Soar above Tampa and Davis Island on an exhilarating sightseeing flight, and enjoy aerial views of the city's best sights. Choose your departure time (based on general operating hours) and head to the Peter O. Knight Airport to meet your pilot and board the helicopter for your aerial adventure. As you take off, watch the city fall away and marvel at the striking juxtaposition of the urban landscape and expansive waterways. Hover above downtown Tampa, Bayshore Boulevard, David Island, and the Port of Tampa. Then cut from the city to Hillsborough Bay, where your pilot will dip closer to the water for a chance to spot bottlenose dolphins. Your flight concludes back at the departure point.

We are glad that they had such a wonderful experience. Thanks for your review!
It was very informative, our pilot showed us everything he does as pre and post flight check-ups and explained to us the function of a lot of the main parts. The flight itself was pretty quick though, it lasted less than 10minutes.
This was an Xmas gift for my sweetheart who had never been on a chopper. Our pilot Bobby was outstanding by assuring her safety and making it a great adventure. He was a consumate professional and we highly recommend him.
Our first trip was approiximately 20 minutes. Our family member enjoyed the experience so well, I bought a second. We ungraded on the second trip and was up over an hour. We took off, went south along the bay to Riverview... More
Our first trip was approiximately 20 minutes. Our family member enjoyed the experience so well, I bought a second. We ungraded on the second trip and was up over an hour. We took off, went south along the bay to Riverview, down to the bridge, under the bridge, upon along Ft. Desoto and across St. Petesburg, the views were stellar. I would recommend Old City Helicopter!!! I have purchased a third ticket for an up coming visit from family.
