There’s a lot of ways to see New York. We might be biased, but we like the view from the East River and Pier 11, where you can see the city waiting for you. For a whole different way to see New York, you need to get off the ground! Both first-time visitors to the City That Never Sleeps and seasoned veterans can appreciate a whole new way to see New York by taking a helicopter tour. Get a bird’s-eye view of this sprawling metropolis with HeliNY Helicopter Flight Services. They’re at 6 East River Piers, not even half a mile away from Seastreak’s dock!

Helicopter Tours 1

Get To the Chopper


Helicopter Flight Services offers several different tours to show off the sights of New York from the most incredible vantage. You’ll cruise above the Hudson River, past the most memorable landmarks and scenic vistas in the area. Have a look at where the Yankees play ball, and go eye to eye with Lady Liberty. For a truly special way to take in New York’s iconic skyline, book a spot on one of the sunset tours.

For the best experience, make a reservation for your flight before you visit. While walk-in tours aren’t a problem, they do have an additional fee, and you might need to wait for an available space. Reservations ensure you get the time and tour you’re looking forward to.

(Not Quite) Free Bird

Tuesdays until September 30 are a great time to take that helicopter tour you’ve always wanted. Lower Manhattan Tuesdays has fantastic, money-saving specials on Helicopter Flight Services’s exciting trips. Sign up for the promotion and head for the skies!

Helicopter Tours 3

Take a helicopter ride, then hop on a Seastreak ferry to continue your traveling adventure. Think of it as your own, personal version of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. After your aerial tour and your luxurious ferry ride, you’ll have Choppers, Catamarans, and…Camels? That third one’s up to you.


Sea you soon!
