Pilots on the bay and downtown tour soar over the ornate homes of Davis Island and Bayshore Boulevard before flying above downtown Tampa. Other sites include the Florida Aquarium, the University of Tampa, and the Port of Tampa, where guests can spot bottlenose dolphins playing in Hillsborough.

The sunset tour gives couples an opportunity to kindle the flames of romance or a trio of buddies to high-five at the gorgeous views, flying riders eastward as the sun begins its descent over the horizon. Bathed in a warm golden glow, the chopper then heads south over 12 miles of beach before returning back over the sandy expanse just in time to glimpse an idyllic panorama of St. Augustine as the sun sets over Old Downtown.

Old City Helicopters

Andres Kerllenevich began flying helicopters as a hobby while making a living as a lawyer. As time passed, he earned his license and left to fly tours over Alaska and New York City. He eventually settled in St. Augustine, the historical city where his wife fondly remembered vacationing as a child. Now, seven other FAA-certified pilots join him in leading tours over the coastal castles, historic lighthouses and colleges, and vibrant downtown areas of St. Augustine, Tampa, and the Florida Keys.

At the helm of Robinson R44 helicopters, the pilots soar at heights of up to 1,500 feet past Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, Porpoise Point, and the towering red cross at the Mission of Nombre de Dios. They also guide tours above Tampa Bay, the Tampa Bay Times Forum, and the Florida Aquarium, while granting passengers glimpses of coastline populated by bottlenose dolphins. Pilots have also orchestrated aerial marriage proposals, during which the groom-to-be points out his question written on the beach or on a rooftop sign. The tours grant a bird's-eye view for photography and videography sessions.


This was just an awesome experience! Our guide was very through explaining everything
