Scenic Helicopters is taking it up a notch with three new tours

  • Written by Janine Pittaway

If a visit to Margaret River wasn't already exciting enough, Scenic Helicopters is taking it up a notch with three new tours launching this summer.

Owner operator Jackson McLeod will take guests on a ride of a lifetime with his new Heli Fishing Down South, Pick a Lighthouse and Wine Tour by Air experiences.

Jackson said the new tours would make the most of the Margaret River region's natural diversity, and reflected the increasing customer demand for interactive tour experiences.

“We're blessed with an amazing coastline from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin, plus magnificent wineries for tastings and long lunches, with the bonus of an abundance of salmon running in the pristine Indian and Southern Ocean waters in March and April.

“Over the past few years I've noticed clients are looking for more interactive experiences.

“While they love the dramatic aerial views of the Margaret River region, they also increasingly want to get amongst it, which suits me! 

“When we fly with the doors off or land in a remote location only accessible by helicopter they are blown away by the experience,” he said.

The Heli Fishing Down South tour is available during salmon season from approximately March to April. Guests can bring along their favourite lure or Scenic can supply all the gear. The tour combines a fantastic coastal flight with the thrill of beach or rock fishing. There is approximately 35 to 45 minutes of flying time and the tour is approximately 2.5 hours. Tour pricing is $475 per person for bookings of two people, and $350 per person for bookings of three people.

Pick a Lighthouse allows guests to select either the Cape Naturaliste or the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse to visit. Each offers the most amazing views of these stunning lighthouse locations with the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge as a backdrop. The trip includes a beautiful scenic coastal flight to and from the Capes. Flying time is 45 minutes and the tour time is 1 hour 20 minutes. The tour costs $475 per person for bookings of 2 people, and $350 per person for 3 people.

Why drive around the Margaret River wineries when you can fly? The Wine Tour by Air allows guests to arrive in style with a tailored flight path through their favourite wineries. Guests can enjoy a leisurely lunch, stroll around gorgeous gardens or take a private wine tasting – or all of the above! Scenic is also happy to create an itinerary for you. The tour price starts at $350 per person for 2 people and is dependent on the flight time, landing arrangements and selected inclusions.

These new tours compliment Scenic Helicopters' existing Taste of Flight, Margaret River From Above, Romance, Cape to Cape and Regional Eye Openers tours.

Scenic Helicopters tour pricing is based on departure from Margaret River Airport, located just 5 minutes drive from the township. Pick ups are also possible from other locations and this will be priced accordingly.

Scenic Helicopters runs Margaret River tours and customised flights in Australia's south west from October to April, and Broome flights and charters in the north west from May to September each year.

Jackson McLeod and his pilots are highly trained and operate Robinson R44 four-seater light helicopters, the perfect touring helicopter.

Scenic Helicopters is a subsidiary of and operated by Ansett Aviation Pty Ltd – Air Operators Certificate (AOC) #: CASA.TAAOC.0597 Ref 1-9DDU.
