Hover Boston, operated by Tuckamore Aviation, is the only helicopter service in Boston to offer the ultimate aerial experience. With the doors removed and passengers secured using a secondary safety system, you can’t help but experience the most panoramic views Boston has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a thrill or a photo enthusiast wanting the perfect shot, this adventure will exceed all your expectations.
Experience spectacular sights of the world-famous and history-rich hub of the Northeast suspended 1000ft above the city streets! You’ll have the opportunity to hover over Fenway Park, the Zakim Bridge and Boston Common while orbiting downtown to get the best angles. With the open cockpit design of the Airbus helicopter, you and your friends will find yourselves taking selfies with the Prudential and John Hancock skyscrapers as a backdrop!
Looking for more scenic New England views? Hover Boston also offers extended lighthouse flights. Many of Boston’s Lighthouses were built on remote islands making them challenging to access, but with our unique AS350-B3 helicopter equipped to fly over water you can enjoy unparalleled access to Graves Light and Boston Light. Elevate your experience and see both downtown and the harbor lighthouses!
We have two different doors-off photo flight options available around Boston:
