After "first-person" traffic reporting failed due to anchors' expletive-laced dispatches from the middle of 10-car-thick jams, news teams turned to the helicopter for a better vantage point. Gain a hovering overview of traffic-less vistas with today's Groupon: for $127, you get a helicopter tour of Capitola or Elkhorn for up to three people from Specialized Helicopters, located in Watsonville (up to a $255 value).

Specialized Helicopters maintains an unsullied safety record while elevating the aeronautically inclined with whirly-bird's-eye views of the Monterey Bay area. The 15-minute Capitola tour of Capitola bestows passengers with 24 miles of stunning aerial views of crystal-clear waters, lush landscapes, and exclusive cloud beaches. A 15-minute flight over the Elkhorn Slough showcases one of California's largest wetlands, inhabited by harbor seals, sea otters, and merfolk. Certified pilots with a minimum of 300 hours of flight experience first coast over the Pajaro watershed and dunes before flitting past the sunny landscapes of Rio del Mar and Aptos, pausing momentarily to keep a vigilant sentry for sand-castle burglary. Then, hover-tourists glide briefly over the cement boat before soaring to Capitola for scenic views of East Cliff Drive and Monterey Bay's north side. Schedule a flight during the day, or at night and behold spectacular city lights and flashy moonbeam raves. Flights depart from and return to Watsonville Airport, and free pickup is available within 12 miles of the airport. For an additional fee, fliers can upgrade to other tours, or depart from Monterey.

Specialized Aviation

In addition to flight-training experiences and flight lessons, Specialized Aviation's professional pilots guide thrill-seekers on exhilarating scenic tours of the skies. The 20-minute helicopter whale-watching tour offers splendid views of marine life—including blue, humpback, and gray whales—from well above the water line in Monterey Bay.

Evan was awesome! He made us feel as if we already had known him. He asked us what we wanted to see and what we expected. He tried his best to get all of our wishes in one flight. I will definitely be back and absolutely recommend Specialized.
