Hana-Haleakala Helicopter 45Min
MAUI Activities - You will start this awesome helicopter flight by enjoying spectacular views of the Haleakala Crater, Maui's sleeping volcano. You will then travel through the luscious green rain forest of Hana. At over 180 square miles, the Hana rain forest is the largest in our nation and filled with beautiful waterfalls! The flight then travels along the rugged shoreline of Northeast Maui, including Ho'okipa and Old Paia Town before returning to the Kahului heliport.

The Air Maui Experience begins long before you board a helicopter. When you first step into their terminal at Kahului Heliport, you know you're among friends. You will be welcomed by a professional staff who greets every passenger and personally assists with check-in. As you flight is prepared, relax in a comfortable terminal or browse through the retail shop, which features genuine Air Maui clothing and souvenirs.
Experience Makes the Difference. Air Maui pilots are experienced professionals with thousands of hours of flight time, and are trained to the demanding standards of Steve Egger, Air Maui's owner and Chief Pilot.
Being the best is just the first step; Air Maui pilots must also excel at being your personal guide, entertaining and informing you about Maui's history, geology, flora and fauna as you soar above fantastic landscapes.
Quality and Safety Make a big difference! In aviation, quality and safety are paramount. At Air Maui, the proof is in their record: over ten years of perfect safety. That's not luck - it is the combined commitment of professional pilots and top-notch aircraft maintenance personnel.
At the end of each day an entirely new crew takes charge of the aircraft. Air Maui's FAA-certified and factory-trained mechanics inspect and maintain their helicopters to ensure that every component, every system, meets the highest standards of safety and quality. Air Maui's standards are simple: “If it's not perfect, it doesn't fly.”
Front seat upgrade is available for an additional $50 per seat for a maximum of 2 seats per flight. To qualify, the combined weight between the two passengers cannot exceed 380 lbs.

What can we say, other than it was truly a "FANTASTIC" experience! Great scenery, Great narration by pilot and wonderful staff in office.
We booked a helicopter tour of the Hana coast and Haleakala through Ohana Fun Hawaii tour company with Air Maui. it was a very good deal cost wise and it ended up being great value. Very well run, very organized and very nice people. You won't regret using Air Maui, i can't compare them to others as I've never used any other helicopter tour companies in Maui, but this outfit is first class.
