Departing from the South Lake Tahoe airport, you will head north to the lake. Upon reaching the shoreline, you'll head west towards Camp Richardson and the fabulous Emerald Bay. After circling all of Emerald Bay, your flight will continue northward along the western shore of Lake Tahoe past Meeks Bay and Tahoe City. You will then take a turn to the east and fly past Kings Beach, Incline Village, and the favorite Lake Tahoe hangout of the Rat Pack.. The Cal-Neva Resort. Continuing around and following the shoreline to the south, you be afforded vistas of Cave Rock, Zephyr Cove, and the casinos at Stateline. Your flight will finally bring you back to the airport at South Lake Tahoe.

Your helicopter will be a Robinson R44 Raven II or a Bell 206 LongRanger. These are some of the safest and quietest helicopters in the industry. Each copter comes equipped with leather seats and Active Noise Reduction headsets, so you can enjoy your flight in comfort without any unnecessary noise.

Depending on the helicopter being flown, passenger count will be 3, 4, 5 or 6 passengers and the pilot. All seating allows for EVERY seat to be a window seat (the exception is one seat of 6- passenger seating).
