What You Can Expect

Open-Door Helicopter Tour over Oahu

Fly over the Oahu without doors!

After pickup at select Waikiki hotels, transfer to the helipad at your prearranged departure time.

Climb aboard a state-of-the-art helicopter that lacks only one thing: doors. This allows you unobstructed views as you tour the island and makes for fantastic photo opportunities. Meet your expert pilot, who will narrate the experience as you fly over Oahu's landmarks. Choose standard open seating or opt for First Class seating for a more intimate experience including you and one other person.

Start by soaring over Honolulu Harbor, the Aloha Tower, Magic Island, Keehi Lagoon and Ala Moana Beach Park. Head out of the highly developed Honolulu area and towards the greener side of Oahu, which includes waterfalls, mountains and verdant valleys.

See the soft white Waimanalo Beach and the coral formations of Kaeohe Bay, striking when viewed from the air. See the Chinaman's Hat before heading to Ka'a'awa Valley, where a dozen major motion pictures have been filmed.

On the east end of the island lies Hanauma Bay, the remnants of a volcano crater that's now a marine sanctuary and popular snorkel location. See the Halona Blowhole, Sandy Beach, Makapuu Point and its lighthouse, followed by Sea Life Park.

The island's central plain is host to the world's largest agricultural maze at the Dole Plantation. View Sacred Falls, a sheer waterfall with a 1,000-foot (300-meter) drop. Finish your 45-minute Oahu helicopter tour with a panoramic view of Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial.

After your helicopter lands, transfer back to your Waikiki hotel for drop-off.

Amazing experience never been in a helicopter and every one should do this. You see all the beauty that Oahu has to offer and being open door can get great photos. Pilot was brilliant made sure we saw everything we could in the time allowing.

Wow, my husband and I are in our mid sixties and have never been on a helicopter. I had seat next to our very experienced pilot and my husband by the door in the front seat. He loves to take photos and got some amazing shots as we soared over all major points on the Island. Every one was super nice and we definitely think this was one of the highlights of our Oahu visit. Again, I give it five stars and would say it is well worth the money. Thank you. Marsha Mann

This was not our first experience on a helicopter ride we have previously been on a tour in Las Vegas. I can tell you this was the best ride we have experience so far! OPEN DOORS FRONT SEAT BEAUTIFUL SIGHT GREAT PILOT EPIC EXPERIENCE! I should have remembered the name of the pilot, but she did say as a joke If you liked me, my name is if you dont then my name is . We all had a good laugh about that.

As a pilot she was very skilled, the ride was smooth and we had no issues with takeoff or landing. She was full of humor throughout the tour and let us know if interesting places we could visit. I almost felt as though we were in a commercial! She was also kind enough to ensure I got a chance to record from my side of things. She turned the helicopter around a few times so that I could get a better view for our recording. The best part? We didnt even have to ask her to do this. I am not sure if this is part of the training she gets, but if not great job either way!

Normally I am too lazy to write a review, but this place was just too good for me not to. I wanted to make sure the pilot and the company knew how much fun we had that day. Now that I think of it, she said If you dont like me, my name is Nichole, I cant remember the name of the good pilot but she was defiantly not Nichole that day! All in all we had a great time and would recommend anybody to this venue.

This had to be the first and most awesome thing you can do in Hawaii. Our pilot Jim is the best and most informed person I could have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He has the ability to help a girl, who is scared to death of heights, go on a no doors helicoptor and enjoy the hell out of it. This made mine and my husbands 25th anniversary the best it could have ever been. Our flight covered the island in the best, and in my opinion, the only way to see it. Thank you Jim for making our vacation the BEST EVER. You are the man sir.
