Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Select a convenient departure time when booking, and begin your tour at Rainbow Helicopters located in Honolulu International Airport.

Climb aboard your helicopter and enjoy your pre-selected choice of a “doors on” or “doors off” flight as you take off above this tropical Hawaiian island. Cruise above some of Oahu’s most famous landmarks, starting with a bird’s eye view of the Honolulu Harbor and a flight over the island’s south shore.

You’ll then zoom above the famous Diamond Head crater before proceeding above the clear waters of Manalua Bay and the vibrant reefs of Hanauma Bay on Oahu’s eastern shore. From there you’ll pass near the tiny lighthouse above the cliffs of Makapu’u and then trace the Ko’olau Mountains heading toward Lanikai Beach and the “Chinamans’ Hat.” Continuing your scenic ride, travel up into Ka'a'awa Valley and get a panoramic look at Sacred Falls, Oahu’s tallest waterfall.

Finish up your breathtaking helicopter experience by cruise over to the iconic Pearl Harbor site, where you’ll get an up-close look at the iconic USS Arizona Memorial before heading back to the airport.

Amazing and super professional
, Jun 2021
From beginning to end, the experience was very professional and we felt very safe flying! Our pilot was wonderful pointing out the sites and the ground crew were very helpful in processing us getting ready for the trip. We flew without doors and captured beautiful photos. Highly recommend!
Great way to see the island!

Very cool way to see the island. Nicole was a great pilot, super friendly, and easy to understand. Highly recommended. As others have said, it's a good idea to do this early to see what you want to see from the ground.

This was an amazing experience. Spectacular photo op which we took advantage of. Jeff was a great pilot and tour guide, allowing us to see from above all the places we has visited on the island. Mahalo Rainbow Helicopters!
Must do in Hawaii

The views of Honolulu were breathtaking, there is no other way to see the view into the mountains. We were able to fly over Pearl Harbor.
A perfect overview of Oahu!

This tour was amazing! Highly recommend it and to do it with doors off! I have been to Oahu a few times but it was so great to see an aerial view of everything. Really enjoyed flying over and into some of the more remote areas that you can’t easily reach by car or foot. Our tour guide Sarah was great and provided a lot of great facts, all while pointing out sea turtles, hammerheads and other creatures below.

I was so excited that we were helicoptering around Hawaii. Since covid was going on, we called ahead to ask about capacity. We were informed that the helicopter would not be full capacity. However when we arrived, we were escorted to our 6 passenger helicopter that was FULL capacity. (4 people in the back; one person and the pilot in the front). Of the four people placed in the back, my spouse and I and one of the other 2 girls were all on the heavy side; the smaller girl sat near the window. In order to fit in my seat, I sat the whole trip with my elbows on my chest. That pressure on my chest made me nauseous during the whole flight. After our flight, we were escorted back to the office where the staff questioned our “fun.” I explained how squished we were in the back. She said “we are about family”...”I’m sure you got to know your neighbors.” I said we were not introduced and shook hands with the others on my flight and introduced myself. It was a big disappointment for the misinformation we received about capacity and the uncomfortableness of our flight. We spent a lot of money for the experience.

This was our first time in the helicopter and it was absolutely amazing. I would recommend anybody that gets a chance to go on a helicopter ride
