Oahu sightseeing in a private helicopter
You’ll begin this private helicopter charter taking in stunning views of the famous Waikiki skyline as Diamond Head Crater’s iconic shape lies ahead as the most perfect backdrop. You’ll be soaking in the majestic beauty of the South Shore, quickly realizing its natural authority over “The Gathering Place”. Rounding the million-dollar ridges, you’ll pass Hanauma Bay, watching as gentle, sandy beaches turn to jagged volcanic cliffs carved out by the relentless surge of the rough waters below. On your way, you’ll glide over top of the charming Makapu’u lighthouse to witness her radiant red beam outward to unknown ships at sea.
As you continue your tour up the island’s Windward Coast, you’ll see the storied Ko’olau mountains in the distance, quietly watching as you pass over Lanikai Beach – often called the most marvelous beach in the world – and the offshore sandbars and coral formations that make Kaneohe Bay one of the most picturesque places on Earth.
As you fly over Kualoa Valley, the truly special part of this royal tour begins. A tender descent from the heavens presents a unique opportunity to witness from the ground the magnificent sights you’ve viewed from the sky. After a gentle landing, your pilot becomes your “Aloha Maitre’d”, escorting you to a private pavilion perfectly situated in a 4000-acre paradise with lush, green landscapes, mountains that stretch to the clouds and gentle trade winds that reach from the nearby windward coast. There, you’ll enjoy freshly made wraps, cheeses and local Waialua Estate chocolates, made with rare, pure Hawaiian cacao, grown on Oahu in the rich volcanic soil of the North Shore. Paired with a champagne toast and flower leis, this is the ultimate dream date you won’t soon forget.
After your peaceful stay on sacred Hawaiian land, it’s time to join the breeze as your private helicopter whisks you back up to the sky, hugging the Windward coast and cruising up to Oahu’s famed North Shore, bringing you up-close aerial views of the surfers at Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay.
Heading inland, you’ll fly over the “The Pineapple Sea” of the Dole Plantation and do a memorable slow-pass over Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial to conclude your helicopter tour of the royal skies and amazing vistas of Hawaii’s crowned jewel.
