Best Of Hawaii

Paradise Helicopters’ Diamond Head Scenic tour is the best way to see some of the most famous spots in Hawai‘i by air. Departing from the Kalaeloa Airport just minutes from the resorts at Kapolei West O‘ahu, you will see Pearl Harbor from the same vantage point as the US Airmen who responded to the fateful attack on the Day of Infamy. You will also drink in the incredible views of Ala Moana Beach Park, the busy Ala Wai Boat Harbor, and the iconic white sand beach of Waikīkī.

Come to a new appreciation of Lē‘ahi (Diamond Head Crater) from a dramatic perspective before turning toward Lulumahu Falls in the lush Nu‘uanu Valley. Glance over at Punchbowl National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific before returning to the luxurious Kapolei West O‘ahu Resort Area on the sunny westside of O‘ahu.

The photos we took over Pearl Harbor are some of the best photos we have from this trip.

I wanted to hike Diamond Head, but I fell pretty bad a week before our trip, and even though I didn’t need surgery- I definitely could say good bye to hiking. Didn’t hike it, but saw it from up there, and believe me I don’t regret it!

The flight was great, I loved the sights and our pilot was a really nice person to fly with. Didn’t like the fact that the check in took almost the same amount of time as the flight, but safety comes first! Next time I’ll book a longer flight.
