Myrtle Beach Helicopter Tours

By Ryan • March 07, 2014

If flying in a helicopter is on your bucket list you can check it off in Myrtle Beach. It’s a great way to remember your trip, taking a scenic helicopter ride with views of the ocean. Best of all they have a $20 ride over the beach.

Huffman Helicopters is located just one block from the ocean and prides itself on giving more tours annually than any other helicopter tour company in the southeast.

It’s a chance to tour the Grand Strand from an altitude of 700 feet, but custom tours can be arranged for those looking for a different view. There are a few choices of tours. Prices depend on the tour you choose because tours are priced by distance, not time. If you go dress for the season, no special attire is required for the ride.

For all of the thrill seekers you may be disappointed as these tours are professional scenic tours only. All rides are smooth and turns will be slow. It’s fun and safe for the kids! A maximum of three people can fly at once and there is no age limit. Children under 2 years must ride on a parents lap and ride free. If the whole family is interested they can arrange for larger group tours with advance notice.

Flying over the ocean is exhilarating and you might catch a glimpse of some of the oceans creatures. It’s not uncommon to spot fish, turtles or even a shark. If it’s a busy summer day you will fly over crowds of beach goers wishing they could catch a view from your seat. Don’t be afraid to snap a few pictures to share with you family and friends.

Huffman Helicopters of Myrtle Beach is located at 3000 South Kings Highway Myrtle Beach, SC 29577. They are open for tours every day, weather permitting. Summer Hours are 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Winter Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
