From Honolulu, fly over to the neighbor island of Molokai for a day.

 This is a great combo tour that includes a ground tour of the historic Kalaupapa settlement, located on an isolated peninsula.

Soar high above Molokai’s towering sea cliffs, the tallest in the world, and enjoy views of waterfalls and secluded valleys before descending into the Kalaupapa settlement. After landing, you’ll walk in the footprints of the Blessed Father Damien and the people he helped.

This tour is a celebration of Father Damien’s life and his commitment to those suffering from leprosy during the late 1800s and the recognition the Catholic Church has bestowed upon him with his canonization to Saint-hood on October 11, 2009. This tour is an enlightening and emotional experience. A day in Kalaupapa is an experience of a lifetime.

On your return flight to Oahu, you will fly along the south shore of Molokai, home to the most extensive coral reefs in Hawaii. As you approach Honolulu, you’ll be able to see Diamond Head Crater and Waikiki Beach.

Tour Highlights

  • Aerial views of Molokai’s sea cliffs along the north shore, and coral reefs and ancient fishponds on the south shore
  • 4 hours guided land tour of the Kalaupapa settlement
  • Learn about Father Damien and his cause
