Overview
Experience 180-degree aerial views of Maui on this scenic helicopter tour. Float over valleys, Maui’s east coast, and waterfalls unreachable by foot, and observe the dense Hana forest like a bird. Enjoy the island’s lush beauty by air and ascend 10,000 feet (3,050 meters) to the summit of the Haleakala Crater while learning about Maui’s rich history from your pilot.
Highlights
  • See East Maui from above on a helicopter tour
  • 180-degree views of the coastline, waterfalls, and Hana rain forest 
  • 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 rain forest, 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.
