Dramatic views and stunning vistas await you on this 30-minute Oahu Helicopter Tour. You'll cruise over placid Keehi Lagoon and historic Honolulu Harbor, which is home to the Aloha Tower, once the tallest structure on the island. Then, see cruise ships heading off to distant ports as you fly over downtown Honolulu to view the only royal palace on American soil.

Above the city is the Punchbowl, the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, set in a volcano crater. Your helicopter tour continues above Ala Moana Beach Park, Magic Islands, the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor and world-famous Waikiki Beach.

You'll view Diamond Head Crater from a dramatic perspective as you soar over the "Gold Coast", home to millionaires and the always spectacular Hanauma Bay. As you round the east end of Oahu, the vistas change to rugged coastline as you pass Sandy Beach and the lighthouse on Makapuu Point.

Your 30-minute helicopter tour concludes with stunning views of Mount Olomana and the Nuuanu Pali, where King Kamehameha's warriors battled to unite the islands.

Points of interest include:

  • Waikiki Beach
  • Hanauma Bay
  • Mount Olomana
  • Arizona Memorial
