Owner description: In 1992 the idea of creating a company that would provide world class aviation services in the Dominican Republic was born. The visionary idea at the time was to utilize helicopters to facilitate a variety of solutions otherwise non-existent in the country. The primary idea was to be able to offer transportation, entertainment, charter flights and tourist sightseeing. For this reason, HELIDOSA was created and since then has become the largest Certificated Helicopter Air Carrier in the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean Region currently flying more than 15,000 passengers annually. HELIDOSA has become synonymous with prestige in local as well as national markets, obtaining high brand recognition based on its safety record and excellence in customer service. With more than 20 Rotor Wing Aircraft and 6 Jets, Helidosa Aviation Group is able to provide it's clientele with a wide range of aviation services including Tourism, Air Ambulance, Utility and Charter Flights to and from local, as well as international destinations.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We have been going to the DR for about 10 years now, and have seen many of the sights and decided that we needed to try something different that wouldn't be too time consuming, so the helicopter tour seemed to fit our bill. We chose the 20min, tour as it seemed as if we would see everything we were interested in. Our pilot was excellent, spoke very good English and we were able to converse during the trip. it was the perfect day, calm and sunny! We saw a salt water lake that we had never even heard of! We flew over our hotel, and got some great shots of it from above! Saw the sunken Russian cargo ship, macao beach, manati playing in the ocean, and other hotels. Went north as far as Hard Rock and macao beach and came back. It was great seeing all the other hotels and the sizes of them! It was a beautiful trip and I would recommend it to others. Don't know if it was really only 20 minutes as it felt longer. We felt is was worth the money! Our shuttle driver was also very nice and informative about Punta Cana! Thanks for a great trip!

“Punta Cana beaches by air.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

I thought, what the heck, I'll go for a helicopter tour. So I went ahead and made the arrangements with the Hotel beds rep. at the Bavaro Princess. I was picked up in a clean well maintained crew cab pick up truck. ( I was the only one, so why send a buss) We drove to the site and was offered a seat in a shaded snack area while the chopper was being prepared. There were 4 others scheduled for the same time so we got the large chopper. It was a bit windy, but it was smooth in the air. We took off and headed to the shore area. I saw quite a bit, and if you asked the pilot he took a extra turn around a given area. The Bavaro Princess was hard to spot because of the tall trees, but the Majestic Colonial stood out like anybody's business.
The 20 minutes was over before I knew it. I almost talked myself into going back a day or so later. I would highly recommended this attraction! But be aware the price adds up!
