The island of Oahu is home to a wide variety of spectacular natural wonders best viewed from the sky on this royal tour. You begin with the heights of the Waikiki skyline along the sultry sands of the most famous beach in the Pacific. Oahu's crown, Diamond Head, pops into view presiding over the island known as The Gathering Place. As you pass over the ridges of the Leeward coast, Hanauma Bay appears below and gentle beaches transform into rugged volcanic cliffs, carved over millennia by sun, surf, and rain. You continue on this regal tour by flying over top of the charming Makapu’u lighthouse. The island’s Windward Coast awaits where you will see the incredible Ko’olau mountains standing watch above Lanikai Beach – often called the most marvelous beach in the world – and the offshore sandbars and coral formations that make Kaneohe Bay one of the most picturesque places on Earth. Fly past Chinaman’s Hat, and view with awe the succulent Ka’a’awa Valley before you. As the mountains approach, you fly in close to see the magnificent waters of Sacred Falls tumble over 1000 feet to the rainforest below. From there it is on to the world famous North Shore where you can see the surfers challenge the waves at Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay. You complete the circle of Oahu by turning inland and passing over the beautiful pineapple maze at the Dole Plantation. This incredible tour doesn't end until you have completed a solemn pass over Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial.

This was the next best thing to our wedding on the trip. We had to rebook due to bad weather, but soooo worth it. We went doors off, totally recommend it if your adventurous. A bit tense at beginning but a great experience. To me,,, the best way to se the island fore sure..
wear a hoddie and pants as the wind for an hour can get chilly, but make sure you get a case for your phone to take pictures... The best pictures you will ever get on your trip. 2 thumbs up
The staff, Jesi and John were all great to work with and helped us coordinate the trip. The view was amazing!
This tour was so nice! Our tour guide was very knowledgable and nice. This was the highlight of our whole 10 days in Hawaii.
Unbelievable!! I opted for doors off and definitely the right decision from a photography point of view. The Company were professional from start to finish and as there were seats for only 3 people plus the pilot of course!, so everyone has an unobstructed view. I highly recommend this tour.
An absolutely wonderful experience! Our pilot, Raph, was great and offered insight to what we were looking at but not too much information that wouldn't have been necessary. We flew doors off and is really the only way to go... we've already referred others to the tour!
A very interesting flight. As good as any other flights I have been on in the past. Enjoyed the hidden valley with the waterfall in the background. Well worth the trip.
Great way to see the island and get a perspective for land based trips you may want to do later. Would recommend doors off as it adds to the experience - only takes 5 minutes or so to get over the terror! Maybe the hour tour could be improved by going further around the north side and over Ko Olina. Our pilot was great and provided good insight into various parts of the island.
The hour long tour was worth every penny: we tour around the island, over Pearl Harbor and through mountain peaks to hidden water falls. Our pilot narrated our flight with interesting facts about the island and also gave us time to just look outside while Hawaiian music played through our headsets. I would definitely recommend this tour!
Magnificent experience, everything and more they said it would be, it was magical. So happy we did this
Do this one for sure! We were blown away by the scenery of the entire island of Oahu! You can't imagine the color and diverse landscape brought to vivid life by this areal view.... The site of the Arizona from above is chilling and very impressionable. I'm glad we did the hour and a half tour, it goes by so very fast! Our guide was also very knowledgeable and gave us an eagle eye view of all the craters, pineapple fields, beaches, water falls, cemeteries, and other landmarks of interest. Take a great camera, you will definitely want to preserve in HD, this incredible experience.
Wow.. Just Amazing.. The best thing we did.. From the moment we were picked up from our Hotel to the time we were dropped off were looked after by staff. They were friendly and couldn't do enough to help make our experience fantastic. The helicopter only seats 4 so you are guaranteed to have window seat. We chose doors off - this is a must. Loved it. Am a little scared of heights but after about 5 mins I was fine. Our pilot Chris was fantastic. We were lucky to have chosen a perfect afternoon which was fine with not much cloud so were able to get up close to sacred falls and stairway to heaven.. The views are absolutely amazing and you really get to see how Beautiful the island of Oahu really is.. If you only do one tour this it the one to do. It was well worth the money and I would recommend it to everyone. My only issue was the time went too quickly.. If you are doing a helicopter tour do the 1 hour.. you need it so everything...
Great trip! Our pilot was very experienced and knowledgeable of Hawaii. It was beautiful to see Hawaii from the air. Our photo album will be complete with this. Thanks for the great trip!!
This was a doors off or on. I was advised in advance that doors off would be windy, chilly and noisy so my boyfriend and I chose to do the doors on. We were not told that we could be paired with someone that wanted door off. The third guest had door off. Unfortunately I was sitting right behind her and got the full chilly wind. Had I known that, I would have dressed more appropriately for the cold and/or might have done the doors off as well. Pilot had his door on. My headphones were conveying garbled talk when the pilot talked so it was hard to understand what he was describing, although mine were turned on, nobody could hear me talk. Lastly, the wind is very strong and this was a small 4-person helicopter, so it was very jiggly. Be aware of the cold, wind and motion, but the views of the island were beautiful.
