Your Half Day Tour...
This is by far one of the best ways to maximize your Maui vacation as you get to do in a half day what would take you two days! This out-of-this-world adventure combines the breathtaking experiences of flying over Maui's north shore, rainforest and Haleakala Crater, with a one-way sightseeing tour to or from Hana (depending which tour you choose).
You'll check-in at the Sunshine Helicopters Hangar at the Kahului Heliport at either 6:30 AM or 11:30 AM. The early tour begins with the drive to Hana and the flight back to the heliport, while the later tour flies you to Hana and your return will be by van. BOTH tours include a delicious lunch served at the Hana Fresh Restaurant, where you'll enjoy your pick of one of their available lunch items and a beverage.

AM Tour - Van Tour out and Helicopter Flight back
Check-in at 6:30 AM - Returns by 1:30 PM
Lunch included: Choice of Ham Wrap, Turkey Wrap or Cobb Salad

PM Tour - Helicopter Flight out and Van Tour back
Check-in at 11:30 AM - Returns by 5:30 PM
Lunch included: Choice of Ham Wrap, Turkey Wrap or Cobb Salad

The flight...
This breathtaking flight lasts approximately 35 minutes and covers more of the Rainforest and Haleakala Crater than their 45-minute flight, since it's only 10 minutes shorter and it is only one-way, not round-trip, which means you get to spend a little more time at the waterfalls and crater! You'll see waterfalls not accessible to those driving to Hana and of course, you'll get a bird eye's view of Maui's dormant volcano you could never get even if driving to the summit. 

The Van tour...
Sunshine Tours will take you in one of their 15-passenger Ford Transit Vans but will max out to 12 passengers, so everyone can be comfortable and get plenty of viewing enjoyment. No matter whether you choose the early or later tour, your guide will be making several stops so you can soak in the beauty of Maui's east shore lush vegetation, rugged sea cliffs, Hawaiian fishing villages and more! Your tour will also give you the opportunity to swim at a waterfall and the ocean, so you don't want to forget your bathing suits, towels, and sunscreen.
