The Activity We Experienced
What we chose to do
We Could See Our Hotel From the Helicopter
How did you discover this activity?
We saw the helicopters flying over us while we were swimming and I kept saying, “hey, let’s do that!” My cousin and I just graduated high school and we were at the beach to celebrate and we decided it was now or never.
When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?
We actually booked the day of! There wasn’t even a long wait, only about 5-10 minutes.
Why did you choose this activity?
I have always wanted to check “fly in a helicopter” off of my bucket list. Plus, the sky and the Gulf were SO blue that day, we just had to!
How did you get to the activity location?
We drove, it was about two minutes from our hotel. We could have walked!
What was your experience with the activity’s staff?
They were so nice and helpful! Our pilot was great and even pointed out where she had seen dolphins earlier in the day. Everyone was so friendly and helpful!
Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?
Our flight was short, but so worthwhile. I am prone to nausea, but experienced absolutely none from takeoff to landing. The pilot was very skilled and I felt completely safe the entire time.
I was able to take my camera and capture some beautiful photos of the coastline. We could even see our hotel and where we’d been swimming earlier! We also saw a school of fish that our pilot pointed out. It was an incredible experience.
Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?
Definitely, I would recommend this to anyone and everyone! It feels safe and secure, not like you’re going to fall or get nauseous or anything, I barely felt like I was in the air at all. The experience is SO worth it! If you can afford it, a longer flight would be even more amazing!
