Maui Helicopter Tours near the Mauian Hotel
For many visitors, a Maui helicopter tour proves to be their most memorable and thrilling island activity. Viewing Maui by air is truly an unforgettable experience...soaring over the desolate volcanic crater of Haleakala, through the lush rainforests and cascading waterfalls of Hana, over the sea - and the humpback whales - on an excursion to the island of Molokai. It’s an experience like no other.
There are a number of reputable and highly-experienced helicopter tour companies to choose from on Maui. Virtually all of them provide headsets for two-way communication between the pilot and passengers during the flight. And the flightseeing is generally accompanied by dramatic music, with the pilot breaking in occasionally to provide narration as you approach specific points of interest. Most Maui helicopter tour companies also offer a video of your flight as a memento you can view again and again at home, long after you’ve said “aloha” to the islands.
In choosing a helicopter tour, review the company’s background, the flightseeing tours they offer, and the different types of helicopters that are used. Some of the most modern, state-of-the-art touring helicopters are designed for noise reduction, ultimate passenger comfort, and maximum viewing. So read up, and make your decision based on whatever best suits your needs. Just one precaution: don’t combine any high altitude activity (like a helicopter ride or a visit to the summit of Haleakala) with scuba diving within 24 hours.
