Hilton Head Island: Scenic Helicopter Tour

1. Hilton Head Island: Scenic Helicopter Tour

Marvel at breathtaking views only seen by helicopter. Spot a range of wildlife from dolphins and sharks to sea turtles and manta rays. See Hilton Head, Daufuskie, Tybee Island, and downtown Savannah by air. Choose between 3 options: Ocean View – 3 minutes Get views of Folly Field Beach and the Port Royal Sound on an 8-mile loop around the northeast corner of the island. This flight is designed as a discovery flight to experience what it is like to fly in a helicopter. Beach Cruiser – 6 minutes Fly right over the sandy shores of Hilton Head. Depart out of the Hilton Head Airport and head east, right down the busiest beaches on the island. This tour offers great views of Folly Field Beach, Broad Creek, Port Royal Sound, and Shelter Cove. Beach Bum – 10 minutes A combination of the Ocean View and Beach Cruiser tours, this tour takes you along the most active stretch of beaches to Coligny Beach, Hilton Head's most popular beach park. Keep an eye out for marine life as you fly low along the beach. As you turn around you will begin to climb high in the sky giving you the best view of the island along with Parris Island and Downtown Savannah.

The helicopter ride was incredible. The whole staff was friendly and amazing. Unfortunately I would not recommend your site. You are more expensive then going directly to hilton head helicopter tours. Their prices are cheaper and you only offer 3 of their packages. Why not offer everything??? I was very disappointed by this! The experience itself was worth every penny and we will probably do it again.

“Beach Bum” tour was a reasonable price and length for us as first time helicopter riders. Really enjoyed the ride and the expertise of our pilot, as well as the friendliness of the assistant who helped us in and out of the helicopter. Would definitely do again and a longer tour next time!

Amazing experience. Even more amazing pilot. It was his first time flying, so we all took turns trying to figure out how a helicopter works. It's a lot easier than it looks.

Tyler was great tour guide he made the experience very fun! And he’s funny :)

Great views and most comfortable headphone ever get on a helicopter ride!
