Great way to experience Hawaii!

Reviewed by: Anna Maliarenko, 2017/08/30

My family and I have been to Hawaii several times, but have never been on a helicopter tour. I am so happy we chose to do this for the first time with Paradise Helicopters because it was a great time from start to finish. Initially, I was scared of flying in such a small aircraft, but our pilot Jay was so great and informative that my fears quickly disappeared and I was able to enjoy myself and see the island in a way that would be impossible from land. Additionally, there were complementary ginger chews and motion sickness bags in the helicopter which also helped make me feel at ease. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see Hawaii in a fun and unique way!

Yesterday, my family and I had a blast on the Circle Island helicopter tour! All staff were extremely friendly and knowledgable, making us feel safe and at-ease despite it being all of our first times in a helicopter. Jay, our captain, took us around the whole island and had a wealth of information about each area we flew over. He also readily answered any questions we had throughout the tour. The whole experience was thorough, executed seamlessly, and will surely be a highlight of our vacation.
It was an excellent way to experience Oahu, and we would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the island.

Seeing Oahu Like Never Before

Reviewed by: Randall F., 2016/11/28

This was a simply breathtaking afternoon. Oahu is extremely varied, with cliffs, valleys and beaches, alternating between shades of blue, green, white and red. You don't really notice it from the ground, but seeing it all from high above has given me a new appreciation for the island. Our pilot made us feel safe and secure the entire time, and the chance to do an exciting landing along a narrow ridge at the top of Ka'a'awa Valley only made the experience that much more incredible.

5 Star Experience

Reviewed by: mcavalheiro, 2016/11/28

Great experience overall, from the ground crew to the flight. This is definitely thee best way to see the island and the best option if you are staying on the West Side of the island / Ko Olina resorts.

The pilot is very experienced, polite and knowledgeable. The flight was very exciting and gave us an amazing sights of the island. Even if you don't get a window seat you still get a great view. The aircraft have a two way communication between the pilot and the guest, so while he is talking storied about the location you can ask questions and he will answer.
Oahu is just an wonderful place, we saw Hanauma Bay; Diamond Head; Waikiki beach; Pearl Harbor; the unique Kaneohe bay and the sandbar; the mountains at Kualoa Ranch are mesmerizing, makes you feel like you are at Jurassic Park; the famous beaches on the North Shore, Kaena Point and the beautiful West Coast.
If you have the chance add the land on top of Kualoa Ranch mountains, the pilot surprised us with champagne, drinks and chocolate covered strawberries. Very romantic addition to the tour.
It's a long flight, make sure to bring a bottle of water and got to the bathroom before the flight.

I would recommend Paradise Helicopters to everybody!
