Lahaina Just one day in September 2103

Our ship, ex Sydney, has only one day in Lahaina in September 2013.

One excursion option has both:

(1) Road to Hana by limo-van

and

(2) Helicopter flight over Haleakala National Park - 45mins.

All advice appreciated

It sounds like a great combination ... one way to Hana by road and helicopter back to Kahului, over Haleakala.

You might want to also ask on Cruise Critic to see if you can get feedback from those who have done this shore excursion - here's a link to the Hawaii message board: boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=62

If it's in your budget - go for it.

The road to hana is to go see an undeveloped area and a rain forrest climate. If your ship is stopping on Kauai then you you will see a lot of lush growth.

So my vote is the helicopter tour. and it probably goes over Hana and Haleakala.

If your ship is coming into Lahaina Roadstead it is a 50 minute drive to the helicopter so I might just relax and walk

around the historic town.

A 45 minute helicopter tour in kauai would pretty much get around the whole island.

Aloha,

This is the Sky Trek tour, if I am reading the OP correctly. If so, it is a wonderful (but yes, pricey) way to see part of Maui by land and by air.
