Departing from your hotel in Road Town, you’ll be transferred to the helicopter base at Terrance B Lettsome International Airport at Beef Island in Tortola. Once you’re buckled in, a gentle climb puts you over the famous Sir Francis Drake Channel. Flying over this region of stunning natural beauty, from Virgin Gorda to St John and beyond (depending on your selected flight), you’ll enjoy unique and unsurpassed views of paradise in the British Virgin Islands! Select from three scenic flights (see descriptions below).
Option 1: Cloud Nine Flight
This 15- to 20-minute flight takes you on an informative and exciting aerial tour of Sir Francis Drake Channel and its islands. You’ll appreciate breathtaking views of the windward chain of British Virgin Islands, which look like pearls on a string over the turquoise water.
Option 2: Treasure Chest Flight
This 30- to 40-minute flight extends further past Sir Francis Drake Channel, heading southwest to explore Pirates Bight. You’ll fly to Jost van Dyke and onward to the millionaires’ playground of the North Sound and Necker Island.
Option 3: VIP Flight
This 40- to 50-minute VIP flight includes St John and the cays of the eastern US Virgin Islands, along with St Tomas, the spectacular Horseshoe Reef and Anegada – the only inhabited British Virgin Island formed from coral and limestone. Your VIP helicopter tour includes a complimentary glass of Champagne!
