What You Can Expect

Honolulu 30-Minute Seaplane Flight

Honolulu 30-Minute Aloha Seaplane Flight

On this 30-minute Honolulu seaplane flight, you’ll be picked up from your Waikiki Hotel and driven out to your seaplane—a DeHavilland Beaver that seats 6 passengers and offers unforgettable views. The staff will provide a welcoming briefing and an introduction to the plane, before you ceremoniously take off from the waters of Honolulu Harbor.

From the moment the plane lifts off from the water the city is right at your feet, from Aloha Tower’s iconic spire to military ships at Pearl Harbor. Heading east along the southern coast, press your face up against the window as you admire the aerial views—where the Honolulu skyline is dramatically backed by the rugged Ko’olau Mountains. Soar the length of Waikiki Beach and buzz over Diamond Head Crater, before circling the summit of Koko Head Crater flying above Hanauma Bay.

For the return journey to Ke’ehi Lagoon, fly through the famous Pali Pass that cuts through the Ko’olau Mountains, and see knife-thin ridgelines and narrow waterfalls that carve their way down the mountain. You’ll have the chance to see the Arizona Memorial and get history lessons from your pilot, who will slowly begin to adjust the throttle and prepare for a thrilling splash landing.  

Best of all, this Oahu air tour has a sterling reputation for entertainment and safety, and complimentary drop off at your hotel is included—though you can also be dropped off at Ala Moana Shopping Center or Aloha Tower Marketplace.

Wonderful experience from being picked up at the hotel and given an informative friendly talk as we went along, to the flight itself which was amazing,and back again to the hotel. The enthusiasm of the pilot was great and he explained everything and pointed out all the sights,even turning the plane so both sides could see.i would highly recommend this tour.

Spectacular vintage plane, spectacular view of diamond head, the beaches, the Jurassic Park type mountains that we flew between and Pearl Harbour. You could see everything so clearly and the photos turned out great through very clean windows. very smooth take off and landing. Very professional, courteous service from the time we were picked up at the hotel. till the time we were dropped off. Our only regret was that we didn't book the hour flight instead of the half hour.
