"Fun on the water" helicopter tour of Portsmouth Harbour

We did the first of our new Portsmouth Harbour helicopter tours yesterday. Was fantastic weather for it - not a cloud in the sky, no wind, sea was like a mill-pond. Here's a few piccies. Unfortunately I only had my iphone so the quality isn't great. This was my first time up in a chopper - will certainly be going up again soon!

These trips are only 49 per person, and can be booked from our website (www.funonthewater.biz) or by ringing us on 02392 528447 (note our office is closed til Monday). For Ribnet members, I'll throw in a free "Forts Blast" on one of our 9m RIBs as well so you get to see the Harbour and the Forts from two very different perspectives. To buy with this offer simply ring us and quite RIBNET offer.

1: The helicopter
2: North of the Harbour. Trafalgar Wharf on the top left, Port Solent on the right
3: Torpedo testing lake
4: The Dockyard
5: HMS Victory

Any chance the helicopter can come over and pick me up? If i'm in the area in the future i'll definately use this offer though, I need my weekly fix on the water, with the heli being an added bonus!
