Helicopter Tours on Your Maui Vacation
While it can be exciting to drive around the island, taking in the breathtaking sight of tropical shorelines, jungles and waterfalls on Maui, it's even more exciting from the air. We have a few highly rated helicopter tour companies on Maui, and we've included some helpful information about each below. All of them depart from the Kahului heliport, which is located about 50 minutes from our Kaanapali vacation rentals. If you have West Maui accommodations elsewhere, the journey will be comparable.
