  • This was the highlight of my two week vacation in Hawaii. Getting to see the island from the air was awesome. Have a great flight good narration of the island was well worth the price.

  • Just like the opening sequence to Magnum PI, you fly over the island. Incredible views, daring heights. Evan, the pilot, was excellent. I'm profoundly deaf and heard nothing after we took off but I do know the other passengers enjoyed the commentary. Because I was unsure when Evan was going to bank as I couldn't hear him, I was always holding on tight which possibly took away some of my enjoyment level.
    I look forward to watching my DVD of the trip and re-living the experience :
    Overall, an experience not to be missed.

  • My family thought this was the best thing they did while visiting Oahu. Well worth experiencing!

  • I bought this tour for my husband and son to use on our trip to Hawaii. The day before the booked ride the date had to be changed due to maintenance issues. That made minor issues for the other trips we had planned in our week there. However, my son and husband absolutely loved the flight and would recommend it to everyone that visits Ohau. We had been to Pearl Harbor previously but they enjoyed being able to see so much more of that, than you can from the ground. They were impressed with every single part of the flight and very impresssed with their female pilot sorry, can remember her name. We would give this a 100 thumbs up.

  • I was a little apprehensive about the helicopter ride, but it was a thrill of a lifetime, and I would definitely do it again. The beautiful view from the ride was incredible. A must do for anyone visiting the beautiful island.

  • This was a highlight of our Hawaiian vacation. There were 4 total people on this tour so my wife and I saw in the front seat with the pilot. I was a little concerned since only a little more than have of my butt was actually in the seat. That just added to the excitement. The pilot was great and explained the whole island to us as we flew over it - yes, you fly around the whole island. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes a thrill.

  • This was such an amazing experience!!! I will definitely do this again in the future! Our pilots name was Evan, and he was informative, funny, and a wonderful guide. It truly added to making this the trip of a lifetime. Thank you!!

  • This is must do activity. The pilot was fantastic, funny and professional My grandchildren really rocked on this joy ride around the Island of Oahu. I would definitely do this again when I return.

  • this was everything!!!

  • Jim was our pilot and he was amazing. One of the members of our group was a little uneasy about having open doors and Jim was reassuring, comforting, and made the experience fantastic for all of us. The views and history we received were top notch!
