Overview

See Oahu from high in the sky with the wind in your hair on this 45-minute, open-door helicopter tour. Board the helicopter and ascend to enjoy unobstructed views of the island’s beaches, waterfalls, and sights like Pearl Harbour, the world’s largest agricultural maze, and the Halona Blowhole. Learn about the sights from your pilot and take away a souvenir DVD of the flight. Transportation from select hotels included.

What to Expect

Set your departure time and get picked up at your (select) Waikiki hotel. At the helipad, board an open-door helicopter and buckle in for unobstructed bird’s eye views. Throughout the flight your pilot will provide narration through a two-way headset. Fly high with the wind in your hair over Magic Island, Keehi Lagoon, the Aloha Tower, and Ala Moana Beach Park. Soar over natural and undeveloped Oahu to see waterfalls, mountains, valleys, the coral reef of Kaeohe Bay, and more on route to Ka'a'awa Valley. Further east, overlook a volcanic crater at Hanauma Bay, a popular snorkelling destination. Next, look down as you pass Sandy Beach, the lighthouse at Makapuu Point, Sea Life Park, and hover over the world’s largest agricultural maze. Finally, fly over the 1,000-foot (300-meter) Sacred Falls and take in panoramic views of Pearl Harbour before heading back to the helipad.

Wonderful trip

Excellent ride - go with doors off for great pictures. Staff was great - pilot was great too. something to remember if you go, get an Oahu coupon book for a free Magnum picture book. The only down side was they do not take pictures...More

Actually, we're happy to take your picture in front of the helicopter. Only we'll use your camera or cell phone instead of our own. That way it's free. Thanks for posting your review.
