A New View of Oahu - A Helicopter Tour of a lifetime
There’s nothing quite like holidays spent enjoying the Hawaiian Islands…Mele Kalikimaka anyone?
And while we fully embrace a good jaunt about the island of Oahu caravanning with the girls and chasing waves along the coast, something had us itching to turn things up a notch. So, we took that idea to new heights, literally. We booked a trip with Paradise Helicopters out of Turtle Bay Resort and took an unforgettable excursion along the coast from Oahu’s North Shore to Waikiki.
As we hugged the coast of Honolulu looking below at the tiny surfers gliding towards the Royal Hawaiian, overhead shots of the fallen USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, and cruised over Diamond Head, we knew the wind in our faces and ‘doors-off’ option was the only way to go to truly enjoy the magic from overhead.
As we flew further along the coast, catching views of the Chinaman’s Hat and ventured inland overlooking lush pineapple groves and the famed Haiku Stairs, more commonly referred to as the ‘Stairway to Heaven’, and back to the waves of Pipeline on the North Shore, we were reminded of the abundant beauty this island holds both in our hearts and from up above. A truly new view of Oahu that we won’t soon forget….
