What To Expect

Select a convenient departure time when booking, and begin your tour at Rainbow Helicopters located in Honolulu International Airport.

Climb aboard your helicopter and enjoy your pre-selected choice of a “doors on” or “doors off” flight as you take off above this tropical Hawaiian island. Cruise above some of Oahu’s most famous landmarks, starting with a bird’s eye view of the Honolulu Harbor and a flight over the island’s south shore.

You’ll then zoom above the famous Diamond Head crater before proceeding above the clear waters of Manalua Bay and the vibrant reefs of Hanauma Bay on Oahu’s eastern shore. From there you’ll pass near the tiny lighthouse above the cliffs of Makapu’u and then trace the Ko’olau Mountains heading toward Lanikai Beach and the “Chinamans’ Hat.” Continuing your scenic ride, travel up into Ka'a'awa Valley and get a panoramic look at Sacred Falls, Oahu’s tallest waterfall.

Finish up your breathtaking helicopter experience by cruise over to the iconic Pearl Harbor site, where you’ll get an up-close look at the iconic USS Arizona Memorial before heading back to the airport.

We did the doors off tour and had a great time. The pilot pointed out a ton of sights and giving history and background on the sights we were seeing as we went. He would do a small circle at many of them so everyone would have a good view.

Loved getting to see the whole island from the air! All the beautiful places, main attractions and private, hidden gems. Where else can you experience this all in one spot. Our pilot, Ryan, was great! He knew the history of the island and was awesome at telling us about it, was very friendly and an excellent navigator of the helicopter. Highly recommend this adventure!
First time helicopter ride!

Staff was helpful & friendly & Michael our pilot was amazing! Enjoyable experience! Give them a try! Safety is first w/ Viator!

Sitting up front is the way to go next to the pilot for a panoramic view or a door seat in the back. Do this early in your trip to get your bearings.
Robert_D, Apr 2024
All was good. Sights from a helicopter is just so different and beautiful than from the ground. Water falls was a hidden treasure
Fun & Informative

Great way to get a bird’s eye view of the island and learn about the island in a quick glance! Great views!
Beautiful views!
Anissa_T, Mar 2024
This ride was an amazing! Although, I was extremely terrified at first due to scared of heights, our pilot, Emma, was extremely calming, and confident in everything going on which made me feel at ease. Emma is a beast! The whole guide of the island was amazing. I would definitely do this tour again. Staff is amazing and very accommodating.
Outstanding experience, you will love it!
Heather_C, Mar 2024
This was an outstanding experience from beginning to end! Great communication about our booking, and when we got to the location to check in, they encouraged us to do the doors off tour. Though it was our first time in a helicopter, doors off was the best choice! Felt safe and comfortable the whole time, our pilot was a great tour guide as well, and this was the highlight of my trip. Highly recommend!
Best view of Oahu
Alia_E, Mar 2024
The pilot was talking with us the whole time and told us fun facts about the places we saw. He answered all the questions as well. The view was great and even thought we had a little bit rain it was a great experience!

Enjoyed this flight. It was thought of at the last minute. Didn't know it was being recorded. Need to let riders know, so they can make sure they are being seen. I purchase tape but was not seen due to sitting in the back. Camera on the person sitting in front sit only. Wasted money.
Highly recommend
Ashley_D, Feb 2024
Everything was smooth and seamless. The staff team served us immediately with equipment and instructions immediately upon arrival. We flew with the doors off and we highly recommend that experience. Our flight captain Michael was informative and amazing! Aloha & Mahalo. Ashley

My husband and I took a "doors off" tour and it was awesome! We had a terrific pilot, Jojo. He was very friendly and informative. We were able to get a wonderful look at the beaches from Honolulu to the North Shore and a lot in between. This was one of the highlights of our trip! G&G
Amazing views of Oahu!...
