Description

from Isle Sights Unseen Helicopter Tour Doors Off or On
A unique side of Oahu awaits when you take to the sky to discover the sights you have yet to see.

Your tour will begin as you fly over Honolulu’s famous harbor as the Aloha Tower welcomes arriving ships into the port – just as it has done for nearly 100 years. Heading further down the coast, you’ll pass the beaches of Waikiki and then do a slow loop around majestic Diamond Head, peaking into the center of what is arguably the most famous landmark in all of Hawaii. Then, with wide open Maunalua Bay passing beneath you, you’ll reach the island’s rugged eastern shores and Hanauma Bay’s well-known reefs. Following the rocky coast, you’ll reach the little lighthouse sitting atop the cliffs of Makapu’u and pass the longest stretch of beach on the entire island of Oahu. You’ll then travel up the Windward Coast, to visit world-renowned Lanikai Beach and the aptly-named Chinaman’s Hat. You’ll explore the lush forests and emerald cliffs of the awe-inspiring Ka'a’awa Valley and fly in close for a view of Oahu’s highest waterfall, Sacred Falls. The tour will end with a visit to the Dole Pineapple Plantation and low-altitude views of Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. A side of Oahu many do not know will reveal itself with a tour of these sights unseen.

We booked a semi private helicopter tour for Christmas Day. We opted for doors off. The company was very professional. Weighing everyone, check in , safety info and then out the copter . Our pilot was Jessica and she was fantastic, giving both the geographical points as well as antidotes and some personal info like she’s training to do a mountain hike. Etc. she was a pro, holding still for us to grab pics. Highly recommend !

"A Great Way To See Oahu..."

Because of limited time available to us during a recent visit to Honolulu my wife and I decided to take a helicopter flight around the island of Oahu to get a better view of this beautiful place. We booked with a local firm, Novictor Helicopters, on their “60 minute Island Spectacular Tour” flying out of Honolulu airport, with hotel pickup and drop off included in the rate. The Novictor setup is very professional and we were given a short safety briefing before being assigned to our specific helicopters and pilots. From the off the pilot did his best to point out specific landmarks and places of interest without overdoing it and we both found his narrative interesting and informative. Flying just under cloud level gave us a brilliant view of the island and its coastline and flying close up to the mountains provided a better feel for the rugged terrain and inaccessibility of the place. One of the high points of the tour was a flight over historic Pearl Harbor with excellent views of the USS Arizona Memorial, USS Missouri, USS Bowfin, Ford Island airfield and the great naval base that is todays Pearl Harbor. But the lasting impression on us both was “Oahu really is a beautiful island”. Helicopter flights are not cheap, but if you are short of time when visiting Hawaii then they are a great alternative way to see a lot of an island in a short space of time. This was a great experience and well worth the outlay.

Frequently Asked Questions about Isle Sights Unseen Helicopter Tour Doors Off or On

How does Free shuttle work?
For hotel pick-up, please call the number listed on your voucher after purchase to set-up a time. Hotel pickups are provided approximately 30 – 60 minutes prior to departure time, exact pickup time will be advised on reconfirmation.

Note: if you are booking within 24 hours of the flight departure time, we cannot guarantee hotel pick-up. Once your purchase is processed, we will send you information (phone number, email address, etc.) to coordinate pick-up.

What time of day has the best visibility for tours? 
Welcome to paradise! Hawaii enjoys beautiful weather mornings, afternoons, and evenings. So the real question is, “When do you want to fly?” Of course, we do keep our eye constantly on the weather reports to make sure your helicopter flight is the best possible experience.

Is photography allowed?
Not only is photography allowed, but it’s also encouraged! You’ll see Hawaii as you’ve never seen it before!

What clothing should I wear? 
The temperature aboard the helicopter is very comfortable during flights—t-shirts and shorts are just fine. However, if you choose a doors-off tour, your flight will be windy and cold so jackets and sweatshirts are required and long pants are recommended.

Note: hats are not allowed onboard your flight. Your hat might blow off your head and fly up into the rotors and that is very unsafe. You may leave any hats in the office during our flight.

Is it guaranteed that I will see everything listed on the tour? 
We try to fly over every landmark listed on your selected tour. However, flying in a helicopter is not as simple as watching a movie. Once in a while, we have to contend with poor visibility, strong winds, or other weather that may prevent us from taking our normal route. We will do our best to cover the listed landmarks as well as accommodate any requests that you may have.

I get motion sickness frequently. Should I take medicine before the flight? 
Our flights are very smooth; this is not a theme park ride! So many people who presume they may have an issue feel just fine during the tour. However, if you are prone to motion sickness you might want to take a motion sickness pill just as a precaution. We want you to enjoy your flight!

Are young children allowed on flights?
Yes, children 24 months and under do well on flights. We even have baby headsets for them to wear. Please be aware that FAA regulations require a full-fare seat for children 24 months and over. Children 24 months and under are welcome to sit on the lap of a responsible adult at no charge.

How experienced are your pilots? 
We employ some of the most skilled pilots in the state and hold them to the highest standards. Our pilots are very experienced in their knowledge of Hawaiian skies, climates, and terrain. Their abilities will put you at ease as you fly over the beaches, mountains, and sights of the Islands. What are your hours of operation? We are open for business every day from 6:30 am to 10:00 pm, Hawaii Standard Time.
