My dad and I flew Friday, September 23rd and we had the best time! We’ve previously flown on other helicopter tours, but never one over the ocean . This was a special tour, all thanks to our friendly and knowledgeable pilot who also helped to serve as our tour guide. It was a great way to kick off our long weekend getaway, and definitely helped us to get a lay of the land!

It was my lady’s bday. She absolutely loved it. They have a few more choices of trips available when you get to the airstrip. I highly recommend leaving early. There is one main State-road to get there that is always congested.

This was my and my girlfriend's first time in a helicopter. It was amazing. The guide was great, loved the tour with the doors off. We will be doing this again.

Lots of options for every budget. Really great views of hilton head and neighboring islands. Can't wait to go again next year

Very worth the money we really enjoyed it. The staff and pilot were awesome
