Get Carried Away on a Helicopter

Beyond the CityOahu

On board a helicopter, it’s possible to lift off from a heliport, bypass populated areas and leave civilization behind in minutes. Look down and you’ll find yourself flying low over deep, impossibly tangled, uninhabitable canyons, where inland waterfalls drop hundreds of feet right outside your window.

Now and then, HELICOPTER TOURS will hover before a unique geographic or legendary site, with the pilot filling you in on all its interesting details. Noise-canceling headphones wipe out the roar of the helicopter rotors, and music, like the soundtrack from a movie, sets the mood. Some helicopter companies off er private tours, which range from short hops to Moloka‘i to longer multi-island jaunts.

For a doors-off experience, head to MAGNUM HELICOPTERS. Its Adventure Tour takes guests above the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, Diamond Head and Sacred Falls. It’s a thrill ride combined with a scenic tour.

Note: at press time, Magnum Helicopters has restricted its operations to private groups of up to four passengers. Call or email (info@ magnumhelicopters.com) for details and updates.
