Gin and Tonic on the mountain

Rates subject to increase on 1 September 2024

Fly to the most unique place in the Peninsula to enjoy a Gin and Tonic or similar. Cape Town Helicopters will fly you from the V and A Waterfront to Baskloof Nature reserve above Misty Cliffs. Here you will spend an hour enjoying a drink in the fynbos overlooking the crayfish factory. Your pilot will set out a custom-made gin bar for you to select various options of our partner Inverroche Gin. Perhaps add some fynbos to add some flavour and colour. You can sit on our deck or take a small walk to the viewing sites that overlook Platberg and Scarborough. Once the hour is up you depart back by helicopter to the V and A heli pad. We’re looking forward to welcoming you and we encourage you to bring along the following: sun hat, sunglasses, sunblock, closed-toed shoes, a fully charged phone for pictures, a light jersey and a sense of adventure.

Important Information

Check In Time

Please check in 20-30 minutes prior to your scheduled Take Off time. This will allow enough time for us to take weights, conduct a safety briefing and issue tickets. After this has been conducted you can relax on the viewing deck and take some great pre-flight pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.

Best Pictures

For the best pictures we recommend that you wear darker coloured clothing as whites reflect off the inside of the windows and can spoil that epic shot.


Please be aware that seating allocation on all our sharing flights are done according to weight and balance which is done during your safety briefing and ticketing. Should you want to choose your own seats you can book an Exclusive Flight at the cost of one additional seat and you are guaranteed the ‘best seats in the house.


All flights are weather dependent. Should the conditions not be ideal for flying we will try to reschedule to the next best available flight window. Note that the temperature in the sky is exactly the same as on the ground in case you are wondering what to wear.
