Want to learn more about our Cliffside Landing Tour?
Air Maui’s Cliffside Helicopter Landing and Tour is an amazing adventure! In this blog we would like to share with you a little more about this amazing tour. Of course every trip is slightly different, but here are some highlights of what you might experience on this once in a lifetime adventure, accompanied by pictures taken directly from our in-flight video!
Get a bird’s eye view Maui’s most interesting and scenic locations, including central Maui, Upcountry, south side, north side, and Hana. This tour gives you a great perspective of the island as a whole and the variety of beauty that it has to offer.
The south side of Maui includes Kihei, Wailea and Makena. This area of Maui features lots of popular resorts and beaches. You can also see the islands of Kaho'olawe and Molokini, a popular snorkeling destination, from the air. This is the leeward side of the island, which means it does not get a lot of rain and is very dry.
The Upcountry towns of Makawao, Pukalani, and Kula are much cooler than other areas of Maui, due to their higher elevation on the side of Haleakala. Learn some fun facts about these quaint little towns as you fly by on your way to Haleakala Crater.
Haleakala Crater is a breathtaking sight, with its moonlike cinder cones and fantastic colors. The last time it erupted in was more than 300 years ago, forming La Perouse Bay. But it could erupt again, maybe even in your lifetime! Enjoy the beauty of the crater up close and learn some more interesting facts about this landmark on your flight.
Cliffside Landing Site
Our Cliffside landing site offers a beautiful view from the southeast side of Maui. Look out over the channel between Maui and the big island of Hawaii and enjoy this private moment with amazing backdrops on all sides for pictures.
Continue your tour through the windward side of Maui as you experience tropical rainforests full of breathtaking waterfalls such as Waimalu falls and Kano Falls. You will be able to see the town of Hana from the air, as well as the famous winding road to Hana.

“We took 75 minutes Hana & Haleakala with Cliffside Landing ride. What a view! Our pilot was great. He showed us fantastic views of Maui that you can't see any other way than by air. Must do in Maui.” - Waldemar Z
“We left the heliport heading south towards Haleakala just as the sun was rising over the peak. We flew over Upcountry and around the volcano to get a peek into the crater. Down the other side to land near an oceanside cliff to watch waves crash into the rocks below and turn and look up to the sloping landscape above. And that was just the first half of the trip. The second half was a spin over waterfalls on the east side of the island. We flew above the twisting Road to Hana below. Hovered next to a couple waterfalls before making our return to the heliport. At the end of the trip we bought in to the video package and we've already watched it twice since returning home.” - parshallnet
“Tour was excellent. We essentially went around the island and Troy was able to good us a good vantage point for the crater despite a decent amount of clouds. We touched down at Kaupo Ranch which was a beautiful area on the "deserted" side of Maui. Would definitely recommend.” - Brian B
