We are happy that you had a great experience! We always recommend our longer tours. How often do you get a chance to fly in a helicopter?

100% the best thing my wife and I did during our trip to Rhode Island. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, great views and absolutely fantastic pilot. 10 out of 10. One does not simply make the most out of Rhode Island without experiencing this tour.
