Full description
Take in an amazing bird’s-eye view of San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area with a popular helicopter flight. Choose from three different departure times and pick-ups at either Union Square, Nob Hill, or Fisherman’s Wharf, and relax on the ride to the launch pad. After a safety briefing, climb aboard the Bell Jet helicopter and launch into the air for an unforgettable vista of the world-famous city.  

Admire the unique landscape of the city, which spans the tip of a peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. Hover over landmarks like Alcatraz Island, the Transamerica pyramid, the Ferry Building, Ghirardelli Square, Coit Tower, and AT&T Park. With informative narration from your expert pilot, view both the Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge. For the ultimate thrill, and when weather conditions permit, fly over and under the Golden Gate Bridge.

Throughout the 15 to 20-minute flight, enjoy inspiring background music and live narration from your pilot. After touching down back at the launch pad, you will be transported back to your original departure point.
