From the Peter O. Knight Airport, start your helicopter adventure with an aerial view of downtown Tampa. As you fly just above the roofs of the city’s skyscrapers, see the St Petersburg Times Forum, the Florida Aquarium and the University of Tampa. Then, fly over Ybor City, a historical district north of downtown named for the local cigar manufacturer.

From Tampa, head north to Busch Gardens, where you’ll circle the amusement park’s roller coasters and view its exotic wildlife. Busch Gardens is home to majestic animals like giraffes, lions and tigers! You’ll feel like you’re on an African safari as your pilot flies over the park and points out the animals.

On your way back to Tampa, fly over Alafia River State Park. Your pilot will lower the helicopter closer to the ground so you can spot some of the park’s residents, like blue herons and alligators.

From the Alafia River, head back to the Peter O. Knight Airport, where your Tampa Bay adventure comes to an end.
