Flew with doors off. My friend Jean treated me to this most amazing experience full of vistas that cannot be seen this way on the ground. Still amazed at the beauty of Oahu that I appreciate at a new level after seeing it on this doors off thrilling helicopter ride. Don’t miss this opportunity. I’ve been living on this island for a little over 2 years and I felt like I was just really seeing it for the first time.

I wanted a tour that allows me to be in the air for at least 1 hour. Now, I have to admit that this one was not my first choice since what I originally wanted was sold out (which by the way, this should show you that you have to make your reservation way in advance since helicopter tours in Oahu are very demanded). So we did some research about available tours departing out of Waikiki. I am so glad that I discovered this tour. The staff was so professional and nice all the time.

This is one of the most (if not the most) complete tours that you are going to find in Oahu. This tour will show the beauty of Waikiki from the air as well as the big crater of Diamond Head. This was my favorite activity during my vacation time.

The tour shows you a lot of views of different areas of the island. I’ve been traveling with Magnum Helicopters every time I come to Hawaii and these guys never disappoint. I love their service and how they treat us every time we take one of their tours. Since we were staying in Turtle bay this time, we decided to take this one and I am happy because it takes you around 60 minutes on the air. I loved how close to the ground the helicopter gets once it arrives to Waikiki, a very exciting feeling. My kids loved the view at the Sacred falls. 5 stars all the way
