What You Can Expect

Cape Town Helicopter Tour: Indian and Atlantic Oceans

Indian and Atlantic Ocean Flight

Leave the V&A Waterfront helipad and start your 360-degree circuit of Table Mountain, easily Cape Town’s most iconic sight, and then soar above Cape Town Stadium, home of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Follow the Atlantic coastline, passing Signal Hill before flying over impressive houses at Camps Bay and Clifton Beach. Then pass the imposing Twelve Apostles mountain range as you glide through the skies to Karbonkelberg Mountain.

While listening to fascinating commentary from your pilot, fly over historic Hout Bay with its busy harbor and beach, and then cross over the Cape Peninsula. Here you’ll see the Atlantic Ocean colliding with the Indian Ocean in the waters around False Bay. Enjoy great views of the contrasting landscapes, from craggy mountain peaks to white sandy beaches lapped by dazzling blue waves. As you pass over this gorgeous stretch of coastline, fly over Muizenberg Beach, keeping an eye out for the distinctive shadow of the great white sharks lurking off the shore!

Curving back around Table Mountain, watch the landscape change again as you glide above Cape Town’s leafy southern suburbs that stretch out toward the vineyards of Constantia Valley. Before touching down, take in Cape Town’s urban cityscape, weaving past downtown skyscrapers and modern high-rises. Landing back at the V&A Waterfront, your journey is complete!

My husband and I took the Two Oceans Tour as a gift to ourselves for our 27th wedding anniversary last week. I was such a wonderful experience. One of the best gifts I've ever received! Cape Town Helicopters is a first class business with new well maintained aircraft. Glad we used them and would again!

A great way to see the Penninsula when only in Cape Town for a couple of days.

Very interesting tour, beautiful scenes. Absolutely loved it. The only issue was that I could not hear the pilot well because of the noise.

I cannot suggest you do this enough. We we fortunate that we did this early afternoon in late August and the weather was fantastic, very warm and little cloud. Going around Cape Town and along the side of Table Island was amazing with great views everywhere, we then circled around the other side of TM and came back to Cape Town after what seemed like 5 minutes but was probably nearer 30 minutes.

Half way through the pilot pointed out some whales which he then circled around so we could take some pictures, this was done at the same height we were flying so there was no effect on the wildlife. If I came back to Cape Town I would certainly do this again.

What a spectacular way to see Cape Town and the coastline; the views where incredible. This is definitely a must-do experience for any visit to the city! The whole process was smooth, from arrival to the departure, the staff where helpful and friendly and explained everything to us. Highly recommended.

Wonderful! Seeing Capetown from above is great! Just be careful of the weather, we had to reschedule 2 times because of the winds during Spring.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2015

What an amazing experience. Really, really pleased we did it. We had a little bit of turbulence, but were extremely lucky with the weather overall. I would thoroughly recommend it for not only tourists, but South African's living there - it's a real eye opener to what a beautiful place the Cape is.
