If you come to Bora Bora, you have to take a helicopter tour to fully appreciate the island's beauty. There is simply no other way to see a lot of the landscape. Tahiti Helicopters picked us up at the helipad at our Four Seasons Resort; from there we were taken around the lagoon, then out to a heart-shaped island/atoll, Tupai.... More

I always seek out the local Heli operation when on vacation. Its the most expensive helicopter I've ever been in but everything in Tahiti is costly so its par for the course. Nice helicopter, great views, and would highly recommend it! To those who want to take a ride for only 2 people, you'll need to buy the additional seats... More

Of course the best way to see Bora Bora is from the air... and Tahiti Helicopters is an excellent way to make that happen. We stayed at the Hilton and after a short shuttle boat to the main island where the landing pad was, the crew from Tahiti Helicopters were there waiting with a smile and a nice clean air... More

If your going to go all the way to Bora Bora might as well see it the best way possible. The Helicopter ride was absolutely stunning and magical. Best views you can possibly get of Bora Bora!

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
