Terms & Conditions
Purchasing single seat bookings
Single bookings will require further assistance for scheduling purposes due to our 2 passenger minimum for each flight. Our staff is readily available to accommodate you over the phone or email across many different time zones. Please contact us at 1-888-779-7724 or email us to fulfill your reservation.
Weight and Balance (WB) Fee
Rainbow helicopters has a weight and balance fee for all guests weighing over 270 lbs in order to safely balance the aircraft in advance. In the event your weight exceeds 270 lbs at check in, we will do our best to accommodate you, but you may be rescheduled and charged fees. If you are unable to be rescheduled, the tour will be a full charge. This was formerly called the Comfort Seating Fee.

Rainbow Helicopters flies the skies of Hawaii in Robinson R-44 aircraft with a seating capacity of 3 passengers per flight. We also fly an A-star aircraft with a seating capacity of 6 passengers. We often accommodate parties of 4 or greater. In the case of medium-large parties, we may fly 2 or more helicopters at the same time in sequence around the island.
