We have visited the OBX many times, and would now say our helicopter tour with Larry ranks as the best activity yet. Larry and Steph are extremely friendly and professional and make the whole experience memorable. I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone visiting the Outer Banks.

True customer service! Larry made several phone calls and worked with the ever-changing weather on our flight day. The flight was awesome! There was the perfect mix of information giving and quiet reflecting time. We can't wait to go again on our next trip.

October of 2014 was a great time for an after summer vacation. And Ocracoke island NC was sunny and in the 70s. Perfect conditions to escape the New Jersey fall chill. Really wanting to take in the Outer Banks we booked an hour flight with Costal Helicopters. A quick phone call to a very polite lady set us up for... More

Such a wonderful experience! Larry and Stephanie were very friendly and informative. The flight itself left me speechless... In thirty minutes, I saw several of the top tourist spots in the Outer Banks, as well as beautiful stretches of beach. We even saw dolphins swimming near Jeannette's Pier! My only regret is not doing it sooner. I will definitely be... More

Truly enjoyable, informative and (yes) 'awesome' experience. Both Stephanie and Larry (the pilot) provided great customer service and looked after us from start to finish. My 9 year old wasn't overly enthusiastic when I first suggested it, but said it was the best part of the trip afterwards. Definitely should be part of any trip to the Outer Banks

Our helicopter ride was the best part of our vacation. We took our 4 year old son on a ride for the first time. Larry and Steph made it a wonderful and unforgettable experience. The ride was comfortable and we learned so much about the Outer Banks. Larry was knowledgable about OBX, he was friendly and easy to talk to.... More

I took my 8 year old on his first helicopter flight. The pilot was friendly and engaging. My son and I had a blast. Thank you Coastal! Your staff was great. Don't forget to stop at the aquarium next store. Roanoke island makes for a great day trip with your family.

I really enjoyed our helicopter flight with Coastal, and I know my wife and three-year old son did as well! Truly fantastic: the best way to see the Outer Banks! Both Steph (booking and flight prep) and Larry (pilot) were extremely friendly and a pleasure to deal with. No problem bringing a small child (and I doubt he will forget... More

Steph and Larry are running a great operation. Every aspect of the experience was exceptional. Larry provided great narration during the flight, and happily handled my almost limitless questions. We opted for the video and Steph did a nice job putting together a treasured keepsake. Make the time, enjoy a flight!
