Royal Crown of Oahu

Great skies reveal legendary landscapes, rainbows, sapphire waters, and world-famous attractions born of Hawaii’s amazing empire on this royal ring helicopter tour around Oahu.

You’ll begin this helicopter tour with expansive views of the Waikiki skyline built upon the sugary sands of the esteemed surf beach of the Pacific. Rising to new heights, Diamond Head’s tiara will appear before you, sometimes jeweled with rainbows, as it reigns upon the South Shore exercising it’s 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.

Passing Chinaman’s Hat, watch in awe as the majestic Ka’a’awa Valley unfolds before you. As the mountains approach, you’ll pull in close to see the impressive streams of Sacred Falls tumble to the lush rainforest below. Then, as your helicopter hugs the coast of the famed North Shore, hang on tight as you get up-close aerial views of the surfers at Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay. Heading inland, you’ll fly over the “The Pineapple Sea” at 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.

Excellent guides and view. Unbelievable scenery. Hard to explain in words. Each second or picture is worth a thousand words. You simply have to experience it.

Our helicopter tour was amazing! All staff were very kind. We had Paul as our pilot and he was very knowledgeable and made the tour so enjoyable. This was our first time on a helicopter and we felt very safe and would definitely recommend this to anyone!

First time in a helicopter and we went doors off, Sarah was our pilot, she was awesome and gave us a great tour. It was a little hard to hear and communicate, but once we got going we got the hang of it and it was nice to communicate with our pilot and ask dumb tourist questions. It was a very smooth flight for the most part, a few up and downs due to the winds, my wife is prone to motion sickness and she just took a Dramamine to help settle herself. Some things to know, you can tip your pilot after your flight once you get back in the office if you feel the need to, I did, if you have longer hair it will get tangled up pretty good and you have to leave your wallet in the office (I didn’t like this as it wasn’t locked). You can bring your cell phone, they provide a neck strap but my phone was very difficult to take pictures through the plastic, but my son had no problem so it was probably something I wasn’t doing right. I would highly recommend this once in a life time experience, as we made life long family memories.

What an adventure! We thoroughly enjoyed the island tour. We were able to see things we never could have on the ground. Our pilot, Kat, was exceptional. Not only was she a great pilot, but very knowledgeable on the island sites. I really appreciated the fact she was able to keep my wife calm during the turbulent areas and make this a very memorable experience for both of us. The first thing we did when we got home from the vacation was to watch the video. Such a wonderful reminder we will have of this trip. I am so glad we chose NOVICTOR for our tour!!! Would recommend this tour to everybody, and will definitely take it again on our next trip to Hawaii!

The pilot and hubby talked me into doors off- how great it was, not scary at all, just the wind that made hanging on to everything and trying to take photos a little difficult. Disappointed that hubby got to see all the beach and sea and I got to see all the mountains and forest as that was the direction we were going- an idea would have been to turn at times though maybe this couldn't be done. The ground crew were exceptional! Nothing was too big an issue for them. I would love to do it again and fly over Diamond Head this time!

Our experience with Novictor was excellent, from the first call for information, through the booking process, to getting picked up and delivered, and instructions before the flight. And then the flight! Absolutely choose doors off! We felt very safe, don't let fear stop you! And the hour went by in a blink! Great tour with fun information shared. I want to do this again!
