Owner description: A twist on typical flight-seeing tours, Island Seaplane Service takes off from the water in Keehi Lagoon near the Honolulu International Airport. Depending on the plan you pick, you’ll have a window seat to soak in views of Honolulu Harbor, Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, Koko Head Crater, Hanauma Bay, Sealife Park, the Pali Pass and the Arizona Memorial.

Greatest ride ever. Mere words cannot describe the exhillaration and beauty of taking off from a serene lagoon and seeing the island by air; Pearl Harbor the shoreline and the mountains and valleys. Thanks to Capt. Alex for a smooth flight. Worth every cent. Recommend this to everyone visiting Oahu.

“A Beautiful View”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

Come to Hawaii and there are numerous helicopter rides, but try this...
A seaplane ride. This is a neat tour.
I booked my tour before leaving home and Debbie was able to get me organised with minimum fuss. She also organised the van pick-up from my Waikiki lodging. Her hubby, Capt. Pat, who has years and years of trouble free flying met me and fellow passengs at their pretty office near the airport. No long lines here, just lots of Aloha before boarding the beautiful little seaplane and taxing out over the water. It was lovely and smooth and we travelled all along Waikiki catching the sights before returning over Pali Pass and back to the watery runway. Great. You'll love it.
My thanks to Debbie, Pat and Alex. They kept us in chat, took photos and took out all the 'hassle' by driving passengers out and back!!! Just the preparation for another gentle day in paradise - book, sun, pool and mai-tai.
Enjoy your flight.

“Great way to start your trip”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

The first day I was on O'ahu I took the circle island tour offered by Island Seaplane. It was fantastic and a wonderful way to get an overview of the island. I would highly recommend this tour. It certainly helped me as I toured the island to have an idea of where everything was.
