I am a professional surfer and I love surfing at the north shore beaches but I have never appreciated the beauty of them from the air. This tour allows you to capture such an unforgettable experience. If you love the sea and the beach, this tour is then for you. This tour will allow you to see the Banzai Pipeline and the Sunset Beach. Highly recommended.

We rented our AirBnB in Kahuku and we wanted a tour that shows the beauty of the North Shore. We wanted to see all of it. Even though Hawaii is beautiful overall, the North Shore area has something unique and beautiful that makes you fall in love with it. We did skydiving the first time and we were able to see some part of the beauty of the area from the air and that is why this time we wanted a helicopter tour. It didn’t disappoint at all.

I never imagined to get such experience and to be able to see such beauty with only 200 bucks. Please include this tour in your itinerary. The north shore area of Oahu is fantastic. By the way, they told me this tour gets sold out very fast, so make sure you book ahead of time. Precisely because it is so affordable and a very complete tour.
