Tom’s Tips – Oahu Helicopter Tours

May 5, 2021 | Activity Information

Let’s face it, Helicopter tours are expensive. If you can save any money on a flight, that’s a good thing. One way you can do that on Oahu is by focusing in on the sites that are most important to you. For many, a view of the North Shore and in particular the famous big wave surfing beaches like Waimea Bay, Banzai Pipeline and Sunset Beach fit on the short list of sites they would want to see from the air. These beaches are on the other side of the island from the main heliport area in Honolulu and in order to see them you essentially need to take a flight that circles the island. If however you take advantage of the small heliport located in Turtle Bay, which is already on the North Shore, you will be better off. You can take a much shorter, and consequently much less expensive flight, that will take you over parts of the beautiful North Shore and these amazing beaches. As a bonus, if you do this in the winter months you might be able to see some mammoth waves as well.
