Overview
More
Beachside Helicopters is the number one helicopter tour company on the Space Coast of Florida. Our Robinson R44 Clipper II aircraft is the only amphibious helicopter in the area. This means you get the opportunity to fly over rivers and the ocean in safety, giving you unique views of the amazing marine wildlife. Our air conditioned helicopter seats up to four people (pilot plus three passengers) in comfort, and our safety rating in number one. We operate 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and recommend you call or email to make a reservation, although we do welcome "walk in's".

My 2 children had never flown in a helicopter before but Gary put them at ease and they had a fantastic time and saw spectacular views of the ocean and the beach. We didn't see any sea life but we did see plenty of birds.
