Catch a bird’s eye view and coast over the scenic Gulf Coast at Beach Helicopters in Destin.
You’ve been laying out at the beach all weekend, eating at all of the great restaurants … but what does it all look like from above? Let’s face it, your plane landed way too fast, and you can bet the take-off will be just as short-lived.
Slow it down and linger a while in the clear skies above Destin. Cody at Beach Helicopters insists that this isn’t necessarily an adrenaline rush.
“A lot of customers come in thinking this is going to be a thrilling experience. It’s quite the opposite. It’s actually very serene and relaxing. The customers always comment on how smooth the ride was,” he says.
Beach Helicopters has a wide range of helicopter trips to choose from. Whether you’re on a budget or looking for the executive treatment, there’s a tour for you and your group.
Just want to get airborne? The beginner tour is a short 8-mile trip that gives you a quick, yet beautiful aerial view of Destin.
Want the best of the best? Saddle up for the 42-mile Seaside tour that goes all the way to Seaside, FL (a small community between Destin and Panama City) and explores the vivid watercolors located offshore.
Since Beach Helicopters is committed to offering the best value for the best experience, Cody makes a recommendation.
“Our most popular tour is the 13-mile harbor run that takes you right down to the jetties,” he says. “This is the best way to get to see dolphins, stingray, sea turtles and all of the other marine life we have here in Destin,” he says. “People spend all day at the beach and don’t realize how close they are to these animals. If you’re lucky, you might even get to see a manatee.”
So grab a friend or loved one and head over to Beach Helicopters in Destin for the best view in town.
