See Sunset Beach From A New Perspective: Above

Looking for something spectacular to do while you're at the beach? How about viewing the area from a new angle, and from an altitude of 750ft!  We did just that, and the experience was well worth the effort. 

The office and hangars for Executive Helicopters Inc, are located at a small airport close to Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach; so it was just a short drive there from Sunset Beach Bliss (about a half-hour). The staff was friendly, and very good at making sure were were feeling safe and comfortable.

Tours range from $20 to over $100. The lowest priced choice is the introduction flight, which is very short - basically, you take off, make a short loop, and then land back where you started. But the more expensive tours cover a distance of about 40 miles.
