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.

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.

Excellent experience from the time they picked us up to the time they dropped us back at the hotel. Doors off is the only way to do it.

The open door trip is the only way to go. you can see everything so clearly, and views of the island you could never see from land. We got some slsom shots of Pearl Harbor and the Arizona that you could never get from a land based tour! The pilot was informative and skilled at his job! This is not a waste of money.

This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for us! We are so glad we decided to invest in this helicopter tour. It was so fun, beautiful, and exciting! One piece of advice that I wish I had been given beforehand... if you're planning on taking photos and/or videos with your cell phone... make sure you bring a phone case that has a STRONG hold with a wrist or lanyard strap. I purchased a case especially for this purpose, but was denied from using it because the case's corner would come off of the phone when tugged on. In reality, it would have been FINE, but because safety is one of their top priorities, I wasn't allowed to use it. Big bummerit was a waste of money. They do have cases available to purchase for 5, but it's more like a plastic bag where you can only take photos from one side...AKA no selfies unless you're taking them blindly from the backside of your phone. Overall, it was a great experience a little nauseating, at the same time haha, but we would definitely recommend it if you're on the fence.

I gave the doors off helicopter tour for my boyfriend for his birthday and am so glad I did. We got picked up in Waikiki promptly when they said they would be there, during the short ride there we watched the safety video. We decided to do the early tour since it get so bright out we figured it would be easier to see everything early on. We also sprung for the front two seats, which I am so happy we did!
We had Pilot Jim and he was wonderful and very funny too, he made everyone very comfortable with the flight and was very knowledgeable! He showed us this really cool circle rainbow and we got to fly though it. We also saw so sacred falls which was great since you can't get there by foot legally there anymore. It was breathtaking!
I was surprised how smooth the flight was, it wasn't even that windy up there, or scary, having the doors off was amazing, we really got to see EVERYTHING. I also liked how he pointed out some of the celebrities mansions as we were flying. I had asked if we were going to see the Crouching Lion and he made sure to show me where that was. I was excited to see it in the air since we had climbed it two days before. We also saw sea turtles swimming which I thought was pretty cool!
I think the price was fair for what we got, and I would certainly do it again. It was truly a highlight of our trip!
