What better way to take in the highlights of Antigua than by helicopter! The exhilaration of flying in a helicopter low over the crystal clear waters will be an experience you will never forget.
You will be met at the ship by your tour guide and driven by air-conditioned minibus to the helicopter pad just 10 minutes away from St John’s where you will be briefed on your flight before beginning your adventure. You will then board your awaiting private helicopter for a fully narrated and truly memorable Antigua tour.
This breath-taking tour ascends over Antigua's fabulous beaches and gives you a chance to see the entire circumference of Antigua, which includes over 100 miles of shoreline! Every beach, hotel, reef and historic fortification is along the route complete with live narration by the pilot.
You'll skim the crystal clear waters of the West Coast, passing Five Islands, Jolly Harbour, past Fig Tree Drive and over the extraordinary Cades Reef and past Rendezvous Bay. The super-yachts anchored at Falmouth Harbour will come into view, followed by historic English Harbour, Dow’s Hill and Shirley's Heights Lookout. The tour continues past the famous Half Moon Bay and past Green Island and Stingray City as you hug the north coast and the outlying islands. You’ll pass Bird Island, Prickly Pear Island and more beaches and fantastic scenery before passing Dickenson Bay and returning to our helipad close to St. John’s.
Your tour ends back in Antigua with a bird's eye view of your cruise ship! Once you land, re-board your minibus for the short transfer back to the pier.
