We wouldn't categorize Coastal Helicopters as a business, even thought it is owned and operated by exceptionally professional people, it seems more a labor of love by Stephanie and Larry and Tiffany. We had visited their business by accident one day looking for a regatta that was supposedly being launched by the Manteo Airport a couple of years ago. Although... More

WONDERFUL - they are simply the best and I highly recommend this tour. They have great knowledge of the area and show you the ship wrecks, schools of fish and tell the history of the towns. Great memorable trip - we'll be back!

This experience had to have been the most memorable and enjoyable from my family's Outer Banks Vacation summer of 2015. Everything from booking the reservation to finishing the tour, Larry and the staff at Coastal Helicopters were professional and courteous to our group. Larry is an excellent pilot and puts safety first and foremost. We were so thrilled to see... More

We had a wonderful time! Larry is an excellent pilot. One of the smoothest helicopter rides that I have ever taken. He is also a great tour guide and was really good with the kids. Landmarks, shipwrecks, and points of interest were all pointed out. Steph, who escorted us out to the helicoptor, was very personable and informative. We couldn't... More

I am so glad i was able to experience this worth my boys. My oldest wants to be a pilot and the smile on his face made my day. The price was reasonable, facilities were clean. Don't forget to check out their mini museum.

Awesome. This will be an annual event. First time in a helicopter, but what a way to see the coast. Great host and very informative, not to mention an excellent pilot. Thanks. Will see you again.

The only downside to this amazing helicopter ride is we should have booked a longer ride & next time we will! Absolutely gorgeous views & Larry, the pilot is awesome & Stephanie is a sweetheart. The ride is very comfortable, air conditioned & Larry points out shipwrecks, oceanlife & even good places to eat on shore. Well worth the cost... More

This was an awesome helicopter ride, and the highlight of our trip. Larry, the pilot, was friendly, informative and easygoing. Stephanie helped me plan this gift for my husband as my wedding gift to him. She was very good about being flexible and making it all work in our schedule. They took pictures for us, and made a go-pro video... More

Cannot say enough good things about Coastal Helicopters! My husband and I went up today with our 10 month old and had a BLAST! Not only did we enjoy ourselves, but our baby had fun too! I wasn't sure what to expect since we were bringing a baby onto a helicopter, but everyone was so friendly and made sure that... More

What a fantastic way to see the beautiful "Banks". You receive a warm welcome from Larry and Steph when you arrive, so any jitters you have quickly subside. We live in KH and Larry even flew us over our house😊 bonus.
