“Sea Plane Flight”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

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.

Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

From getting picked up at our hotel to getting dropped off was fantastic. Debbie whom picked us up was very warm and welcoming. We arrived at the office where our pilot valerie and aircraft was waiting. We had a beautiful view of waikiki and oahu. Valerie the pilot was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Very smooth landing. All in all a must do trip. Thank you for a fabulous experience from ashley and paul

“Loved it!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

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+

“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

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 highly recommend this excursion (even over a helicopter ride).

“Great way to tour the island”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

From the moment we were picked up at our hotel we knew we were in for a special treat. We enjoyed a history of the Island Seaplane Service on our drive to the marina. We met our pilot and we off. It was so much fun taking off on the water and seeing all the sights from the air We flew past Diamond Head, Hanauma Bay and then Makapu'u Point Lighthouse. We had hiked the Lighthouse trail earlier that week and it was nice to see it from the air. We continued up the coast seeing the beautiful beaches and then turned up the north coast. Just before we turned down the central valley we spotted three humpback whales, two adults and a baby! We circled back to get a better view; it was fantastic. We finished our tour by flying over the pineapple fields and then over Pearl Harbor. I highly recommend this tour.
