Tour description provided by Viator

See two oceans in one helicopter trip on a scenic flight from Cape Town! On a route around beautiful Table Mountain, glide along the Atlantic coastline and cross the Cape Peninsula to reach the waters of the Indian Ocean. See contrasting landscapes around the different stretches of coast, from the craggy peaks of Signal Hill to the sandy shores and lavish houses at Camps Bay.

Leave the V&A Waterfront helipad and start your 360-degree circuit of Table Mountain, easily Cape Town’s most iconic sight, and then soar above Cape Town Stadium, home of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Follow the Atlantic coastline, passing Signal Hill before flying over impressive houses at Camps Bay and Clifton Beach. Then pass the imposing Twelve Apostles mountain range as you glide through the skies to Karbonkelberg Mountain.

While listening to fascinating commentary from your pilot, fly over historic Hout Bay with its busy harbor and beach, and then cross over the Cape Peninsula. Here you’ll see the Atlantic Ocean colliding with the Indian Ocean in the waters around False Bay. Enjoy great views of the contrasting landscapes, from craggy mountain peaks to white sandy beaches lapped by dazzling blue waves. As you pass over this gorgeous stretch of coastline, fly over Muizenberg Beach, keeping an eye out for the distinctive shadow of the great white sharks lurking off the shore!

Curving back around Table Mountain, watch the landscape change again as you glide above Cape Town’s leafy southern suburbs that stretch out toward the vineyards of Constantia Valley. Before touching down, take in Cape Town’s urban cityscape, weaving past downtown skyscrapers and modern high-rises. Landing back at the V&A Waterfront, your journey is complete!
