As soon as you depart on the Ocean Tour, you’re zipping over Palm Beach Gardens en route to the beach. Within a few minutes, both the Palm Beach Inlet and infamous Peanut Island become visible on the horizon. Passing over them, you make a northbound turn up the coastline; look down – you might see a manatee or two!
Continuing north up the beach, you’ll soon be flying over Juno Beach and the Juno Pier. A few minutes later and your pilot will turn in the Jupiter Inlet, making a circle around the iconic Jupiter Lighthouse for yet another photo op before heading home.
Beginning the same as the Ocean Tour, the VIP Tour instead makes a southbound turn at Peanut Island. You’ll fly down the intracoastal waterway between the beautiful waterfront of Downtown West Palm Beach and the immaculate Palm Beach Island.
The Breakers Hotel will pass by your left side before you circle around one of the most famous homes in the United States: Mar-a-Lago. The “Winter White House”, as it has been dubbed, is almost impossible to see clearly from the ground, but you get an amazing view from the air before turning northbound along the shoreline.
The VIP tour includes all of the coastal section of the Ocean Tour, but instead of turning in the Jupiter Inlet, it continues a little further north. Before heading back, you’ll get to see the homes of the rich and famous along Jupiter Island, the wealthiest per-capita area in the country.
The Grand Tour changes things up by taking you southbound over Wellington; known for its equestrian community, and equestrian events such as show jumping and polo.
Heading eastbound, you’ll join the shoreline over Boynton Beach and head north, at which point all the landmarks from the VIP Tour will start to appear, such as Mar-a-Lago and the waterfront of downtown West Palm Beach.
The Grand Tour continues further north than any other tour, reaching all the way up to the St. Lucie inlet in Stuart. You get to take in the expansive bay area and Sewell’s Point before making your way back to the airport for landing.
Our helicopters can take a maximum of three passengers, and we have a minimum booking requirement of 2. We can accommodate back-to-back tours if your party is larger than 3 and needs to be split.
The Ocean Tour is approximately 30 minutes, the VIP Tour is approximately 1 hour, and the Grand Tour is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. Slight differences in times can occur from variations in airport traffic, air traffic control sequencing, and weather conditions.
Absolutely! In fact, we strongly encourage it. This is a great opportunity to get some stunning photos of a beautiful area.
Just dress comfortably, and if you have long hair, tie it up. We typically fly with at least one door off to keep the cockpit cool in the summer months. We can also remove your door if you want the full experience!
It’s actually quite rare that people get motion sickness on our tours. If you suffer with it though, you can take precautionary anti-nausea medication, and make sure you’re not constantly looking through a camera lens, as this can lead to disorientation and motion sickness.
Your combined party weight must be less than 550 lbs, with no individual weighing more than 300 lbs.
We don’t have a specific age requirement, but each person on board must be able to sit in their own seat with a seatbelt. We cannot accept lap-riding infants or children.
