To start our experience, we entered the building and were greeted by warm and welcoming staff. After a quick yet thorough Covid safety brief we headed outside to meet our pilot and get our first view of the helicopter. After taking every photo opportunity we had, we got in, were informed on safety information and then we were off! We gained air as we flew over The Gananoque River and headed for the St. Lawrence. The view was amazing; we saw hundreds of islands, boats, the town of Gananoque and could even get a new perspective on some of the most well-known attractions in the area. Our pilot, Bill, told us about all kinds of fun facts including the history of some of the islands. Our experience with 1000 islands helicopter tours was phenomenal from a smooth ride to incredible safety standards, helicopter tours are an amazing way to discover Gananoque & The 1000 Islands.

“Flying in the helicopter was a dream come true! I never knew how clear the water was and truly how many islands there are, it felt like you could see forever. The staff was very friendly and informative, we learned different aspects and facts about the area and got a whole new perspective of Gananoque and the St Lawrence River.” -Abby

“This experience was incredible; I would recommend this to anyone who loves a great view! The ride was very smooth, and the staff was educational and informative. I learned new facts about beautiful Gananoque and the 1000 Islands. Only in a helicopter can you truly get the full image of what 1864 Islands really looks like.” -Meridith
