MAUI CIRCLE ISLAND DELUXE HELICOPTER TOUR
Experience The Allure Of The Valley Isle
Combine explorations of Maui’s East and West sides on this epic circle island adventure. From the air, you will be able to see the varied and beautiful landscape of Maui laid out before you like a living map. From the gentle slopes of Haleakala, to the legendary Wall of Tears hidden in the West Maui Mountains, this guided tour is sure to satisfy your sense of adventure.
You may not have seen the Wall of Tears on many guidebooks or websites, and that is because it is hidden deep in the West Maui Mountains and not very accessible from the ground. As many as 17 waterfalls can be seen cascading down a cliff face at a time, hence the name Wall of Tears. A helicopter is one of the best and only ways to see this incredible site.
Seven Sacred Pools
‘Ohe’o Gulch, otherwise known as Seven Sacred Pools, was added to Haleakala National Park in 1969. When the water levels are up, there are seven main pools and dozens of smaller pools branching off of them. From the air, this site is truly magnificent.

Narrated by your pilot
Be sure to arrive at the Kahului Airport 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time to check in for the flight and meet your pilot. After lifting off, your pilot will head to the interior of the West Maui Mountains, which could be described as a misty wonderland. Steep volcanic ridges covered in thick vegetation reach towards the sky and in between those ridges lay miles of jungle valleys. Highlights of the West Maui Mountains include the Wall of Tears and Maui’s tallest waterfall which is Honokohau Falls. As your pilot follows the West Maui coastline back towards Central Maui, you will be treated to views of the resorts in Kapalua and Kaanapali as well as beautiful and historic Lahaina Town.
After flying over the now overgrown sugarcane and pineapple fields of Central Maui, your pilot will ascend the gentle slopes that lead to the peak of the world’s largest dormant volcano, Haleakala. The inside of Haleakala’s central crater is an otherworldly landscape with massive iron oxide cinder cones that reach over 1,000 feet into the air. Around the backside of Haleakala, enjoy views of Kaupo, Ko’olau Gap, the Seven Sacred Pools, Charles Lindbergh's grave and much much more. Following the coastline, the jungle will become much more dense as you approach the small town of Hana nestled in the rainforest. As the tour continues following the traditional route of the Road to Hana, be prepared to see unforgettable views of the jungles, waterfalls, sea cliffs, and volcanic peninsulas that make this region so incredible. As the tour concludes, you will fly over Maui’s North Shore which is home to legendary surf breaks and the small town of Paia.
