Helicopter Tour Is Cool Above Malibu
It’s beginning to look a lot like summer everywhere we fly in Los Angeles. The warming weather is especially enticing at the beach and there is no better beach to observe from our aerial tour than those up and down the coast that are a part of Malibu. From south to north there are 23 miles of coastline that are Malibu. The Malibu Colony and its lagoon are where many will seek the sea and catch up on rays and Vitamin D (oh so important) so they can look their very best in this season’s swimsuits and beach wear. A good point break here means lots of surfers. We remind our private Los Angeles tour passengers who are greatly enjoying the low flight over the bay (Santa Monica Bay) that the Malibu Colony was where early Hollywood stars had their beach homes (as current Hollywood stars still do) and that the drive from the studios to the beach took hours in the early part of the last century. Funny, there are days now when it takes hours to get from Hollywood to Malibu…even in a Ferrari. Those travel hours today can be productive though with a cellphone making business calls possible and routine even with the top down. Flipper’s agent does not want to be late to meet with his client.
