There are many picture-perfect, awe-inspiring vantage points of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, including from atop the SkyWheel, deep at sea, and the Boardwalk. But the best view of this dazzling, sunny city is from the sky high above whilst aboard a speedy helicopter. Myrtle Beach helicopter tours have risen in popularity over recent years thanks to some crafty marketing and the public’s general growing interest in air excursions. While guests here at Ocean Annie’s Resorts barely have to move a muscle to immerse themselves in amusement, feel free to explore everything that makes this seaside haven so uniquely alluring—including a surprisingly affordable helicopter tour.
The Best Myrtle Beach Helicopter Tours
Contrary to popular belief, most Myrtle Beach helicopter tours venture to specific areas, such as Broadway at the Beach, the North Shore, and Murrells Inlet. There’s enough variance that you could board nine different flights and be met with nine beautifully dissimilar experiences.

Why choose Oceanfront Helicopters? Firstly, OceanFront Helicopters boast the best reviews on Google and TripAdvisor, which goes a long way in the hospitality industry. Secondly, this Grand Strand staple offers nine unique tours to various destinations, such as peaceful Garden City, North Shore’s Apache Pier, and Myrtle Beach’s “Golden Mile.” Flights soar approximately 1,000 feet above the ocean, beaches, and towering hotels at 115 miles per hour. While it’s a visual treat to gain such a breathtaking perspective of the landscape, the vast Atlantic Ocean views will likely stick with you long after your flight is over.

Why choose Helicopter Adventures? Interestingly enough, both of these Myrtle Beach helicopter tours are home to $20 flights. As you can see, there’s little to no price difference between “OceanFront” and “Adventures.” However, Helicopter Adventures has been in the business longer. And their small fleet of scarlet choppers is a sight to behold in and of itself. This outfit specializes in all things Myrtle Beach, including the city’s many golf courses, esteemed hotels, our very own Apache Pier, and, of course, landmarks, such as Barefoot Landing, the SkyWheel, and Restaurant Row.
