I just took an epic 60-minute flight with Eric! He's a fantastic pilot, and the views of Oahu from the glider are amazing. When my family first arrived on the island, it was pouring rain, so I wasn't able to fly on my originally scheduled...More

The view of the island was amazing!! The water was so clear we could see whales. Very smooth takeoff and landing. Very fun and Eric was so nice and confident in what he was doing. Would definitely recommend this for teens and adults!

Want to do something adventurous? This is for you and your kids. Fly above the island in a "winged" motorcycle- motorized hang glider with a pilot. My kids 17 and 15 loved it. Parents also!
