Good safety briefing, friendly staff and good price! We had a perfect day with blue skies and no wind. Amazing views of the coastline and 12 apostles. My friend even got to steer for a bit :) thanks Vic

The best thing we liked was the professionalism. This is about 1-1.5 hours drive before 12 apostles if you are travelling from Melbourne, hence the flight duration is ~45 minutes. This is long enough to overcome the fear of flight in a small craft with...More

Brendon our pilot showed us a wonderful way to see Apollo Bay and The Apostles via the helicopter. A great 45 min flight. It is not cheap but something you probably wont do again. $950 for 2 adults.
