Kamaka Air has extensive experience shipping plants in Hawaii. We ship all types of plants from leis to sod. Since most cargo dropped off by 9:00 AM is delivered the same day, by choosing Kamaka you can ensure that your plants will arrive fresh and healthy! If your leis or other flowers need refrigeration, we have coolers that can accommodate everything from a corsage to a pallet.

Don’t forget your inspection tag or sticker.

Hawaii plant inspection sticker
Shipping Plants in Hawaii - Kamaka Air Cargo

Live plants, seeds, and soil shipped interisland must have a plant inspection tag or sticker from a Plant Quarantine Office. Please note that leis and other cut flowers do not need an inspection tag. Many plants purchased from nurseries or stores such as Lowes and Home Depot already have an inspection sticker, but if yours doesn’t you can get one for free by visiting one of the Plant Quarantine Offices. Simply stop in during business hours (see below), no appointment is necessary. All you need to bring is the plant(s) you want to ship and they will perform a quick visual inspection before issuing the tag at no cost to you. For more information please visit their website or see their informational flyer. There are two office locations on Oahu (other island locations here).
