Covering the island of O‘ahu from above, our Circle Island Experience is the only full circle tour of O‘ahu by helicopter. See incredible aerial views starting with a taste of history over Pearl Harbor, the WWII the Arizona Memorial, and Battleship Missouri. Next soar above the bustling Honolulu harbor, beautiful Waikīkī, and iconic Diamond Head Crater. Heading further east, you’ll overfly Koko Head Crater and Hanauma Bay before Sandy Beach and Makapu‘u Lighthouse. Heading north, you will come across the fantastic coral formations of Kāne‘ohe Bay, Mokoli‘i (Chinaman’s Hat) and take a peek into “Jurassic Park”– or, as it has been known locally for hundreds of years, Ka‘a‘awa Valley. The thousand foot cascade of Kaliuwa‘a (Sacred Falls) is sure to stun you, and is accessible only by air. Then you’ll see the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Resort and world famous surfing spots of the North Shore – Sunset, Pipeline, Waimea Bay & more. As you round Ka‘ena Point you get a glimpse of the serene Wai‘anae Coast, a hidden gem of the island. Uncrowded and glorious white sand beaches – Yokohama, Mākaha, and Pōka‘i – lace the coast. Historic Mākaha Valley comes into view as you are a few minutes away from arriving back to Ko‘olina.

We came on a cruise ship and our time on the island was very limited. This flight was a great way to see all the famous areas at once.

We did this at the beginning of our vacation, believe it or not, but it ended up very useful. The pilot taught us interesting facts about different parts of the island which gave us some sort of guidance for the rest of our trip. It really makes you feel more familiar with the area, not to mention how beautiful everything is.

I took amazing shots of the Arizona Memorial and other areas of the island. Oahu is incredibly beautiful from up there!
