Soar over the Pailolo Channel and Molokai’s rugged North Shore for breathtaking views of this paradise getaway island!
Relatively few people, even locals, know of the grand and awesome beauty carved into the mountain that is West Maui. One can drive to the mouth of Iao valley to catch a small glimpse of the magnificent rain forest and towering valley walls which lace the entire mountain. This flight explores one hidden valley after the next and is the only possible way to come to know the real Maui. Knife-edged ridges with mist-shrouded peaks separate the spectacular valleys that give Maui its nickname, “The Valley Isle”.
The Pailolo Channel is a narrow stretch of water that separates Maui and Molokai, and is considered to be one of the most treacherous channels in the world. The channel is about 26 miles long and just 1.5 miles wide at its narrowest point. It is home to some of the roughest water in Hawaii, with winds that can reach up to 50 mph. Because of its dangerous conditions, the channel is only crossed by ships a few times a year. Flying over the channel is an exhilarating experience, and offers visitors stunning views of Maui’s rugged coastline and Molokai’s towering sea cliffs.
