Did a two-person flight lesson in the R44, 30min each. What an amazing experience! Worth very penny. Nick was our flight instructor and he was great!

“SO COOL SO COOL DO IT!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

This was so much fun! If you are even in the slightest curious about helicopters, you need to do this. My boyfriend and I did the ten minute tour around the Bay, it was too short, I wish we could have done the longer tours. Our pilot was so friendly and funny, he gave us a lot of Wastonville history and ocean info. It was an all around wonderful trip, do experience it!

Reviewed March 4, 2013

Great trip overlooking Monterey Bay. A must do. Only downfall was that it was only for about 45 minutes.

“Whale and dolphins by air”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

My father has wanted to see whales for years but never went on a whale watch tour by boat. He's now too unsteady for a boat so we took him by helicopter over Monterey Bay. The staff at Specialized Helicopter were very helpful in getting him in and out of the helicopter and it was comfortable for him and for the rest of us. It was a grand day and we were able to see several pods of dolphins (too high up to identify type) and a couple of gray whales. The day was truly beautiful and we had gorgeous views of the Monterey Bay area and the coast. While seeing whales from the air isn't the best way to go as they are so far away, it worked for the circumstances. The trip itself was breathtaking.
