OverviewTake your aerial adventure to the extreme on this open-door helicopter tour of Oahu’s North Shore from Turtle Bay. Aboard a 4-passenger chopper, dare to fly with the doors off as you soar over Oahu’s northeastern coastline. The 40-minute tour covers Kahana Bay, Waimea Bay, Banzai Pipeline, Sunset Beach, the Ko‘olau Mountains, Sacred Falls and Kaneohe Bay. And — if you’re feeling even more adventurous — upgrade to land on a mountain ridge for a scenic photo op.
Know More about this tourMake your own way to the Turtle Bay Resort helipad to meet your licensed pilot and prepare for an exhilarating doors-off helicopter flight. Settle into your seat aboard the 4-passenger, state-of-the-art helicopter without doors or windows to obstruct your vision, and listen to a quick safety briefing.
Then take to the skies over Oahu’s North Shore, listening to narration from your pilot via two-way headsets while the open air allows you to soak up the unbeatable views and provides a major rush of adrenaline. As you hover above the northeastern coastline, peer down on white-sand beaches nestled between lush green mountainsides. Search for the colossal breaks of famous Waimea Bay, and look down on big-wave surfing at Sunset Beach and Banzai Pipeline (depending on the season).
Continue over the Ko‘olau Mountains, one of Oahu’s two major mountain ranges, and marvel at 1,000-foot (305-meter) Sacred Falls (Kaliuwa’a), best viewed from above, as it is now closed to the public.
Venture on to Kaneohe Bay, the filming location for numerous movies and TV shows, most notably Gilligan’s Island, which was filmed on Coconut Island, one of five isles in this vast bay on Oahu's windward coast. From the air, view coral beds, learn about the fishponds built by Hawaiian chiefs, and look for Mokoli'i Island, also known as Chinaman's Hat.
Touch down at an exclusive landing site on a scenic ridge near Kualoa Ranch, where you can get out of the chopper for photo ops overlooking the gorgeous coast. You’ll spend approximately 15 minutes on the ground here.
