Paradise Island Helicopter Tour

Duration: Half Day

paradise island helicopter tour

Enjoy a breathtaking aerial view of the Bahamas during your holiday in the Caribbean, as you take a short helicopter ride over part of this beautiful archipelago − Paradise Island and Nassau, the capital and the largest city in the Bahamas.

Starting from Paradise Island Heliport, your adventure starts by flying high above the Prince George Wharf, where all the large cruise ships dock whilst staying in Nassau. Enjoy a spectacular bird's eye view of this historical city, including Downtown Nassau, the Water Tower, the authentic Straw Market, Fort Charlotte and the famous ‘Fish Fry’ location (Arawak Cay) − a popular place with the locals. Next you will see the impressive lighthouse, located on the rocky western tip of Paradise Island.

Enjoy the surrounding view which includes some of the most exclusive mansions of the rich and famous, as well as the spectacular Atlantis Resort, which dominates the horizon with its impressive modern architecture. From the air, you will see the magnificent Mayan Temple and water slides, which are part of one of the largest water-themed attractions in the world, in addition to The Royal Towers, The Coral Towers and The Beach Towers.

Further along the coast, you will also be able to see the exclusive Ocean Club and Ocean Club Estates, a prestigious gated golf course community. As we travel eastbound, following the harbour channel, you will see the historic Athol Island and its protected underwater Sea Gardens, as well as the remains of the quarantine station which was historically used to exile people with Yellow Fever.

The beautiful Rose Island, with its unique centre lake, follows shortly afterwards, providing a picturesque view from the air. The lake is an old salt flat which was used to produce commercial salt before World War II. The island is a popular location for snorkelling day trips because of its coral reefs and powdery white sandy beach, and many Bahamian boat owners also escape here for the weekend.

The next landmark on this flight route is Sandy Cay, one of the Bahamas' most photographed islands. The tour will then take you westward to Salt Cay, otherwise known as Blue Lagoon Island, which is famous for its unspoilt white sandy beaches and diverse marine life, including sea turtles, barracudas and dolphins. These beautiful creatures can often be seen from the helicopter. This island was also used as film locations for Splash and Return to Blue Lagoon.

Your flight then returns along the North Shore of Paradise Island, where you can look down and admire beautiful turquoise waters and white sands, and see the golf course and homes of the rich of famous as they come into view once again. The last few minutes of the flight will bring you back along the North shore of Downtown Nassau, coming to a spectacular end as the magnificent Atlantis Resort and boat marinas come back into view on our approach to Paradise Island Heliport.

This spectacular tour is a unique and exhilarating way to view some of the Bahamas’ most stunning tropical islands from the air − a perfect addition to your Caribbean holiday.
