Lyme Regis and Jurassic Coast Helicopter Sightseeing Tour

Fly over South Devon's Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast

Helicopter Experience Days: There can be no better way to explore the spectacular sights of South Devon’s Jurassic Coast and Lyme Regis than with this sensational helicopter sightseeing tour, the perfect experience gift for anyone with a head for heights!

During this adrenaline-pumping activity you will enjoy a scenic flight of approximately 30 minutes and 50 miles over one of Britain's most beautiful coastal areas as you enjoy views that truly will take your breath away. Flying in a helicopter is an experience you will never forget, and from the moment you climb aboard one of these awesome choppers, hear the exciting whirr of the blades and begin the thrilling near vertical take-off, you’ll understand why this is seen as the ultimate mode of transport. The tour will first fly you over the wonderful, gently rolling countryside of South Devon before you arrive at Lyme Regis; you will then fly along the famous cliffs of the Jurassic Coast, and follow the River Sid past Seaton, Sidmouth and then Budleigh Salterton for some more jaw-dropping panoramic views. After flying over Exmouth, you’ll then follow the picturesque Otter River to Ottery St Mary. This hugely enjoyable helicopter tour is undoubtedly the best way to see South Devon in all its stunning glory; exploring this distinctive area by foot is special enough, but seeing this dramatic area of coastline from a bird’s eye view is something else. Just don’t forget to bring your camera, as there will be plenty of chances to take pictures while you’re in the air!

This Lyme Regis and Jurassic Coast Helicopter Sightseeing Tour is an exceptional experience and one that you will remember forever – so take to the skies today and don’t look back!

Lovely sunny day for the flight. Ground crew welcoming and kept us informed. Lovely photo taken by the helicopter. Paul our pilot was chatty, kept us informed and where we were along the coast and answered all our questions. Superb views of the coast, towns and countryside. One small problem for me, I love taking photos and my seat back middle wasn’t the best for that.

Good but could have been better.

25/03/18. Was a great experience. Ground crew were superb and communication about our flight, meeting times, and on the day updates were very professional. Sadly, that ended when we got into the helicopter. Pilot didn't even introduce himself or give any information throughout the flight through our headsets, which were turned off the entire flight so I couldn't even talk to my wife who was in the front seat. Maybe there was a reason for this but we were not informed. Even though the flight information did say we would be flying over the Jurassic coastline, we were a little disappointed that when we reached it we flew 1500 feet directly above it and not a little way out so we could look across and actually see the cliffs etc. That said, it was very enjoyable and a great way to view the Devon countryside.

This is probably the best experience of my life! It was beautiful seeing the stunning Jurassic coastline from the air. I thoroughly recommend this trip. And well worth paying the extra for the 30 mins flight, sitting up front with the pilot and having the professional photograph taken.

Very enjoyable experience

Had a good flight with informative pilot. Unfortunately our microphone headsets didn't work very well (we could hear but could not be heard) so it was difficult to ask questions, but another of the passengers did ask a lot of questions. Being on a window seat or in the co-pilot seat (much the best) is much better than being in one of the middle seats.

lyme regis jurassic coast helicopter ride

Absolutely fantastic, we thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone. We are hoping to have another one next year, but will try cornwall coast lineas we have done this one. Pilot was brilliant as were all the ground staff. Just a little hard to find the field but otherwise brilliant
