Factors to Consider When Browsing Helicopter Tours in Hawaii

From your preferred flight duration to your budget, here are some of the key factors to keep in mind when choosing a helicopter tour:


How long do you want your flight to last? Some people want to spend as much time as possible in the sky soaking up views of Hawaii’s amazing landscapes, while others may prefer to keep their flight short due to time constraints. We offer tours that last as little as 18 minutes to as long as an hour or more. Browse our range of flights to see what each includes.

Doors on vs. Doors off

Do you want to keep the doors closed for your own sense of ease during your flight? Or would you prefer a doors-off flight so that you can enjoy the added thrill and take professional-grade photos? You can rest assured that our doors-off flights are just as safe as our standard tours. If you want to open the doors, you can do so free of charge. Just let our pilot know your desires.


Do you just want to fly over Waikiki in time for sunset, traverse Oahu from north to south, or fly over several Hawaiian Islands? Different tours cater to different preferences, so it’s worth finding out what’s available. Take a look at our range of flights, and you’ll see that we offer tours to a range of destinations.


Do you want to splash out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the entire island of Oahu and all its hidden treasures from above? Or do you need to keep a strict budget in mind so that you have enough cash for other experiences in Hawaii? With prices starting from just $166.50 per person, we cater to almost any budget.
