Did a sunset flight out of Oceanside, and even though the weather wasn't ideal, we still have a fun, safe, and informative journey. The pilot was nice and professional, and flying up and down the coast watching the sunset in the clouds, watching surfers and beach goers wave to us, and just the overall experience was fantatsic

Fantastic experience for these first-time helicopter passengers! I was super nervous prior to liftoff and thought the heights and motion might be too much. Curt, our pilot, quickly put us at ease and took us on a beautiful trip to La Jolla and back. Can’t wait to go again!

I booked with Waverider for my husband's 50th birthday a ride to Thorton Winery in Temecula. Incredible experience that started off a bit hesitant as my husband saw it was a single engine aircraft and I was afraid he would not board. However, after a short talk with the pilot, my husband felt at ease and a fellow military man he then wanted to sit in the front. The pilot was incredibly knowledgable and skilled. We took a ride out over the ocean before heading to Temecula. We then had an incredible lunch at Thorton Winery followed by a return flight back to Oceanside. He now raves about the experience and how secure he felt in the flight.

I have done a lot in my lifetime. I've hiked some of the roughest terrain, climbed some of the highest mountains and even swam with sharks. I can honestly say my experience in their helicopter tops all that I listed. We booked the 45 minute Waverider Quiver tour. I saw all of the beauty of southern California in this one trip. Even saw some whales swimming around the coast. The thrill of flying in their helicopter was indescribable. We were punctually greeted by Danielle when we arrived at the airport in a snazzy blue golf cart. Then transported to their hanger to meet the pilot and see the aircraft. The pilot (Kurt) was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He instantly made my girlfriend feel comfortable and safe. She even commented on how cute he was. I encourage anyone and everyone to book a flight immediately. Five stars!!!!!!!

This was by far, the best helicopter ride along the coast.
Thank you Waverider and to our wonderful pilot, KIRK! It was my moms 90th birthday and she had a fantastic time!

We had a fantastic time! It was a very smooth flight over a beautiful and interesting area with, Kurt, our very knowledgeable pilot. The sunset flight ended with an incredibly soft landing! We're looking forward to returning for future flights!

We had such a great time. The helicopter was very smooth, the pilot knowledgeable, the skies clear, and lots of people out on the beach. This was a super great way to discover that yes, we really like helicopters. I highly recommend Waverider Helicopter tours.
