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.
What if my flight is cancelled due to weather?
We always recommend contacting your pilot on the day of your experience if you have any concerns regarding weather. In the event your flight is cancelled due to weather you can reschedule directly with your pilot.

Highly recommend! Ride lasts about 50 minutes, safety is a key priority, and everyone at Magnum Helicopters was very friendly and professional. You’ve got to see Oahu from the air like this.

Hello Elizabeth, We will consider this a 10/10 would recommend to a friend type of experience! Our partners always aim to provide the best flight possible with your safety as their number one concern. I am pleased to know our partner was friendly yet professional and got to provide a nice long scenic flight. There is truly no better way to see the island than from the sky! Thanks for such a great review! Best, Brooke
This experience completely exceeded my expectations. The ground staff and pilot were incredibly professional and ran such a smooth operation. The flight itself was spectacular and a once in a lifetime way to view the Island, couldn’t recommend this adventure more.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi there, Courtney, Beautiful, exciting, and breathtaking are just a view words that I think would best describe this incredible aerial adventure. Being able to experience the unparalleled views of Oahu from a doors-off helicopter truly sounds fun and adrenalizing! I am beyond thrilled to hear that the crew was professional and that the pilot was able to share with you the immense beauty of the island. We are so happy that we could be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime experience and we hope the magic of this flight inspires you to book another exciting adventure with us soon! Cheers to you! Elizabeth 
This tour was worth every penny. Waikiki pickup was prompt, service was great, and the company was very safe. Nathan, our pilot, was a wonderful tour guide full of knowledge and humor, and made the 50-minute tour amazing. We would 100% do this tour again with Magnum Helicopters.
Evan was a great pilot and made sure we were comfortable. He told jokes and shared history of Oahu with us.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Good Afternoon Rachel!  I hope you had a great weekend and an amazing time in Hawaii! I appreciate you taking the time to write in and tell us about your doors off experience! This is absolutely at the top of my bucket list the pictures look incredible but I am sure they do not do it justice. Had you ever been in a helicopter before? What was the most interesting fact Evan shared with you? I do hope we see you again for another fun day out and thank you for letting us be apart of the memory.  All the best,  Chelsea
