If you are looking for a unique, organic way to experience the texture and spirit of the islands while relaxing, an Air Maui helicopter tour is the best way to go. There is no simpler and more comprehensive method to discover these beautiful sights than as a passenger on Air Maui’s 45 Minute West Maui and Molokai Tour. The absolute beauty and texture of these two neighbor islands is revealed to you in breathtaking detail.
Air Maui has been exploring exclusively the islands of Maui and Molokai for the last 25 years, so you’ll be in the hands of experts! Fly along the West Maui (Kahalawai) Mountains with their deep valleys and craggy ridges, painted a plethora of gorgeous colors. Cross the Pailolo Channel—the stretch of the Pacific that runs between Maui and Molokai, and gaze at the intricate system of coral reefs below. During whale season (December through April), be sure to see if you can spot any humpback whales spouting or playing in the waves beneath you; seeing whales from the sky is incredible!
Once you’ve reached Molokai, you will see the highest sea cliffs on the planet! Much of the north shore of the island is inaccessible through any means but air. You will soar above lush rainforests, and feel as though you can reach out your hands and touch the plants, the mountain peaks, and the clear rainwater streaming down the lava cliffs of the extinct Kamakou Volcano. Beautiful, remote waterfalls are easily accessed by your Air Maui pilot, who is mindful of your safety and knowledgeable in location and lore.
This Air Maui helicopter tour is a perfect activity for the whole family, as any age can fly. The helicopter is air conditioned, altitude changes are gradual, and the spectacular scenery changes constantly. The flight is smooth, and you are apt to forget you are flying in a helicopter at all. You might think there would be a constant loud beating of helicopter blades, but once you are settled inside the cockpit with your headphones on, that sound fades away nicely.
You and your family can do nothing but delight in this tour with Air Maui, so have an incredible time!
