What You Can Expect

Tampa Bay Sunset Helicopter Tour

Sunset over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge

This helicopter tour around and over Tampa Bay begins at the Peter O. Knight Airport on the Davis Islands, five minutes from downtown Tampa. Take off to the west of the city and enjoy a view of the most elaborate homes on the islands, including Bayshore Boulevard, as the helicopter turns north towards Tampa’s downtown skyline. Check out magnificent views from just above rooftop level. There’s Amalie Arena, home for ice hockey, basketball, arena football games and concerts; the Florida Aquarium, one of the top aquariums in the country; the University of Tampa and all the city’s skyscrapers — like Bank of America Plaza, 100 North Tampa and One Tampa City Center.

Pass over Ybor City and the Hillsborough River en route to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, then watch the sun set behind downtown Tampa while floating over the Port of Tampa Bay. From there, it’s a twilight flight over the Alafia River and back to the Peter O. Knight Airport to conclude this unique and unforgettable tour of Tampa Bay.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2013

Unfortunately we missed the sunset as the tour of the Tampa skyline took too long. It was disappointing, as the trip was a surprise for my wife, who always want a romantic helicopter ride.
