Take flight above Oahu's tropical splendor. The Pali Makani tour begins with a beautiful view of the serene Keehi Lagoon and then takes you over historic Honolulu Harbor. From rugged coastlines to inviting sandy beaches and stunning cityscapes, this 30-minute tour has something to delight everyone—including views of the only royal palace in the country and the site where TV's Magnum P.I. was filmed!

The Sacred Falls tour follows the same route as the Pali Makani tour, but continues on across breathtaking Kaneohe Bay for a great view of fish ponds constructed by ancient Hawaiians. Fly over Kaaawa Valley, know locally as "Jurassic Park" valley due to the numerous motion pictures that have been filmed there. Fly further inland to the stunning Sacred Falls—a 1,000-foot cascading waterfall—-as well as the interior rain forests unseen by most visitors. This 60-minute tour finishes with panoramic views of the world-renowned North Shore surfing spots, the world's largest agricultural maze, and Pearl Harbor.
