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.

What are you waiting for ? Book it !

I am afraid of heights. But , it was an amazing ride. You must do an open door tour. The staff was incredible and our pilot Karsen was awesome . He let us know about sites and told us about how the ride would be in certain areas. Felt comfortable. It’s an experience you must do when coming to Hawaii .
Amazing, once in a lifetime
, Jul 2021
Experience of a lifetime. Booked for a party of 7 people. Had to do 2 separate helicopters, ages 11-47, all enjoyed. Chose to do with doors off for better pictures. Would have liked to been aware of some of the advantages/disadvantages prior. Was a windy day and those that were in the back seat had trouble keeping headsets on due to wind. Our pilot Karsen was very knowledgeable of the area and pointed out great spots that are only viewed from the sky. Very happy we did the adventure.

Amazing and beautiful way to see Hawaii!!

It was amazing!! Thank you for a wonderful way to see Hawaii!! We will do this again with the kids and grandkids!!
Worth the Money!!!!
, Jul 2021
Worth every dime! Carson was a fantastic pilot! He was very informative and made us feel safe. Any time there was turbulence (wasn’t bad), he would prepare us by saying “over this mountain it will get a bit bumpy, but that’s normal.” Really made us feel safe. Absolutely breathtaking. It was truly a magical experience!!! You see EVERYTHING!!!!
Spectacular and great for our young (8 and 10) kids.
, Jul 2021
Phenomenal! We were worried that our kids would be too young at 8 and q0 but Sarah our pilot immediately put them at ease. They loved it and were able to put the island together in their minds in a new way.
Rainbow tours is the perfect name for this business!

Amazing flight. The crew and captain were extremely professional, friendly and knew what they were doing. Felt really comfortable even though it was my first time on a helicopter. The views were amazing. This is a definite must do. You’ll realize how much of the island is inaccessible to humans which is a good thing I guess 🌝. We flew through almost 5 rainbows!!!
