Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Pick your preferred flight departure hour at the time of booking, and then receive a pickup from your Honolulu hotel. You’ll proceed to Honolulu International Airport for an unforgettable 45-minute sightseeing helicopter trip.

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. You’ll receive a drop-off back at your hotel after your flight.

Spectacular - A Must do, Must see Flight!

If watching paint dry and grass grow is your thing, this experience may not be for you. However, if you are alive e and kicking, it's time to kick things up a notch and call Viator for a thrill you'll remember for a lifetime. We chose to fly without doors on our flight around Honolulu. Most amazing was flying the same flight pattern that the Japanese flew on December 7, 1941 into Pearl Harbor. It was truly emotional to fly over the Arizona Memorial. The color of Hawaii's blue water is spectacular and flying over the coast line is the only way to capture it. If you're considering this event, pick up the phone and call NOW! Enjoy your flight!

Amazing experience, super safe and hassle free. Bastian our pilot was super nice and informative, the flight was smooth and pleasant and we saw amazing parts of the island like the Diamond Head, sacred waterfalls, Pearl Harbor, etc. We totally recommend it, when you do it choose the option without doors, it is even better and you get complete visibility. Great experience, totally worth it and we will repeat it for sure in the future.

This was great! I'm went with my fiancé, who's a little more afraid of the adventurous stuff, but this wasn't bad at all (well maybe with the exception of a few times where we ran into some turbulence). We did the tour around the perimeter and took about a hundred pictures of the island because it's so breathtaking :). In fact if you have a GoPro and can just set it to do that automatically, I'd recommend that (just note you'll need to strap it to your wrist for them to allow it).

Amazing experience to say the least! It’s a must do to really see the beauty the island has to offer. Sara is a amazing pilot as I was the only passenger so seemed more of a private tour. She pointed out all the landmarks as we flew over them. A wonderful perspective from high above. Totally recommend! Thanks for great tour!
