City by the Sea

See the beautiful skylines of a world-class city and the pristine beaches of a tropical paradise when you fly high over our famous seaside city.

Your trip begins over Honolulu Harbor as you soar along Oahu’s beautiful South Shore. Continuing along the island’s white sands, you see the busy shops of the Ala Moana Center and the popular picnic grounds of Magic Island.

Approaching Waikiki, you notice the beachgoers, surfers, and swimmers enjoying another day of carefree fun and you begin to understand why we lovingly call it, The Gathering Place. After taking in the impressive skyline, you climb high above Diamond Head where you can wave to the hikers on the ridge beneath you. Flying over Punchbowl Crater, you head for Pearl Harbor. At the famous port, you will pass over the memorials of the USS Arizona and Battleship Missouri. As you finish your helicopter tour, you will understand why it’s nearly impossible not to fall in love with this amazing city-by-the-sea.

The flight was amazing. It was my first helicopter tour and I loved it. I would definitely go with Novictor when in Hawaii again. Our pilot Paul made the trip even more interesting and special, giving us time to see the views and information about the island, he was awesome. We loved every bit of it.
