This tour stops for nothing to show you the best the island has to offer. Weather permitting the pilot will choose the most suitable route to show you the ‘must see’ sights of the island. Including Honolulu, Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head crater and Hanauma Bay which is a remnant of a long extinct volcanic carter. Today Hanuama Bay functions as a marine sanctuary and snorkel spot.
You’ll see the Halona Blowhole, Sandy Beach and Makapuu Point. Sea Life Park and the miles of white sandy beaches near Waimanalo Beach. The tour continues over Kaneohe Bay and towards Chinaman’s Hat. Scared falls waterfall and its 1,000 feet of cascading water are the highlights on this side of the Island. For those of you who are “Jurassic Park” fans you might recognize the next valley over where the film was shot.
On your way home over the center of the island you will see the Dole pineapple plantation and will conclude with a serene panoramic view of Pearl Harbor.
