Booked at the Waterside. Being on my own was fortunate to find 2 others to go on the 15 minute flight for 880 rand [£50]. The views are tremendous and it was a very clear day. Well worth the cost and recommended as a must do in Cape Town.

We do offer single seat flights at CTH, you will join a none exclusive flight, but you could also be fortunate to make some new friends in the sky. Thanks for flying with us Keith. More

This was No 1 on my bucket list and didn't disappoint. The sky was clear and blue and the 1 hour trip in a Bell 206 Jetranger was fantastic. We saw everything - a clear uninterrupted view of Table Mountain from all angles, Cape Point, Llandudno, Scarborough, Haut Bay, Simon's Town etc. It was all over far too soon so... More

This was a special treat for hubby's birthday, we ( family of 4) joined him in a lifetime experience of viewing the sites in and around the two oceans from a birds eye view of a Bell helicopter. Wow what an awesome experience. The day was perfect, the view stupendous, our pilot could not be faulted and the ground staff... More

Just great, do the full Cape Point trip and enjoy the part where the chopper goes near the water at full speed, awesome! Loved this trip, you get a different perspective of one of the finest views in the world, pricey but comparable to other helicopter trips I've done in the US Thanks guys, great experience

We just did the small "hopper" tour which was Iike 13-15 minutes in the air. We went down the coast to the 12 apostels did a turn and had a quick look over Cape Town's city bowl. I could have spent the whole day in that helicopter. It was so awesome. The 15 minutes are not that long but they... More
