About this Honolulu, Hawaii tour
Referred to by the locals as Lahi, Hawaiian for "brow of the tuna," the distinctive shape of Diamond Head defines the southern horizon for residents and visitors of nearby Honolulu and Waikiki Beach. While there are numerous ways to get to the top of the summit, none is as more exciting than a helicopter ride that explores all the best that Oahu has to offer on the way.
As you fly towards the extinct volcanic crater of Diamond Head, Waikiki Beach lies directly below your flight path, and that viewpoint makes it easy to see why many consider it one of the most famous 2-mile stretches of beach in the world.
Circling Lahi's crater, you will get a real feel for the explosive power that created this iconic Hawaiian monument over 300,000 years ago. The crater's symmetry suggests that the eruption was quick, and was over in as few as a couple of days, but the volcanic blast got a lot of geological bang for its buck. The explosion also created such Oahu landmarks like Punchbowl crater, Koko Head, Manana Island, and the crescent-shaped snorkeling paradise known as Hanauma Bay.
You won't have to imagine those seismographic effects, however, because the pilot of your Eco-Star copter will soon be heading eastward to continue your aerial tour passing by each of these highlights.
After skirting the coastline as far as Káne'ohe Bay, you will turn inland for a flight over the Nuuana Valley Rainforest and its magnificent Sacred Falls, before ending your tour with an overpass of historic Pearl Harbor. In addition to the solemn USS Arizona Monument that symbolizes the sacrifices made on that "Day of Infamy", the USS Missouri sits moored just 500-yards away as a reminder of the eventual victory that came from that surprise attack on December 7, 1941.
The Gathering Place
Oahu, the third-largest Hawaiian island, is home to a tremendous amount of majestic natural beauty, thus making it the most visited of all the Hawaiian Islands! On your helicopter ride, you’ll see everything from waterfalls to valleys to rainforests.
