We went up with Dave in the little red helicopter and loved it. The views were fantastic and Dave had a good sense of humour and we loved the experience. It's expensive but worth it when you get up there and feel like your floating in the air. The view is so different than from a plane. The visibility from the helicopter is a different perspective altogether. If you want a unique experience I'd highly recommend it. I felt very safe In the helicopter even though I had pre conceived ideas about it falling from the sky. Thanks Dave it was nice to have met you

This was one of my husbands better decisions, Dave our pilot was awesome,his commentary was very knowledgeable of the area, and explained what was happening as we were starting up and taking off. Very reassuring to be in the loop. Yes it's a bit expensive but how else would you be able to see such a magnificent scenery, from the cliffs to the surf, and all the nooks and crannies in between, this is one experience you don't want to miss. Just do it.

This was our first experience in a helicopter and we really can't recommend it highly enough. Our Pilot was extremely knowledgeable about the area, and had some great stories to tell. We were made to feel very welcome and special. Enjoyed it thoroughly and would go again. Great value for money as well.

While we were visiting the Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary we saw the information desk for the Heli Experience in the visitor Centre. Since one of our party had her birthday that day we decided a helicopter trip was appropriate.

The route took us along the south western coastline to Cape du Couedic. As you can imagine a helicopter gives you a view of the coast you could not get in other ways. The weather was flawless and our pilot Dave was able to point out several features on the ground, such as Weir's Cove and its Flying Squirrel, which enhanced our car visit the next day.

Not cheap, but good value for money when you consider that you aren't going to get those views otherwise.
