    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

    Great time

    This was one of the best things i have ever done. My 4 four year, my wife and myself were all able to fly together. My little was scared until we got in the air then she was all smiles. The pilot and entire crew were great. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive helicopter tour.

    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
