Old City Helicopters, LLC - St. Augustine Airport: Porpoise Point & Old Downtown, City of Lights, or Sunset Tour for Up to 3 from Old City Helicopters, LLC (Up to 46% Off)

For centuries humans have envied birds' innate ability to fly and to rest peacefully in nests without the threat of a bird attack. Gain enviable abilities with this Groupon

Choose Between Two Options

  • $149 for a Porpoise Point & Old Downtown or City of Lights helicopter tour for up to three (up to a $270 value)
  • $259 for a sunset helicopter tour for up to three (a $477 value)

Pilots on the Porpoise Point & Old Downtown tour lift off like mind-boggled ostriches in Robinson R44 helicopters from St. Augustine Airport. They then soar eastward for panoramic views of Castle Otttis, which was inspired by an Irish castle; 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.

From Saturday, November 17, to Thursday, January 31, passengers can enjoy a bird's-eye view of St. Augustine's Nights of Lights celebration—in which area landmarks are lined with millions of white lights—during the City of Lights tour.

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 decent 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, 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.

Great experience. Took my out of town girlfriends on a tour and they thoroughly enjoyed it. It was short - only about 10 mins.
