St Lucia Helicopter
A ride with St Lucia Helicopter from the Hewanorra International Airport in Vieux Fort up to the George F.L. Charles Airport in Castries will not only cut your commute time from an hour or so down to 15 – 20 minutes, but it will also afford you some absolutely breathtaking views of St Lucia as you will generally be flown right across the center of the island.
As I write this post St Lucia Helicopters is the only commercial helicopter service on St Lucia and as a result they are always in demand with their St Lucia Helicopter transfers from airport to airport being their most popular service. The St Lucia Helicopter team also offer sight seeing tours and they are also on call for aerial photography.
You can also use St Lucia Helicopters if you are staying at Anse Chastanet of Jade Mountain in Soufriere as the resort has its own helipad.
While riding the St Lucia Helicopter both when you arrive as well as when you depart St Lucia, if you must pick one way only my recommendation would be for you to take the ride when you are leaving St Lucia. This way your parting memories of the island will be truly from lofty heights and the views and vistas you’ll enjoy en route to the big airport are simply spectacular.
Oh, and if you are curious about how I got the picture above of this St Lucia Helicopter flying over Marigot Bay well I’m lucky enough to be the Official St Lucia Helicopter photographer so when they needed pictures for their website and brochure I had the pleasure of having some fun working up in the air from one chopper shooting photos of another chopper in flight.
And if you plan to use the chopper while in St Lucia I recommend that you purchase a St Lucia Discount Card as it will save you 10% off your fare. In fact people who use the discount card to save on their chopper fare often end up taking the chopper both when they arrive and when they depart because of the size of their 10% savings. And in addition to this you get so many other cool savings with the St Lucia Discount Card…
