We found Coastal Helicopters on TripAdvisor, and decided to give it a try. Steph and Larry were very nice and accommodating in helping up set up our Sunday Deluxe Tour of the Outer Banks. The helicopter is very nice and looks well maintained. Seating for three (plus the pilot) and it even has A/C. After a short safety briefing we... More

This was great fun. Spectacular views. Best seat in the OBX. We did the 20 minutes rides. It sure feels different than a plane. Saw a WHALE!!! That was cool. She submerged before we got a picture, so we stood motionless for her to come up. Thrilling! She did. Got the picture. The people from Coast Helicopters are great. Make... More

We are so glad we decided to book the helicopter tour. We called the day before and luckily were able to make a reservation. Book in advance, they get real busy. Steph and Larry are great, they really made us feel welcome. We highly recommend this tour. The helicopter was smooth and the views are amazing. We even saw a... More

Had a great 30 minute ride. Larry was awesome at pointing out different sites & the flight was smooth. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area. If the weather was better we would have done a bi-plane ride too, maybe next time!

This is an awesome way to sight see! If you are planning on being in the outer banks you need to call Larry and charge the battery in your camera. If you don't want to take the chance of missing one thing while taking a picture of another Larry can mount a camera to the front of the helicopter and... More

This was our second time using Coastal Helicopters.This year we opted for the 30 minute tour and I'm really glad we splurged. Pilot Larry's knowledge of the various landmarks; Oregon Inlet, Jockey's Ridge, First Flight, Bonner Bridge, Bodie Lighthouse and locations of underwater ships wrecks kept us all engaged. The ride was utterly smooth and the aerial views were absolutely... More

Thank you Larry and Steph for making this trip wonderful. It was my husband's first time flying and he loved it. We will definitely be back next time we visit OBX!

We visit the Outer Banks every year and this was by far, the most AMAZING experience. Seeing the OBX from a different perspective was breath taking. Stephanie and Larry are incredibly kind and we felt like we were flying with old friends. With Larry's flying experience we felt completely safe and at ease. We highly recommend the Go Pro option....

I always plan something special for my girlfriend's birthday and I cam across this while Googling "what to do in Outer Banks, NC". I called and Larry was so nice and very informative. He was honest about choosing which tour to do and I was sold. They do a great job about communicating with you about the weather and if... More

During our OBX stay in August, my friend decided to surprise another friend & I with a helicopter ride. Stephanie & pilot Larry took the time to explain thoroughly the policy & procedures and how very much we will enjoy the flight. I was very anxious & super excited as this was my first helicopter ride. Very grateful pilot Larry... More
