Genesis Helicopters give Oahu's visitors a bird's-eye perspective of the idyllic Hawaiian island. The outfit offers two primary tours: the longer Waimea Tour, about 60–65 minutes, and the Le'ahi Tour, about 20 minutes.
On the Waimea Tour, the chopper lifts off from Honolulu International Airport before cruising past the ships bobbing in Honolulu Harbor, the volcanic crater at Diamond Head, the Dole Plantation pineapple fields, the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, and the famous surfers of the North Shore. It's also the only way to see the dramatic Sacred Falls waterfall as the area has been closed to hikers since 1999. The Le'ahi Tour includes all views of Honolulu Harbor, Waikiki, Diamond Head, Punchbowl, and Pearl Harbor.
For both trips, passengers have the choice of leaving the chopper's doors on or taking them off, which gives them the opportunity to experience the sights without any barriers and to high-five any passing birds.
