Full description
Located at the boutique little island airport in downtown Toronto, your experience will start at the foot of Bathurst Street. Enter a tunnel which will take you under Lake Ontario on moving sidewalks, and arrive in less than 2 minutes to this historical island. A short walk on the island by the seawall has breathtaking views of the city skyline. Your camera will already be snapping even before you board the helicopter. There are picnic tables and lovely places to sit and watch the city from this natural outpost. Birdwatchers will be thrilled with the water bird wildlife all year round.

At the west end of the airport hangars, you will find the entrance to the terminal. The two floor atrium is a lovely and comfortable place for your pre-boarding experience. A friendly and easy check-in at the front desk will be followed by a short wait and a pre-flight briefing. Guests will be escorted out of the terminal and to the helipad just a few steps away. The helicopter will touch down and you will board with the assistance of a professional safety crew. Everyone will have their photographs taken before the flight as a souvenir option ready for pick-up after the tour. Once on-board the helicopter, you will meet your pilot. Everyone will wear audio headsets complete with microphones so you can speak to each other on the tour. With clearance from the control tower, you will lift off smoothly into the sky. The tours are safe, smooth and comfortable and suitable for all excitement levels.  

This tour is 15 kilometers in length and lasts about 8 minutes airborne. The tour will make a perfect figure eight pattern over the city and you will see everything – a carefully designed tour route means everyone gets to see the city equally.  At 2,000 feet, you will be as high as the second pod on the CN Tower and the view is incredible. Fly right over the downtown center with sights such as Ripley's Aquariam and the Rogers Center – on a clear day you may even see mist coming off Niagara Falls. When you land, you will be greeted and escorted by the safety crew back to the atrium. You can stay a while longer and enjoy the operations and view from the comfortable couches. Additional photo services are available for purchase such as in-flight goPro video, plus professionally printed 5x7, 8x10 or digital print, as taken when you boarded the aircraft.
