Hana Rainforest Helicopter Flight with Landing from Maui

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    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.

    Even with my fear of heights, this is how we chose to see that side of the coast instead of driving the road to hana and I am so glad we did! Eddie was our pilot and was extremely knowledgeable and our views were beautiful!

    Our pilot, Alex, did a great job flying and answering questions and telling us all about the areas we were flying over. The ride was smooth and we felt very safe the whole time. This was a really fun experience we would definitely do again.

    Hi, you get some really great views of the different falls along the way but nothing really spectacular at the landing site. The landing is more about the flora and fauna and having a glass of Prosecco. If you want up close... More

    There is a distant view of some great waterfalls from the landing site. Overall, you can see many more falls during the helicopter ride than any other way. The landing is really more about seeing bounty the land can provide... More
