As long as you are not afraid to sit next to an open door in a helicopter, this is THE ride you must take. Wind swirling around you, hair going all directions and at times a little chilly. Still the only way to see the island from above. No reflections from dirty windows for fantastic photo shoots, Just direct views and did I mention you can get wet when it rains, but who cares. Hanging in your seat while the pilot makes a sharp turn and there is nothing between you, your camera and the ground. Just awesome.
This was a fantastic trip. Our pilot was very knowledgeable and obviously loved his island home. He showed us parts of the island we would not have otherwise seen. Would highly recommend this company to anyone and especially the open door helicopter tour.
We were picked up from the hotel on time and dropped back after the flight.
Great. Thank You.
The pilot we had that day was AWESOME !!!! As an ex ARMY helicopter crew chief on the same type of aircraft in Nam I found he was smooth and in total control of bird. The tour from the air was AMAZING TO SAY THE LEAST!! Aircraft was very clean and ran smooth with no vibrations. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour company for any air tours to everyone going to Hawaii. From the General manager to the ground crew many thank's for a memorable experience in Hawaii. Roy, Karryn, Dustin G.
When asked what we liked best about our stay on Oahu, both my husband and I didn't hesitate to say the helicopter flight. The view was awesome and so were the personnel!
It was great and well done. I did wonder why there were not shoulder straps for the back seats. I would have been more comfortable and enjoyed it even more
Although there were moments when you couldn't audibly hear the pilot's commentaries as he pointed and narrated about this and that place, the overall experience - tour to see Oahu from above - was the best way to sum up (wrap up) our trip to Oahu. Definitely a tour worth doing and your money.
Superb, and a great way to see the stunning beauty that is the island of Hawaii. The highlight of the trip was flying over the Pearl Harbour memorial and taking some stunning memorable photos that you can only get from the air. It provides a totally new perspective and view on Pearl harbour events and experience.
This was a fantastic flight. After doing the open door helicopter tour, nothing else was as exciting. Although there was still beautiful scenery on our other 3 helicopter flights on other islands - it wasn't nearly as thrilling as this tour. We feel really lucky to have experienced this tour with the Owner of the Company as our Pilot as well. Very knowledgeable and we loved it! You won't be sorry if you can get this flight booked!
it was a great tour, I would recommend it to every one some friends already have done it
The absolute highlight of my trip. Never had been in a helicopter before, let alone one without doors! The only negative thing that I could say is that it was hard to hear what the pilot was saying because, even with the headset on, it was very noisy, but it didn't take away from the amazing view. Can't wait for my next ride!
Checking this off my bucket list! The pilot was awesome and the scenery was breathtaking. The 45-minute flight takes you to the main points of the island, hugging the coastline, flying over reefs, winding through valleys and spotting hidden waterfalls. Seeing Pearl Harbor for a birds-eye-view was also awesome. Flight was super smooth, too! My friend usually gets motion sickness, but with motion-sickness wristbands and the fresh air blowing through the cockpit, she was fine.
