There is nothing like a bird’s eye view of Hatteras Island. The folks at Burrus Flying Service will make it happen for you. They take the business serious and offer three different tours from which to choose.
The South Tour has you flying over Hatteras Inlet moving toward Ocracoke Village. You view the wild ponies, Ocracoke Lighthouse and inlet. Historic Portsmouth Island also is visible on this tour as well as views of the gorgeous Pamlico Sound.
The Cape Tour soars over Pamlico Sound towards the Canadian Hole where the windsurfers ride. You will move toward Avon and cruise over the great Atlantic past the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Cross over the infamous Diamond Shoals and travel to Hatteras Village. Call for hours.
Tour three, the North Tour, takes you over Pamlico Sound Reef towards Waves and Salvo. There are shipwrecks to see, ocean galore, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Diamond Shoals and Buxton Woods.
On most flights you will see schools of fish, and other sealife such as sharks, sea turtles, dolphins and whales.
Tour prices depend on the tour and the amount of people. Each tour needs a 2-person minimum. Tours are weather permitting, of course!
