Admire all of Cape Town from the sky when you glide past pristine coastal views of the Peninsula, and over the colourful Cape Town City Bowl

You will truly uncover Cape Town’s multi-faceted character on the Three Bays Tour. Starting at the V&A Waterfront, this tour takes you over the pristine outer Cape Peninsula, then along Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles mountain range.

You’ll see the Atlantic Seaboard’s unspoilt white beaches unfold in front of your eyes as you fly along coastal Clifton, Camps Bay and Llandudno and, if you’re lucky, whales may welcome you en-route to Hout Bay’s lush greenery and aquamarine waters.

Then, your flight will head inland, over Cape Town’s southern suburbs before the glistening False Bay appears on the other edge of the Peninsula. Here you will get a chance to view Fish Hoek and Muizenberg from above. On the equally spectacular return flight along the Southern Seaboard, you’ll get to take in the sky-high view of Cape Town’s bustling City Bowl before landing back at NAC Helicopters at the V&A Waterfront.

Camps Bay

Just beyond Clifton’s Fourth Beach lies the glamorous yet laid-back suburb of Camps Bay. The palm tree-lined boulevards extend to white beaches and vivid waters opposite a bustling strip of world-class restaurants, cafès and clubs looking out over the sea.

Twelve Apostles

Towering above the Atlantic Ocean, the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range extends from Table Mountain, above Camps Bay to Llandudno. While it’s technically the back of Table Mountain, it’s also one of the most scenic stretches of coastline in the world.

HL—Hout-Bay@2X-min

Hout Bay

Hout Bay’s dense green forests, pristine bay and old-school harbour make it one of the most picturesque seaside towns in the Cape. And what’s more – if you look to the horizon during whale season you may well spot whales and their calves frolicking off the shallows’ edge.

Three-Bays—HL—Noordhoek@2x-min

Noordhoek

Rimmed by unbounded beaches, fynbos and the picturesque Chapman’s Peak landscape, Noordhoek is largely unspoilt by commercial development. Look out for the SS Kakapo shipwreck, 8kms of pristine white Long Beach, and Slangkop Lighthouse near Kommetjie.

Three-Bays—HL—Muizenberg@2x-min

Muizenberg

One of the jewels of the False Bay coast, the beach town of Muizenberg is best known for its colourful beach huts, historical sites and architecture, and laid-back culture. The town is cradled between a fine beach on the one side – popular with surfers and bathers alike – and the Muizenberg Peak mountains on the other.

Cape-Point—HL—Constantia-min

Constantia

The rolling hills of Constantia are home to many of the world’s finest wineries, and boast some of the oldest wine routes in the Cape. Historic buildings and a patchwork of green vineyards make for spectacular aerial sightseeing over this leafy southern suburb.
