Travel Writer: My Gulf Coast Air Tour Adventures
Did you know you can fly high into the sky with a bird’s eye view over 32 miles of pristine beaches in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach?
I recently enjoyed a sky-high tour of the Alabama Gulf Coast with BeachFlight Aviation aboard an open-air gyroplane. The view from the air is breathtaking, and one you will never forget. If you enjoy a fun adventure or dream of taking one, Gulf Shores has one waiting for you.
Gulf Shores Tour by Air
Owner and pilot Gary Berdeaux led the way during my Gulf Shores tour by air. You will appreciate Gary and all he brings with BeachFlight Aviation. He will make sure your experience is just right for you and one that you will talk about for years to come. Upon take off and landing, your heart will race and then you will sigh and say, “That was awesome!”
You’re probably asking, “How do I sign up for this adventure?” Keep in mind all flights are weather permitting. There are different experiences you can choose from, ranging from 20 to 60 minutes. During each tour, you may have the opportunity to take the reins and personally fly the craft. My experience was not only exhilarating, but also gave me a sense of freedom. Once you realize you are high above the beautiful landscape of Gulf Shores, you quickly forget about life on the ground below.
This experience is full of adventure and is also a great way to reconnect with nature. From above, you may see dolphins and rays and, depending on the length of your flight, the Fort Morgan Peninsula and coastlines of Orange Beach. I had never thought of connecting with nature through flight, but after this experience, I think of it often in my travels.
