We did the 5pm doors off experience. It was amazing. I would recommend doing this early in your trip because it gives you so many ideas of where you should go. There are parts of Oahu that can only be seen by helicopter, and it’s beautiful.

Wonderful ride. The weather was bad, so we didn't go to the North Shore and we didn't see any waterfalls, but the East side was beautiful and green and coming out of the valley was breathtaking. Excellent pilot (Sarah). Totally worth it even with the bad weather.

Oh My! This staff is exceptional!! They went above and beyond to accompany me when our original flight was grounded due to mechanical issues. Due to extenuating circumstances, a pilot came In early the next day to take us up. They allowed us to bring our luggage and stored it for us. They went above and beyond. The flight was amazing!! I am so glad that I did not miss this once in a lifetime opportunity as I will likely never pass this way again. Mahalo Nui Loa!!

Absolutely the best way to see Hawaii. Hard to hear with doors off and to understand the pilot but the view was amazing! I wouldn't buy the video afterwards unless you just want to see the top of your heads the whole trip. Very disappointed in the video for $72!!!

We chose to ride with the doors off on a beautiful afternoon and the experience was truly exceptional. The flight takes you through parts of Oahu which you can’t reach any other way. Our pilot, Andrew, was very experienced and courteous. This was one of the top best experiences of our Hawaii family vacation.
