It would be a mistake to rely on words to describe a helicopter tour of Maui. Call it a mythical ride on a magic carpet. Call it a page from a fairytale. It’s like watching a movie, hitching a ride on a butterfly, or drifting along in a dream. It’s a multi-sensory experience that cannot be analyzed, digitized or translated into words much more complicated than “Wow!”

Most helicopter tours offer views of the lunar-like surface of Haleakala Crater and the waterfall-laced coastline of the North Shore rainforest. Some companies fly to Moloka`i, where towering waterfalls and 3,000-foot vertical sea cliffs provide a spectacular sight. Tours depart from the heliport at Kahului Airport.
