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.

Unbelievable

I was very hesitant booking the open door helicopter. My husband, 15 and 10 year old were super keen to do this. We chose the 50 min island tour. Jordan was our pilot. He was fantastic. He could tell I was a little on edge...More

Just breathtaking!!

I have been to Honolulu three times and decided to do something different. This was by far one of the best thing to do. The Staff and crew were professional. The view..Spectacular!

Ride Of My Life!

This was certainly one of the most unforgettable experiences of my entire life. Pilot Jim made it even more enjoyable with his great sense of humour. If there's only one thing you're going to do in Hawaii, this is the one!
