    We had a blast!

    As soon as we walked in to the lobby we were greeted with a beautiful smile and a happy crew. Everyone there was so friendly and helpful. My son had just turned 16 and he wanted to take a helicopter tour over Orange Beach. Booking this trip was so easy and quick. Our pilot James Williams was really knowledgeable about the island and the helicopter. He also served this country in the military which, in my eyes, makes him a hero. It was a great honor to be flown around your beautiful town by a hero of mine. God bless America.

    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.
