Cape Town Helicopters brings the public the most professional state of the art helicopter experiences in the Western Cape, as well as being the 2015 Winner of Excellence from TripAdvisor. However from all the scenic trips that they offer, the Atlantico tour is most probably the most comprehensive, scenic marvel to view the Mother City at her essence. This incredible flight takes you along the awesome Atlantic Coastline and gives you a first hand aerial opportunity to view the exceptional key sites like the Cape Town Stadium, the four Beaches of Clifton including the famous Camps Bay, not forgetting an up close and personal view of the majestic Twelve Apostles.The flight departs from the world famous shopping and experience hub, the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront where the base for Cape Town Helicopters is, and takes off along the exquisite Atlantic coastline where the four beaches of Clifton await you to lay your eyes on their marvellous white sands, surrounded by incredible mansions that fall under the Clifton and Llundudno areas, Cape Town elite living at its best. Clifton’s fourth beach is a world famous blue flag beach, frequented by hundreds of overseas travellers and famous personalities every year. The beaches themselves are an indescribably beautiful sight from the air and offer a once in a lifetime panoramic view of the remarkable wonder that is Cape Town.The Twelve Apostles is another sight to behold on this epic journey through the awe-inspiring skies of Cape Town, named by an unknown source, although their have been many theories on where the name originates. Some Capetonians have been quoted to say that they view almost up to 17 ‘apostles’.
I suppose that this large extension to the Table Mountain range is known for its intense beauty and magnitude not for the authentic origin of its namesake. Then amongst the incredible sights to see including the life below meandering through the Mother City below, you will have the experience of viewing the impressively large Cape Town Stadium with its translucent film covering that is natural light dependent, in other words if there is a red setting sun the entire stadium appears to have a rose coloured covering, and in stormy weather it acquires an incredibly beautiful silver blue effect. Quite a remarkable structure consisting of over 68, 000 seats and standing fifteen stories high, to mention the least of its magnitude. At night it has 360 internal lamps that are switched on, and it was this that gave it the first nickname of the Stadium of Lights. Overall the Atlantico Experience from Cape Town Helicopters is a marvel not to be missed for anything.
