What To Expect

Begin your private tour at the V&A Waterfront helipad right in central Cape Town. Climb into a helicopter and kick off the adventure with a complete circle around the city’s most recognizable landmark — Table Mountain. Continue over the city to see Cape Town Stadium, one of the hosts of the 2010 World Cup, and down along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.

Pass Signal Hill and fly over Camps Bay and Clifton Beach, each with their luxury homes. See the Twelve Apostles mountains from an impressive new angle as you head for Karbonkelberg Mountain.

Soar over historic Hout Bay and then cross the Cape Peninsula to move from one ocean to the other. See if you can tell where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Indian Ocean offshore near False Bay. Watch as the terrain below you changes from sandy beaches to rolling hills to rugged cliffs. Fly over Muizenberg Beach and keep your eye out for shadows in the water — they might just be great white sharks.

Head back toward Cape Town on the other side of Table Mountain for a different view of both the mountain and the landscape around it. Pass over the pretty vineyards of the Constantia Valley before landing once again at the V&A Waterfront helipad.

My boyfriend and I both enjoyed this experience very much! We had a private helicopter flight and were able to have a complete overview of the whole city and nearby towns. A perfect introduction to Cape Town! We were picked up by a golf cart right in the middle of V&A and quickly escorted to the helipads where the team was waiting for us and quickly signed us in. Our pilot, Paul was very friendly and informative. He gave us a lot of new information about the city and local tips which we found very helpful. The flight was very smooth and an experience we will never forget. This is a must do activity in Cape Town. Thank you Paul and Cape Town Helicopters.

Hi Peter; Thank you for this great review and we are delighted that you enjoyed the "fantastic experience". Its truly a special experience to view Cape Town and its surroundings from the air and what better way to do this than by helicopter.

Vera_L, Feb 2023
Its no two oceans, just a tour around the city Captain said that in order to see two oceans we have to fly 1 hr east on the small plane , so we paid 250$ pp just to see two oceans ( we didn’t see) we could pay 130$ pp and to go around the city ( samy as we did with this tour) it’s ripped off and not honest advertising
Response from Host, May 2023
Hello Vera; I do apologies that this experience did not live up to your expectations. Allow me clarify, the advertised "Two Oceans Scenic Flight" is indeed correct as your fly south along the Atlantic Ocean and return north bound along the Indian Ocean. I trust this will correct your views of this experience.
Great experience and company
Aaron_S, Feb 2023

A must-do while in Cape Town! My husband and I enjoyed the scenic helicopter ride. It was about 25 minutes which was just right for us.

Not over the two oceans
Deborah_B, June 2022
The operators of this tour are very efficient; however, there is a feeling of being rushed through a conveyor belt system. In and out! We were crammed into a copter with another family and the tour was a standard slow loop over Cale Town. It did not go over the two oceans nor where they meet. Very disappointed in that as it was not what was advertised. It was a nice view of Cape Town and the shore and table Mountain. Would recommend but don’t expect anything other than the standard loop. It is not over the two oceans
Response from Host, July 2022
Hello Debora. Thank you for your review, we love to hear from our guests and their experience they had on board with us. We are sorry to hear that your expectation was not met. I'm just not sure as to where your expectation of flying "over the two oceans and where they meet" come from as we do not advertise this anywhere. The flight does continue along two ocean sections though, one on the Atlantic Seaboard side and one on the False Bay side. Please refer to the flight description and highlights. We trust that overall you had an enjoyable and safe experience.
Fantastic Experience
Mark_B, Feb 2022
Handled a difficult situation on the ground well. Flight was excellent and gave a good opportunity to see the sites of the cape peninsula from the air. Would definitely recommend for those visiting the city.
Awesome ride - Terrible service
Sharneel_M, Feb 2022
The actual helicopter ride was a 5 star experience - definitely a must do in Cape Town. Our pilot Megan was friendly and accommodating and her commentary throughout the flight was very interesting. It is however so sad when you pay this much for such impolite and and rude service. Over the phone I asked if there were any food options as it was a special event for my girlfriend and I - the lady replied in an abrupt and sarcastic tone stating: "we are not a food company. we are a helicopter company." her name is Charne. Secondly our flight was booked for 12:00. At 12:25 no one had bothered to inform us of the delay. I personally did not mind the delay but it is unprofessional to not communicate this to us as we had other plans for the day. Lastly, I do not believe the helicopter and headsets are being thoroughly sanitized (if at all) as my seat was dirty and my headset was greasy with finger prints.
Brilliant time
Gordon_P, Jan 2022
From booking the service through Viator to the product delivery; helicopter ride for 4, we had a great time. The event was simple and easy to book and I would highly recommend. GP.

Thank you for your review.
Beautiful Flight+Boat afternoon.
Francesco_M, Jan 2022
Flying is always beautiful but this scenery is absolutely stunning. Everybody at the company is really friendly and prepared and the itinerary is definitely well organized. We did the 25min-flight which was beautiful but they also offer longer trips to Cape of Good Hope and back which I will totally do in the future. When we landed we have been informed that we could also join a boat trip in the bay. We did that too obviously, and we had the luck to see some whales. Awesome.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you for your review and we look forward to having you on board a flight sometime soon.
Absolutely stunning views and and an unforgettable experience
Thomas_D, Nov 2021
I booked the scenic Two Oceans helicopter flight at Cape Town Helicopters, which lasts approximately 25 minutes. To get the best possible lighting situation for pictures and videos I went for the last flight at 4 pm. The check-in at the operator center was a very pleasant and fast experience. After a short wait, I was led to a very small helicopter and greeted by Megan, the pilot of my trip. I got seated, buckled up, a headphone was put on my head, and off we went. What an amazing experience! I got a lot of interesting info’s from Megan, but the best are the incredible and unforgettable views. I had already a couple of helicopter flights in Hawaii, Grand Canyon, Ayers Rock, etc, but this was clearly the flight with the most impressive views. Most probably also caused by the small helicopter that allows an even less obstructed view and by the very experienced helicopter pilot. This flight is an absolute must on any visit to Cape Town.

majestic views, beautiful Cape Town
Rob_D, Apr 2021
We got super lucky with perfect weather, not only saw the majestic peninsula but also seagulls feeding on fish offshore, seals and dolphins from the air. Flight was well organized, on time, and highly professional.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you for your review and hopefully we will see you on board a flight again.
An excellent helicopter view

Cape Town in the sky is so different an exciting despite the fact that I have spend at least four years during my tertiary education life here in Cape Town.

Fantastic experience
Jillian, Feb 2020
My sister and me booked this tour when we arrived in Cape Town. The company were very efficient and confirmed our booking very quickly. It was very easy to walk to the helipad in Cape Town, though we stopped by the company's stand at the Waterfront and were offered a ride in a buggy! On arrival, the staff were incredibly professional and were were given a safety briefing. We were then weighed as where you sit in the helicopter depends on your weight. Paul was our pilot. He was fantastic; very informative and gave us every opportunity to see as much as possible irrespective of where was person was sat. So no-one was disadvantaged. We wore headphones and a microphone during the flight so we could speak with each other and hear him tell us about different points of interest. Seeing Cape Town and the local coastlines from the air was was money very well spent. We would highly recommend it.
