$149 for a Porpoise Point & Old Downtown Helicopter Tour for Up to Three (Up to $270 Value)
Pilots on the Porpoise Point & Old Downtown tour lift off like mind-boggled ostriches in Robinson R44 helicopters from the St. Augustine Airport. They then soar eastward for panoramic views of a castle inspired by Irish Castle Otttis, the docked boats and rippling waters of Porpoise Point, and the black-and-white spiral-striped St. Augustine lighthouse. Pilots then soar past the inner coastline and weathered stone battlements of Castillo de San Marcos National Monument before returning to the airport to high-five the Wright Brothers' ghosts.
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, nine 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, the Florida Keys, and Savannah, GA.
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.
