Sanibel Island Vacation Done Right
With such a beautiful vacation, it is important to make the most of it. If you want to see as much of Sanibel Island as you possibly can, the best way to do it is from a helicopter. Aerial views from a helicopter are perfect for photo opportunities. They are especially notorious for putting ear-to-ear grins on children’s faces!
Helicopters not only allow you to get breathtaking pictures of where you are staying for the duration of your trip, but you also get to fly over any traffic or security lines that you would otherwise experience through commercial airports and driving.
Not only do you get to spend more time enjoying your vacation with helicopters, but you also get more sightseeing opportunities. Sanibel Island and Captiva charge $5 per hour for parking. They do not allow any roadside parking without a permit, which also costs extra. This can put a damper on the amount of sightseeing you can do. Helicopters allow you to see everything from a bird’s eye view without having to pay additional for parking!
Also, helicopters are more affordable than people would typically imagine. Since we charge a flat rate for the aircraft, splitting the cost between passengers can make the experience more affordable for all. We, at FairLifts, also have access to an impressive network of aircraft and operators. This makes it easier for us to manage the logistics of your helicopter charter while maintaining your budget. You will know exactly what to expect when from the moment you arrive.
