This 16-mile helicopter tour around Old Downtown St. Augustine and over Porpoise Point begins at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport, four miles north of the city.
Take off to the east over the Intracoastal Waterway to North Beach, then enjoy a breathtaking view of the beach and coastline, flying low and fast to Porpoise Point. Cross the St. Augustine Inlet to Anastasia Island and catch a bird’s-eye view of the St. Augustine Light Station at the north end. See the Bridge of Lions, a double-leaf bascule bridge spanning the Intracoastal Waterway; the Castillo de San Marcos, the oldest masonry fort in the United States; Flagler College, a private, four-year liberal arts school and the Nombre de Dios Mission, a Spanish-Catholic mission. Then head west around the south side of town and back north to capture spectacular views of Old Downtown set against a backdrop of the beaches of St. Augustine.
