Downtown and Tampa Bay Helicopter Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    This helicopter tour around and over Tampa Bay begins at the Peter O. Knight Airport on the Davis Islands, 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.
    Finish the flight by descending and hovering over the Port of Tampa and Hillsborough Bay to see if any bottlenose dolphins are visible playing in the water. Then it’s back to the Peter O. Knight Airport to conclude this unique and unforgettable tour of Tampa Bay.

    I was drawn in with their ad stating they had tours starting at a certain rate, which is their lowest rate advertised. But that's only a 5 minute tour. For a 15 minute tour, it's, you guessed it, almost 3 times that rate. And the...More
