After a quick safety briefing with a DVD in the office where we were given a life jacket and quickly driven to the helipad to fly a Bell 206 B JetRanger.
We circled the volcano for around 20 minutes trying to understand the pertinent comments of our pilot via our microphones but I must admit that my eyes were concentrated but my old French ears were on holidays...
Flying back,our pilot attracted attention on several turtles swimming on the surface,but it was too late to see whales that come to give birth there in March and April.After flying over our resort,we flew over the manicured residential area and golf course of Jolly Harbour before landing.Definitely a tour to do,though expensive, if you are in Antigua!
