We took an 8 year old on a follow up flight because he enjoyed his first experience do much. Well, he enjoyed his second experience more. We took a longer flight that included seeing a whale! I recommend this for anybody, and the eight year old suggested to me that his birthday is coming up and another flight would make... More

WOW!!!, lucky me, I was fortunate to get to ride along in this SEXY, High Performance Airbus H-120. It's not only fast, but an absolutely Beautiful Helicopter! The aerial views of the Southern California coastline is an indescribable experience and a must see! Ric, the owner, is an amazing pilot and makes you feel safe and sound! This sunset ride... More

Professional, No Hassle Charter Company. Accommodating of questions asked and our schedule. Their EC-120 was in great shape and extremely quiet. This is our go to helicopter charter company in the Los Angeles metropolis going forward.

I booked a tour for my boyfriend's birthday. We flew down the coast to Laguna, our pilot, Rick, was so friendly and made the tour feel extra special. The aircraft was spacious, comfortable and clean. I highly recommend OC Helicopters for tours!

Never been on a heli before. Expected it to be a bumpy, scary ride; oh was I wrong. Smooth, informative and fun. Not only will I be going again, but encourage others to do so as well.

The pilot is the owner of the company. Family run business with emphasis on laughter, fun and more jokes! I have chartered helicopters many times, and this pilot was by far the most experienced and the most knowledgeable in the area's landmarks. A+ Highly recommended.

Our tour was amazing! Rick at OC Helicopters was friendly, fun, and informative. Patti was also very helpful in setting up our flight. Due to the weather, we weren't able to fly to the beach, but Rick made it up to our group and took us on an extra 5 minute tour. I have already recommended OC Helicopters to my... More

We all loved this tour, even my sister who has a fear on airplanes and gets motion sickness. Our pilot Rick made us all feel comfortable and very prepared for the tour. He talked us through everything that would happen. He is clearly very passionate of his work which made the experience overall more pleasant. The flight was surprisingly smooth... More

This is not some just something to do in OC. I live in Florida and was working in OC for a couple weeks. I'm retired USN, and spent a little time (as a passenger) in helicopters (H-3s). Noisy, hot, lots of exhaust fumes, etc. This was NOT that. This is bucket list worthy - a must, unless you own your... More
