East Maui 45-minute Helicopter Tour over Haleakala Crater

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
You'll enjoy all of the "must see" sights in Maui on spectacular Maui helicopter tours! Soar to the 10,000 foot (3,050 meter) Haleakala Volcano Crater, fly over the rainforests of Hana and much more. Expert narration is included on Maui helicopter rides.
  • See East Maui from above on this 45-minute helicopter tour
  • 180-degree views of the coastline, waterfalls, and Hana rainforest 
  • Ascend 10,000 feet (3,050 meters) along dormant Haleakala Crater
  • Pilot narration on Maui’s history and flight route sights
What to Expect
Begin your tour at the Kahului Heliport where you board an air-conditioned, A-star helicopter with six forward-facing leather seats, each with 180-degree views.
Once in the air, you head for the East Maui rainforest, where your pilot points out sights and offers information about 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 (3,050-meter) summit. Hover and admire one of the world’s tallest dormant volcanoes before returning to the heliport, where the tour ends. Purchase a souvenir USB with narrated footage of the flight for a separate charge.

What a great experience. Pilot Jim took us on a great trip, with incredible views and narration. We took our oldest grandchild (11 yo) with us. He was thrilled. We were well tended to by all the staff. Hope to go again some day.
