Blue Skies of Oahu ECO Helicopter Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Nothing is more seductive than beautiful Waikiki Beach, except a beautiful tour above Waikiki Beach! You'll enjoy lilting Hawaiian music through Bose aviation-grade noise-canceling headsets, while your expert Blue Hawaiian pilot, a State of Hawaii Certified Tour Guide, lifts you gently into the blue skies of Oahu. Cruise past such framed hotels as the Royal Hawaiian, the Halekulani, the Moana Surfrider, and more; see the gorgeous tableau of Waikiki's white sands, palm trees, and gentle surf, framed against the majestic volcanic crater of Diamond Head.

    Yet Waikiki Beach is just the beginning of Oahu's countless treasures. The scenery of this unique island has appeared in scores of Hollywood films and television series, such as Pearl Harbor, Jurassic Park, The Lost World, George of the Jungle, Pirates of the Caribbean III, Lost and more In fact, Blue Hawaiian flew aerial photography for all of these blockbuster productions, and for many more film and television projects across the Hawaiian Islands.

    So get ready, because a succession of stunning sights, like a string of glittering pearls, awaits you: Honolulu Harbor, graced by picturesque Aloha Tower; heart-tugging Punchbowl, the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific; and the splendid crescent of Hanauma Bay. Gliding eastward, it's like you've gone to another world- a world that truly can be appreciated only from the panoramic cockpit of an Eco-Star helicopter: you'll be amazed by the spectacular coastline, the Makapuu Point and lighthouse, Mount Olomana, legendary "Chinaman's Hat" (proper name, Mokoli'i), and the soaring Nuuani Pali- where Blue Hawaiian helped capture some of the most powerful images in the film Pearl Harbor-and the lust and dense Nuuanu Valley Rainforest. Then it's up the breathtaking coastline to Sacred Falls and the expansive Dole Pineapple Plantations.

    Finally, no tour of Oahu would be complete without the inspirational nostalgia of Pearl Harbor. Here is the emotions epicenter of American pride in our nation's endurance and ultimate victory in World war II, with its haunting Arizona Memorial-symbol of the beginning of the way- and the mighty U.S.S. Missouri, where the surrender was signed. Every year, millions of people make a timeless pilgrimage of gratitude and homage to this hallowed place, yet now you can see it all with the perspective you can only get from the air. Unforgettable!

    The pilot was very knowledgeable and pointed out many areas of interest. The helicopter was clean and spacious. I would definitely use them again in the future plans to Hawaiian Islands. The price was fair for what received, but it should have included the video...More

    This is definitely a must! The flight was smooth and beautiful. The pilot, Gardner, was excellent. I was concerned about how the helicopter would cause motion sickness but no problem
