    Due to CDC guidelines, all interisland and trans-pacific travelers must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result when checking in for helicopter tour. 

    For this experience, our experience provider has been taking extra measures to help prevent any potential spread of COVID-19. These measures include following the CDC guidelines by requiring all guests and pilots to wear a mask and remain 6 feet apart throughout the entire experience. Our partners have increased the frequency of disinfecting surfaces and high traffic areas and hand sanitizer will be provided to all guests. Additionally, the aircraft including seats, seatbelts, head sets and interior will be sanitized after each flight. 

    Upon check in, all guests will be required to sign a COVID-19 declaration form indicating that you have no symptoms and be subject to a no touch temperature check. Any guests or employees with a temperature over 100.4 degrees will be asked to reschedule their experience.

    Why is scuba diving not allowed 24 hours before and after this flight?
    Flying too soon after an underwater descent, puts divers at risk for decompression sickness. DCS can happen when one experiences a significant atmospheric pressure change within a short period of time; in this case rapidly going from a scuba dive to a high altitude. Therefore, scuba diving is not allowed 24 hours before or after a flight.
    Is there an age limit?
    Children under 23 months are considered a lap child, but older ones would need to purchase a seat at the regular price.
    Is there a weight limit?

    Helicopter weight and balance changes with every flight because of passenger weight, pilot weight and length of flight (fuel weight). It is important that the experience provider has the accurate body weight from every passenger. FAA regulations require all passengers and their carry-on items to be weighed at time of check-in. If a standard airline seat belt is too small or you weigh over 240 pounds you may be required to purchase a comfort seat on the FX STAR helicopter.
