What You Can Expect

South Shore Helicopter Tour

South Shore Helicopter Tour

Your aerial adventure starts at the airport in South Lake Tahoe, where you’ll board your Robinson R44 Raven II or a Bell 206 LongRanger helicopter. Depending on the model, the maximum number of passengers is three to five, plus your pilot. Settle into your leather seat, and put on the provided noise-reducing headset.

As you take off, look out your window to admire the alpine landscape of the Lake Tahoe region. Fly north to the lake shore, and soar over to Zephyr Cove. Then head south and follow the shore to Stateline and Edgewood Golf Course. Fly over the Nevada casinos and along the Tahoe Keys before zooming over to Camp Richardson.

Next, head over to Lake Tahoe’s crown jewel, Emerald Bay, known for its small island in the center. After this photo op, you’ll return to the airport, where your tour ends.

The views were amazing and the pilot was extremely friendly. They took good care of my parents who were flying like that in a helicopter for the first time. They had a wonderful time and they loved the experience. The views were amazing too and like any other person, I'd definitely like a bit more time. But, can't complain about the experience at all. Totally recommended.

Our tour was brief but magnificent. I rode in front with the pilot, Clint, who was relaxed and conversational. My husband sat in back of us snapping as many pictures as possible. The colors of the bay were even more spectacular than imagined.

It was a thrill and a great ride! We look forward to going again but for a longer tour next time.

Cheers

Wonderful experience, Would recommend to all, I have been to Lake Tahoe twice before but never seen it from the sky. Pilot and ground staff were extremely helpful. Due to the nature of the weather around Tahoe our first scheduled flight was cancelled. On the day we arrived I do believe we were given a few extra minutes in the air to compensate.

Great service! The helicopter size is perfect. Anything bigger would not feel as personalized.
