Enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean as you soar over two of America’s busiest seaports!
During this scenic helicopter tour, you’ll explore southern California and the City of Long Beach like never before!
Departing from the Long Beach Airport, your one-of-a-kind flight will kick off when you meet your FAA-Certified pilot and board a Robinson R-44 helicopter. As soon as you take off, you’ll be treated to gorgeous views of the California coast.
You’ll immediately be whisked towards the ocean where you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. Together, these bustling harbors are two of America’s busiest seaports. Watch as towering cranes move giant shipping containers and see if you can spot a fully loaded cargo ship heading out to sea. In addition to these impressive seaports, you’ll enjoy jaw dropping views of Downtown Long Beach, the Queen Mary, and the historic USS Iowa Battleship!
Finally, you’ll glide over the City of San Pedro and the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
