Return Details

Returns to original departure point
After pickup at your Waikiki hotel, transfer to the helipad at your prearranged departure time.

Climb aboard a state-of-the-art helicopter that lacks only one thing: doors. This allows you unobstructed views as you tour the island and makes for fantastic photo opportunities. Meet your expert pilot, who will narrate the experience as you fly over Oahu's landmarks. Choose standard open seating or opt for First Class seating for a more intimate experience including you and one other person.

Start by soaring over Honolulu Harbor, the Aloha Tower, Magic Island, Keehi Lagoon and Ala Moana Beach Park. Head out of the highly developed Honolulu area and towards the greener side of Oahu, which includes waterfalls, mountains and verdant valleys.

See the soft white Waimanalo Beach and the coral formations of Kaeohe Bay, striking when viewed from the air. See the Chinaman's Hat before heading to Ka'a'awa Valley, where a dozen major motion pictures have been filmed.

On the east end of the island lies Hanauma Bay, the remnants of a volcano crater that's now a marine sanctuary and popular snorkel location. See the Halona Blowhole, Sandy Beach, Makapuu Point and its lighthouse, followed by Sea Life Park.

The island's central plain is host to the world's largest agricultural maze at the Dole Plantation. View Sacred Falls, a sheer waterfall with a 1,000-foot (300-meter) drop. Finish your Oahu helicopter tour with a panoramic view of Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial.

After your helicopter lands, transfer back to your Waikiki hotel for drop-off.

Open Doors is Awesome!

First time on a helicopter and it was an amazing experience! Open doors is a must. We did the 4:00-ish time slot and the weather was perfect (with some drizzle). They said they had to cancel the earlier slots due to bad weather so we were really fortunate!

I ended up not being able to go the helicopter tour because it was booked on Wednesday not on Tuesday. I had another activity to go to. The staff was super friendly hope my refund comes fast.

Great staff and crew. Tour included flight over Waikiki and Diamond head and along the shoreline to the north shore and then through the central part of Oahu to Pearl Harbor. Great close ups of the mountains.
