Full description

Take in the beautiful island of Oahu from thrilling heights on this 30-minute helicopter tour. Select between private or shared tour options.

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.

    Incredible, one-of-a-kind experience! Our pilot was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a lot of background on the areas we flew over. The flight itself was fantastic - I did doors off and it was so fun / not scary at all! Breathtaking views of the water, the city, and the rainforest. This activity is a must do in Waikiki.

    Absolutely awesome flight!!! Riley gave us a great ride, the doors were off and it was so cool!! He communicated very well, letting us know where the famous people had houses and a lot of the beautiful areas around Maui!! Definitely worth the money!!!

    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.
