What You Can Expect

Monterey Bay Big Sur Helicopter Tour

Monterey Bay or Big Sur Helicopter Tour

Your aerial adventure starts at Monterey Regional Airport, where you’ll hop aboard your helicopter. Put on your provided headphones to listen to commentary from your professional pilot about the sights below you.

Fly over and around Monterey Bay, looking down as waves break against the shore. While your pilot points out landmarks, keep your eyes open for local marine life like whales who migrate down the coast and sea otters who swim in the kelp forests of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

Then, fly 23 miles (37 km) down the Central Coast to Big Sur, famous for its cliffs and rocky coves. Look down on the charming town of Carmel, and admire the Southern Coast Ranges and Santa Lucia Mountains, which jut up from the Pacific. You don’t want to miss the aerial perspective of the Bixby Creek Bridge, one of the most photographed sights on the whole California coast.
