While most circle island tours take up a full day, this deluxe circle island helicopter tour allows you to see the whole island of Oahu in one hour! Depart from Kalaeloa Airport on Oahu’s west side in a Bell 407 aircraft for a smooth ride. Fly over Pearl Harbor with views of the Arizona Memorial, and continue on to Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head. Along the eastern coastline you'll have breathtaking views of Hanauma Bay and Makapu’u Lighthouse. Then soar through lush green valleys including Ka’a’awa Valley, home of Kualoa Ranch where numerous movies and TV shows have been filmed, then hover over Kaluanui Valley for a unique view of Sacred Falls, which is inaccessible by land. Other sites include Turtle Bay, Chinaman's Hat, famous surf beaches, and Kaena Point. This helicopter tour is the best way to see it all!
