Oceanfront's helicopters are maintained to the highest FAA standards, their pilots are commercially rated with many years of flight experience and their maintenance personnel are factory trained.
All tours allow take you over the beach for an amazing view of the Grand Strand plus an opportunity to see exotic marine life in their native habitat including dolphins, sea turtles, bait fish, and, at times, sharks.
