Makani Kai Helicopters

130 Iolana Pl, Honolulu, HI 96819

Aerial tours loft guests high over Oahu, arcing over Pearl Harbor and its World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument. Other highlights include Waikiki; the volcanic cone of Lēʻahi, aka Diamond Head; and the stunning red-earth fields of the island’s leeward side. A helicopter remains the best way to see Kaliuwa’a (the Sacred Falls), which have been closed since a tragic 1999 landslide. Hikers still sneak in, despite the danger and further damage. The park has been taking an increasingly hard line about trespassers, issuing hundreds of citations annually.
