We've been waiting 8 days for a seat and they were not able to sell this activity to additional people (or they wanted us to pay the full $700?). We took this very bad because, unless you see Bora Bora from above like in all the postcards, it is just another island with nice water & hotels, that you can... More

Gabby our Pilot was terrific. She made sure that my first experience riding in a helicopter was "the best ever". Bora Bora & Tupai are more beautiful in the air. I highly recommend spending the money for a 1/2 hour trip...such a memorable experience. We took fabulous photos & GoPro videos. Thanks Gabby!!! Indie (Mary) & Christina

It isn't cheap, but it is great, would do it again in a blink. We got picked up from the Four Seasons helipad and had a 15 minute tour of the Island/mountain and lagoon. The experience of helicopter flight in itself is great, but the postcard views of Bora Bora were truely spectacular! The colours of the water are amazing... More

I've seen pictures of the water surrounding Bora Bora and knew that if I ever visited, I would have to take a helicopter tour. While in port on a Windstar Cruise, I booked a helicopter tour to see for myself if the water was as blue as the pictures. I was NOT disappointed. The flight lasted about 15-20 minutes and... More

On our last trip to French Polynesia (Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea, Taha'a, Huahine), my wife Nicole fell in love with the Coral Garden on Taha'a - calling it her favorite place to snorkel. So, for this year's anniversary trip, to Bora Bora, I chartered Tahiti Helicopter for a morning private transfer from the Four Seasons on Bora Bora to Le... More

We flew on September 15th morning. We were picked up at Bora Bora Intercontinental Thalasso´s helipad for a 15 minutes tour (L'essentiel de Bora Bora). Our pilot was Mr. Delpia. The flight was extremely smooth and Bora Bora from the top is spectacular. The highest point of the tour was about 30 meters above the mount Otemanu. The pilot spoke... More

We've been to French Polynesia several times and had never considered the helicopter. We were staying at Le Meridien and noticed the heliport at the reef area at the back side of the property. It couldn't get any more convenient. The hotel activity desk said they take groups of 4, and it would cost more for a private flight with... More

Had a bit of an issue with the company responding to my emails promptly. Willing to Drop $50 a minute I honestly thought they would get back to me faster.But with that aside, everything did get booked before our arrival. Me and my boyfriend were picked up from the hotel lobby and in no time up in the air enjoying... More

Quick review of Tahiti Helicopters: awesome scenery; it's expensive; but by far the best 15-30 minutes you can spend on an excursion in Bora Bora. The colors of the water are unbelievable and you won't regret spending the $$. I only wish the pilot spoke English so we could have gotten some narrative on what we were flying over. So... More

This is absolutely the best thing you can do in Bora Bora. I wouldn't bother booking prior to travelling to Bora Bora. Book directly with Tahiti helicopters either at the airport in Papeete or at the Vaitape harbour in Bora Bora. You will save yourself a fair bot of money vs booking through your hotel. Our hotel quoted us 30%... More
