(…) We were pleasantly surprised to find several affordable tour options that could easily fit into our budget. We chose a 20 minute tour (though they have a lot of other options too) called the Alpha. In that time frame we got to view so much of Big Bear’s beauty. We saw the slopes & peaks & Sugar Loaf & Baldwin Lake–areas that though we visit this area regularly had never had the opportunity to see. (…) They have options that could fit into any budget– small or more extravagant. A true Big Bear must do!

About your guide
Why Customers Love Helicopter Big Bear
Our kids are 4 and 5 yrs old, and although this helicopter is equipped for 3 passengers, we were all able to ride at once since our children were able to share a seat. We had a great time, I highly recommend this if you’re looking for something fun, exciting and unique to do, couples or family!! (…) You won’t regret this ride – it’s awesome!
(…) Boy, were we glad that we took the longer flight. Not only did we get to see the lake but also some of the highest peeks around the lake too. Out pilot was very professional and knowledgeable. He even knew which camp and lake was the location for filming of the original Parent Trap movie (with Haley Mills and Haley Mills).
We were up in helicopter to see view of big bear. the pilot was great, pointed out landmarks and handle the helicopter great with the winds we had. Overall it was a great flight.
