Did the 40 minute Valleys and Waterfall tour. Pilot Chris (ex Marine Corp pilot) also flew us down the coastline and into Pearl Harbor. First time in a helicopter for my 15 and 17 year olds. They absolutely loved it as did I. These guys are Top Drawer all the way and deserve a 6th Star on the rating scale. Do it! Chris M. Phoenix, Arizona

If you are booking less than 48 hours in advance, please call to confirm availability.

All tours are open to the public and are sold by the individual seat. For the ultimate in social distancing, you can enjoy a private doors-off flight by purchasing four seats and leaving the front two seats next to the pilot unoccupied. By keeping the front two copilot seats open, this ensures your party remains segregated from our pilot. Seating Diagram
