The 10 Best Helicopter Tours in Florida, United States

December 7, 2021 Dorsey Hagwood

Not just for retirees and theme park enthusiasts, the Sunshine State offers beautiful beaches, pristine diving conditions, and sizzling nightlife. Salsa the night away in a smokin’ hot Miami club, or swing away at one of Kissimmee’s many premium golf courses. An airboat tour of the Everglades is an unforgettable adventure – just look out for alligators! For the risk-averse, a lazy day spent on the soft sands of an Emerald Coast beach is as rejuvenating as a spa treatment.

We will offer you a unique experience from the moment you arrive until the end, not only because of the tour but because of our detailed oriented personalized customer service. This guided tour will allow you to appreciate part of this beautiful city from a different perspective, from the buildings, mansions, and constructions, to the variety of wild-ocean life. The boats, cruises, and cargo ships can be seen all at once around the Ft. Lauderdale Port Everglades. If it’s your lucky day, which we know it will be, you can see dolphins, sharks, turtles, rays, manatees and more, while we are flying over the ocean, near the shoreline. You will be amazed at how closed these species can get to you when you are having fun at the beach. In general, flying in a helicopter generates different emotions, from facing your fears, to experiencing a high sense of amaze, gratitude, and happiness.

Inclusions: Headset, Fuel surcharge, Insurance coverage, Bottled water, Photos of your experience are included in the price

Exclusions: Airport/Departure Tax, Gratuities
