Helicopter rides anywhere are always a thrilling and unforgettable experience. But Oahu helicopter tours are next level. There’s just so much to see. Thundering waterfalls, shimmering beaches, seaside cliffs, lush rainforests, and so much more. It feels like the breathtaking views and photo-ops are everywhere you look.
Unsurprisingly, Hawaii’s most popular helicopter tours soar over the active volcanoes of the Big Island. A bird’s-eye view of Kilauea, Mauna Loa, and the rugged volcanic landscape is a once-in-a-lifetime event. Helicopter tours also let you see so much of the island in under an hour, including remote and otherwise inaccessible areas. It’s perfect for day-trippers with limited time to explore the Big Island.
Oahu to Big Island Helicopter Tours: What to Expect
You’ll fly on an early morning interisland flight from Honolulu to Hilo. Once you arrive, your driver will meet you at the airport and take you on a tour of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
You’ll tour all the main sites and have a picnic lunch in the park. Then you will be taken to more sights in the Hilo area: a waterfall, a local business for some souvenirs, and drive by some historic sites in Hilo town. Afterward, your guide will drop you off at the airport in time for the highlight of the day: your 45-minute volcano helicopter tour. After the helicopter tour, you’ll have just enough time to catch dinner in Hilo town before your return flight to Honolulu.
Tours include roundtrip airfare from Honolulu, ground transportation, a fully narrated ground tour, a helicopter tour, admission fees, and lunch.
