Some of the best views of our planet happen from hundreds of feet above it. This holds true for nearly any area. When we take a step back—and up—things may look smaller, yet the world seems even bigger from this elevated perspective. And, indeed, your own personal perspective can be “elevated” when you are able to see the world from a few hundred feet up—or higher. Hawaii is a particularly great spot for a a tour above the skyline. Helicopter tours give memories you can share for years and years to come. Oahu Hawaii helicopter tours provide guests with the kind of view authors write volumes about and film directors immortalize on the silver screen. To get your own view of one of the most beautiful places on earth, you can choose from a variety of Oahu Hawaii helicopter tours. Here are some of the cooler benefits.
Get a Whole New View of Oahu
If you haven’t been above the skyline in Oahu, yet, you are missing out. Like all areas of pristine beauty, there are certain views that cannot be fully absorbed until they are seen in three dimensions. No matter how many National Geographic articles you have read and pictures you have gawked at, and regardless of the number of YouTube videos you’ve seen about Oahu, only Oahu Hawaii helicopter tours are going to give you the view you need in order to say you’ve actually, truly “seen” this part of Hawaii.
There’s a lot to see, too. The various colors of the waters around Oahu change depending on the depth of the ocean at each point. The shallower the water, the lighter the hues. You may get to see some light blue and even turquoise waters right off the coast. Soon, however, the lighter colors transition into deep, dark blues as the Pacific ocean progresses out and over the horizon. There’s nothing like the waters off the Oahu coast to give you a new view as to the vastness of the Pacific Ocean. As you cruise over the islands, you are likely to see even the waves from a new perspective, as everything seems to slow down and the world transitions into your own personal music video. Further, you have the chance to see the contour of the islands and learn about how they sprouted up so many years ago from volcanic formations that bubbled from deep in the earth. The details you can see while on any of the available Oahu Hawaii helicopter tours is as surprising as it is stunning. Even from high up in the air, the beauty of the trees and the colors of the vegetation have an impact on the senses.
Check Out the Volcanoes
Perhaps the most dramatic views seen during Oahu Hawaii helicopter tours are those of volcanoes. There’s nothing like getting a birds eye view of one of the most powerful beasts of the geological environment. You may even get to smell some of the sulfur aroma as you observe the smoke billowing up from the stacks of these enormous mountains. The volcanoes are responsible for much of the beauty of the islands of Oahu. Oahu Hawaii helicopter tours are a great way to safely pay your respects to these immense artists of the Hawaiian landscape. A helicopter rid in Oahu gives you the added pleasure of going straight from a sea view to a volcano view within the span of minutes. The stark contrast between the gently blues of the sea and the penetrating peak of a volcano leaves many speechless.
Helicopter Rides Are Safe
There’s a reason you hardly ever hear about accidents in connection with helicopter tours. Oahu helicopter tours are one of the safest easy to travel in the world. The rate of incidents is incredibly low, and this should give you a reasonable degree of certainty regarding your safety while on the tour. You will also learn about the various safety precautions you can take to make the experience even safer than you perhaps initially imagined. It’s one of those tours where the level of thrills far outweighs the risk of danger, which is always a nice touch, particularly when you are seeing one of the most beautiful places in the world for “the first time.”
