I bought this Groupon for my husband's bday. Alex was our pilot and we had an amazing flight! He mentioned he knew where a group of humpback whales were hanging out. We took the risk and chose that tour route and it paid off! We saw SIX humpback whales during our flight. What a fantastic experience.

The Ventura Country Reporter featured Channel Islands Helicopters this year. Six Yelpers give it a perfect five-star average. A video preview of Channel Islands Helicopters' tours is available here.

  • I recently took a flight over the Santa Barbara Channel and Anacapa Island, where we spotted hundreds of dolphins from a fantastic overhead angle that’s much different than that experienced from a boat. We also enjoyed views of racing sailboats, scuba diving boats and the tall sailing ship Bill of Rights, whose passengers waved up toward the bright yellow aircraft. The boats and landmarks on Anacapa, including the historic lighthouse and Arch Rock, looked a little like toy models from high in the air. – Alex Wilson, Ventura County Reporter
  • There is absolutely nothing in the world like...leaving it...in a helicopter. I wasn't totally sure what to expect but our pilot, Dan, made the experience for us. We took a tour of the town and beach area then out to a couple of the Channel Islands. The scenery was unbelievable. I swear there must have been 300 dolphins in the pod we saw. – greg p., Yelp

About Channel Islands Helicopters

Helmed by chief pilot Josh Jones, Channel Islands Helicopters soars over the sparkling Pacific during breathtaking tours around Channel Island National Park and Channel Island Marine Sanctuary. Guests load into a luxurious, bright-yellow steed of the sky, zipping out of Oxnard Airport and into the wide skyscape. Floating along a mountain-framed coastline, the sturdy chopper scrapes the clouds as guests peer into the waters below. Depending on the season, whales may frolic in the surf, carousing with sea lions or jubilant dolphin pods that leap out of the waters in hopes of catching a glimpse at the mythical creature known as the whirlybird. Clink glasses of champagne with a loved one or two friends to commemorate a magnificent midair adventure.
