Approach A: Start helicopter, fly over ocean, drop pax, get filmed, get reported to FAA for investigation, impress all the local professional operators who do this for a living.

Approach B: Call the FSDO, explain plan and safety measures (task experience and recce of drop site), drop pax, get filmed, FAA handle phone calls with full knowledge of the activity.

Unless you're an actual drama queen who loves the attention (you know who you are), then some PPP to prevent PPP never hurt anybody. There is a website for people who think the rules don't apply to them, its membership is always very popular...
