We took an hour flight around the island and it was fabulous! Everyone should use this service. You can't believe the views and the great guides.

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

Booked 1/2 hour tour but got 1 hour tour for same price. They picked us up at the hotel which is a great service. The flight takes you all around the island and pick over Pearl Harbor, seeing the Arizona for the air gave us goose bumps. Highly recommend!

We took the fight our 2nd day in Hawaii. Turned out to be a good idea. Driving around the island later that week, we had a better understanding of the geography. Plus the beauty of Oahu is breath taking from the air.

Super fun excursion. Beautiful views all around. We had been all over the island, so was fun seeing all the places that we'd been from the air. Half hour excursion was perfect length. Everyone at the company was very friendly and attentive. Recommend. A+

This was a dream come true. The owners were very friendly and knowledgeable. Our 15 year old son who hopes to be a pilot one day was allowed to sit in the seat opposite the pilot. Captain Mark was so nice to him. The sights were amazing. Taking off and landing on the water was an incredible experience. We would... More
