North Shore Helicopter Tour

by Paradise Helicopters Duration 20m Nonrefundable No booking or credit card fees
per traveler Price is $199

Survey the breathtaking sights of Oahu's North Shore from the sky as you soar over the coastline in a helicopter. From your bird's-eye perspective, admire landmarks such as Kahana Bay, the Banzai Pipeline, and the pristine Kaliuwaa Falls, all while learning about the island from your expert pilot.

Make your way to the helipad northwest of Kahuku and take a seat on your state-of-the-art aircraft. After your pilot assists you in securing your headset, you lift off into the air, watching Oahu's golden beaches and lush rainforest drop away beneath you.

Discover why the North Shore is considered a surfing mecca as you fly over legendary spots known for monster winter waves, including Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay, and the notorious surf reef break known as the Banzai Pipeline. Then, head west to gaze down on the turquoise waters of Sharks Cove, a rocky inlet famous for its prime diving and snorkeling conditions.

Next, head inland and spend time gliding over the Koolau Mountains, an incredibly lush range covered in verdant rainforest. Among the dense foliage, you spy the plunging cascade of Kaliuwaa Falls, which has been closed to hikers and only viewable by air since 1999. Complete your journey around the eastern portion of the North Shore with a stunning view of the tranquil Kahana Bay before heading back to the helipad.
