The ride was well worth the price and time. Beautiful scenery and comfortable flight. This was our first time to Hawaii out of 27 years and so we tried to do it all. I would do this ride again when we go back.

We did the North Shore Adventure for 20 mins and it was perfect! We got to see and experience the island in such a unique way. The pilot was knowledgeable and even flew us above a few (small) waterfalls. Definitely a highlight of our trip!

We took the Magnum Experience tour and loved every minute! The staff is super cautious and we never felt things were handled unsafely. We would highly recommend this company and tour!
