What To Expect
From the moment you lift off from Kahului Heliport you’re surrounded by gorgeous views—from fields of green sugar beneath your feet to the turquoise northern shoreline. In the luxurious, 6-seat, A-star helicopter, cruise your way towards the knife-thin ridgelines of the rugged West Maui Mountains, while your expert pilot provides historical narration through the comfortable two-way headset.
As you buzz through the middle of the eroded volcano, soar past the famous “Wall of Tears” and its dozens of cascading falls, and see 1,100-foot (335-meter) Honokohau Falls—the tallest waterfall on Maui. When you exit the middle of the West Maui Mountains, you’ll fly above the white sand beaches of the island’s Kapalua coast, before crossing the whitecapped Pailolo Channel that separates Maui from Molokai. In winter, there’s an excellent chance you’ll see Humpback whales as they slowly cruise the channel—occasionally spouting, slapping their fins, or disappearing for a dive.
Upon reaching Molokai’s isolated coastline, one of the first sights you’ll see beneath you is Moku Ho’oniki rock. This islet was used for target practice by US military bombers, and is right offshore of Halawa Valley—the very first settlement on Molokai. As you whir across Halawa Valley, keep an eye out for Moa’ula Falls that spills through the back of the valley. Even more impressive is Kahiwa Falls, which drops 1,750 feet (533 meters) towards a black sand beach below. Finish the tour with a flight along the tallest sea cliffs in the world—an exclamation point on the tropical beauty you’ll see on this Maui helicopter tour.
