Scenic Heli Flights Over Historic Robben Island

Get a new perspective on the city’s most historic landmark

Why take the ferry to Robben Island when you can fly over this historical landmark and get the most spectacular views of Table Mountain and the city all in one? Get a bird’s eye view of this historical landmark with Cape Town Helicopters - voted Cape Town’s #1 helicopter operator on Trip Advisor.

There’s so much to do in the Mother city and so little time. There is a way to combine history, nature and culture in one 20-minute experience? On Cape Town Helicopters’ Robben Island Scenic Flight at the VA Waterfront (another landmark tick) you get a magical, bird’s-eye view of Robben Island - the political prison that housed South Africa’s political icons. 

This perspective-changing flight also gives you panoramic views of Table Mountain, Table Bay and the city. What’s more, all their pilots are qualified tour guides.

VISITORS AND LOCALS LOVE IT
Visitors have called this a “It was a thrilling experience, never to be forgotten” experience. “We felt safe and secure,” says Fernfield about Cape Town Helicopters on Trip Advisor.

And it’s not just for tourists. “As native Capetonians, this trip gave us a really nice perspective of our city and its beauty,” said Iqeraam, in his review of Cape Town Helicopters on Trip Advisor.

A MEMORABLE FAMILY EXPERIENCE
Make the Robben Island Scenic Flight a family affair -  kids under 8 fly half-price if accompanied by two full paying adults. There's also a complimentary pick up service within the CBD, so getting the family to the V&A helipad is hassle-free when you fly with Cape Town Helicopters. 

Plus, their new Airbus helicopters offer a smoother, safer ride with and a wider 270-degree view from the air. And with air conditioned cabins, soundproof headsets and voice-activated microphones, you can just sit back and enjoy the ride

Top tip: If you prefer a private flight (no other passengers), make sure you select the option to “fly exclusive” upon checkout.

Price: R2 300pp

Note: The helicopter does not land on Robben Island. With prior arrangement, landing on Robben island can be organised, but the cost rises exponentially if you want to touch down.
