Helicopter tours from different vendors are offered along the waterfront. We haggled over price at one booth, and agreed when offered a private flight for the two of us for a price of a shared tour and at a good discount. We have chosen a 30 min Two Oceans Scenic Flight expecting to see what the name of the tour states. After arriving to the departure location, we were charged the full price, but received a refund after almost walking away. Not a pleasant start of the trip, but not malicious. It probably happened due to miscommunication between a person selling the trip at a booth and the main office. We received a safety briefing and were quickly seated in a chopper. My husband was in the front next to the pilot and I was at the back. The pilot spoke to us over radio, but unfortunately I only heard 10% of what he said over the noise and him speaking quickly. After we landed, hubby told me that he too could not understand pilot’s narration. We were expecting to see the point where Indian and Atlantic meet, with the pilot seemingly pointing it out (I am uncertain due to aforementioned inability to hear the pilot). The next day when on the Cape Point tour, however, our driver confirmed our suspicions that we never reached the ocean meeting point because a 30 minutes round trip is not long enough to reach it. I do not know why the tour is called Two Oceans, and looking at the tour description on the website now, I do not see it mentioned. Overall, the flight was extremely underwhelming and disappointing. We actually enjoyed and got more out of the complimentary Hop-On-Hope-Off bus tickets they have given us after the flight. The coastline is pretty, but we had a better view from the top of the Table Mountain and on the Cape Point tour.
