Kalaupapa and Molokai Day Trip from Oahu
Reviewed by: Adrienne H, September 2015
The flight to and from Mololai was a great experience, providing the three of us with some great views of Honolulu and of Molokai. A bonus benefit was meeting at the Kalaupapa airfield an old friend of mine whom I had not seen for forty years, plus a couple of other folks from our home state of Michigan . We were joined on the bus tour by the hikers and the mule riders who made the trip up and down the trail instead of flying in and who joined us for the bus tour. The gentleman tour guide and driver of the 1992 school bus was very informative, insightful, and inspiring. All in all, I consider this day trip the highlight of my entire ten days in Hawaii.

Very well done. Could tighten up on time spent at airports waiting for other groups to join our tour.

A great way to spend a day not far from Oahu. The historical aspects of the old leper colony and Father Damien was outstanding. The only complaint is the waiting time for the scheduled aircraft to take us back to Honolulu. There could be "filler" activity to allow tourists to enjoy Kalaupapa's beauty. As an example a donkey ride up the trail to a vantage point that overlooks the National Park.

A very interesting and enjoyable trip, start to finish. You will learn a lot about the history of Molokai on this venture! Scenery is beautiful as well.

It was everything I could have hoped for - and more. The flight over was smooth, the pilot gracious, and the tour operator at Kalapaupapa very knowledgeable and engaging. I would certainly recommend this trip to others.

Unique experience that put a visual picture to what I have read about the history. Wonderful guide and nice plane ride with locals added to my understanding of life there and the park service.
