What a fantastic experience!!! We combined a return trip to Norfolk Airport with a flyover of our vacation rental in Carolla,with our entire crew out on the beach. Larry and his wife were accomodating in every way and all involved had a wonderful time. This is our second experience with Coastal Helicopters and both have been wonderful fun.

I have been going to the Outer Banks for over 20 years. The past visit was different! I actually got to see the island by air! My husband gave me a gift certificate for a helicopter ride and I took my two sons. (husband didn't want to go!) We have never had so much fun together. It was absolutely awesome.... More

Thanks so much for the kind words! We love hearing from folks who fly with us, and appreciate you taking the time for a review. A note about fear of heights....your helicopter hostess, Stephanie, happens to be very afraid of heights but will fly in the helicopter and biplane at every opportunity! There's something so special about what you're seeing... More

My kids, 2 and 4, went on the 10 minute ride and loved every second. Best part of our vacation was choosing this tour! Worth every penny! Extremely friendly as well!

We have visited the Outer Banks for many years but took a helicopter tour for the first time to celebrate my husband's birthday. The tour started in Manteo and took us all the way to Ocracoke, with views of the Bodie Island, Hatteras and Ocracoke lighthouses; sea life; nature preserves and the different towns. Larry (our pilot) was awesome -... More

From the very first phone call I knew we were in good hands! Both Stephanie and Larry are knowledgable, friendly and professional! They do everything in their power to accommodate everything you would like to see on your flight! My husband and I took a one hour flight where we saw, Dolphins, wild horses, ship wrecks, and the beautiful shore... More

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...
