I would highly recommend taking no less than the 30 minute Tango Tour (…) This tour gave us a great lower level view of Big Bear Lake, the Holcomb Valley and we could see the Lucerne Valley too. We turned back over the airport and then over Snow Summit and then down into the valley creek bed at the West end of Big Bear dam. We had a great view of the hidden waterfall and then a low level cruise back to runway 26. (…)
Extensive Breathtaking Views of Big Bear In 30 Minutes
Join us on Tour Tango for two trips across Big Bear Lake including an epic steep climb to the top of Butler Peak, with panoramic views into the historic and beautiful Holcomb Valley and more! Your course continues along a ridge line offering breathtaking views to the right of the entire Big Bear Lake and vistas to the left of the Santa Ana Canyon and San Gorgonio Peak. We’ll then head to Bear Creek Canyon with the towering canyon peaks and a hidden waterfall below. Later you fly to Big Bear Lake Dam and the Highway 18 Bridge which spans across the mouth of the Bear Creek Canyon. We’re not done yet as to get back to base, we’ll have to take a second flight over Big Bear Lake along the south shore featuring marinas, bays, beaches, and popular lodges. It’s a real ride to remember!

About your guide
Why Customers Love Helicopter Big Bear
We had the 30-min tour and OMG this was simply mind blowing!! (…) We had so much fun and it flew by so fast!! This was a birthday surprise from my boyfriend and totally recommend it to anyone. What an experience!!!!
(…)This was definitely one of the coolest recreational adventures I’ve found myself on and I’m so stoked we got to have a private experience at an affordable and fair price! They even shuttle you from the front desk to the plane (blankets provided) and get you up in the air in literally no time at all. (…) I will certainly be back in the future.
Great time with experienced pilot. The kids loved it, the aerial views over big Bear lake were breathtaking. I would definitely recommend, five stars
