Oahu helicopter tours are the most spectacular way to see the island!

Oahu helicopter rides provide you with the very best opportunity to view the spectacular countryside, jungle forests, hidden waterfalls and wild terrain that is beyond the visible scope of most Oahu visitors. Because Oahu is the most populated of the Hawaiian Islands most people don't realize that some areas of the island are as remote as locations on other islands and can only truly be viewed from above by one of Oahu's helicopter flights. This viewpoint is often so predominant that clients have asked us for years about the worthiness of an Oahu helicopter flight in comparison to the helicopter rides found on the other islands. Certainly it would be improper to diminish the impact of helicopter flights on any other Hawaii location because each island's helicopter rides provide a totally unique perspective of each island, but the perspective provided by the helicopter tours on Oahu completely enhance the perspective of the visitors Oahu experience. There is no other way for instance, for a visitor to understand the dichotomy and absolute distinction between Oahu's city landscape and its remote and isolated mountain zones than from the air in a helicopter. The views seen in these remote areas are so beautiful, stunning and coveted that filming them from the air by helicopter has become the stock and trade of Hollywood's most important directors and the scenes filmed at these locations have shown up in some of the most popular movies ever made by the film industry, such as Jurassic Park.

Most people tend to think about Oahu as simply Honolulu and Waikiki, but it is much more. Like the other Hawaiian islands, much of Oahu can only be seen from the vantage point of the air above. The helicopter flights of Oahu circle the island highlighting the major points of interest.

Oahu is the second oldest of the major Hawaiian Islands, its volcanoes having been extinct for over three-million years. The intensity of the rain, wind and oceans constantly eroding the surfaces of Oahu have created an island with razor sharp ridges and enormous gorges and valleys with waterfalls surrounded by the richest of emerald green foliage, vibrant flowers and immense forests. All this and more can be easily seen on a 45 minute helicopter flight departing from Honolulu.

Where will the Oahu Helicopter Tours take you?

  • The most popular tours for the Oahu helicopter flights are the 45 minute to an hour Circle Island flights. Oahu is just the perfect size to be adequately seen in 45 minutes to one hours time.

  • The shortest flights offered are 30 minutes in length and visit the Honolulu and Waikiki areas before circling around the coast to Makapu'u Point and doubling back over the Nuumanu Pali to Honolulu.

  • If you care to drive out to the North Shore to meet your helicopter flight you will find one of the best values with a doors-off flight that will take you to some of the most beautiful areas on the island on the opposite side from Honolulu.

What types of helicopters are used on your Oahu flights?

  • The md500 is a sporty and fast helicopter with first class seating both rear and front with plenty of leg room.

  • The A-Star is generally considered the "gold standard" for Oahu helicopter flights. No matter where you sit you'll have 180-degree visibility. The rotator shaft does not come between the front and back seats and there are no visual impediments interrupting your view forward. The back seat is raised to give a better view above those seated in the front and there are an abundance of windows.

  • The Bell Jet Ranger seats four passengers. It is an American built helicopter just a bit smaller than the A-Star.

With regard to photography on your Oahu helicopter flight.

  • Most helicopter companies will provide you with a video of your actual Oahu helicopter flight. These are taken from cameras mounted on the outside of the aircraft and tape the flight that you actually took.

  • All Oahu helicopters allow you to take video or photography from your helicopter flight on your own and some provide flights that have the doors removed for better viewing and taking of photos.
