9. Oahu: Helicopter Tour with Doors On or Off
Take a scenic helicopter flight over Oahu and marvel at the island's highlights from the air. Choose between a shared or private tour option to best suit you. See Waikiki Beach, Makapu’u Lighthouse, the Chinaman's Hat, and much more.
Begin the helicopter adventure with a flight over Honolulu Harbor. See the Aloha Tower, which has been welcoming ships into the harbor for nearly a century. As you soar down the coast, go past the Waikiki beaches, looping around Diamond Head.
Shortly, witness Maunalua Bay open in front of your eyes, revealing the island's world-renowned reefs. Be greeted by Makapu’u Lighthouse after the rocky cliffs before you travel up Windward Coast.

But it’s not all beach and coastline on your tour. Get a chance to experience the lush tropical landscapes of the Ka’a’awa Valley and see the beautiful Sacred Falls.
On your homeward journey, catch sight of the Dole Pineapple Plantation. Get an emotional flyover of Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial.
