The helicopter tours are one of the best ways to experience the Cape Peninsula like you have never seen it before. The pilots are very professional and are very good at giving the guest the best of their knowledge and flying skills. I would highly rate these tours as an excellent way to see what the birds and some of... More

Instead of making the 2,5 he one-way drive between Cape Town and Gansbaai (SA's Great White Shark Cage-diving capital) by road, we were whisked there by helicopter in a mere 40mins! The very professional pilot pointed out whales to us from the air & did a splendid job of flying us there and back. The Bell Jetranger 206 was in... More

We had the opurtunity to fly to Cape Point where we then landed, our group was then shuttled for lunch that was delisous. On our return we were welcomed by our pilot. Our return flight was even better as we flew towards Constantia, with one of the best views of Table Mountain and then landed back at the helicopter base.... More

We booked the day before for a 9am flight and then were dissapointed to wake up to thick fog, however we were told to come back after lunch to see if it had cleared. Luckily it had! We did the 12-15 minute flight and it was amazing to see Table Mountain, Lions Head and the stunning beaches from the sky.... More
