Come back here TO BOOK !

Think thirty minutes of epic icons – Port Arthur Historic Site, rugged capes, Tasman Island and Shipstern Buff. Get your natural high over some of the world’s tallest sea cliffs. What’s more, with club seating, everyone is assured a window seat.

Rise up through the gums at Osborne’s heli pad as the grand Tasman Peninsula reveals. Track south over Port Arthur Historic Site and out to Cape Pillar, home to towering dolerite cliffs. Spot the coast-hugging Three Capes Track down below.

Circling above Tasman Island, muse over long past lighthouse keepers of this remote outpost. Next, it’s out to Cape Raoul, once used as target practice by the British Army. See why Crescent Bay turns heads with its refined white-sand curve. Down at Shipsterns, watch for surfers drawn by heaving southern swell to this famed break.

The ultimate way to meet the Tasman Peninsula on a half hour date.

Can I use my phone while flying in the helicopter?

We presume you’re not wanting to make phone calls! Phones are perfectly fine to be used throughout the flight for taking photos, sharing images on Facebook or Snapchatting to your
heart’s content.

Do you offer concession rates?

No, sorry. Fares sold by Osborne Heli Tours are on a per seat basis.

What can I bring with me onboard the helicopter?

On your flight you will be permitted to take only your camera (or phone). All other items and bags can be left in the office for collection at the end of your flight.

Why do you ask for my body weight when I make a booking?

Our helicopters have limited payload they can lift so for the safety of all guests and crew weneed to know accurately what the total weight of our aircraft is. This also helps us in planning refuelling requirements for the helicopter. Individual guests in excess of 110kg will be required to pay for an additional seat as we will be required to restrict further seats on the aircraft.

What happens if the weather is bad?

We like to keep you informed about the weather and give you options. If a decision is made in advance about the weather you will have the option of amending your tour to a date of your choosing or cancel with a full refund.

Will I get motion sick?

Helicopters are aircraft (oh yeah?) and they do sometimes move around and experience turbulence just like any other. In saying this, they are usually a lot smoother in flight than a fixed-wing aircraft which ‘rides the bumps’. The big windows, airflow and distractingly good views keep most people feeling A-OK. We do have sick bags on board just in case though!

I am pregnant, can I fly?

We always recommend you get the advice of your doctor if you are unsure of your individual circumstances. But generally speaking, if you comfortable flying with us, we are happy to fly you.

Just keep the following in mind:

We fly to around 3000 feet so there is a slight pressure change.
Flights occasionally encounter small amounts of turbulence.
All passengers must where a lap seat belt.
All passengers must also where a lap fitting life jacket.
Steps are involved in embarking and disembarking.

I have mobility issues, can I fly with you?

We love getting everyone in the air. If you have mobility issues, please just let us know when making a booking. There are steps involved in boarding but we’ll make sure extra staff are on hand to assist with the loading process.

How does your payment process work?

When making an advance booking, we require a valid credit card to secure the booking. These details are then stored securely through our booking software provider, Rezdy. When it comes time to fly we charge the card you used in the booking process. We do this in order to minimise refunds in the event of weather cancellations.

How does carbon offsetting work?

Our offsetting program works through a partnership with CarbonNeutral – a leading Australian offsetting organisation based in Western Australia.

Helicopters generate unavoidable emissions when they fly so to reduce our net impact on the environment, we calculate the equivalent kilograms of carbon dioxide (and some other gases) generated through our operations by tracking the number of litres of fuel burned. Our partners at Carbon Neutral then plant the equivalent number of trees on unused farmland to “lock up” the carbon in new growth forest.

Do I need to reconfirm my flight?

No, there is no need to confirm. If we need to make any changes due to weather, we will get in touch with you. You will receive reminder emails from us in the lead up to your tour.

How does check in work?

Just turn up 20 minutes prior to your departure time, we will confirm your details, show you on the map where we’re flying, introduce you to your fellow passengers, safety brief and then get you into the sky!
