Isle Sights Unseen

A unique side of Oahu awaits when you take to the sky to discover the sights you have yet to see.

Your helicopter tour begins as you fly over Honolulu’s famous harbor where the Aloha Tower welcomes arriving ships into the port – just as it has done for nearly 100 years. Heading further down the coast, you pass the beaches of Waikiki and do a slow loop around majestic Diamond Head, peaking into the center of what is arguably the most famous landmark in all of Hawaii. Then, with wide open Maunalua Bay passing beneath you, you reach the island’s rugged eastern shores and Hanauma Bay’s well-known reefs. Following the rocky coast, you see the little lighthouse sitting atop the cliffs of Makapu’u and pass the longest stretch of beach on the entire island of Oahu. Keep an eye out for rainbows!

You then travel up the Windward Coast, to visit world-renowned Lanikai Beach and the aptly-named Chinaman’s Hat. Your helicopter allows you to explore the lush forests and emerald cliffs of the awe-inspiring Ka’a’awa Valley and fly in close for a view of Oahu’s highest waterfall, Sacred Falls. The tour ends with a visit to the Dole Pineapple Plantation and low-altitude views of Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. A side of Oahu many do not know will reveal itself with a tour of these sights unseen.

We had a wonderful experience! The sights were unbelievable and our pilot, Geoff was great company. He shared lots of information about the island and also gave us some food recommendations. The staff that greeted us and gave us our briefing was also awesome! They all had great attitudes and pumped us up before takeoff. What a great way to see Oahu!

This was a very nice experience! The ride was super smooth and it felt absolutely safe to do the doors off tour. We booked the 45 min tour that takes you around the coast and into the hidden places of the island of Oahu, only visible from up above! It was a total of 7 of us in the helicopter, including the pilot. Our pilot was sharing great insights about the different places / locations we flue by. The only reason this is 4 star instead of 5, is because we sat on the right and at the beginning, missed out on some of the cool views on the left almost entirely... It would have been so great if the helicopter turned for a few moments to show people sitting on the right the full views on the left and vice versa. All in all we enjoyed it very much! This is definitely something that will show you the island from a unique and even more beautiful perspective!

We had Paul as our tour guide and Helicopter pilot. He was amazing and provided us with a lot of fun trivia and tips to maximize our vacation. This experience was by far an experience of a lifetime. The views were majestic. Our highlights were the waterfalls and the views of Diamond head. Definitely worth it.

When we found out we were going to Hawaii, one of the first things we did was book a helicopter tour. When our tour day finally arrived, we ended up rescheduling (on our own choice), Novictor was very understanding and helpful with rescheduling to hopefully a better day weather wise. Just a couple days later, that day arrived. We were SO EXCITED that we switched our day and ended up having the best weather Oahu has had in a couple weeks. Sarah, our pilot, was so knowledgable with the island and flying. We felt incredibly safe, and had such a wonderful time. We were in shock of the beauty of the island and seeing it the way Sarah showed us. We will definitely do it again when we come back to Oahu. Thank you to all at Novictor, and especially a huge shout out to Sarah! Would highly recommend to everyone.

The pilot did an amazing job of flying the aircraft during the windy day that we had. He was also very knowledgeable about the island and the areas in which we flew over and near. Definitely recommend flying with the doors off as I was really able to see the amazing views without any instructions.

The helicopter flight was easily the best thing we did while in Hawaii. Ended up being a last minute thing, and easily booked our trip online. They picked us up from our hotel and then dropped us back off afterwards. Sarah was a fantastic pilot and guided us around the most amazing views. You really haven’t seen how beautiful Hawaii is unless you see it from the air. Everyone at Novictor was very friendly and helpful. Made you feel comfortable the entire time. Highly recommend Novictor and the trip.

Wonderfull tour. Everything from pick up at the cruise terminal to our return was handled efficiently. Once at the heliport we received a briefing and had a choice of doors on or off the helicopter. The Pilot was friendly and knowledgable and we felt in safe hands. We will be booking again for next March !!

If you want breathtaking views of Oahu's lesser known sights, this helicopter ride is the way to go. Since I'm a resident of Oahu and have seen the majority of what it offers on the ground, I finally decided to tour it from the air. This awesome tour gave me a whole new perspective - highly recommended!
