Hana Rainforest Experience

Experience a Maui helicopter ride unlike any other during the Hana Rainforest Experience. Explore Maui’s authentic and remote landscape featuring an exclusive 30-minute landing within the Hawaiian Rainforest

Fly along Maui’s North Coast with views of breathtaking sea cliffs and cascading waterfalls on your 40 minute roundtrip helicopter flight. Aerial shoreline perspectives above Paia, Hookipa, Haiku, the famous surf destination – JAWS, the Road to Hana and the iconic Jurassic Rock lead you to our exclusive landing destination deep in the Hawaiian rainforest.

Descend and land for a ground exploration on a former taro plantation in the Wailua Valley. Traverse the lush vegetation including banana, coconut and wild flowers and indulge in scenic panoramic views as you are surrounded by canyons and waterfalls. Your pilot will provide extensive information about this remote Hawaiian landscape, a land which very few people have ever stepped foot on. This approximately 75-minute immersive Hawaiian experience is a one-of-a-kind Maui excursion
