What you'll do

We'll start at the Castle and Cooke Aviation building by Honolulu Airport. You can drive there and park for free or catch an Uber, Lyft, or taxi. You need to arrive 45 minutes prior to your flight so you can receive a safety briefing, weigh in, and be ready to board.

Once you board the aircraft, the adventure begins. I or one of my licensed pilots will guide through a breathtaking tour of our incredible island. Along the way you will see the bright sand of Waikiki beach, the stunning vistas of Diamond Head and Koko Head, Hanauma Bay's clear waters, and Makapu'u Lighthouse all before we make the turn up the Windward Coast. The Windward Coast shines with Waimanalo Beach, Chinaman's Hat, Kaneohe Bay, and the incredible landscape of Ka'a'awa Valley as we make our way towards Sacred Falls and then on to the world famous North Shore. We will return to the airport by flying over the Dole Pineapple Plantation and end the tour with a fly-by of Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial.

Make sure that you bring your camera because you'll get the most incredible views. Especially since every seat on my helicopters are window seats! For an even better picture taking experience - and a whole lot more fun - choose our exciting doors off option! Don't worry if you don't catch everything on camera because we film the whole flight and offer you the chance to purchase the video.

I have been flying since I was 16 years old and have been flying helicopter tours on Oahu since 2011. It's the best job ever! I have contagious enthusiasm and professionalism which passes down to my entire staff. I am recognized in the aviation community for my skills both as a businesswoman and as an expert pilot commercially licensed to fly helicopters and airplanes.

I founded my business Novictor Helicopters in 2011 with the vision of sharing my passion for the Hawaiian Islands by air. My guests consistently rave about their flights with me and my pilot staff. They have called it a transformative experience where they gain a greater appreciation of Hawaii while learning about the ecology and history of the Islands. My ability to make people feel safe and comfortable while flying is a testament to our trusted name!

Where you'll be

Let's hop on a helicopter and go check out the Island of Oahu from the sky! One of the highlights of our 60 minute flight is Sacred Falls, located in a closed state park near the North Shore of Oahu. Sacred Falls has been closed since the rockfall that occurred on Mother's Day in 1999. The park encompasses Kaluanui gulch and the waterfalls at its end, after which it is named.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 9 reviews.

Amazing ride. Would definitely recommend to do at the beginning of your trip. Incredible way to see the island. Our pilot was a woman named Sarah. She’s so badass and knowledgeable.

Magical experience. I read a review that recommend we do this early in trip and so glad we did. Perfect way to see the island, history and where you're going want to spend more time. I'll do it again next time I'm back!

Amazing! Recommend taking this tour early on during your visit. Nicole really knows her stuff. As Skydivers, we normally jump out so staying in for the whole ride was tough! Just kidding! She is a safe friendly pilot that points out so many wonderful places. Looking forward to exploring those places during the rest of our stay!

Loved this! It was an incredible experience but it’s also something that needs to be done at the beginning of your trip to Honolulu. It gave me a good familiarization with the island and great ideas of what to do while I’m here! Great staff and very professionally run!

We got picked up from our hotel and instantly our driver made us feel welcome. When we got to the airport we were briefed about safety for our flight. Paul was our helicopter pilot and we were able to get really close to Sacred Falls. The feeling when we were by the falls was magical; well worth the money. I'd highly recommend the experience to family and friends.

Welcoming and friendly staff. I wasn’t prepared for the windy trip, so one of the staff kindly offered her sweater for me to borrow for the hour ride. Very much appreciated. Bring a sweatshirt if you get cold easily!! It was an incredible ride with the most exquisite and memorable views! We even got to see dozens of seas turtles from a above. The pilot was knowledgable about all the sites and even shared personal stories about his up-bringing there. A truly once in a lifetime experience. Highly recommend!
