We apologize, but we have temporarily suspended our Waikiki shuttle operations until further notice. Please taxi or ride share to our location. Mahalo.

This activity will end right where it started.
Climb aboard a state-of-the-art helicopter that lacks only one thing: doors. This allows you unobstructed views as you tour the island and makes for fantastic photo opportunities. Meet your expert pilot, who will narrate the experience as you fly over Oahu's landmarks. Choose standard open seating or opt for First Class seating for a more intimate experience including you and one other person.

Start by soaring over Honolulu Harbor, the Aloha Tower, Magic Island, Keehi Lagoon and Ala Moana Beach Park. Head out of the highly developed Honolulu area and towards the greener side of Oahu, which includes waterfalls, mountains and verdant valleys.

See the soft white Waimanalo Beach and the coral formations of Kaeohe Bay, striking when viewed from the air. See the Chinaman's Hat before heading to Ka'a'awa Valley, where a dozen major motion pictures have been filmed.

On the east end of the island lies Hanauma Bay, the remnants of a volcano crater that's now a marine sanctuary and popular snorkel location. See the Halona Blowhole, Sandy Beach, Makapuu Point and its lighthouse, followed by Sea Life Park.

The island's central plain is host to the world's largest agricultural maze at the Dole Plantation. View Sacred Falls, a sheer waterfall with a 1,000-foot (300-meter) drop. Finish your Oahu helicopter tour with a panoramic view of Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial.

A Breathtaking Aerial Tour

A careful instructional process prior to boarding the helicopter and the measures that the entire staff take to ensure that their passengers have a safe and pleasant experience. Perhaps a different price strategy can be taken to sell photo and video content.

So worth it! My boyfriend and I are afraid of heights but this was the most memorable from our trip. Our pilot Evan was awesome, even the guy that helped us prepare for our flight. I forgot his name! But he kept us company when the other couple was an hour late from check in. It gets pretty cold so wear a jacket (preferably without a hoodie since mine kept flying everywhere) and clip your bangs because mine was all over the the place. The view of the island was breathtaking. We will definitely book again!

The staff was really awesome. Felt safe. The pilot was very knowledgeable and had a fun style of presenting information. Kevin deserves a raise for sporting a magnum mustache. Doors off was the way to go and an awesome experience. The staff were so attentive really went above and beyond.

A helicopter tour is something my wife and I absolutely wanted to wrap up our honeymoon with and we are thrilled we chose magnum. From the ground crew (Steve), to our pilot (Brandon), they couldn’t have been better. A beautiful experience I’d recommend to anyone considering a helicopter tour over the island of Oahu!

Our pilot was personable and informative. He made sure to rotate the helicopter so both sides could see points of interest. There was sun and a little rain and he was able to maneuver so we all saw a rainbow below and around us. Awesome for my teens first helicopter ride.

I took my 62 year old mom for her birthday. Honestly the whole experience was breathtaking. The staff was so sweet and assured we were safe and ready to fly. Our pilot Herb was so knowledgeable and his voice was so calming in such an intense setting. You see everything up there. I would totally recommend this adventure for anyone looking for a once in a lifetime experience. Ps wear a jacket. It gets chilly w the wind.
