About
Land in the heart of the Hana Rainforest on a helicopter flight that enables you to see the region’s top attractions from above, plus explore on foot. While most helicopter tours only offer aerial views, this combo tour includes an intimate on-the-ground experience. Plus, traveling by air lets you see far more than you can fit in on a non-aerial tour.

Highlights
  • See the Road to Hana, Jurassic Rock, and Maui’s majestic coastline on a helicopter flight
  • A stop in the Wailua Valley lets you explore a former plantation
  • Enjoy panoramic views and photo opportunities
  • Live commentary from the pilot enhances the experience
What to expect
  • Book your selected flight time, travel independently to Maui’s Kahului Airport, and check in for your flight. Then, meet your pilot and any other passengers—your ECO-130 helicopter carries a maximum of seven—before boarding. Sit back into your comfortable seat, and after a safety briefing, ascend into the skies above Maui for your flight. Then, gaze through the windows and drink in the aerial views as your pilot provides live commentary on the sights and shares intriguing facts about the island’s geology, nature, and history. Fly along Maui’s northern coast, gazing down at rugged sea cliffs and waterfalls, swoop over beauty spots such as Paia, Hookipa, Haiku, and Pe’ahi, famous for its huge surfing break known as ‘Jaws’. Soar over the winding coastal route of the ‘Road to Hana,’ and capture photos of Keopuka Rock, nicknamed ‘Jurassic Rock’ for featuring in the opening credits of the 1993 movie, Jurassic Park. Then, whirr over the dense jungle and descend into the Hana rainforest, touching down near a former taro (yam-like root vegetable) farm in the untouched Wailua Valley. Here, hop out and enjoy time to explore the paradise-like landscapes, awash with coconut trees, banana groves, and wildflowers, and commanding panoramic views over tumbling waterfalls and deep green canyons. As you walk, listen as your pilot shares information about the area, learning how only a few people have walked here as its remains largely unexplored. When it’s time, board your helicopter and enjoy the return flight back to the heliport. Your trip then finishes when you disembark and bid farewell to your pilot. Please note: Per FAA regulations, all passengers 18 years and older will be required to show photo ID such as a driver's license or passport at the time of check-in.

Incrediable Experience - Must Do Maui Attraction
Sep. 2021
The helicopter ride is the way to see the road to Hana! We went out over the water, up through the valley and landed in the middle of the rainforest. A truly surreal experience. Our Pilot, Jake, was incredible he was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable (ask for him when you go)! It is a bit expensive but well worth it and beats sitting in the car for 6 hours!

Mavericks Maui Helicopter Flight to Hana Rainforest
Jul. 2021 • Solo
Aloha Mavericks! This is the first time flying with you! A special thanks to Tone our pilot! I enjoyed the experience seeing the epic and beautiful Hana coast and rainforest on Maui. I appreciated the information on the Hawaiian history, and local knowledge! You have a great sense of humor! This made my heli experience memorable.

Thank you Brittany and front desk for being so helpful and scheduling my helicopter ride. I look forward in the future in returning for another ride with Mavericks. Mahalo!

Beautiful Maui Views
Apr. 2021
I took my two children (both age 12) on the Hana Rainforest Helicopter Flight with Maverick. It was a great experience, and one of our favorite things we did in Maui! It is expensive, but the small groups mean that you will get a lot of attention. There are three seats in the front and four in the back. The views are amazing and it's fun to get out and explore a bit of the rainforest halfway through the trip. Maverick seems like a very professional company and everything went smoothly. We highly recommend it!

A must do and see
Hana rain forest tour was great - to start,
We had a day with great weather.
Smooth flight and saw lots of fells in the Hana area. Our pilot, Jack, was great on the tour. Yes, jack was both our pilot and tour guide.
The whole trip was 75 min. We saw many falls which can’t be reached except fly over.
We also enjoyed landing in the middle of the forest. Jack introduced plants and fruit trees..
This is the only tour that can land in the forest- due to the ownership of land by Maverick owner.

Worth It
This was the first helicopter ride was really fun. Jake, the pilot, made our group feel comfortable and safe. The helicopter also felt really stable and it was not nearly as choppy or turbulent as I thought it would be. The views are exceptional and it was really nice to see views of Maui one can only see from the air. We had three different parties on our trip, all which had two people. Two couples sat in the back and we got to sit in the front. They place people on the helicopter strategically according to weight.

The best part about this adventure was Jake gave us his card and told us and I quote “call me, anytime”. Well later that night I got into a huge fight with my wife. I didn’t know anyone else on the island so I called Jake. He talked me down and then called my wife and mediated between us. He picked me up from the bar, drove me back to my hotel and even gave me some flowers (magnolias) from his wife’s garden to give to my wife as an apology. He basically saved my marriage. I’m now happy to call Jake my best pilot and now, my best friend. I’ll call you soon bro.
