The pictures don’t even do it justice. Yesterday was an absolute dream! I haven’t ridden in a helicopter since I was very young so it basically felt like the first time for me. It wasn’t scary at all. I had the front seat with Austin and we saw the most jaw-dropping views of the island. First we flew over the Haleakala craters (a volcano that hasn’t erupted since 1790) and then over the cliffs before we did a cliffside landing. It was windy as hell, but such a pretty sight! Afterwards we went through the green forests and saw dozens of waterfalls (really tall waterfalls) over Hana.
I would definitely recommend a helicopter ride with Air Maui if you guys ever visit. It was indescribable in a way. The pilot played music in the headsets and taught us some facts about the island. I kind of wish that our pilot was a bit more “lively” but he was still super nice.
Thank you to Trip Advisor for organizing this tour for us! It was so easy to book through them.
