Paradise Helicopters - Oahu Circle Island Experience

This is the perfect Oahu helicopter tour if you are staying in the Ko Olina resort area, located on Oahu's west shore. During this memorable flight, you’ll circle the entire island of Oahu and enjoy plenty of great photo opportunities. The first point of interest you'll see is Pearl Harbor, the Arizona Memorial and the Missouri Battleship. Next, soar high above bustling Honolulu Harbor, beautiful Waikiki and iconic Diamond Head.

Continuing east, you'll overfly Koko Crater and Hanauma Bay, as well as Sandy Beach and Makapu'u Lighthouse. You'll then head north where you'll soon see the fantastic coral formations and sandbars of Kaneohe Bay. Mokoli'i Island (Chinaman's Hat) is another beautiful sight. Then take a peak into "Jurassic Park" – or, as it has been known locally for hundreds of years, Ka'a'awa Valley. 

Next up is the 1,000-foot cascade of Sacred Falls, which is sure to stun you and can be seen only from the air. Then you'll see the world-famous surfing spots of the North Shore – Sunset Beach, Pipeline and Waimea Bay. As you round Kaena Point you get a glimpse of the serene Waianae Mountain Range, Oahu's hidden gem. Beautiful Makaha Valley comes into view as you are a few minutes away from arriving back to Ko Olina.
