Waikiki helicopter tours and private charters

Experience Oahu’s most iconic sights from above with a Waikiki helicopter tour.

Traveling to Waikiki, Hawaii? Fly in a helicopter above the beach like no other. The only way to experience the best of Oahu is by air with a Waikiki helicopter tour.  There is much more to see in Oahu when you fly above Waikiki’s famed beaches in a helicopter.  A Waikiki helicopter ride will give you an amazing view of Oahu’s most iconic sites and landmarks.  See Waikiki’s high-rise hotels lining the shores and Oahu’s popular surf beaches.  

There is nothing like the exhilaration and excitement of riding in a helicopter over Waikiki for the first time. We guarantee that your Waikiki helicopter tour will be one of your most memorable experiences on Oahu. The fun and excitement starts just as you lift off from the airport. The entire island of Oahu becomes accessible in a short period of time which makes a helicopter ride one of the best things to do on Oahu.  You can see more in an hour than you could see in an entire day driving around the island. Flying over Waikiki also allows you to capture unique aerial photographs and videos that can’t be replicated any other way.

Flights take off from the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL), which is located just minutes from Waikiki. We have a dedicated check-in counter at the airport where you can check in. You will then be given a safety briefing that prepares you for your flight over Waikiki. You will be met by our friendly staff and escorted to the helicopter, where your pilot will be waiting to greet you and start your Waikiki helicopter tour.

As you lift off from the helipad, your Waikiki helicopter tour begins! Once the blades start spinning and you lift off from the ground, you will get a birds eye view of Oahu that is impossible to experience any other way. Your pilot will point out all of Oahu’s most famous sights and landmarks as you fly past them. The flight path we use gives you an amazing view of the entire island, making it easy to see everything the island has to offer!

Known as the “gathering place” because of its central location between the other islands, Oahu is Hawaii’s third largest island. Oahu is home to the state capital of Honolulu, which houses many government offices and buildings, including the state capitol building, and it is also where most of the state’s population resides. The island is home to world-famous Waikiki Beach, as well as Pearl Harbor.  It is easy to see why Oahu has something for everyone! From pristine beaches to iconic monuments and war memorials, Oahu offers visitors a chance to see and do everything. Take a romantic flight above Waikiki Beach and get a sense of the lay of the land for an experience you will remember for a lifetime.
