Full description
This helicopter adventure begins with a flight over the Honolulu Harbor. You’ll see the Aloha Tower, which has been welcoming ships into the harbor for nearly a century. As you soar down the coast you’ll go past the Waikiki beaches, looping around Diamond Head. Shortly, Maunalua Bay will open in front of your eyes, revealing the island's world-renowned reefs. Makapu’u Lighthouse will greet you after the rocky cliffs before you travel up Windward Coast. After you pass Lanikai Beach, you’ll see the appropriately named Chinaman’s Hat, an iconic monument of the island. But it’s not all beach and coastline on your tour. You’ll get a chance to experience the lush tropical landscapes of the Ka’a’awa Valley, where you'll see the beautiful Sacred Falls. On your homeward journey, catch sight of the Dole Pineapple Plantation and most impressively, you’ll get an emotional flyover of Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. The top sights include: Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, Hanauma Bay, Makapu’u Lighthouse, Lanikai Beach, Chinaman’s Hat, Ka’a’awa Valley, Sacred Falls, and Dole Pineapple Plantation.

All the experience was very well organized and with all the safety matters on place. It was a beautiful and relaxing activity. My teenage daughters loved the tour. All the staff was super nice and welcoming.

Our guide was awesome and the views were beautiful. We were glad that we decided to go with the doors off and glad we brought our jackets. It was a great way to see parts of the island closed off to the public!
