The owner/operator was friendly, knowledge, flexible, and professional. He called and discussed the best riding options for my family and my kids absolutely loved it. We took a tour of the harbor and even got to see a part of the rocket that had been retrieved from the ocean. I would highly recommend using Cocoa Beach Helicopters for a great family experience!

We were so excited to get a chance to fit this experience in. Easy booking. Easy, yet thorough safety checks and final details. Our pilot was Vance. He was very learned, being x military. He also was very knowledgable about all the sites. He made it a very fun and informative ride, plus made sure we saw all the sites and wildlife he could. We could sure do it again!

This was my wife and I first helicopter ride. It will definitely not be our last. The ride was smooth and our pilot made the trip enjoyable with his knowledge of the places we viewed. Our trip involved the doors being off. I thought it would be kind of scary but it wasn't. In fact it made the flight that much more enjoyable since we had a full view of everything. Kudos to Cocoa Beach Helicopters. I highly recommend this for anyone visiting the Cocoa Beach area.

Most important, Our pilot was great and the ride was enjoyable!

We chose a short ride ($40 per for 6-9 minutes), upgraded for doors off ($50 per) experience. Felt safe the entire ride.

Booking experience seemed easy. We arrived half an hour early, filled out our waivers. We were told the people before us booked the same package. Went outside to snap pics of takeoff and landing. We were outside in the heat (we're Floridians but summer heat is brutal on a full sun day) for 35ish minutes. Finally went in and asked when they'd be back and were told they double booked and they were actually a 45 minute ride. No one came out to tell us once they figured it out which was shortly after we arrived because the double booked party showed up just a few minutes after us. The first 45 minute party also arrived after us. I realize it was a biz decision to let the first 45 minute people go, but ours would've been a 9 minute max ride and we were already there early. Poor execution and zero compassion for us standing outside with no info about the double booking. No discount offered, no apology. And it made us late for our next scheduled event. Just rude. Left a poor taste in our mouth which is unfortunate.

Bottom line, the ride was very cool!

We were visiting Cocoa Beach, Florida and happened to see the sign of Coco Beach Helicopter tours. We went in and booked our “Flight Adventure Tour” over Cocoa Beach Pier. It’s about 12-14 minutes cost was very reasonable US$69.99/person. They offer different lengths tour but this one was long enough that you see the whole area. Kevin was our Pilot and he was excellent and he explain to us all the buildings & sight seeing places. Unfortunately we didn’t see any whales which sometimes if you get lucky you can see. We also purchase the video but 1 thing that I missed is not taking my cell phone to take video from the top. Worth every penny. I will highly recommend this tour in to do list. The lady at the reception was also very helpful (I forgot her name).

What a wonderful experience! This was my second flight, having been up last summer for the Port to Pier flight. We did the See-It-All tour with Vance as our pilot. Unbelievable flight. We flew up the Banana River to Kennedy Space Center and our flight pattern took us down the runway (from about 500') where the space shuttles landed during that program. We flew over the Indian River to the St. John's River and that was just spectacular. We felt as though we were in a living travel documentary as we wound around the waterways.
We live in the area and were fascinated by seeing familiar things from a whole new perspective. And the flight gave us a bigger appreciation of just how beautiful and varied Florida topography, flora, and fauna are. This is a big thumbs up and a shout out to a very entertaining and thoroughly competent pilot.

We turned up without booking with the hope we could get a flight, we were made very welcome and were airborne within 10 minutes. Full safety briefing, friendly staff and Kevin our pilot was incredible. We flew over and around the Kennedy Space Centre and Port Canaveral, breathtaking view and an incredible experience. Highly recommended.

We did the extended tour which included a flight over the Kennedy Space Center property as well as down the shoreline of Cocoa Beach. Pilot was very informative and also took a few extra minutes to show us some Manatees and Dolphins in the Indian River. Highly recommend this tour.

My second time up over the space coast, my friend's first. Hudson took us up and showed us the sights. Got to see a ray in the ocean, OCISLY, and MS Tree, cruise ships, and did a little fancy maneuvering over the Indian River. Company provided waist pack flotation device for safety. Highly recommend!

Took the 2nd tier helicopter tour with a 4 & 6 yr old. We all had a great experience! They wanted to ride again! Had the microphone headsets & we were all able to talk during flight. Friendly staff & we all felt safe. Pilot Vince did awesome. The staff also got our phone & snapped a few pics of us upon exiting helicopter.
