Incredible mountains, the Waikiki skyline and Diamond Head crater as you’ve never seen them before.

Soaring among the green peaks of the Nu’uanu Valley, it can be hard to imagine that these incredible mountains were born from fire. Your helicopter sightseeing experience begins over the island’s South Shore for a chance to see the familiar Waikiki skyline and Diamond Head crater as you’ve never seen them before. You continue on to Hanauma Bay’s beautiful sheltered waters and the nearby cliffs and volcanic outcroppings – beautiful remnants of the island’s fiery volcanic past.

Rounding Makapu’u Point, you follow the Windward Coast and its long stretches of white sand beaches and turquoise waters as they lead you towards the gorgeous mountains beyond. You turn inland to see the three sharp peaks of famous Mt. Olomana, characteristic of its english translation, “divided hill.” Floating inbound, you experience an absolutely breathtaking expanse as you fly the passage among the Nu’uanu Pali cliffs and lush rainforests that cover their slopes. The flight ends with a pass over the site of the USS Arizona Memorial and a renewed appreciation for the volcanic origins that created Oahu’s diverse terrain and the majestic bliss felt by gliding among the landscape.
