Full description

Take in the beautiful island of Oahu from thrilling heights on this 30-minute helicopter tour. Your tour begins on the island's South Shore where you can see the Waikiki skyline and beaches from a new perspective.

After taking in the iconic Diamond Head, approach the magnificent Hanauma Bay and its glorious waters and cliffs. Makapu’u Point and its lighthouse will appear before you as you head down the Windward Coast, one of the world’s most scenic coastlines.

Admire the island's crystal-clear waters and white sandy beaches before you turn inland for a jaw-dropping glimpse of Mt. Olomana. Next, see the Nu’uanu Pali cliffs, carved from the volcanic fires of the island, now lined with lush rainforest.

Last, but most certainly not least, come home to the famous Pearl Harbor, home to the USS Arizona Memorial.

    Very smooth flight. We didn’t know what to expect since it was our first helicopter ride. So we were very happy that we didn’t feel scared at all! The views of Oahu from up there were truly amazing! Unforgettable! Toby was very knowledgeable and we learned a lott. We highly recommend this tour of Oahu from the air.

    Everything was well organized, pick up from the hotel and also the support before departure. However, what you cannot influence was / is the weather. So it came with our sightseeing flight over the truly beautiful landscape, over the mountains to some violent turbulence and downwind. The screaming of the person behind me did not make it any more pleasant - but after shaking it for about 1 min the rest was wonderful again.

    Best decision! Fantastic and best team!

    Super care! We had Bastian and Nici as pilots, they explained everything to us and gave lots of tips. Bastian could speak German (is German) and Nici is the boss! We felt very comfortable and the view is an absolute dream! Collection went great and on time! No waiting time, not even on site!
