Path to Pali Passage

Incredible mountains, the Waikiki skyline and Diamond Head crater as you’ve never seen them before.

Soaring among the green peaks of the Nu’uanu Valley, it can be hard to imagine that these incredible mountains were born from fire. Your helicopter sightseeing experience begins over the island’s South Shore for a chance to see the familiar Waikiki skyline and Diamond Head crater as you’ve never seen them before. You continue on to Hanauma Bay’s beautiful sheltered waters and the nearby cliffs and volcanic outcroppings – beautiful remnants of the island’s fiery volcanic past.

Rounding Makapu’u Point, you follow the Windward Coast and its long stretches of white sand beaches and turquoise waters as they lead you towards the gorgeous mountains beyond. You turn inland to see the three sharp peaks of famous Mt. Olomana, characteristic of its english translation, “divided hill.” Floating inbound, you experience an absolutely breathtaking expanse as you fly the passage among the Nu’uanu Pali cliffs and lush rainforests that cover their slopes. The flight ends with a pass over the site of the USS Arizona Memorial and a renewed appreciation for the volcanic origins that created Oahu’s diverse terrain and the majestic bliss felt by gliding among the landscape.

This was a first for me and I was very anxious. The whole ground crew was wonderful and put me at ease right away. Andrew was our pilot and did a fantastic job handling the aircraft and pointing out the sites. It was such an incredible experience, I will truly never forget it. I recommend this to anyone thinking about it, was the highlight of my trip here! Thanks all for a fantastic time!!

My husband and I had a wonderful overall experience. Bastian was our pilot and offered a safe, exciting and informative ride. My only downside is that I couldn't hear any audio with my headset (thus the minus 1 star), but my husband used text to share back the information that Bastian was highlighting. We had an extended trip, with doors off and front seat views, which was breathtaking. Strong customer service all around. Thanks again Rainbow team for all of your support.

We had an amazing time in the air with Nicole and Bastian -- highly experienced pilots who were very thoughtful and made sure our entire party felt at ease, including our two older parents. We flew the Path to Pali with doors off, and the sights were absolutely gorgeous -- totally worth it! Thank you for flying us and giving us a spectacular ride -- we will visit again!

Super smooth ride! Our pilot did an excellent job pointing out sites and making sure we were able to take awesome pictures. For the major attractions, he circled the helicopter to ensure both sides could get a clear view. If you're on the island for a short period of time, you can pack in quite a bit of sightseeing in a short flight. Highly recommended - would definitely fly with Novictor again next time I'm in Oahu!
