“The most thrilling experience of my OBX vacation!”
I heard about these airplane adventure tours on the Outer Banks tourism website and doing one was on the top of my list for a must-do activity during my first time at the Outer Banks. I looked at a few of the companies offering these tours, and after calling Barrier Island Aviation and speaking to Stephanie, I decided that this was who I would be flying with. I had every intention on doing the basic 5-8 minute biplane tour, however, when we arrived at Barrier Island, Andy (the pilot), recommended the 10-12 minute tour of the town of Manteo and Jockey's Ridge and I am SO GLAD that he did! We got to see people shelling at Jockey's Ridge, three dolphins near the shore of Nag's Head, a school of skates, and a shipwreck. Andy pointed out things as we made a few passes over the ocean and Nag's Head Pier and I was able to take over 600 pictures. I would recommend Barrier Island Biplane Air Tours to anyone wishing to have an exciting experience that will last a lifetime!!! Upon leaving the airplane hangar, Stephanie gave us a DVD of our tour (included in the cost of the tour!) so that we could share it with friends and family as well as relive our adventure.
