Art of the Aerial


Picture-perfect views of the Pacific Coast – from the iconic Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz – are the reward for San Carolos hotel guests who have the courage (and spare cash) for a helicopter tour. Ranked the area’s best helicopter tour by CBS News, San Carlos-based Bay Aerial Helicopters is the go-to choice for photographers and videographers, thanks to its larger, more stable aircraft (Robinson R44s) and experienced local pilots with a sixth sense for a great shot. Photo flight options include the San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz, the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Napa Valley vineyards, the Sacramento River Delta, Lake Tahoe and the surrounding Sierra Mountains. The company’s one-hour tours accommodate up to three guests and provide memories to last a lifetime. Flights take off and return from the San Carlos Airport, making this an easy-to-access experience for San Carlos hotel guests.
