Omg! Where to start? This was absolutely amazing. We did the "Run the Pass" tour. We felt that was the best bang for our buck. Our guide was really cool telling us little bits about Panama City and the helicopters in general. Was it expensive? Yeah, kinda... but I'm so glad that my husband and I did this.

They have different prices according to how long you want your tour to last. I would recommend the Shell Island tour, it is 28 miles long so about 20 minutes, of course it depends how much you are willing to pay. Personally we loved it, it was a birthday gift so worth every minute of it.They have a website so... More

I have had helicopter ride in the past, but it was a first for my spouse. She had a smile in her face all the way...! As the flight is done at low level (approx 400ft) it can be bumpy on windy day.

They have a great operation and of course a great view to show you. After seeing their helicopters flying by for years, it was a great treat to finally go. Do give it a try! Don't forget your camera, but don't spend all your time looking through the viewfinder, you have to enjoy the flight and the scenery also.

Booked the Run to the Pass. Saw lots of marine life and a beautiful view of the gulf. Pilot and staff were friendly and professional.

Took the 5 mile helicopter ride which is long enough to get the experience and at a reasonable cost of $35pp (w coupon avail in local tourist ads). Flew over beach, saw a pod of dolphins and a school of rays. Great Views! Friendly pilot.

I wanted to gift my daughter a helicopter ride for her 16th birthday. The day before her birthday, we stopped by to ask the details for the ride. When we arrived the next day, the receptionist, same one that we had talked to the previous day, stated that my daughter would have to wait until another "single passager" signed up... More

Staff was very friendly . We had a very short wait and didn't have to call ahead. Our pilot was Eric and we really enjoyed flying with him. When you looked after prices it seems expensive but it was definitely worth it and would suggest it to anyone. Their location was also easy to find.
