THE WORKS Flight details
This Ideal helicopter tour of the San Fransisco Bay Area starts at San Carlos Airport on the peninsula and flys north by SFO, with a rare look at one of the busiest International airports in the country, then Northeast by the historic Candlestick Park Home of the San Francisco 49ers Football Team. Then on to the Port of San Francisco, AT&T Park and the home of the San Francisco Giants then over the SF Bay Bridge, by the Embarcadero Ferry Building, marina district &  Coit Tower, Pier 39 & insane views of the city & then out over to Alcatraz Island then remote Angel Island, Tiburon on to the North Bay over to Sausalito and the “Marin Headlands”.


The Bay Area helicopter tour continues west right next to or over the famous Golden Gate Bridge offering spectacular views & an incredible photo opportunity with The San Francisco City backdrop. Then we fly South by The “Presidio” and on out the mouth of the San Francisco Bay & over Point Bonita,  historic Cliff House & Sutra Bathes, Ocean Beach and the many surfers, all the while magnificent city & coastal views from all angles, further south along the coast and the hang gliders and seals dot the scenery sometimes the elusive whales and sharks? are visible too. The flight continues further south past Pacifica, “Devils Slide” and Monterra Beach another place for whale sightings. Just near is a marine reserve and a spot for up close viewing of marine life such as seals, starfish, coral & anemones. Southward reveals the famous “Mavericks” surf spot that annually has yielded some of the largest waves on the globe. Then the tour continues on by historic Princeton Harbor and the town of Half Moon Bay.


Further south the unique grounds of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel on the cliffs and then pristine & massive natural sea caves, beaches and seals by the hundreds. Depending on the winds we may continue further south to historic lighthouses and more natural sea cliffs or turn inland over the beautiful and untouched farmlands of San Gregorio and over “skyline” to an awesome overall view of the entire Bay Area from San Jose to Marin. This helicopter tour of San Fransisco will pass many historic locations and natural beauty seen as only a bird can.

Finally approaching the 1-hour mark as we return toward San Carlos Airport, we pass over interesting multi million dollar estates with a complete overview of the Silicon Valley.

You will most definitely enjoy this ride, as our Helicopters offer a safe, comfortable and incredible vantage point while efficiently covering a tremendous amount of the Local Bay Area.
