This helicopter tour of Miami touches on everything that makes the oceanside retreat famous: beautiful beaches, metropolitan landmarks, islands and waterways, and of course, great views of its famous skyline. Highlights of Magic City include South Beach, Fisher Island, Key Biscayne, and Virginia Key, and you see it all without getting snarled in traffic.
  • See Magic City from above on a narrated helicopter tour 
  • A fun, efficient way to see the best of Miami
  • Convenient hourly departure times throughout the day 
  • Aerial views of the skyline, downtown Miami, and its waterways
What to Expect
Make your own way to Miami Opa-Locka Airport. Once there you board your helicopter to begin your tour. Soak above picturesque beaches. Fly from North Beach all the way down to ever-trendy South Beach. Sports fans recognize Sun Life Stadium, home to the NFL's Miami Dolphins, and Gulfstream Park, a popular horse racing track and casino. No tour of Miami would be complete without experiencing its waterways. See them from above as you fly over the picturesque islands of Virginia Key, Sunny Isles, Fisher Island, and Key Biscayne. You also get a bird’s-eye view of the downtown skyline, the financial district of Brickell, and much more. Your tour ends at Miami Opa-Locka Airport where it began.
