Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Book your selected flight time, travel independently to Maui’s Kahului Airport, and check in for your flight. Then, meet your pilot and any other passengers—your ECO-130 helicopter carries a maximum of seven—before boarding.

Sit back into your comfortable seat, and after a safety briefing, ascend into the skies above Maui for your flight. Then, gaze through the windows and drink in the aerial views as your pilot provides live commentary on the sights and shares intriguing facts about the island’s geology, nature, and history.

Fly along Maui’s northern coast, gazing down at rugged sea cliffs and waterfalls, swoop over beauty spots such as Paia, Hookipa, Haiku, and Pe’ahi, famous for its huge surfing break known as ‘Jaws’.

Soar over the winding coastal route of the ‘Road to Hana,’ and capture photos of Keopuka Rock, nicknamed ‘Jurassic Rock’ for featuring in the opening credits of the 1993 movie, Jurassic Park.

Then, whirr over the dense jungle and descend into the Hana rainforest, touching down near a former taro (yam-like root vegetable) farm in the untouched Wailua Valley.

Here, hop out and enjoy time to explore the paradise-like landscapes, awash with coconut trees, banana groves, and wildflowers, and commanding panoramic views over tumbling waterfalls and deep green canyons.

As you walk, listen as your pilot shares information about the area, learning how only a few people have walked here as its remains largely unexplored.

When it’s time, board your helicopter and enjoy the return flight back to the heliport. Your trip then finishes when you disembark and bid farewell to your pilot.

Please note: Per FAA regulations, all passengers 18 years and older will be required to show photo ID such as a driver's license or passport at the time of check-in.

Exhilarating Experience!!

From beginning to end our pilot, Felix, made sure we were safe, comfortable and entertained while in flight. Due to weather he flew a different itenerary which took us around the north shore of Maui and across the channel to Molokai. All along the way he pointed out interesting sights and maneuvered the helicopter to ensure maximum viewability for everyone. Terrific experience that I'd love to do again next time we're in Maui.

One of my top 10 greatest travel experiences. Will do it again!

Everything thing about this trip was memorable but if I had to say a few things I would say that the commentary and educational information about the geographical area, trees, plants, streams really enhances the beauty we were seeing. I loved the small hike in the rainforest, tasting guavas and experiencing nature up close. I also liked how safe I felt and how our pilot Jake explained how to use the equipment in a kind, friendly, and unhurried way. As a final plus, the music soundtrack over the headphones was times beautifully for where we were positioned and really enhanced the experience.

Oh my! What a wonderful experience. I was nervous before flight. But, Jake was absolutely the best pilot. The takeoff and landing was smooth as silk and the flight was perfect. He shared information about the area - both about what we were flying over and about all of the plants at the rainforest landing. It was so worth it.

It was raining the day of our flight so we couldn't do the chosen tour, instead the pilot took us to the west side of the island of Maui, and to see the island of Molokai. It was amazing!

A great experience overall! Our pilot was knowledgeable and we got to try fresh fruits on the land we landed in! Same as the other tour I did with viator, be prepared to be with some other folks that aren't great at wearing their masks (even now during delta times).
