Pearl Harbor Brought to Life!

Reviewed by: Ozzie's Mom, 2014/10/03

My husband is retired USAF and we are history buffs. I surprised my family with this excursion on our first morning in Honolulu so that we could see the island of Oahu from the air before striking out on our own to tour it by car, and especially so that we could see, from the air, what the Zero pilots had seen as they approached Pearl Harbor.

WOW! We all LOVED it!

We were picked up at our hotel and driven to the waterfront by a very informative driver (sorry, don't remember his name!) who gave us tips on local restaurants, photo ops, tours, etc.

We arrived at the Island Seaplane Service site in about 15 minutes and received a pre-flight briefing and shown a map of the island as we discussed points of interest, history, and what to expect during the flight.

The flight was wonderful! The pilot was very informative and the view from the air was completely different than what we later saw on our land tours. There is no better way we could experienced the approach to Pearl Harbor -- that was magnificent and gave us an entirely new perspective on the attack and the aftermath.

After a perfect sea landing, we were driven back to the hotel.

Could not possibly have asked for more! Highly recommend.

Oahu From Above

Oahu looked so postcard perfect view from our seaplane. We had the 1 hour package and we flew over the south, east and west sides of the island. Do not forget your camera.

Pilot was very knowledgable about all the points of interest of the island.The plane needs to be replaced, it's pretty rundown.
