Paradise Helicopters is a fabulous helicopter tour company that operates tours on both the Big Island of Hawaii and on the island of Oahu. Something that differentiates Paradise Helicopters from most other helicopter companies is the fact that on many of their flights they fly with 'doors off'. If you think this might be a thrill, "you've got that totally right"! Understand that you are fully strapped in and are every bit as secure as you would be in an enclosed aircraft, it just doesn't seem that way! Once you get used to it however it is amazing to not only see the island below by looking straight down but you sort of feel the island as well with air rushing past and the scent of salt water or forest in the air. ...... The Big Island of Hawaii is truly one of the most diverse in the island chain. Paradise Helicopters, with tours departing from the Kona International Airport or Hilo International Airport, allow you to choose your air adventure. To truly experience the awesome power of the Kilauea Volcano and savor the lush tropical rainforests and waterfalls of the Wailuku River you need to see it from above. Some of these areas are remote and restricted, so seeing them by land is not possible. Paradise Helicopters has a fleet of six passenger Bell 407 helicopters and four passenger Hughes 500's. The Bell 407 helicopters are spacious and have executive style seating and oversized window for great pictures. The Hughes 500 are often flown with the doors off and all seats are next to a window. Paradise has several air tours available and will make sure your trip is truly memorable. ...... Most aircraft on Oahu depart from Honolulu and surrounding areas but Paradise Helicopter leaves from the North Shore in an area called Turtle Bay. If you're staying anywhere near that area this may be the company you want to fly with. Also, since at the top of many people's list of sites to see on Oahu is the North Shore and since Paradise Helicopters offers a twenty minute flight of this area, it might make sense for you to drive out to catch the flight at Turtle Bay and just do the twenty-minute flight from there rather than flying the whole island and spending the cost of a full hours flight.
