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
  • 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.

So professional, clean, informative, safe, super fun- the champagne was not only an awesome touch it was actually delicious! Landing in the rainforest to explore was phenomenal! It was muddy, but they had wet towelettes!!! I’m afraid of heights but I did it and it was amazing, I felt very comfortable with the pilot! The turns were a little scary but so fun!!!!

We loved our captain, Rick, and the rainforest landing was unique! It's not ideal that as a family of four, you can't have your own helicopter--my party was placed all in the back row of the helicopter, without the same wonderful views as the front (and for the same price). Plus, you're technically inside with two other people, which is not ideal for COVID-19, but at least everyone was masked. Rick had interesting commentary while we were flying and even found some wild fruit for us at the rainforest stop off. :)

Excellent customer service from beginning to end. Our pilot, Felix, was extremely professional, competent and lots of fun. He explained every step of the safety procedures and was a great tour guide, answering questions and he knew every detail of the areas we flew over. Landing in the rainforest was so much fun, and the spot where we landed was like the Garden of Eden. I loved the Awapuhi plant and the lovely moisturizer it produces! We snacked on bananas and toasted with champagne. This was the trip of a lifetime for me as I have a fear of flying and I am now over it!!!

Shout out to Rick Rickauscus, our Maverick helicopter pilot! This trip was amazing, in fact it was probably our favorite thing in Maui. I have a fear of flying but normally it’s a necessary evil to getting places, however I did not share this before our flight. From the tone of his voice to his playlist of music he was able to soothe any nerves. He explained all the places of interest below and would explain anything he did beforehand..such as turning us around to provide additional photo ops, and this was truly the smoothest ride you could possibly imagine. The landing In the rainforest was again incredible and if he had been balancing a cup of coffee on the dash it would not have splashed or spilled a drop. On landing he proceeded to pour everyone a glass of champagne and lead us on a tour with names and descriptions of all the plants and fruits we were seeing in the area. He was happy to be the photographer for us as well and you could tell everyone’s comfort was paramount on this tour. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone….even those who might be a little apprehensive about a helicopter ride…this was so the highlight of our trip!

This is the way to see the waterfalls on the Road to Hana and experience an easily accessible rainforest. Rick, our pilot, is a great host, providing intermittent commentary and allowing us time to soak in the gorgeous views. When we landed in the rainforest, we celebrated with bubbly and snacked on some of the fruits available there. He shared interesting information about the rainforest, was knowledgeable and attentive to the needs of all passengers. The ground crew was well organized, friendly and clearly communicated everything we needed to know.

This was a gift for my wife. She had never ridden in a helicopter before. She loved the flight. Jake was our pilot and he took off and landed very gently. The rain forest tour was great. Jake was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Jake also made sure we all got a view of all the great places we flew over. Maverick helicopters is a great company and they take care of you.

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!

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!
