Pilot Jim and the whole Magnum crew is fantastic. Colin (C J) took great care of usright from the moment we walked in the door. Pilot Jim is a wealth of knowledge giving the tour and was very sensitive to a jittery passenger we had on our ride.

It was a great tour and experience of a lifetime seeing the sights of Ohahu from the Magnum Helicopter.

We had such an amazing time up in the air with Pilot Jim. This was my sister's first time going on a helicopter tour and she was extremely at ease. I will recommend this company and pilot to any one of my friends that are planning on visiting Hawaii in the near future. Also the driver that picked us up for the tour was very informative and friendly. He answered all questions and concerns that we might have had. This company is not only gracious, but they are also great at putting a person at ease.

This was an amazing way to see the Island from a different perspective. The day we did this was very windy, so I was a little apprehensive. The DOORS OFF was a little concerning but only for a short time. When you are up there it’s just brilliant. As we had doors off, it was actually very cold, so wear long pants and sleeves. This WAS a highlight of our trip and so very happy we did it.

I won't lie, this is not a cheap activity to do. But, if you want an amazing view, great time and enjoyable guide to share lots of info with you, then this is well worth the money.
Mountains, waterfalls, city, beaches, diamond head, dole plantation and more is what you get to see. Don't bother with a 15 minute ride, go for the 45 or 1 hour long trip and you won't regret it.
We had a bit of rain over the mountains and it just added to the fun and excitement. Can do doors on or off, small aircraft for a couple or up to 6 in large aircraft. We had 5 in this and were comfortable.

Four of us participated in the doors off helicopter tour with Magnum Helicopters. They are first class all the way. Two of us were very reluctant as we are not fond of heights. Pilot Jim was the best and was very attentive to our needs (slowing down, explaining everything, telling jokes). The time went very fast and Pilot Jim was excellent at maneuvering the helicopter and was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend booking with Magnum.
