A twist on typical flight-seeing tours, Island Seaplane Service takes off from the water in Keehi Lagoon near the Honolulu International Airport. Depending on the plan you pick, you’ll have a window seat to soak in views of Honolulu Harbor, Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, Koko Head Crater, Hanauma Bay, Sealife Park, the Pali Pass and the Arizona Memorial.
