Full description
On this VIP tour you'll soar over the island of Manhattan in a helicopter like a celebrity and travel in luxury, passing some of New York City’s most breathtaking sights. You’ll cruise over Battery Park and to the Bronx, and be amazed at the views from this height!

Your 30-minute helicopter ride, with heliport fees included, starts around Battery Park, and continues over the labyrinth of streets in the Wall Street area. You’ll fly over Governor's Island as well. Make sure to keep an eye out for the recently renovated public art that has been installed on this once private island!

Then, she rises in the distance – the Statue of Liberty! You’ll come face-to-face with this iconic monument and your highly trained pilot will give you a view of the Statue that you’ve never seen before.

The Grand Island Tour is the perfect choice if you’re looking for a unique perspective on the Big Apple. You’ll cruise over all 5 boroughs, past epic bridges, towering skyscrapers, and even the amusement park at Coney Island before safely returning to the heliport.

Flight Path: Your 30-minute flight departs the Downtown Heliport and flies past Governor’s Island, the Statue of Liberty and down to the Verazzano Narrows Bridge over the Upper New York Bay. Then the flight heads north  for views of Ellis Island as you continue up the Hudson River for views of Madison Square Garden and the Intrepid Air and Space Museum and Central Park, Harlem before flying over the George Washington Bridge and Washington Heights before turning around for your return flight to the heliport.
