Santa arrives in Hawaii ... on a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter!

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - When the reindeer need a day off, several members of the U.S. Coast Guard stationed at Air Station Barber's Point have apparently got Santa covered.

Video posted to the base's Facebook page shows a Coast Guard helicopter with Santa onboard flying over waters off Oahu, waving to surfers and beachgoers, before Mr. Kringle rappels down to the ground.

A group of keiki had gathered near a hangar at Air Station Barber's Point ahead of Santa's arrival.
