Whether a helicopter ride has been on your list of things to do for years, or whether you’re a seasoned veteran, a scenic trip high above the Grand Strand is a great way to spice up your vacation. With 40 years of accident-free experience, OceanFront Helicopters has been taking vacationers and locals up in the air and out over the ocean safely and in style. Adventurers can choose from several different flight options, from a 2-minute Intro Trip that flies over Springmaid Pier, to a longer flight up to the North Carolina-South Carolina border, passing all of the iconic Myrtle Beach landmarks like the SkyWheel, Family Kingdom, and all of the resorts lining the coast. Also, there’s no need to worry about motion sickness as all of the pilots are commercially rated and use gentle turns during the flight. As their website says, “This is a professional scenic tour, not a thrill ride.” Each flight has a two-person minimum, and reservations are accepted but not necessary. Summer hours of operation are essentially daylight hours (8 a.m. – 8 p.m.), for obvious reasons. And no special attire is required, just bring a camera and enjoy the ride.
