Jeff and Jen are great! My husband, 7 year old son and I had a wonderful experience we can all cross this off our bucket list. The weather was nice a bit chilly 36 degrees but the helicopter is heated and comfortable. The ride was so smooth and Jeff was pointing out different points of interest to us which is... More

This was the frosting on top of the cake for surprise anniversary getaway for my wife and myself. The rates were very reasonable and the staff very accommodating. This was an outstanding adventure that we will not forget for years to come. The weather was beautiful.

What a breathtaking experience! You get to see, just for a moment, what birds see each day. Staff was friendly and informative. The pilot was knowledgeable and even though he must have dozens of tours daily, he made our tour so special! The helicopter was tiny but the ride was very smooth! My husband has a fear of heights and... More

It was my first time ever in a helicopter and what an amazing time! My husband surprised me with the 45 minute Lighthouse Tour. What a great way to tour the entire island! Highly recommended!

Just one word: Perfect !!!!!!!!!! Best way to view Newport, and well worth the money. Pity this tour does not show under Newport, as this is where it flies. I do suggest owner to try to show under Newport in stead.

It was exhilarating and beautiful! The helicopter was new and clean and our pilot was great! He took us from the navy base out over the mansions and ocean drive and the beaches. We would definitely do it again!

We booked an inexpensive short tour of Aquidneck Island through Groupon and had a blast. The trip, which took about 13 minutes, covered from mid-island west across the Navy base, then south to the city of Newport and the Pell Bridge, waterfront mansions, beaches and back up the central valley to the airport. The helicopter holds up to three passengers.... More

Neat experience. A little expensive if you choose the longer rides. Check weather because if foggy/stormy, ride will be canceled or route changed.
