EUPHORIA! This experience created a forever memory in the best way possible! I thought I was afraid to fly in a helicopter even though I’ve been flying frequently on airplanes all my life. All my fears vanished as soon as I experienced the high caliber of the personnel working on the ground and their attention to safety procedures as presented to us passengers prior to flight, The pilot, Josh, was exsellent and made sure each of us understood how to use the headphones/speakers, safety belts, and door window vents prior to flight and answered all our questions. I’m a local who never realized how much I was missing until I viewed it all from above on this magical ride!

We took the Magnum Experience tour and loved every minute! The staff is super cautious and we never felt things were handled unsafely. We would highly recommend this company and tour!

My husband & I went on the Magnum PI experience ride around the Island of Oahu. Everything was outstanding. We did the first ride of the day because it can get hot in the helicopter. Our pilot offered to take the doors off but the couple in the back were too afraid. Our pilot was excellent. The views were spectacular. We had to land in Honolulu Airport to get clearance to fly along Waikiki which was so worth it. Seeing Pearl Harbor from the air was breathtaking. This was a complete trip around & across the island. You truly get to appreciate how beautiful Oahu is from seeing it from above.

When my husband suggested a helicopter ride on our recent Hawaiian vacation, I thought he was crazy! We thought about it briefly & said "why not?". I researched on-line & found there were options like doors on or off for the tour. WHAT??? We booked our tour for 4 with Paradise Helicopters...doors off of course! We were greeted by Daniel, who gave us thorough safety instruction & equipment. Then we met our pilot, Josh. He is a very experienced pilot who has great people skills & showed us fabulous views of Oahu. We all felt very safe the entire time & believe it was one of the highlights of our trip. We highly recommend Paradise Helicopters!

We had the most amazing time flying around Oahu. We flew above pods of dolphins and whales, volcanic craters, movie sets and had a scenic landing with a breath taking view! I would highly recommend doing the doors off experience, there is nothing like hanging your legs out of a helicopter in paradise! Thank you to our Pilot and the team!
