Fly Doors Off Around Oahu, Just Like Magnum P.I.!
This is our 50-minute tour of Oahu, taking in some of the iconic sites on this amazing island. This is similar to our VIP private tour but is a little shorter so not as much time at the iconic sites and a slightly reduced route!
Strap in and get ready for breathtaking beauty! Fly doors off around Oahu just like the TV show Magnum P.I.! Departing from Honolulu airport, begin your helicopter adventure by flying over Waikiki’s shoreline, where the modern metropolis of Honolulu meets the white sands of Waikiki’s iconic beaches.
Your tour continues down the leeward coast to Diamond Head, Koko Head, and the historic Makapuu Point Lighthouse. Continuing north up the windward coast, you pass over Kailua Beach, the famous landmark Chinaman’s Hat, and the pristine waters of Kaneohe Bay.
The flight continues north to Kaaawa (Jurassic) Valley and Sacred Falls. Next are breathtaking views of Oahu’s famous North Shore. Take in spectacular views of Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay, home of Oahu’s legendary monster waves. Your tour ends with a slow flyover of Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona.
Experience the ultimate Magnum P.I. helicopter tour!
