Know Before You Go

  • For your safety, please do not scuba dive within 24 hours of departure.
  • If you are prone to motion sickness, taking a precautionary anti-motion sickness medication is a good idea. However, the flights are very smooth, and turns are slow and gentle. This is a professional scenic tour, not a thrill ride. Most people do not experience motion sickness and do not need an anti-motion sickness medication.
  • All tours are wheelchair accessible and ADA compliant. Each base also has a custom-built chair lift to assist passengers into the helicopter safely and comfortably. Chair lifts are able to accommodate passengers up to 250 lbs.

What To Bring

  • Wear solid dark-colored clothing. This will cause less reflection in the windows to allow a clear view of all the sights. It will also allow you to take better photos and video without clothing items or light-colored logos or patterns from your clothing reflecting in the photos that you and other guests would like to take of the magnificent scenery.
  • The helicopters are temperature controlled so dress comfortably.
  • Don’t forget your camera or phone to capture memories.
