The whole process was great! Larry is not only a great pilot, but a guide too. He explained a lot of the history of the area to us. We flew in the helicopter this time around, next summer it's the bi-plane!

Larry and Steph were so friendly and professional from the minute I spoke to them. Planning a birthday surprise for my boyfriend Kenny took a lot of time and energy. They made it easy and delivered everything they promised. The DVD is worth the extra charge. It is lifetime keepsake we enjoy watching and sharing am with our friends. Larry... More

My wife and I were looking for something different to do in the Outer Banks. We chose to do the helicopter tour. Larry and his wife could not have been more friendly upon our arrival. It was our first helicopter ride and Larry was a great pilot and guide commenting on many points of interest on the Islands. The view... More

Larry and Steph could not have been more friendly and helpful. A helicopter ride was the last thing on my bucket list. Larry is an excellent pilot and tour guide. The outerbands is beautiful and to see it by air was awesome. I had a wonderful time and would like to take my grandchildren on my next visit.

Highly recommended for those that love OBX and want to see the fragile ecosystem from a "macro" view. We went two hours - great for me but 30 minutes longer than family preferred. Very organized, friendly and safe!

I booked it because i was apprehensive about this trip to the outer banks (long travel from San Francisco, family reunion w cousins my daughter had never met) and I wanted to do something that would make the...

We have been going to the Outer Banks for years and it has aways been my place of peace. I had always wanted to the Outer Banks from the air and this was the year. I made the trip into a two day adventure. First day with two of my sons from Manteo to the Virginia state line traveling the... More

This was our first helicopter ride and totally worth it! This company was recommended to us by a friend who booked them last fall. My son and husband and I loved the experience, and the 30 minute tour was great. We saw points of interest along the coast, shipwrecks, and lots of dolphins. We felt very safe and would highly...

My wife and I opted for the one hour helicopter ride, even though it was really outside of our budget. Having never been on a helicopter, we couldn't imagine we would be totally satisfied with one of the shorter options. It was a great decision! The ride was nothing short of amazing. Though it seems like it should feel a... More
