Maui is known as the “Valley Isle” because of its two mountain ranges. The West Maui Mountains have hundreds of valleys encircling its highest point, the second wettest place on earth. The valleys leading from this peak are loaded with some of the highest waterfalls on the island. However, they are rarely visible from Maui’s roads. The only way to get a good view of them is from a helicopter. The Hawaiian Islands helicopter tour from West Maui can also include a flight across the channel to the island of Molokai and its thousand-foot high ocean cliffs!
Another spectacular landscape of valleys and waterfalls is Haleakala. The northeastern slopes have hundreds of waterfalls cascading through the jungle forest valleys along the Hana side. There are dozens above it and often a few farther down each valley for every waterfall you see along the road to Hana. From the air, it’s truly stunning how many waterfalls there are – with some even cascading into the ocean! Add to this the beautiful beaches and shorelines, and it’s easy to see why Helicopter tours are so popular on Maui. We have several flight times and routes to choose from that will help you choose a great air tour that’s perfect for you and your family’s time and budget!
