!

    We purchased the longest ride at $160 a person, $320 for two people, paid in advance through tripshock, and chose the afternoon ride. Beach Helicopters does not make appointments, even though you pay in advance! About an hour later, Beach Helicopters called and asked when we were coming because they would be closing early due to helicopter maintenance. We were in Pensacola, and left right before noon to get there in the early afternoon. When we arrived in under an hour after rushing to get there so they wouldn't be closed when we got there, there was no parking available and when we went into the building to ask where we could park, the owner/pilot acted bothered to help us. ... read more
