Helicopter Rides
 11:00 AM to 5 PM

There are only two ways to see and appreciate the natural beauty of the expansive Roanoke River Delta - by water or by air. At the NC Black Bear Festival it will be possible to get a "God's Eye View" of this natural wonder. There are over 50 miles of shoreline within 5 miles of Plymouth! This is the lower part of the largest intact hardwood bottomland east of the Mississippi River. For $20 you will experience a breathtaking 3 minute helicopter ride over Historic Downtown Plymouth, the Roanoke River Delta and see where is flows into the Albemarle Sound. Don't miss this amazing opportunity.
