What an amazing first helicopter ride! My husband flies a bunch and I agreed to go as a treat for him. I thought I would be nervous but Tim, Brad and Brian made me feel very comfortable! Yup, it's expensive but worth it and frankly flights are more expensive in Boston! Amazing thanks guys!

Took the entire family of five on a short helicopter ride and had a great time. For most of the family it was their first. We did the 7-8 mile Boardwalk tour. Approx. $40 a person. They charge by the mileage (which is the way all of the companies do it there) hence the 7-8 mile tour. Lasted a total... More

My hubby and daughter rated this activity at the top of they're list of things to do at Myrtle Beach! I left the fun for them but it looked and sounded like they had a ball!

Fun and affordable activity! The staff is very helpful and informative. You can definitely tell safety is top priority here. I felt very safe the entire time.

When I show up with my family and know exactly which flight I want to take, do not have your sales girl pretend she didn't hear it by attempting to upsell me to a pricier flight. Also, pay the guys who transport your customers to and from the helicopter a wage. It was tacky of them to hit me up... More

$20 per person for a 5 minute flight - goes fast, but worth it, as most folks will never get up in a helicopter. The pilot was great, service was great, our 6 year old granddaughter was totally awestruck by the adventure. Worth it!

This company's billboards advertising $20 helicopter rides pulled us in, then we found out that the $20 flight appeared to only go to the beach near Springmaid Pier and back, perhaps a 2 minute flight. Other options included $49, $79 and perhaps $99 per person options that took you increasingly further distances to the north and back. We chose the... More

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
