City-by-the-Sea - 20 Min Helicopter Tour - Doors Off or On

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Begin your tour with convenient hotel pickup. Helicopter tours are available every hour between 8am and 5pm. 

    Get a brief orientation from your pilot and choose whether you'd like to fly with the helicopter doors on or off. Fasten your seat belt and take off, flying over Honolulu Harbor and the South Shore of Oahu. Watch the people milling around in Honolulu's commercial district, far below, and see people relaxing on Magic Island and the white sand of Waikiki. 

    Get a bird's eye view (and stunning photo ops) of Diamond Head, the Punchbowl Crater, and the U.S. National Military Cemetery of the Pacific. Head for Pearl Harbor, where you'll get aerial views of the Battleship Missouri and the USS Arizona Memorial. 

    After 20 minutes, land back at Honolulu National Airport. Return to your hotel for drop-off.

    Fantastic flight, dead smooth with great views of Waikiki. Our pilot was kind enough to point out items of interest along the way and was very knowledgeable about the local area. The doors off was a great way to do it and the transport between...More
