My husband and I went on the hour tour north to Corolla. If was fantastic!!! Larry is very friendly and knowledgable of the history of the outer banks. We saw dolphins, wild horses, shipwrecks, and the most beautiful views of the outer banks. We will definitely be coming back.

On our first trip to the outer banks with our children, being our 10 year anniversary I decided to surprise my husband... he was completely blown away. We did a 20 min and two 10 min tours so our whole party could do it. Ages 5-62 in our group and that all we have been talking about since. Pictures do... More

Every year we try something we haven't done yet on the obx. This will certainly be a repeat adventure. So friendly and helpful in planning. We were well prepared in what to expect getting out to the helicopter and felt very safe. Make sure your camera is fully charged, such stunning views. I even caught a glimpse of Dolphins! We...

We took the 30 minute helicpoter tour and loved every second of it. Steph and Larry are both great. I highly recommned it. Next time, I want to do the hour long helicopter flight and I really want to try the biplane as well. We will be repeat customers, for sure! I encourage anyone wanting some adventure to book a...

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
