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.

A Must Do Helicopter Activity on Oahu

Recently returned from Oahu where we did an Open Door Helicopter Tour with Magnum Helicopters. Great service whereby they pick up and drop off at your accommodation. Jeff was our very capable pilot. At no time did I feel unsafe or scared. It was spectacular....More

Magnum doors off copter tour

Highly recommend. Everything went smoothly from pick-up by my hotel to drop off. Loved the helicopter doors off experience. It was very exciting! You should wear a light jacket/sweater. I wore goggles to protect my eyes, plus I felt they were more secure than sunglasses....More

Actually, goggles are a good idea...they keep the wind from sneaking in through the sides. Plus, who doesn't want to look like the Red Baron when aloft? Silk scarves are optional. Thanks for a great review.

Off door experience

Fabulous family run business who communicated promptly about the booking (I was in UK when I booked). I am nervous about flying, so I needed to psych myself for our 'doors off' experience. Safety is paramount. Strictly no items in pockets. You don't want anything...More

You would need to contact the company directly regarding that. I do not know how far out they will book tours.
