Itinerary

Your 30 minute Three Bays Cape Town Helicopter Flight (30 min) begins at the V&A Waterfront.

You will board your helicopter and enjoy dazzling panoramas of the city and Table Mountain as your chopper gains height.

Your pilot will head along the coast, giving you bird’s eye views of the magnificent Cape mountains and shoreline. He or she will tell you all about the places you can see as you fly along.

You’ll see picture-perfect Llandudno – one of the loveliest beaches in Cape Town, surrounded by bushes, trees and giant boulders and popular with surfers. Close to Llandudno is Hout Bay fishing village, sandwiched between the mountains and the sea.

Your flight continues over Chapman’s Peak – one of the most spectacular marine drives in the world. The 9 km route with its 114 curves skirts the 593 m southerly extension of Constantia Berg and follows the rocky coastline to unfold stunning views in both directions.

At the end of the Chapman’s Peak Drive you’ll see the Noordhoek with its lovely white beaches and wild wetlands.

You will also look down on Sun Valley and Fish Hoek and capture breathtaking views of False Bay and famous Seal Island – a long, narrow outcrop of bare granite where thousands of Cape fur seals congregate.

The route takes you over Muizenberg, where you should look out for the colorful bathing huts, and takes a turn past the beautiful wine-growing area of the Constantia Valley.

Your chopper will then fly you back to the V&A Waterfront where your airborne adventure ends.
