What You Can Expect

Antigua Helicopter Tour

Enjoy aerial views of Antigua!

A flight over Montserrat offers a very rare opportunity to witness an active volcano from a safe distance. After laying dormant for over half a century, the Soufriere Hills Volcano rumbled to life in 1995 and has been active ever since. Activity increased in 1997, with huge eruptions of lava, rocks and ash changing the face of Montserrat forever. Entire villages were engulfed by pyroclastic flows, and the southern half of the island was evacuated and is still considered an exclusion zone today.

Antigua is just 13 miles across but has many coves and bays, and 365 white sand beaches - one for every day of the year! The island has warm, steady winds, a complex coastline of safe harbors, and a protective, nearly unbroken wall of coral reef. Seeing Antigua from a helicopter is a beautiful sight, one not easily forgotten.

Please note: All passenger's weights must be advised at the time of booking.

Excellent trip. Caribbean Helicopters staff are all very friendly and welcoming. Well worth the $80 (US) taxi ride from St James!

Great tour. However, after much communcation prior to my arrival at the storefront, there was still drama when the man behind the counter wasn't expecting me and ask me to pay for my tour even though it had been paid for 6 weeks prior. And, even though my voucher said PREPAID, he still didn't believe that I had paid. I had to encourage him to make a phone call to the woman I had been speaking to for weeks. Once the call was made, everything was cleared up. Also, there were 5 of us in the helicoptor. 2 married couples and me. Instead of putting me up front and letting the married couples be together, he split up a married couple one up fron and one in back and had me facing backward even though I had booked weeks in advance. That wasn't fair. But, once we took off, the sights were awesome, the ride was awesome and the pilot knew his stuff and was very infomative.
