“An Excellent Tour -- One Worth Taking”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This was our fourth helicopter tour, but our first in the Outer Banks and it was awesome! Larry and Steph are the kind of people that you feel like you've known them forever. Larry pointed out the points of interest, giving us details you don't read in the books. We will definitely fly with them again, and hopefully next time, we'll get to take our grandson on his first helicopter ride. Thanks Larry and Steph for making us feel right at home. Lisa & Gary

“Awesome experience!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Sitting in the front seat of the helicopter, looking out over the beautiful Outer Banks, is unlike anything you have ever experienced. The view is just...incredible. It's huge, unobstructed, and way better than an airplane. Larry is a great pilot and you can tell he loves what he is doing. Everyone wears a headset so you can hear each other and block out the noise, and Larry will helpfully point out landmarks, schools of fish and even sharks in the water. The absolute coolest thing I saw was a group of cownose rays swimming in the ocean, dozens of them, all diamond shaped and extending over a huge area. If you have the hankering to see the Outer banks from above, don't miss out on a helicopter tour with Coastal Helicopter.

“Unique experience!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of taking a helicpoter tour with Larry. Right from our arrival, when we met Larry's wonderful and helpful wife, Stephanie, our experience with Coastal Helicopters was nothing less than perfect. It was the highlight of our vacation! As frequent vistors to the Outer Banks, this was a very unique way to expereince its beauty. While flying over the ocean, we saw turtles, dolphins, rays, large schools of fish, and shipwrecks. Larry was very informative throughout the trip and constantly pointed out things for us to see. We will definitely be going back for more adventures with Coastal Helicopters.
