Old City Helicopters
At Old City Helicopters, “The best seat in the house is waiting for you!” Come take the ride of your lifetime aboard one of our helicopters. Fly low and fast along the Savannah River while you enjoy a unique perspective of downtown Savannah, Old Fort Jackson, Fort Pulaski, Whitemarsh Island, the Cockspur, Tybee and Hilton Head lighthouses and much, much, more!
Tour options range from a short “Discovery Tour” to romantic sunset tours to hour-long trips to Savannah’s historic downtown, Tybee Island and Hilton Head. Trips start at just $39 per person (minimum of two people). On the “Downtown Tour,” you’ll see downtown Savannah in a whole new way. You will get views of the rail yards and the port, and, once you reach downtown Savannah, amazing views of Forsyth Park, Rail Museum, City Hall, the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, and great views of the Savannah River, River Street and the Talmadge Bridge. The 45-minute “Sunset Tour” is the only one requiring reservations in advance. It’s the ultimate romantic experience,
where you can enjoy Tybee Island and Downtown Savannah lit with the incomparable shades of a Southern sunset.
The company is also available for special trips. For example, pilots have orchestrated aerial marriage proposals, during which the groom-to-be points out his question written on the beach or on a rooftop sign. All pilots are FAA-certified, flying Robinson R44 helicopters at heights of up to 1,500 feet. Old City Helicopters is located at 1125 Bob Harmon Road, a short drive from downtown.
