Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Select a convenient departure time when booking, and begin your tour at Rainbow Helicopters located in Honolulu International Airport.

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.

The views were incredible! Our ground crew was friendly and the pilot was informative about the island. My husband and I loved it! He saw turtles from the right side of the helicopter. I didnt but was in awe of the steep green slopes of Oahu and the turquoise coves. The 45 minutes may have been a smidge too long for our young kids. Otherwise, it was well worth it!

We loved this! Of all the tours we could do this seemed to cover the most land, we got to see SO much! Our pilot was great and so informed about everything. Being 6 months pregnant I was a bit nervous but felt very safe the entire time. And we did doors off! Would recommend.
