This tour is our finest and most popular helicopter excursion. Your adventure begins with a beautiful view of placid Keehi Lagoon and continues over historic Honolulu Harbor. Here you will see Aloha Tower, once the tallest structure on the island, as well cruise ships from distant ports.
Next is downtown Honolulu, featuring the only royal palace in the country. Above the city stands Punchbowl, the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. The tour continues above Ala Moana Beach Park, Magic Island, the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor and Waikiki Beach. Beyond, you'll see Diamond Head crater from a dramatic perspective, the 'Gold Coast' where multi-millionaires make their homes, and spectacular Hanauma Bay.
Rounding the east end of the island, you'll see rugged coastline, inviting Sandy Beach and Makapuu Point and lighthouse. Your aerial tour continues over Sea Life Park, the estate where TV's Magnum P.I. was filmed, and miles of white sand beach.
You'll be treated to a stunning view of Mount Olomana and, later, the Nuuanu Pali where King Kamehameha's warriors won a decisive battle to unite the islands.
Your tour continues on past Sacred Falls, over the Polynesian Cultural Center, one of Hawaii's most popular visitor attractions, and the Mormon Temple in Laie. You'll also see Turtle Bay, the aquaculture farms and Kahuku Point. Don't be surprised if you see humpback whales offshore here during the winter months.
The tour continues along the storied North Shore, with a dramatic view of world-renowned surfing spots including Sunset Beach, Pipeline and Waimea Bay. On your way over Oahu's Central Plain, you'll see the Dole Pineapple maze and the 'birthing stones' of Hawaiian royalty. Your tour concludes with a panoramic vista of Pearl Harbor.
