Activity Details
This deluxe version of Maui's Circle Island flight is bound to become the most awesome 60-70 minutes you'll spend while on the island of Maui!  It features an in-depth view of both of best worlds, the East and West sides of Maui.  West Maui is one of the wettest places on earth and features long streaming waterfalls and vibrant green valleys as the trademarks of this incredible volcanic wonderland; once there you'll also fly by Launiupoko, Olowalu and Ukumehame valleys, not to mention views of Old Lahaina Town as well as Kaanapali and Kapalua.  The East side features the Hana Rainforest and Haleakala Crater. There you'll get to climb above central Maui and ascend the world's largest dormant volcano, Haleakala (Literally "house of the sun") and discover its immense moonlike crater with pure iron oxide cinder cones towering over 1,100 feet tall. See Kaupo and Ko'olau Gaps, the huge lava flows from the crater to the sea. Hana's nearly uninhabited "back side" is home of the "Seven Pools" and Lindberg's grave. The Hana Rain Forest extends for over 180 square miles along Maui's northern coast and is the largest tropical rain forest in our nation. Also featured are: Haleakala National Park, Kipahulu, the taro field of Ke'anae, fabulous coastline waterfalls and the world famous Ho'okipa windsurfing beach on the return. Whale watching in season. Weather permitting.

Weight & Size Guidelines: Helicopter weight and balance changes with every flight because of passenger weight, pilot weight and length of flight (fuel weight). It is important that we have accurate body weight from every passenger. FAA regulations require all passengers and their carry-on items to be weighed at time of check-in. If a standard airline seat belt is too small or you weigh over 240 pounds you may be required to purchase a comfort (one extra) seat on the FX STAR. 

IMPORTANT:  All participants will be weighed upon check-in.  MauiActivities.Com requires you to report each passenger's weight when placing your order.  It's imperative the reported weights be accurate or you may be subject to being bumped off your flight without any compensation or refund.  MauiActivities.Com (Ohana Fun! Hawaii) cannot be held responsible and will not issue any refunds for customers bumped off their flights for having misinformed us about their weight.

In order to allow the best viewing for all participants, there will be NO IPADS OR TABLETS ALLOWED DURING YOUR FLIGHT.
