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, 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.

The people in the office were very friendly! It was my first time and our pilot made us feel right at home. I didn't want the tour to end! I highly recommend this tour!

Pilot contacted us to delay the trip for a couple hours for the clouds to clear up. When we went it was bright and sunny. About 12 minute ride around downtown and Davis Islands area. A lot of fun!
