Waikiki Sunset

Here you will be given a front row seat in a Waikiki sunset helicopter tour above Oahu’s famous shores.

Experience the famed Waikiki skyline as it basks in warm and colorful evening light, then fly around Diamond Head and watch as long shadows reach from its summit. As the sandy beaches of Hanauma Bay give way to jagged volcanic cliffs, you will see the Makapuu lighthouse casting its red beam of light toward sailors at sea. Continuing up the picturesque Windward Coast, you will see the evening light paint beaches and sandbars to the Ko’olau mountains beyond small islands and Chinaman’s Hat.

Traversing from sea to rainforest, the majestic Ka’a’awa Valley unfolds before you. You’ll fly in close to see the impressive streams of Sacred Falls tumble to the lush rainforest below. With a few gentle turns you’ll soar out of the valley and above the surfers at Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay. Heading inland, you’ll fly over “The Pineapple Sea” at the Dole Plantation. As the sun nears the horizon and the blue sky fades, your flight continues to Pearl Harbor for a slow pass above the USS Arizona Memorial.

To complete another perfect day, you will fly back towards the city and witness the waning sun emblazon the sky, silhouetting the expansive city skyline against gorgeous hues of pink, orange, red, and yellow.

Our pilot was awesome and the views were beautiful. We were glad that we decided to go with the doors off and glad we brought our jackets. It was a great way to see the island!

Such an incredible experience! Our pilot, Joey, also doubled as a wonderful tour guide--he answered all of our questions about the island while we were flying. The whole team made us feel really safe, and the entire experience was one of our favorite activities during our trip to Oahu.

The sunset helicopter tour was quite an amazing experience! All the staff was very polite and punctual. The ride itself was something words cannot describe! Sitting in the sky above Waikiki was insane! Highly recommended to individuals who live for a thrill! You have the option to have the doors on or off and we decided to take them off to take in more of the view and we didn’t regret it! An overall amazing experience and look forward to coming back again for more.

Must-do while in Oahu! Bought a ticket last-minute and was in the air a few hours later. We flew along Waikiki Beach, around Diamond Head and back along Honolulu before landing. So peaceful to see Hawaii from such a breathtaking vantage point. Highly recommend you do this right when you get to the island, so you can scope out places to visit on the ground.
