Advice for visitors

Be sure to check the weather conditions in advance before making a booking online to secure your spot. If the weather is not looking ideal, it is always best to call first before making your way to the helipad. If the flight is going ahead, arrive 15 minutes before take-off at the V&A Waterfront office. The flight is roughly 20-30 minutes and you also get a complimentary hop-on, hop-off, City Sightseeing Red Bus tour ticket which is definitely worth using!
