    Excellent Experience

    This was the first helicopter ride for my wife and I. From the moment we arrived on site, we were treated graciously. The beautiful young lady was very nice and gave very clear instructions. Our pilot was quite friendly and gave great information about the flight. He even pointed out sea life in the Gulf. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. We gave high reviews the the patrons waiting for their turn. We will do this again soon.

    Helicopter ride

    It was so easy to book. I called the 1-800 number to book. They took my info over the phone and I just showed up to the site. The pilot was very friendly and informative. Best part of my orange beach vacation.

    Pensacola Helicopter Tour

    This was my first ride in a helicopter and I have to say it was a good experience! My sister and I both went, there can be a total of 3 passengers. We did the 15 minute tour for about $80 a person, so it was a bit pricey but I think it was worth it being my first time. I wouldn't go again, it's more of a one time thing. The view was real nice as it was off the coast and we even saw dolphins. You can ask to remove the doors which I think makes the experience more fun. If it's a nice sunny day and don't have any plans I definitely recommend taking a helicopter tour!

    Hi, The flight was very fun and entertaining. The only negative aspect was that we had to wait for about an hour for the helicopter to arrive at the airport. Otherwise everything was fine. The pilot, Zack and his assistant were great.
