This was the perfect way to celebrate a birthday! Captain Ric was simply amazing as we flew from Huntington Pier to San Clemente Pier. The flight was thrilling, Ric kept us informed and amused and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. His knowledge of the coastal sights is most impressive and we learned more than we could ever do from land. By the way, if you have any trepidation about helicopter flying, don’t. Ric is a superb pilot and will provide the best ride you will ever have.

A friend from Montreal was here for a week's vacation so I thought a helicopter ride down the coast would be cool. Well, it was more than cool. The scenery was amazing, our pilot Dave gave us an interesting narrative of all we were seeing - we were like kids in a candy store. If you want to treat yourself or someone else to something very special, I cannot recommend anything better than this.

I was truly amazed with OC Helicopters staff. Rick & Patti were not only extremely knowledgeable but so nice. As soon as we walked in I felt very comfortable and welcomed by Max (cutest pilot dog). Rick really took the experience to the next level with all of the information that was provided during the tour. It was the best surprise adventure ever. Thank you again!!

I took the Laguna Beach Tour with friends to celebrate my 65th birthday. Patti went out of her way to accommodate us. The flight was beautiful, and Rick, our pilot, told us about everything that we were seeing. One of the most wonderful parts was seeing two schools of dolphins.

Ric is beyond amazing. I first did a tour with him along the coast and it was amazing. He has since come through and done charters for my company. He managed to get a charter pulled together at the last minute and earned rave reviews from my boss who now wants to use OC Helicopters for all our charter needs. High compliment indeed. He really is the best and I can't recommend him and his company enough.

Departing in an express fashion from Santa Ana (SNA) John Wayne Airport; no wait, no customs, no airport security lines.

Like many of the elite helicopter tour guests that have enjoyed this experience; it's not only a fun thing to do, you're safe in the hands of a very professional and experienced Veteran helicopter pilot.

It's an adventure tour, an attraction, a history lesson and all around one of the most unique tours in Orange County.

Witness Orange County Points of Interest from the best sightseeing tours perspective - in the air!

On a clear day you could see Los Angeles, Hollywood, Long Beach, different islands and more. You'll fly over, near or at least see points of interest such as South Coast Plaza, Irvine Spectrum, Mission San Juan Capistrano, Fashion Island, Crystal Cove, Laguna Beach and more. All in one adventure helicopter tour!

If you're in Orange County and looking for attractions, activities, and fun things to do - this is one of the best ways to discover Orange County or visit California.

Our trip was wonderful & tickets were reasonably priced.

Make the time to do this at least once and you will more than likely come back again as we will!

Thank you Orange County Helicopters, Ric and Patti for making this a great birthday surprise!

Fantastic first helicopter ride in SoCal today with OC Helicopters. Rick is an experienced pilot, easy to talk to, and knows his territory. Patti is a sweetheart, very professional and has a great sense of humor. Most importantly, Max is the star of the show. Try them out and enjoy the ride!

We were looking for something different to do while visiting Huntington beach. We found it and we loved it. Rick took us on a Helo trip we will never forget. From start to finish our experience was handled with class. Toured the coast line with the the best tour guide I believe possible. Flew inland to a little winery and did some tastings along with lunch on the covered patio. Then across the mountains back to the airport. Do not miss this experience.....
