More detailed description >


Climb aboard for an unforgettable helicopter tour over paradise on earth - Maui!

Climb high above Haleakala, the world's largest dormant volcano. You'll feel like you're flying over the moon as you soar above it's massive crater and lava flows that once flowed to the sea. 

From here, head towards the coast for an aerial view of Hana and all its hidden treasures. Hana's "back side" is home to the famed Seven Pools - an amazing network of cascading waterfalls and pools that empty into the deep-blue Hawaiian ocean along the rugged Kipahulu coastline. 

View the Hana Rain Forest from above- the largest tropical rain forest in the U.S., boasting over 180 square miles of lush Hawaiian paradise. 

Soar over Ho'okipa beach, a world-renowned windsurfing spot. As you tour the coastline, keep your eyes peeled for whales (if it's the season), surfers and other wildlife.

"Staff at helicopter company was really nice and professional. Somewhat difficult to get good views from the center of the helicopter. Pilot sometimes moved too quickly to get a good shot. Nice experience, but probably wouldn't do it again."

"I had the usual apprehensions about flying in a small helicopter. So I avoided it for decades. However, after finally doing it, I was so delighted with the experience that I cannot recommend it enough. The pilot was excellent (although he looked so young, I felt reassured just minutes after take-off). The landing was like landing on balloons... so soft and without any anxiety. I wish I had done this years earlier. We live on Maui, and it brought a new appreciation of the beauty of this lovely island we call home."
