Hi , No need to book unless is christmas holidays etc. We arrived on a saturday and only had about 45 minutes to wait. Tip is to book the flight as soon as you get there. You will get a timeslot , if there is a bit of a wait you can get something to eat at the kiosk or walk over the viewing area to get your ground view. They have about 7 choppers , so they get through the line up quickly.You wont regret it , it is spectacular from the air. The pilots also give great commentary during the flight. Hope this helps. You can also get a video of the flight.

Booking in advance means you are able to skip the lines, secure a time slot you want and save time waiting.

As others have said, I wouldn't bother booking ahead, we went in peak season, and didn't have to wait at all. If you're not restricted to a particular day, not booking ahead gives you the freedom to go on a nice day as that will make a difference (we had beautiful blue skies and blue water - magical!!) Hope that helps.

We just bought ours when we arrived and it looked like most others were doing the same.

No need to book in advance unless you are going on a weekend or around some big holiday.

I assume it also depends on during which season, on which day and at which time of the day you want to go on the heli flight. We booked in advance for a certain time, were there 45 minutes before take off and skipped every line. Stand by passengers had to wait but not very long. During peak seasons I would expect a longer line though.

it depends which trip you want to go on. if its only the 15 minute one...just buy it when you arrive, there is usually a line, but having tickets in advance doesn't mean you can skip it. if you want the hour long one, then book it in advance, and you get the helicopter to yourselves if no one else has booked it. its a brilliant ride...
