Amazing Views & Friendly Service

Been to Waikiki 5 times and this is the only excursion we had never done before. It was absolutely amazing & the views were incredible. Staff and pilot service was outstanding. My only regret is we should have done the 45 minute or 1-hour ride instead, 20 minutes just seemed so short. I would definitely do it again next time we are in Honolulu.
