Bajan Helicopters

Duration: Half Day

bajan helicopters

An exhilarating way to see the island. The thrill of a helicopter ride and an island tour in one!

Barbados is a beautiful and fascinating island of stark contrasts. Located in the tropics between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, the landscape on the East coast is strikingly different to that of the West coast, and both sides are definitely worth exploring. This Bajan helicopter tour is an exhilarating way to see the beauty of the island from the air, giving you a bird’s-eye perspective of the unique island geography.

Barbados is the most easterly of all the islands in the Caribbean. Unlike some of its neighbouring islands, such as St Lucia and St Vincent, Barbados is non-volcanic. The land is therefore predominantly made up of limestone coral, formed by the subduction of the South American plate colliding with the Caribbean plate. Because Barbados was previously two land masses, which have merged together over the years, the result is an island that is geologically unique, offering wonderfully diverse landscapes that range from lowlands and sloping plains and pastures to rolling hills, beautiful wooded gullies, tropical forest, mountainous ravines and pristine white sandy beaches. Primarily flat, the land slopes towards the centre of the island, where it rises gently to a central highland region − the highest point being Mount Hillaby in St Thomas, rising 1,100 feet above sea level.

Get your camera ready as highly trained, experienced pilots point out areas of interest as you fly over the lush Barbados countryside, over sugar cane fields, luxurious private residences, sugar mills, tropical rainforest, botanical gardens, miles of white sandy beaches and the Atlantic and Caribbean coasts, which are both strikingly different.

Let the beauty of the island unfold itself as you watch in awe from the sky, flying over the rugged, dramatic and less developed East Coast with its rocky shores, cliffs, unusual rock formations, rough seas and constant strong winds. Fly across the pounding white surf, viewing spectacular blow holes and sea caves on the way. In contrast, the West coast is equally beautiful with its clear, calm turquoise waters, powdery white-sand beaches, vibrant coral reefs and an abundance of tropical marine life, which are prefect for scuba diving and snorkeling.

This exhilarating, action-packed trip will show you sights that other tours cannot offer. Scout the island and take this opportunity to pick out the best spots to visit by car or boat during your holiday in Barbados.
