The weather was awesome for flying up the coast! We got to see manatees and a hammerhead shark and the beautiful contrast of the waterfront! I will definitely recommend this for great videos and pictures from a Birdseye view!

My significant other and I went on a helicopter ride that traveled along the beach. Friendly staff. Very safety oriented, polite and professional. The pilot flew along the beach to San Destin. It is so beautiful flying over the water. Will do this again!

We took the 6 mile tour and the view was amazing. The staff and pilot were nice and did a nice job. The only reason I gave 4 stars is that we booked through Groupon which stated it was a $140 value for $95. But...More

It was 99.00 it was very much worth it. It could be cheaper or more expensive. It depends on the length of the ride.
