Listen to Hawaiian instruments such as the slack key guitar and ukulele as you explore the bandstand, then take a profile picture-worthy photo at Diamond Head's most photogenic location. Hear about the island's volcanic birth, and learn how the fire goddess Pele created it all. Look for fish at a popular snorkeling and scuba location, then hover to the Waikiki War Memorial and Natatorium. Glide along a walkway to San Souci beach as you take in the charming historic cottages and multi-million dollar mansions. Then you'll ride up to Diamond Head Lighthouse to marvel at the panoramic ocean vistas. Stop to listen to tiki pop culture comedy songs, ride through an Indian banyan that is over a century old, and learn about Hawaii's first and last kings. See the palm tree-lined Kaimana Beach.

Oahu: Exclusive Private Romantic Flight

2. Oahu: Exclusive Private Romantic Flight

Your private helicopter ride begins over the island’s South Shore for a chance to see the familiar Waikiki skyline and Diamond Head from a bird’s eye view.  Continue on to Hanauma Bay’s beautiful, sheltered waters, and the nearby cliffs and volcanic outcroppings. Rounding Makapu’u Point, follow the Windward Coast and its long stretches of white sand beaches and turquoise waters, leading to the three sharp peaks of Mt. Olomana, characteristic of its English translation, “divided hill.”  Halfway through the flight, you’ll descend gracefully into a stunning valley on the Windward Coast. Your 15-minute stay inside this private and lush oasis includes Wailua chocolates, a champagne toast, leis — all the making of lifelong memories, far away from the crowds at tourist attractions. Gaze across the verdant field, surrounded on all sides by misty mountains, rising towards the blue sky.  Hopping back into the helicopter, explore the forests and emerald cliffs of the awe-inspiring Ka’a’awa Valley, flying in close for a view of Oahu’s highest waterfall, Sacred Falls. The tour ends with a flyover of the Dole Pineapple Plantation and low-altitude views of Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. Propose in-flight or at the Ranch; your local partner will be sure to make it a total surprise so you get that “Yes!” you’re hoping for.

This is by far 1 of the best ways to see the island. This would be one of the first things to do to on your visit to the island. We did doors off, highly recommend! With your pilot/tour guide (Riley) will show you great places to visit during your stay to get the best experience of this beautiful island. Best of all is the private stop on the way, high up on the ridge alone (briefly, but worth it) to share this amazing view and moment in time with the one you love. Will definitely do this again...

We were so happy that they were so patient with us since we never rode a segway. But the sights we were taken to and the patience of the staff was awesome!! They took lots of pictures and they came out great. Thank you so much for all your kindness.

Andy was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The best way to see the island!

Absolutely fantastic! Our guide was really knowledgeable and super friendly and the route was great. Thanks

Had a blast on the hoverboards and enjoyed the beautiful sites!
