Xander - Great Trip November, 2018

Totally worth it! Had a very friendly pilot, Howard who was a great tour guide too, he was very informative. Would recommend to any type of traveller (local/international).

Stephanie - Amazing Experience November, 2018

My husband and I wanted to see Cape Town from above so we booked a helicopter tour. Ryan was our pilot and he was great! The views were beautiful and he gave us fun tidbit information while in the air! Would definitely do it again !!

Lisanne - Hopper Flight with Pilot Werner November, 2018

This morning we had a wonderful and amazing helicopter flight! We had the short flight from 12-minutes but it was wonderful. The pilot Werner told a lot about Cape Town and we also saw two Whales, luckily! It was an experience of a lifetime, thank you, Werner!

Nick - Well worth doing November, 2018

An impromptu decision which Cape Town Helicopters organised very easily and quickly the evening before. We did the Hopper flight with our friendly and professional pilot Anel, who coupled obvious flying expertise with the flexibility to offer either interesting tourist information and/or technical detail too if we wanted it. We were interested in both and she was excellent. Amazing views and a super addition to a Waterfront visit.

Jori C - Top class service and great flight November, 2018

I rarely rate things on TripAdvisor but for Herman and his crew, it was no problem to go the extra mile. We had the hopper flight booked for a group of thirty people, but the weather was dreadful. Herman adviced (and convinced us of) a different time slot on a different day to get the best possible experience. Then he did everything to facilitate our group in our limited time. Spectacular views, skilled and friendly pilots and some excellent pictures of the whole experience. Happy to have chosen Cape Town Helicopters for one of the high points of our trip.

Keep these in mind

Check In Time

Please check in 20-30 minutes prior to your scheduled Take Off time. This will allow enough time for us to take weights, conduct a safety briefing and issue tickets. After this has been conducted you can relax on the viewing deck and take some great pre-flight pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.


Please be aware that seating allocation on all our sharing flights are done according to weight and balance which is done during your safety briefing and ticketing. Should you want to choose your own seats you can book an Exclusive Flight at the cost of one additional seat and you are guaranteed the ‘best seats in the house.

Best Pictures

For the best pictures we recommend that you wear darker coloured clothing as whites reflect off the inside of the windows and can spoil that epic shot. We do offer In Flight Video packages where we record you and your flight, including audio, and put it on a USB for you. Note that not all aircraft has this system available so please requests this on check in.


All flights are weather dependent. Should the conditions not be ideal for flying we will try to reschedule to the next best available flight window. Note that the temperature in the sky is exactly the same as on the ground in case you are wondering what to wear.
