My family kept seeing the helicopters traveling up and down the beach and wanted to check the out. The price was right for a quick, fun, and memorable adventure. The view of the Emerald Coast from the air is quite beautiful!

Hi Felessia, we actually have a 2 person minimum and our tours range in price from $5 per person (5 miles) all the way up to $150 per person (36 miles). So it really just depends on how far you want to fly!
