Isle Sights Unseen 45 Minute Oahu Helicopter Tour with Doors Off or On

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    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.

    Additional Info
    • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
    • Please indicate each passengers preference of Doors on or Doors off in the ‘Special Requirements’ section at checkout. Failure to do so may result in a cancellation of your tour.

    • Safety of flight is our primary concern. The operator reserves the right to refuse service to passengers who are intoxicated or appear to be intoxicated. Intoxicated passengers will not fly and they will be charged in full.

    • All passengers 24 months and older must purchase a full fare seat.
    • Only passengers 8 years of age or older may fly with the door off.

    This may be one of the more expensive events you do on your on vacation but it was by far the best way to see the island and the most bang for your buck. Beautiful views!!!

    Flying over Hawaii was one of the greatest thrills we have ever had. Our pilot was knowledgeable about the islands. We flew with the doors off and it was terrific. I have flown before with doors on, but this was so much better. On the...More

    Not on the helicopters we went on. 3 passengers plus the pilot per helicopter so that everyone has a window view.

    Yes. Children under 2 are considered a "lap child" and they fly for free.

    Well, it’s not just a lap belt, it’s also over your shoulder/ breast. They check it before but better check yourself if it’s nice and tight. Honestly, the experience without doors is unbelievable, I would definitely... More
