Full description

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.

This was our first helicopter ride. Family owned business. Everyone was friendly, courteous and answered any questions we had. The pilot was also all of the above and has a good sense of humor which was nice. We chose the 6 minute tour this time, we will be back for a longer flight in the not too distant future. If you visit the Hilton Head Island, I recommend you take a helicopter ride with Hilton Head Helicopter Tours at the airport.

My dad and I flew Friday, September 23rd and we had the best time! We’ve previously flown on other helicopter tours, but never one over the ocean . This was a special tour, all thanks to our friendly and knowledgeable pilot who also helped to serve as our tour guide. It was a great way to kick off our long weekend getaway, and definitely helped us to get a lay of the land!

“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!
