It turns out The Bachelor doesn’t have a monopoly on helicopter dates. 

Three new helicopter tours through Margaret River will be flying guests to their favourite wineries and dropping them onto remote beaches for a spot of salmon fishing.

Scenic Helicopters will launch three new tours this summer: the Heli Fishing Down South, Pick a Lighthouse and Wine Tour by Air 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,” said Scenic Helicopters owner operator Jackson McLeod.

Mr McLeod said the tours gave guests the perfect combination of dramatic aerial views while still being able to get amongst it.

“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 about March to April. The 2.5-hour tour, with about 35-45 minutes of flying, combines a coastal with beach or rock fishing.

The tour costs $475 per person for bookings of two people, and $350 per person for bookings of three people.

The Pick a Lighthouse tour allows guests to visit the Cape Naturaliste or the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse. The one hour, 20 minute trip includes a scenic coastal flight to and from the Capes and costs $475 per person for bookings of two people, and $350 per person for three people.

The Wine Tour by Air allows guests to arrive in style with a tailored flight path through their favourite wineries. The tour price starts at $350 per person for two people.

The tours leave from Margaret River Airport, a five-minute drive from the township. Pick-ups from other locations are priced accordingly.
