You’ll begin this helicopter tour with expansive views of the Waikiki skyline built upon the sugary sands of the esteemed surf beach of the Pacific. Rising to new heights, Diamond Head’s tiara will appear before you, sometimes jeweled with rainbows, as it reigns upon the South Shore exercising it’s natural authority over The Gathering Place. Rounding the million-dollar ridges, you’ll pass Hanauma Bay, watching as gentle, sandy beaches turn to jagged volcanic cliffs carved out by the relentless surge of the rough waters below.

On your way, you’ll glide over top of the charming Makapu’u lighthouse to witness her radiant red beam outward to unknown ships at sea. As you continue your tour up the island’s Windward Coast, you’ll see the storied Ko’olau mountains in the distance, quietly watching as you pass over Lanikai Beach – often called the most marvelous beach in the world – and the offshore sandbars and coral formations that make Kaneohe Bay one of the most picturesque places on Earth.

Passing Chinaman’s Hat, watch in awe as the majestic Ka’a’awa Valley unfolds before you. As the mountains approach, you’ll pull in close to see the impressive streams of Sacred Falls tumble to the lush rainforest below. Then, as your helicopter hugs the coast of the famed North Shore, hang on tight as you get up-close aerial views of the surfers at Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay. Heading inland, you’ll fly over the “The Pineapple Sea” at the Dole Plantation and do a memorable slow-pass over Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial to conclude your helicopter tour of the royal skies and amazing vistas of Hawaii’s crown jewel.
