Default Helicopter ride question

Has anyone taken the helicopter ride over St. Thomas? If so, how was it and what did it cost? Lastly, in your opinion, was it worth it?

Yep, the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I have done the helicopter tour of St. Thomas, but it was several years ago, and I doubt that the price will be the same now, as it was then. The ride was FANTASTIC, and we really enjoyed it! Having said that, I must admit that our pilot was a Vietnam Vet, and when he found out that I too, am a Vietnam Vet, and a pilot, we may have gotten a bit of a "special ride". We did things that a helicopter "can't do". I would recommend the helicopter tour, but honestly don't remember what the price was. It's a rather short, but very beautiful, and exciting tour!

Thanks Sky,

I'm going to did a little deeper to see what I can find out. I'd expect the view would be fantastic and should get some great Kodak moments.

Absolutely correct. Those islands are beautiful, and from the sky even more beautiful than you can imagine. Take the camera,,,,you'll be glad you did. GREAT RIDE IMO.

Yes. I recall sitting in the barracks talking with "airdales" about the dif between fixed wind and rotary.
