This was so much fun, perfect blue skies. It was windy for the other options, so we took the helicopter. Seeing the Wright brothers/First flight from the air was great.

Hi there, The Discovery Flight is approx. 12 minutes long, it's enough time to get out to the ocean and circle Jennette's Pier, maybe catch a glimpse of a dolphin or two!
