What You Can Expect

Oahu Day Trip from Kapalua Maui: WW II Start to End

Enjoy a fully narrated deck tour of the USS Missouri

Your private flight from Maui to Oahu begins at Kapalua Airport, a small landing strip in West Maui just minutes from many resorts. As the plane lifts off from Maui’s shoreline, you might spot paddleboards catching a wave in the turquoise waters below, and it’s common to see whales from the seat of your plane from December through the middle of April. Cruise above Molokai’s jagged mountains and see the island of Lanai from the air, and, before your pilot prepares for a landing at Honolulu Airport, gaze out the window at Diamond Head Crater and famous Waikiki Beach.
After your scenic flight to Oahu, you’ll be met at the airport by your local guide who will drive you to Pearl Harbor’s Visitor Center, site of the infamous Japanese attack. With your informative guide right there by your side, hear the tales of the surprise attack that devastated a nation, and visit the Arizona Memorial where 1,777 sailors still lie in a watery grave. 
Next, step aboard the USS Missouri that served during World War II, and if you peer over the railings to look at the ship’s hull, you can still see dents where kamikaze airplanes made one last final attack. You’ll also see the spot where the Japanese officially surrendered the war, and on a visit to the nearby Oklahoma Memorial, remember the 429 sailors who were lost in the fateful attack. 
After some light snacks (such as granola bars or food you purchase on site), you’ll leave Pearl Harbor in an air-conditioned coach and set out for Honolulu, where the coach will stop at historical sites like Iolani Palace. You’ll also see the statue of King Kamehameha and historic Kawaihao Church, before continuing on to Punchbowl Cemetery, or the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
Finally, after a full day of sobering and fascinating history, you’ll board your flight from Oahu to Maui for the 30-minute trip home.

Great trip
An 8 seater plane took us from Maui to Honolulu. Don't take any luggage just bottled water. Great views of the Hawaiian islands from above.
We were met by the coach which was air-conditioned and comfortable. There were only 4 of us on the tour but it felt very personal, which we all liked.
We had a tour of the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Punchbowl Crater, Honolulu and the surrounding gardens. We stopped at the King Kamehameha Statue in front of Aliiolani Hale in Downtown Honolulu and then drove to Pearl Harbour while listening to facts about Honolulu and the areas we drove through.
There was plenty of time to see all the exhibitions at Pearl Harbour including a boat trip to the USS Arizona memorial which was fascinating and emotional. There was time for a hot dog lunch and a spend up in the gift shop before getting on a coach to the Battleship USS Missouri.
We had a very informative tour of the ship and then time to explore alone.
We then had some time in the Pacific Aviation Museum before heading back to the airport.
Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny and we did not feel rushed
I would recommend this tour to anyone
Thanks for a great trip


4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

Our guide, Will, was fantastic!! Very knowledgeable about Pearl Harbor and Honolulu. The Arizona Memorial was more touching than we expected. The plane rides to and from Maui Kapalua airport let us see areas otherwise unable to view. It was a great day!


3 star rating: Worth doing March 2016

It was a great tour. Pearl harbor is amazing and our guide and bus driver Keith was excellent with good information and humor.
But I must say I was mildy upset that the overview trip information was misleading. Flight and food aren't as advertised. Mokulele isn't a private chartered plane and just does a direct flight from Kapalua to Honolulu. We did get a good view of the Molokai sea cliffs and okay view of Oahu but doesn't offer much of a view of Maui, Lanai and even really Oahu. Also, lunch was just a voucher for a hot dog which was good but having to purchase my own drink does not count as lunch included and no snacks were provided either. Both of which are fine but the information and overview need to be adjusted to say the real experience which is what we got. Not sure who our fellew tourers booked through but one couple was told breakfast was incleded and the 2 other couples on the tour where more mislead. Because there flight got switched to have to fly out of Kahului and after having that extra drive they didn't even get windows on the plane and said they couldn't see anything. And there flight back to Maui was at 4 while ours was at 4:40 so we had to cut our tour short. I went for this tour becuase of the aerial view aspect and that it wasn't quite as long as others. But a straight flight not offering the views and others getting booked on the wrong flight and wrong seats cutting an hour off the tour made it a bit more rushed than it was supposed to be.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this February 2016

Setting up date was confusing because our original date was first ok'd then said was filled. We set a second date but kept getting info like we were going on first. On our final agreed upon date our flight was 1/2 hour late and when we finally arrived our tour had left. We felt very rushed, and even the original allotted time at Pearl Harbor would not have been enough. I must say our guide was very good though. Next time I wou.ld do it on my own.
