Kevin's Activity Tips:
For those who want to see the Road to Hana AND want to fly over this spectacular scenery, why not do it all in one day? Especially for guests staying on the West side of the island, it makes for one less trip to the other side of the island. It's a great tour option FOR THOSE WHO ARE PLANNING AHEAD. This one is tough to book last minute, and by last minute, I mean ANYTIME after you've already arrived on Maui. There are only six seats in the helicopter, so do the math. Availability on this one is VERY limited!
There is a morning tour and an afternoon tour. A lot of people book the morning tour because they've heard that "morning is the best time to do a helicopter flight" and I do agree with that advice. But on this tour the helicopter portion is done in the middle of the day ... either way ... and you actually fly a little earlier by booking the AFTERNOON tour! That doesn't seem to make sense until you stop and think about the logistics here. The morning tour starts with the limo van tour of the Road to Hana. While that ground tour is finishing, the afternoon tour takes off in the helicopter and does the sightseeing flight to Hana Airport. THEN THE TOURS SWAP VEHICLES. The morning van tour gets in the helicopter for the return flight and aerial sightseeing on the way back. The afternoon tour gets in the van and does the Road to Hana on the way back to Kahului.
