My husband and daughter enjoyed their helicopter ride. Staff was very friendly and helped ease apprehension of first helicopter ride. Beautiful scenery with amazing views of the wildlife.

Larry was very knowledgeable. Flexible with scheduling due to the weather. Patient with my two younger children. Would definitely do again!

Yes, we've had some challenging weather lately, but glad the trip worked out in the end. Larry loves taking kids up (and their parents), and encouraging an interest in aviation....please look us up again next time you're in the area!

We're so glad you found us at the last minute! We always tell people that you can see more of the Outer Banks from the helicopter in 30 minutes than you can from the ground all week, and it's true! It's especially interesting after you've...More

My name is Bradley smith we are coming from West Virginia to hatteras, I found this on trip advisor. I was wondering the prices/times/options you get in the ride. Does kids get cheaper prices than adult admission. We have a beach house set for the 26-3rd. Weather forecast is calling for rain the entire week so I'm looking for other things to get into if we're not out in a boat the entire time. Please contact me ASAP, thank you very much.

What is a Discovery flight? Two and Three hundred dollars is a bit over my budget. Thank you

Hi there, The Discovery Flight is approx. 12 minutes long, it's enough time to get out to the ocean and circle Jennette's Pier, maybe catch a glimpse of a dolphin or two!
