It was fantastic, weather was perfect for this. Very worth it. The owner Jessica is very nice. But she was not our pilot and I can't think of his name. If you have the chance take this ride of a life time!More

I need you to get a good look at storm damage after Hurricane Florence. The pilot was exceptional and did a great job getting me where I needed to go.

I've always wanted to go in a helicopter, so for my 50th birthday I did.It was amazing. I have issues with heights and I get motion sick. So I was very nervous. I would recommend High Tide Helicopter to anyone.

We went for the quick 6 minute tour for $50 but it felt longer because we were having so much fun. Saw lots of of the highlights of the area. Well worth it.
