Description:

Prepare for sensory overload as you circle the island paradise of Maui high in the sky!

After take-off from Kahului heliport on the north side of Maui, you'll head to the one of the wettest places on earth - West Maui. Home to long streaming waterfalls and vibrant green valleys, West Maui views are what you've been dreaming of when you think "Hawaiian Paradise". Take in views including the "Wall of Tears" - over 17 waterfalls flowing at once, and Honokohau Falls - Maui's tallest waterfall with an 1,100-foot drop.

Next, fly over the resorts of Kaanapali and Kapalua, and enjoy an aerial view of Old Lahaina Town and its quaint whaling harbor.

Next you'll head to over 10,000 feet above sea level as you fly above Haleakala, the world's largest dormant volcano. Discover Haleakala's massive moonlike crater with iron oxide cinder cones towering over 1,100 feet tall.

From here you'll head towards Hana to catch a glimpse of this remote area's 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.

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

From here you'll fly over Ho'okipa beach, a world-renowned windsurfing spot. As you tour the coastline, keep your eyes peeled for whales (during whale season), surfers and other wildlife.

From waterfalls and waves to valleys and volcanoes - Maui has it all. This is your chance to see it all!
