Our pilot's name was Tony...he was very entertaining, informative and made the tour really fun! We flew 8 miles. Most can say they have ridden an airplane, but not a lot can say they sat in the front seat of a helicopter and flew in one! My husband, my daughter and myself had an awesome time and will definitely do... More

This was on my bucket list and loved this short 5 minute ride over the ocean. I also thought for that short ride the price was not too bad. They do have a number of other packages that are longer rides that cost more. Loved this!

I just can't rave enough about how great this experience was. From the booking if the flight and the staff, to the pilot and his skill and knowledge. We opted to fly to Murrells Inlet. We saw large schools of fish and numerous birds. The weather was excellent for our flight. Our pilot Marcus was very personable and wealth of... More

All week we made plans to do this and we were thrilled! A very smooth ride and lots of fun. We were lucky to go over our hotel so that was a thrill! This is the only ride over the beach so choose this one. Each helicopter seats 3 and I got to sit up front so I got lots... More

We saw what it seemed like a Lamborghini so we turned around to check-it out. Came to find out, it is a "fake" one, it's actually a dress-up Pontiac. Regardless, the staff was friendly and the price was competitive at the time of our stop, so we ended up riding in two separate choppers. Each chopper can only accommodate total... More

This is a good helicopter flight out at the Myrtle Beach International Airport. The parking lot is a little tight and tou have to watch for kids running across. The sales building is directly across the parking lot from the boarding gate. Tour flight begins just outside the entrance to the building where an employee explains the various flights, takes...

Hubby and I did the $20 intro ride and it was well worth the money. For the both of us after taxes (and we added on a $7 4x6 souvenir picture in front of the helicopter) it was about $55 altogether. Yeah the ride is short (a 2mile loop over the beach) but the view and feeling is so amazing!!... More

After seeing the advertisements for helicopter rides for 20.00, we expected some kind of "reel in"! We decided to swing for 40.00 for the "6 to 8" minute ride they offered. Our family on the ground timed us from the time we boarded the helicopter - not lift off- till we touched back down was 4:50 seconds.

We're sorry to hear about your negative experience, but for the tour you took (North Beach Tour - $39.99) you were in the air for the appropriate amount of time. The North Beach Tour is 7-8 miles. Maybe you mistook the miles for minutes? We never advertise the flight time of our tours because things like headwinds, tailwinds & air... More

We stopped in early in the morning ( as soon as they opened) to book a helicopter tour. The cloud cover was too low for visibility, but they took our name and number and promised to call us as soon as conditions improved. We left to go visit some other attractions while we waited. After waiting a couple of hours,... More
