We had a special case with their Family of 4 deal. They accommodated us and it worked out great. We did the one a step above the shark tour - run to the pass. We saw a lot of sharks, turtles, and stingrays. The ride was comfortable and we flew at about 500 feet. We could easily see differ t sea life and the pilot did circle around when we thought we saw a single shark. Very nice tour. Kids loved it.

My brother and I wanted to take a ride and I said I’d pay. So after I pay and we are waiting outside with other people to get on a helicopter, we get asked if a kid can ride with us since he’s a single rider. I felt put on the spot and like I had to say yes. It wouldn’t have been a big deal but the kid talked so much and the pilot just catered to him which is not what I paid for. Add to make it better, the pilot refers to me as the mom. I don’t think I’m old enough to be the kid’s mom- but I guess that’s a matter of opinion. Either way I didn’t enjoy it. I know this operation is about money and they want as many people on a ride as possible - but next time do the people you ask the courtesy of asking them in private. I couldn’t tell if the people we were waiting with were in the kid’s party and I felt like I didn’t have a choice and it ruined my $200+ experience. I didn’t enjoy it and won’t be back.

Arrived at Panhandle Helicopter and able to book Helicopter Ride at short notice (i.e. in the Sky within 15 minutes). Would like to thank Sadie who helped us into the Helicopter and Chynna (Pilot) for making the sightseeing so special and informative. The Robinson R44 Helicopter was comfortable with unhindered views and I would like to have stayed in the Sky longer. Greg met us on our return and I rate this activity a must when in Panama City. Availability 10AM - Sunset, 7 Days a Week (Weather Permitting) and minimum 2 people required and maximum 3 people.

Our pilot was awesome. She was very friendly and informative. We did the short ride which was very short. We planned on doing the shark ride but they were honest and said they weren't seeing any due to rough waters kicking up debris. I would recommend this place.

Now for the first time going on a helicopter tour, I was kind of expecting to see like some Megalodon or something, and I actually didn't, but the service was amazing and for how windy it was at the time... it was a lot less bumpy than I thought it would be. Pilot was very nice and answered all my questions!
