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

I treated my son and his lovely girlfriend to join me in one of my bucket list adventures. Huffman's Helicopters aka Ocean Front Helicopters mesmerized and thrilled us. We are still talking about it! Our handsome pilot, Andrew, trained and gained his helicopter license while working for Cal Fire. Sitting next to this calm, brave, conscientious gentleman made my trip... More

If you are going to Myrtle Beach, don;t miss this attraction. This is unique experience that offers breathtaking aerial views of Myrtle beach on a clear sunny day. They have variety of options starting $20 upto $180 and each and every ride offers value for money you paid. I recommend $40 North tour for families which we did. It takes... More
