Overview

Experience 180-degree, panoramic, aerial views of Maui during this 45-minute helicopter tour. Ascend into the skies and float over valleys, the eastern coast, waterfalls unreachable on foot, and observe the dense Hana forest like a bird in the sky. Enjoy the island’s lush beauty by air and ascend 10,000-feet to the summit of the Haleakala Crater while learning about Maui’s rich history from your pilot.

What to Expect
Begin your tour at the Kahului Heliport where you’ll board an air-conditioned, A-star helicopter with six forward-facing leather seats each with 180-degree views. Your pilot will start the engines, ascend into the air and have you buzzing over natural wonders in minutes. As you discover the island by air, headed for the East Maui Rainforest, your pilot will point out sights, teaching you about the land and Maui’s rich history. Take in the island's undeveloped landscape and soar over the Hana coastline to see waterfalls joining the sea. Next, ascend the Haleakala Crater along its eastern ridge until you reach the 10,000-foot summit. Hover here and admire one of the world’s tallest dormant volcanoes before returning to the heliport. Purchase a souvenir USB with narrated footage of the flight for a separate charge.

First time!

Hard to review something accurately when it’s your first helicopter flight. But without any other to compare it to, we gave it 5 Stars. Felt safe the entire time. I was worried about motion sickness and was relieved that I felt fine the entire tour....More
