One of the most sought-after air tour experiences in Hawaii is offered by Makani Kai Helicopters. This is of course the flight that flies over the scenic northern Molokai coastal cliff region and then sets down at Father Damien's Leper Colony on the beautiful Kalaupapa Peninsula for a sightseeing tour. The story of Father Damien and his epic tale of sacrifice and self-service has been immortalized in books, novels, Hollywood movies and documentaries for more than a century and you can actually set foot on this ritualized and incredibly beautiful parcel of history on one of Makani Kai Helicopter's special flights. Tours will depart from Honolulu or from top-side Molokai daily and the Honolulu tours will take approximately seven hours or so in total including being picked up and delivered back to your Waikiki hotel. These tours are offered on a Cessna Grand Caravan which carries nine passengers, all of whom have a window seat. Once on the peninsula itself you will be treated to a 'rustic and most endearing' land tour on a renovated school bus. You'll want to bring your camera to document this entire experience!
This spectacular tour shows you the very best of the island. Depending on weather conditions the pilot will select the most suitable route to show you all the must see attractions and scenic vistas, from serene Keehi Lagoon and historic Honolulu Harbor to Aloha Tower, Ala Moana Beach Park, Magic Island and world famous Waikiki Beach.
