    Great people and tour.

    We had a great time with Orange Beach Helicopter tours. The only down side was that the websight let us book a tour on a day the chopper was going to out of service for maintenance. I was informed of the problem within 24 hours of my booking. They were very helpful in getting me rescheduled for an earlier date than I had originally booked. Our pilot was an excellent tour guide that readily answered questions and pointed out things of interest. Who knew there were so many sharks just off the beach!

    The helicopter ride was interesting, thrilling and beautiful.

    It was really fun seeing familiar sites from a totally different perspective. The pilot was friendly and informative. He pointed out dolphins and a ship wreck. He circled our condo and our motorhome a couple of times. We were up for about a half hour and the experience was definitely worth the cost.

    orange beach visitor

    Good entertainment. Due to high winds the pilot had to fly higher than usual. Pilot had good technical and people skills. Would recommend. Booking was easy and the person assisting the pilot was very pleasant.

    Helicopter ride

    Pilot didn't say a word to me or my son during the whole trip . My son was terrified during the tour . The Pilot didn't do anything to make him feel comfortable. I don't know if all helicopters don't have doors , but my son said he was scared that he was going to fall out of the helicopter :(

    Our first time EVER to ride in Helicopter, we only did the short ride this time but next time gonna go longer. It was not near as scary as I thought it would be. The views are breathtaking. Even got to see dolphins from above playing in the ocean.
