Helicopter Tour from Punta Cana

Punta Cana Helicopter Flight

Your helicopter adventure starts with hotel pickup in Punta Cana for the drive to the airport, where you’ll check in and receive an introduction to helicopter safety. Then meet your pilot, board your 4-passenger helicopter and take off! During the flight, listen to commentary about the beaches and other sights from your pilot via your two-way headset. When you land, your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

10-minute flight:
Head to the coast, flying over the beaches of Bavaro and El Cortecito. Look down on the wide playas and gentle waves, and admire the lush vegetation, golf courses and expansive resorts that line the shore.

20-minute flight:
See the above, plus continue north, past Arena Gorda to Macao Beach, where some of Punta Cana’s most luxurious resorts lie along the extensive stretch of unspoiled coast.

30-minute flight:
See all of the above, but start a bit further south at Cabeza de Toro Beach near the eastern tip of the island. Soar over Bavaro Lagoon and up the coast past Macao Beach to Uvero Alto Beach.

40-minute flight:
See all of the above, but start even further south, flying over Punta Cana and the Cap Cana resort area, and then all the way up the coast to Uvero Alto Beach.

A great tour !! A great experience to overlook the Punta Cana up in the sky. Their service was excellent. They helped us to take a lot of photos. The pilot was great not only his flying skills but also he explained things to us throughout the tour. Highly recommend.

Fantastic trip, fantastic value for money. Great service. Picked up at the hotel and taken straight to the heliport. No waiting straight on the helicopter, then straight back to the hotel

I've made a 20's minutes tour and i've enjoyed a lot !
you have to do it on morning because the light is fantastic. For me 20 minutes is too short but so nice.

great trip but would have been better with more communication from the pilot. Would have been nice to hear about where we were flying over and all the sites we were looking at.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2015

helicopter ride was amazing, but we had an extremely long wait. originally scheduled for 3pm, didn't get into the air until 545pm. once we were up in the air, definitely worth it.
