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! The photo is upside down. I can’t delete it or rotate it. Sorry.

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!
