First time we went we had to reschedule bc of the weather but that was ok bc we still had a few days to reschedule. Might want to do this early on in your trip. Totally worth it
What a great way to see the island. The welcome we received from the staff was excellent and relaxed. The 45 minute tour was enough time to see the sights and the pilot was excellent in providing information of what sights we were heading over and also some brief history. Well worth the time and money. We drove around the island the day before which made each location relevant as we had seen it from the ground the day before. The experience of the doors off was also a highlight. Sometimes difficult to hear but very exciting.
I really wish I could remember the name of our tour guide, he was fantastic!! He was friendly and very informative. Would recommend this tour to anyone who will listen :)
A great tour for locals to enjoy. It’s great to view our home through a different perspective. Mahalo.
What a fabulous time! I was very scared but it was a great ride! Very cold so dress warm!! Had a very good pilot with well narrated ride Over the entire island. Would highly recommend magnum helicopters!!!!!
Really great experience. Staff was very friendly, Had one of the best times. If you come to Oahu, you have to try. Go with Magnum Helicopters.
Amazing experience and scary at the same time. I was front seat and in the edge. Beautiful views so many good photos and a easy and best way to see the island. Highly recommend very good staff to.
This was definitely a highlight of our vacation. So amazing to see Island from this point of you. Our pilot was an awesome tour guide and pointed out tons of stuff we would not have otherwise known.
By far one of the most exciting things we have done in Hawaii. If your looking for adventure and an opportunity to feel the wind in your hair while seeing the entire island in 45 minutes, take the flight !!! Well worth it !! Our pilots name was Evan and he was very knowledgeable about the sights you’ll encounter in this one of a kind experience!
Prompt pick up from the hotel as prmoised, very friendly staff all round and you have to go open door on the flight....what an experience.
Plus Magnum helicopters will be part of the new remake of Magnum PI so a must for any fans of the orignal...
This is a must do event. Sit in a seat that faces the outside and hold on for the ride of a life time.
I don't just give this 5 stars; I give it 6!!!!
Had an awesome time. The pilot did a lot of circular turns and dives. It was great fun. Took a lot of beautiful photos. Will not hesitate to take another doorless helicopter ride again.
This was a once in a lifetime experience for my significant other and me. The pilot Jordan was amazing, very attentive, and made us feel secure the entire trip. Would love to do this again!!
This was the highlight of my two week vacation in Hawaii. Getting to see the island from the air was awesome. Have a great flight good narration of the island was well worth the price.
Just like the opening sequence to Magnum PI, you fly over the island. Incredible views, daring heights. Evan, the pilot, was excellent. I'm profoundly deaf and heard nothing after we took off but I do know the other passengers enjoyed the commentary. Because I was unsure when Evan was going to bank as I couldn't hear him, I was always holding on tight which possibly took away some of my enjoyment level.
I look forward to watching my DVD of the trip and re-living the experience :
Overall, an experience not to be missed.
My family thought this was the best thing they did while visiting Oahu. Well worth experiencing!
I bought this tour for my husband and son to use on our trip to Hawaii. The day before the booked ride the date had to be changed due to maintenance issues. That made minor issues for the other trips we had planned in our week there. However, my son and husband absolutely loved the flight and would recommend it to everyone that visits Ohau. We had been to Pearl Harbor previously but they enjoyed being able to see so much more of that, than you can from the ground. They were impressed with every single part of the flight and very impresssed with their female pilot sorry, can remember her name. We would give this a 100 thumbs up.
I was a little apprehensive about the helicopter ride, but it was a thrill of a lifetime, and I would definitely do it again. The beautiful view from the ride was incredible. A must do for anyone visiting the beautiful island.
This was a highlight of our Hawaiian vacation. There were 4 total people on this tour so my wife and I saw in the front seat with the pilot. I was a little concerned since only a little more than have of my butt was actually in the seat. That just added to the excitement. The pilot was great and explained the whole island to us as we flew over it - yes, you fly around the whole island. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes a thrill.
