We create unique and fun helicopter tours to immerse guests in the natural beauty of Hawaii.

A truly Hawaiian experience.

Paradise Helicopters is a locally owned and operated company founded in Hawai‘i in 1997. Over our years of operations in the Hawaiian Islands, our many relationships and partnerships within the communities in which we operate allow us to offer much more than lava, rainbows, and waterfalls. We leave you with an authentic piece of Hawai‘i – the culture and Aloha spirit that make the islands unique.

The world’s most trusted pilots.

We have the best pilots, period. We even have several former “Marine One” presidential pilots serving three United States presidents. Above all, our pilots have the necessary skills, experience, and credentials to keep guests safe, every time.  Our team is well versed in Hawaiian geology, history, and culture, and aims to provide a rich and rewarding experience that is fun!

Hawaii’s best remote landings.

We can fly you to some of the most private and remote locations in Hawaii, and land! We offer the best landing spots because we engage with the community, local Hawaiian businesses, non-profit organizations, and charities. The relationships we have built over the years allow us to “access the inaccessible” in a uniquely Hawaiian way, which no other company can replicate.

Our team of exceptional pilots show you Hawaii’s amazing sights!
