Expedition Big Island Air Tour- Kapalua Departures

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet at the Kapalua Airport in the morning and check-in for the tour with the agent at the airport ticket counter. Once everyone is checked in, a gate agent will introduce you to your pilots who will be taking you to see the sights and wonders of Hawaii. There will be two pilots on every flight and they will review a safety briefing and help you get your GoPro mounted should you choose to rent one for your flight seeing adventure.  

    The airplane you will be taking your tour in is a Cessna Grand Caravan EX model and has been equipped with leather seats, extended leg room, and comfortable air-conditioning. For your pleasure, the aircraft are equipped with great audio headphones for you to embrace the music of local recording artist, Anuhea, and the narration of the tour by your pilots as you capture the audio-visual experience. Each seat has larger window so every guest will be able to see the sights of Hawaii. Get ready to experience the breathtakingly awesome sights of Hawaii from the air!

    As you depart Kapalua you will see new perspectives of the colors of the land and sea. The views are epic and the emotions, smiles and grins are contagious. As you laugh and enjoy your tour you will soar over the sights of Maui and head to the Big Island of Hawaii toward your main destination of the Volcanoes National Park and its most famous feature, Kilauea Volcano, recently has been ranked among the most active volcanoes in the world. She might delight you with sparks and lava flowing into the ocean setting off steam vents. Depending on the weather and seismic activity what you see might vary by day.

    Along the way the sights will all be narrated by your pilots so you will know exactly what you are seeing, as the 'Big Island' boasts all of the micro-climates of the world. Gain new perspectives into sights you may have never seen before such as Waimea Valley's dramatic cliffs as you head toward Hilo, and the waterfalls of the Kohala Coast. It will inspire you to visit this beautiful island chain over and over again.

    Conclude the tour back in Kapalua where you can pose for pictures with your pilots and the aircraft.
