Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    See the highlights of West Maui, then look for humpback whales (in season) as you cross the Pailolo channel to discover Hawaii’s tallest waterfalls along Molokai’s remote and isolated north shore. See and learn about the settlement for patients with Hansen’s disease at Kalaupapa where  Father Damien ministered to their needs in the late 1800’s. Then return through the heart of the West Maui Mountains.

    Molokai’s isolated north shore boasts the world’s steepest sea cliffs that were created by a massive “earthslide” 1.4 million years ago. Some of these cliffs rise 3,000 feet into the misty rain forests of Kamako’u (Elev. 4,961’). Soar through ancient valleys where some of Hawaii’s first settlements were located and fly by plunging waterfalls that provide stunning scenery for one of the most spectacular aerial tours on earth. 

     

    On the return to Maui view the ancient Hawaiian Fish Ponds and the longest, fringing coral reef in the  United States at nearly 25 miles long.

    We were originally supposed to tour Haleakala & Hana, but the weather did not cooperate. Instead we ended up flying over West Maui & Molokai. We saw locations only reachable by helicopter - the scenery was incredibly beautiful! Our pilot Pete did a fantastic job & everyone on

    Good trip, with beautiful scenery and an informative pilot. Staff is helpful, and they take safety seriously. Most importantly, they have a lift to help wheelchair users easily access the cabin. Most enjoyable experience.
