- Enjoy the unique thrill of a vertical take-off
- Spot sharks and stingrays in the waves far below
Even if you fly on planes regularly, the sensation of flying in a helicopter will feel totally unique, as you rise up into the sky vertically, then effortlessly glide smoothly through the sky above Florida’s gorgeous Cocoa Beach and Port Canaveral, the second-busiest cruise port in the world. Get amazing views that really let you appreciate the scale of the cruise ships, and how they dwarf the shrimp fishing boats, as you travel from the ocean to the Banana River then along the beach to the pier.
This experience is perfect for three friends, or a couple with a child, as there are only three passenger seats in the helicopter, one of which is next to the pilot, and they all have a large window to look out from. As you pass over the beach, make sure you wave to the sunbathers, and keep an eye out in the waves for sharks, stingrays and surfers, and possibly even a US Navy submarine at the Trident Turning Basin.
