Climb aboard your helicopter and enjoy your pre-selected choice of a “doors on” or “doors off” flight as you take off above this tropical Hawaiian island. Cruise above some of Oahu’s most famous landmarks, starting with a bird’s eye view of the Honolulu Harbor and a flight over the island’s south shore.

You’ll then zoom above the famous Diamond Head crater before proceeding above the clear waters of Manalua Bay and the vibrant reefs of Hanauma Bay on Oahu’s eastern shore. From there you’ll pass near the tiny lighthouse above the cliffs of Makapu’u and then trace the Ko’olau Mountains heading toward Lanikai Beach and the “Chinamans’ Hat.” Continuing your scenic ride, travel up into Ka'a'awa Valley and get a panoramic look at Sacred Falls, Oahu’s tallest waterfall.

Finish up your breathtaking helicopter experience by cruise over to the iconic Pearl Harbor site, where you’ll get an up-close look at the iconic USS Arizona Memorial before heading back to the airport.

Awesome adventure
, Oct 2021
Excellent tour! Our pilot, Matt, was very knowledgeable about the different sights. I especially enjoyed the waterfall. The only down side was that I booked a private tour so the help was small and the high winds made the ride kind of choppy. Overall, I would definitely do it again.

We had a great time and saw well over a dozen rainbows! Sara was our pilot and she was very knowledgeable and definitely made the tour better! Seeing Hawaii above is Devine and really shows the diversity and beauty of each side of the island.
Lifetime adventure.

Watching the island from the helicopter was amazing! From the minute we arrived until we were assisted to get in/out the helicopter we were treated by a team of very caring and professional people. We were very happy we booked with this company. Would do it again in a heart beat. Worth every penny! MAHALO 💞

Seeing the island from a different perspective was just amazing! Pilot Bastian for sure made the experience a more pleasant one with his narrating.
Worth it
, Sep 2021
Having the doors off was not scary but it was definitely windy. They suggested and we did wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt. We appreciated they gave us phone cases to wear around our neck that allowed us to still take photos and not loose the phone. We definitely got to see a lot more than we had been seeing on the ground. At the end they did offer us a video of our experience - we passed given how much we had already paid for the experience.
Breathtaking & Memorable Tour of Oahu!
, Sep 2021
I surprised my family with the doors off private tour. Safety video, personal affects locked up & phone pocket lanyards issued, we hopped aboard a golf cart & driven to the helipad. After a few pics, we boarded, were strapped in & outfitted with headphones & mics allowing us to communicate during our flight. Our first time in a helicopter, Nicole, our pilot (who also happens to be the owner) immediately put us at ease, asking us about ourselves & our trip. As we prepared to take off. In the air, it was far less windy & much smoother that I thought it would be despite a bit of weather. As we flew over the beautiful island, Nicole pointed out sights and points of interest, shared interesting info about each & was happy to answer all of our questions along the way. I highly recommend this tour. If you've never been in a helicopter or even if you have, just do it! It's the best wat to see the island! While it was a big splurge for us it was SO worth it to see my teenagers excitement & to have this incredible memory none of us will ever forget. MAHALO, Nicole & everyone at Rainbow Helicopter Tours for an incredible experience. We'll see you again next time we visit Hawaii!

Seats very uncomfortable! Passengers who seat on right side can see only ocean side, but most interesting view on left side!
The Best Experience
, Sep 2021
The Best experience of my life. We did the door off private tour and had an adventurous experience. It does get windy up there so for those with neck problems pls wear a jacket. The pilot was great and explained every location as we passed by… I recommend to try this helicopter ride 100%. It’s a lifetime experience flying over heaven …. Hawaii is beyond beautiful
