Nature’s Grand Ceremony is how we view the world-renowned Oahu sunset from the sky. Here you will be given a front row seat to Waikiki’s most spectacular show as your helicopter takes you above it’s famous shores. Passing the famed skyline as it basks in the dim evening light, you’ll fly to the top of Diamond Head and watch as elongating shadows reach from its peak and out to the dark blue waters beyond. Flying back towards the city, you’ll witness as the waning sun emblazons the sky and silhouettes the expansive city skyline against gorgeous hues of pink, orange, red, and yellow. As the sun reaches the horizon and the blue sky fades to darkness, your flight will continue to Pearl Harbor for a twilight pass of the USS Arizona Memorial and an end to another perfect day in beautiful Hawaii nei.

"Beautiful sunset & rugged mountains."

We chose to do a 20 minute sunset flight over Pearl Harbour, Honolulu and out to Kane Ohe Bay. Our pilot Chris, gave an informative commentary and pointed out the major landmarks as we flew amongst the jagged mountain tops. To fully appreciate the ruggedness of the mountains and the beauty of Oahu, this is a really exciting way to fulfil the need. Don’t forget to ask the pilot to take the doors off the helicopter to get the “wind in the hair” experience. By the way, we never felt unsafe for one moment. Thank you Chris and team.

"Fabulous Christmas Day helicopter tour "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 01, 2019
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 !

Frequently Asked Questions about Waikiki Sunset Helicopter Tour Doors Off or On

How does the free shuttle work?
For hotel pick-up, please select your hotel from the list on the form after submitting your order. Hotel pickups are provided approximately 30 – 60 minutes prior to departure time, exact pickup time will be advised on reconfirmation.

Please 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. Please note that hats are not allowed on board 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.
