What a wonderful experience. Kurt was amazing pilot and host for our tour. Easy booking process online and the views were outstanding at sunset. Worth every penny. Definitely would recommend him for anyone looking to experience the beauty of the coast from a different perspective.

I was a bit hesitant about climbing into a small helicopter, but it was an incredible experience! Very comfortable, able to see for miles in all directions, went over the beach as well as inland. Proprietors are wonderful, accommodating people. Highly recommend!
