Overview

On this San Francisco Helicopter Tour, the sky really is the limit!

A helicopter tour is the ultimate way to admire beautiful San Francisco, highlighting the bay and its famous sights.

You will be picked up from a central San Francisco meeting point and taken to the heliport to board a Bell Jet Helicopter for take-off on an exciting San Francisco Helicopter Tour. An accompanying musical soundtrack is choreographed to the flight, along with spontaneous narration by your professionally trained pilot.

There are two options for your San Francisco Helicopter Tour: 


1. Vista Tour (20 mins): This 37-mile flight lasts for 15-20 minutes in a Bell Jet helicopter, and takes inthe well-known landmarks of San Francisco. You'll see the Ferry Building, Alcatraz Island, the city skyline, Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge and much more!

2. Vista Grande Tour (30 mins): On this 55 mile helicopter flight (25-30 minutes), you will see many of the well-known San Francisco Bay landmarks from the air such as the Ferry Building, Alcatraz Island, the Bay Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf and of course, the Golden Gate Bridge. Then fly north to take in the Marin Headlands and California's craggy Pacific Coastline. You will also see the artist town of Sausalito, the sleepy town of Tiburon, and the former immigration station of Angel Island.

This excursion includes a complimentary shuttle from downtown & Fisherman's Wharf hotels to the heliport, 30 minutes prior to flight. Pick ups are at 10:00am, 12:30pm and 3:00pm.
