Air Activities in Maui

The selection of air activities on the island of Maui is truly thrilling. The opportunity to fly over dormant and active volcanoes such as Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Kilauea in Volcanoes National Park is a popular attraction. Watch as lava spills into the ocean!

Beyond viewing these powerful and destructive giants, adventure by airplane or helicopter through the West Maui Mountain to Molokai, where the worlds highest waterfalls spill over the sea cliffs to the Pacific.

Take in lush rainforests with deep valleys and steep ridges while exploring deep into the mountains, where you will truly forget where you are and all sense of time. The way a vacation should be!

With many tour operators throughout the area, there are plenty of options when it comes to booking. Be sure to reference our top picks below.

ZIPLINE ADVENTURE

There are a few zipline companies on the island, ranging in price and length.  The one that we love and get great reviews on is located upcountry. They are not the closest but they are the best. They are located in the paniolo (cowboy) town of Makawao and the scenery is lush and beautiful. Choose from a canopy tour (7 lines) or soar way above the trees in their largest zipline available with over a mile of line!  The views are fantastic, panoramic and absolutely breath taking!  You will get stunning views of the coast, rolling hillsides, forests and Haleakala in this side by side zipling (zip next to a loved one)! The crew is fun, accommodating and they operate in small groups of 8-10 people.

HELICOPTER TOURS

A helicopter is a fantastic way to see the island especially if you don’t have time to explore it on your own!

For the helicopter tours there are several options available to you:

Hana/Haleakala

Hana/Haleakala Tour covers both the rainforest and the crater of the dormant volcano.  Normally, if you decided to drive this on your own, it would be a full day to/in Hana and 8-10 hours to the summit of the crater… The helicopter tour can cover both in approximately an hour!  You will see the rugged coast of the east side of Maui, the hairpin turns that make up the road to Hana and an abundance of flowing waterfalls, bamboo forest, black and red sand beach, the seven sacred pools at the O’heo Gulch and much more.   As you make your way in through the crater take note to the many climate changes that happen.

The West Maui / Molokai

The West Maui / Molokai tours goes deep inside the valley of the West Maui mountains there is an area called the “wall of tears” and at any given time you can expect to see between 10-20 waterfalls just streaming down the sides of the lush, green mountains with beautiful untouched valleys.  The helicopter gets up close to the waterfalls and hovers so that you can snap some breathtaking photos!  Afterward, the tour continues as they cross the Pailolo channel headed toward the island of Molokai. Molokai is one of the smallest islands, but they have the tallest sea cliffs with abundant waterfalls streaming down the sides into the ocean! You will also go past the historical Kalaupapa peninsula where the leper colony once lived.

The Circle Island

The Circle Island tour covers both the rain forest and the crater of the dormant volcano as well as the beautiful West Maui Mountains.  Normally, if you decided to drive this on your own, it would be a full day to/in Hana and 8-10 hours to the summit of the crater… The helicopter tour can cover both in approximately an hour!  You will see the rugged coast of the east side of Maui, the hairpin turns that make up the road to Hana and an abundance of flowing waterfalls, bamboo forest, black and red sand beach, the seven sacred pools at the O’heo Gulch and much more.
