We flew the tour our first full day on the island. We had earphones and were able to get the narration done by the pilot as... More

This flight included a prompt courtesy pick up at the hotel. As others, we took the Island Sea Plane flight on our last few days in Oahu. The weather was spectacular (as usual) and our one hour flight covered Honolulu, Wakaiki, Diamond Head, Koka head, Waimanalo Beach, up the east coast, and the Polynesian Cultural Center. The flight then follow... More

This was a perfect way to end our stay in Oahu. We spent a week touring and visiting as much of Oahu as possible. We saved this as our final tour. We did the one hour tour of the island and it gave us the opportunity to see most of the sites we visited from a different vantage point. I... More

This is something I would suggest anyone visiting Honolulu should do. Prompt friendly pick up from hotel. Amazing experience, knowledgable pilot who pointed out things of interest. Best of all was the view! Wow!! Waikiki, Diamond head crater, the coast and mountains then Pearl Harbour. Wow We did Pearl Harbor from the ground but this gave us a different perspective.

Wanted to see Oahu from the sky. This was definitely a unique experience. It has to be a good sunny day with no breeze/wind or else you will be at risk developing motion sickness. The staff and the driver who picked us up to take us here were very nice. Got to look at the ariel views of Hawaii included... More

We just attended the most beautiful, memorable, and moving wedding ever! It was officiated by Minister Robert and his lovely wife, sang a Hawaiian song, and played the ukelele. Wow! What an experience. We could not have envisioned a more lovely event. The floating white chapel was decorated in white and pink flowers and there was sufficient space on the... More
