Quick Details | Doors-OFF Helicopter

  • Island: OAHU
  • Duration: 60-minute flight, 20-minute landing at Kualoa Ranch
  • Doors off?: Yes.

Our Experience

We’re here at Turtle Bay Resort and we’re checking out Paradise Helicopters. Today we’re doing a 60 minute doors-off flight with a special landing at Kualoa Ranch, also known as Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, Jurassic Valley. We’re going to take you guys with us as we explore the island by air!

For us, we were already staying at Turtle Bay. You can check out this video if you’d like to see our hotel walk through:

From here, we took a golf cart to the heliport, less than five minutes, and we’d arrived. They had rentals for your camera, phone, ginger if you get motion sickness, and of course a quick safety briefing and then we were ready to go! Our flight was coming up next.

Our Flight

Our helicopter ride has been absolutely phenomenal! We started up on the north shore at Turtle Bay Resort. For this 60-minute flight, we flew for about maybe 40-45 minutes then we landed here at Kualoa Ranch and it’s absolutely gorgeous.

You’re here for about 20 minutes and then after that we’re gonna head back up to Turtle Bay. Hands down one of the best helicopter flights that I’ve ever been on. The landing makes it absolutely gorgeous.

How to Get There

What to Pack

  • It is a doors-off flight. Wear/pack a windbreaker jacket.
  • You’ll need to wear closed toed shoes
  • Any cell phone or camera must be attached with a wrist/neck strap.
