uShaka takes to the skies this summer
uShaka takes to the skies this summer (in partnership with Legend Aviation) with the launch of their helicopter sightseeing service from the new heliport at uShaka Marine World. A helicopter is based at the heliport seven days a week from 9am to 5.30pm. Flights are weather permitting, understandably.
There are a variety of flights with flips ranging from a quarter of an hour or up and down the Dolphin Coast from a price of R290 per person. You will get to watch ships enter the harbour or have a look at the new beach promenade from a new perspective …
If you need to make a dash to King Shaka Airport then hire the helicopter for R1200 per person – you’ll arrive in style and won’t have to worry about finding a parking spot!
