Living in Santa Cruz County, most of us see the ocean daily. Whether it be through the windows of our vehicles, on a bike ride, or during a family beach day…but have you ever wondered what it would be like to see our beautiful coastline from above?
Specialized Helicopters, located at the Watsonville Airport offers daily helicopter tours of the Monterey Bay. This staff of highly trained and experienced pilots will take you up above your home town and give you not only an awesome tour, but a few local history lessons that you might not have known. Being able to see Santa Cruz County from above will give you a brand new perspective of the beauty the each and every one of us calls home.
Specialized Helicopters offers 5 main tours within the Monterey Bay. The first is a 10 Minute ride they have titled “Sky High”. This is the perfect ride for those of you who are wanting to quickly cross “Fly in a helicopter” off of your bucket list, or if you are wanting to bring a couple young kids along that have never been in a helicopter before. Starting at $33 a person, “Sky High” takes you from Watsonville, out over the ocean, and back. Next on the list is my personal favorite, the “Santa Cruz” tour. This flight takes you from Watsonville, out to the coastline and all the way down to the Santa Cruz lighthouse and back.It is a 20 minute ride that anyone can enjoy. The perfect length to give you a nice helicopter fix and short enough to do on your lunch break if you time it right. Oh and don’t forget to bring a camera! Shots from up above are spectacular, and you are going to have to prove to all of your friends and family that you went.
Specialized Helicopters also offers longer tours out to Carmel and Big Sur, as well as a “Wine Tasting Adventure” tour that takes you out into the Salinas mountains.
