Best Of Hawaii

A combination of our West Maui and Hana/Haleakala Tours – with an exciting extra bonus!

This detailed tour of the entire island begins with a flight exploration of the most magnificent West Maui valleys, rainforest, and waterfalls. Then comes the bonus: we land at our scenic and exclusive remote landing site at Ulupalakua Ranch, on the slopes of Haleakala! Refreshments are served while you enjoy the breathtaking scenery and pastoral setting for approximately 20 minutes. The flight then continues for a 45-minute exploration of East Maui, including Hana & Haleakala.

Tour routes and sights visited may vary according to wind and weather conditions.

Schedule:

  • Availability: Daily
  • Tour Times: Available between 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM
  • Duration: 1 Hour 30 Minutes

Recommendations:

  • Wear solid dark-colored clothing. Our helicopters are temperature controlled so dress comfortably but wear dark clothing. This will cause less reflection in the windows to allow a clear view of all the sights. It will also allow you to take better photos and video without clothing items or light-colored logos or patterns from your clothing reflecting in the photos that you and other guests would like to take of the magnificent scenery. Hats are not allowed to be worn around the helicopters as they can fly up into the rotors and damage the aircraft. We will be happy to hold any hats for you until you return from your tour.
  • If your tour includes a landing, we recommend closed-toed shoes such as athletic shoes. The ground at our remote landing sites can be uneven and sometimes a bit wet. At some landing sites there is a chance to walk around and get the best angle for your photos and videos so closed-toed shoes are best in these remote locations. Also, remember to bring a sweater in case it’s chilly.
  • Bring your camera or cell phone (on airplane mode) to take photos and video of your tour. Even if you plan to purchase our inflight video, you will not want to miss an opportunity to save these memories.
  • If you are particularly prone to motion sickness, taking a precautionary anti-motion sickness medication is a good idea. However, our flights are very smooth and turns are slow and gentle. This is a professional scenic tour, not a thrill ride. Most people do not experience motion sickness and do not need an anti-motion sickness medication.

Restrictions/Requirements:

  • Do not go SCUBA diving within 24 hours prior to your tour. You may snorkel, swim, or go SNUBA diving but for safety-sake do not SCUBA dive within 24 hours before your tour. However, there is no risk in going scuba diving after your helicopter tour.
  • FAA regulations require us to weigh all guests and bags at check-in. We do this discreetly for your privacy. Please be accurate as possible when providing weight information.
  • For each guest weighing 260 pounds or more, an adjacent, empty seat purchase is required to safely balance the aircraft. The charge for a comfort seat is reduced to 50% off of the regular tour price.
  • Blue Hawaiian Helicopters is a Part 135 On-Demand Air Carrier. Preferred times may be adjusted due to demand and availability. Flight departures are approximate and may change according to seasonality.

I didn’t have the opportunity to see Maui from the air the first time I traveled. But I decided to do it this time with my girlfriend. The experience was staggering. I remembered the best part was the see all the West Maui valleys, rainforest, and waterfalls. This is a tour that I’d recommend to anyone who wants to visit this beautiful island. It is almost imperative to see it from above.

I was uncertain about what helicopter tour to take during my visit to Maui. I heard some people saying that the best tours are the Hana-Haleakala tours and other friends told me to take a West Maui Tour specifically. I traveled with my family so it was pretty much an at least decision that will cost me more than a thousand dollar. Therefore I wanted to be right. After doing some research I found this tour which combines both. I am happy I took some extra minutes researching that day. The tour is all I expected. The west Maui side and the Hana-Haleakala side are so beautiful. I will book it again in my next trip to Hawaii.

My wife and I decided to take this tour since our concierge recommended it to us. We wanted a tour with more than 45 mins flight time and this one got the job done. I liked the fact that the tour is wisely divided: in the first time for almost 30 minutes you get to see the beauty of all the west Maui area and then you fly for about an hour on the Hana-Haleakala area. We were satisfied with our decision.
