Itinerary
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.

Highly recommend this trip with this company.

Our pilot was so amazing. He grew up on the island so he was more knowledgeable than most so that was great

Fun experience

It was great to see Maui from 10,000 feet. The craters on Haleakala were amazing! This is a fun experience if you have the chance to do it. Jessie did a great job explaining the the lay of the land, interesting landmarks and sites.

Wonderful experience!

The ride was amazing! My wife and I could see the island from a different perspective. Waterfalls, rain forest and desert at once. The staff was outstanding! The pilot knew a lot about the island! We'll be back again!
