Aboard the Whisper STAR with Sunshine Helicopters, you will soar above the Valley Isle. The extinct West Maui Mountains, and the dormant volcano, Haleakala, created Maui two million years ago. Haleakala (literally “house of the sun”) sits 10,023 feet above sea level, and is a massive lunar-like crater with pure iron oxide cinder cones towering over 1,100 feet tall. On this flight you will glide over Kaupo and Ko’olau Gaps, where lava flowed from the crater to the sea.
Gaze upon Hana’s almost uninhabited backside, Lindberg’s grave, and the Seven Pools. The Hana Rain Forest is the large largest tropical rain forest in the country, and extends for over 180 square miles along north coast of Maui.
The rolling waterfalls and lush green valleys make West Maui one of the wettest places on earth. If the weather permits, the tour’s highlights include: Maui’s tallest waterfall with over 1,100 foot drop, “Honokohau Falls”, and the Wall of Tears with over 17 waterfalls flowing simultaneously. Along the West Maui coastline, you will also see the expansive resorts of Kaanapali and Kapalua, and the quaint historic whaling harbor, Old Lahaina Town. Experience the verdant valleys of Launiupoko, Olowalu and Ukumehame. And gaze upon central Maui’s pineapple and sugarcane fields.
