After hours of looking for a bday present for my wife I found the Sussex Towers and Tall Ships Helicopter Tour. After a short safety briefing our group was escorted out to the helicopter. A professional photographer took our photo before we boarded and then we took off! The views were stunning and the pilot had great knowledge of the area, which he shared with us through our head sets. A personal highlight was seal watching! This experience was truly amazing and we couldn't help but buy our photo at the end as a memento for the day!
