Molokai and Maui Helicopter Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Discover the beauty of two of the Hawaiian Islands on this scenic helicopter tour from Kahului, Maui. After meeting your pilot, you’ll board the 7-passenger helicopter and depart for the lush island of Molokai, where you’ll see dramatic valleys and the world’s highest sea cliffs. Then see Maui from above as the helicopter soars past waterfalls, mountains and rainforest. This is an unparalleled way to experience the splendor of Hawaii. Choose from several departure times to suit your schedule.
  • Fly over two islands: Molokai and Maui
  • See cliffs, ocean, and jungle, in addition to possible wildlife, such as whales
  • Catch sight of Honokohau Falls, West Maui Mountains, and more from the air
  • Incredible aerial views aren’t available by any other means
What to Expect
Make your way to the Maui heliport for a quick safety briefing before liftoff. Admire views of surfers and jungle canopy from panoramic viewing windows, as you make your way to the island of Molokai. See Kahiwa Falls, massive sea cliffs, and the serene North Shore, as your guide tells you about the area’s sights and history. Continue over Halawa Valley, the Molokai fish ponds, and Pailolo Channel and then fly over Maui sights, such as Iao Valley State Park, Honokohau Falls, and the West Maui Mountains. Take in views of Haleakala volcano on your way back to the heliport, where your tour ends. Please note: Per federal regulations, passengers 18 years and older require government-approved photo ID.

Only certain helicopter tour groups do the doors-off option, and this group doesn't seem to offer that option.
