Activity Level 

Easy: Suitable for adults, children and seniors.
Sit back and enjoy an aerial tour highlighting the most beautiful sights of Oʻahu. Explore the island in its entirety and visit hidden gems without the challenges of access by foot.


See incredible aerial views starting with a taste of history over Pearl Harbor, the WWII Arizona Memorial, and Battleship Missouri. Next, soar above the bustling Honolulu Harbor, beautiful Waikīkī, and iconic Leahi (Diamond Head Crater). Heading further east, you’ll fly over Koko Head Crater and Hanauma Bay before Sandy Beach and Makapu‘u Lighthouse. Heading north, you will trace the fantastic coral formations of Kāne‘ohe Bay, Mokoli‘i (Chinaman’s Hat), and take a peek into “Jurassic Park” or, as it has been known locally for hundreds of years, Ka‘a‘awa Valley.

The thousand-foot cascade of Kaliuwa‘a (Sacred Falls) is sure to stun you and is accessible only by air. Then you’ll see the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Resort, and world-famous surfing spots of the North Shore - Sunset, Pipeline, Waimea Bay, and more. As you round Ka‘ena Point, you get a glimpse of the serene Wai‘anae Coast, a hidden gem of the island. Uncrowded and glorious white sand beaches - Yokohama Bay, Mākaha, and Pōka‘i - lace the coast. Historic Mākaha Valley comes into view as you are a few minutes away from arriving back to Kalaeloa.
