Explore Barbuda for all its beauty, including pink sandy beaches, and indigenous animals.
What better way to take in the highlights of Antigua & Barbuda than by helicopter! The exhilaration of flying in a helicopter low over the crystal clear waters will be an experience you will never forget. You will see it all!
You will be greeted by our ground staff at our heliport just 10 minutes away from St John’s where you will be briefed on your flight before beginning your adventure. You will then board your awaiting private helicopter for a fully narrated and truly memorable Antigua & Barbuda tour.
This breath-taking tour ascends over Antigua's fabulous beaches and as your flight heads north from the heliport for the 20 minute journey across the Caribbean Sea to the awaiting island of Barbuda, you will experience the beauty of Antigua from the air. Your journey will continue across the beautiful waters of the Caribbean Sea to our sister island of Barbuda.
Just 27 miles north of Antigua and 62 miles square, at 17.5º N by 61.35º W; the island is about 14 miles long by 8 miles wide. The highest point is only about 125 ft. The population in 2001 was 1,417 of which there were 748 males and 669 females. The longest beach (on the west side) is 12 miles long. On arrival, you will witness a vista of shimmering beaches of white and pink sands lapped softly by crystal clear waters of iridescent turquoise. The beaches appear pink in some areas where minute seashells are washed up also in broken fragments; seemingly endless and fabulous, stretching unbroken and unpopulated to the horizon.
Your helicopter will land on a beach at Low Bay – a spectacular fourteen mile stretch of pink and white sand bordered on one side by the sparkling Caribbean Sea and on the other by the healing waters of the Codrington Lagoon.
Here you will be able to relax on the beach, have a drink and enjoy a lunch prepared by local chef’s consisting of fresh Barbuda fish, chicken or lobster.
Barbuda is a haven for birdwatchers and you may be able to see Osprey’s, Whistling Ducks, Tropic Birds and the Barbuda Warbler known locally as the Christmas Bird. However, the highlight has to be the magnificent Frigate Bird. Barbuda has one of the few breeding sanctuaries of the Frigate Bird in the world and you can experience this almost unique place by taking a short boat ride accompanied by an experienced guide. There you will be able to see close up and at first hand these magnificent birds known locally as “man of war’ before returning to Low Bay to continue your Barbuda beach experience.
When it is time to leave, your return helicopter journey across the Caribbean Sea to Antigua is as spectacular as your outgoing flight and ends back in Antigua with a bird's eye view of your cruise ship!
Once you land, you will re-board your waiting transport for the return journey to your hotel.
