Hovering over a hidden waterfall on Oahu

Your helicopter tour begins as you fly over Honolulu’s famous harbor where the Aloha Tower welcomes arriving ships into the port – just as it has done for nearly 100 years. Heading further down the coast, you pass the beaches of Waikiki and do a slow loop around majestic Diamond Head, peaking into the center of what is arguably the most famous landmark in all of Hawaii. Then, with wide open Maunalua Bay passing beneath you, you reach the island’s rugged eastern shores and Hanauma Bay’s well-known reefs. Following the rocky coast, you see the little lighthouse sitting atop the cliffs of Makapu’u and pass the longest stretch of beach on the entire island of Oahu. Keep an eye out for rainbows!

You then travel up the Windward Coast, to visit world-renowned Lanikai Beach and the aptly-named Chinaman’s Hat. Your helicopter allows you to explore the lush forests and emerald cliffs of the awe-inspiring Ka’a’awa Valley and fly in close for a view of Oahu’s highest waterfall, Sacred Falls. The tour ends with a visit to the Dole Pineapple Plantation and low-altitude views of Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. A side of Oahu many do not know will reveal itself with a tour of these sights unseen.
