It’s that time of year again! Summer is coming to an end and it is time to get ready to go back to school. Let’s face it, that’s probably a relief for a lot of parents. It can be hard to find a way to keep your kids occupied during the summer. But remember, this is a great time to take some time off and do something special as a family. Hopefully you have had time to travel, play together at the beach, go to the aquarium, or do a fun project together with your kids. Here is another idea of something fun and educational to do together as summer comes to an end.
Taking a helicopter flight is a great way to spend some quality time with your kids. Whether you are visiting, or you live on Maui, it is a great way to learn about the history, geography, plants, and animals of Maui and more! You will also create memories together as a family that you will never forget. Here are some of the things that you might learn about on your flight.
• Fly over Haleakala Crater and learn about this unique and interesting volcano!
• Fly over the rainforest and learn about the unique plants and animals that live here in Maui, including endangered and invasive species.
• Take the complete island tour and see the diversity of biomes that exist here in Maui.
• Take a tour of West Maui and Molokai and learn about the unique and interesting history and geography of this island, which has the tallest sea cliffs in the world!
• Fly over the ocean and you just might spot some sea creatures from the air. You can also see the reefs from a unique perspective.
These are just a few of the things that you can learn about on a flight with Air Maui, all while enjoying an exhilarating, thrilling ride of a lifetime! Your kids won’t even know that they are learning, but these are the experiences that will stick with them forever! Here is what some of our guests have to say about what they have experienced on flights with their families.
“The ride was fun and educational, but the views had my rapt attention. Waterfalls, sea cliffs, majestic mountains. The finale was flying into a keyhole accessible only by helicopter. It was a rare very clear day and we got so close to the waterfalls it felt like you could reach out your arm and touch the water. Don't miss it!!!” - b b
“Best experience ever! I took my 14 year old daughter on this tour, and it was the most exciting, educational, and scenically beautiful ride. Thanks to Rich, our pilot, we saw things that most will never see in life. We would do it again in a flash!” - CaliIndica
“This was our first helicopter ride and it was amazing! We were surprised by how smooth the ride was - really smooth. The views were spectacular - breathtaking! Our pilot was superb. He was extremely knowledgeable of the areas we toured. He was a great narrator, which made the tour educational as well as beautiful. I would, and have, recommended Air Maui to others.” - Tom M
“This was the first helicopter tour experience for our family including children between ages of 10-13. Our pilot had a nice blend of giving the history and interesting facts about the island and allowing for some banter free time when we could just take in the awesome sights and enjoy some nice music. She was quick to pick up on the interests of our kids and include them in some of her narrative of our trip.” - Jill G
“The staff could not have been nicer and my family enjoyed their very experienced woman pilot who talked to my children about aviation careers! We have done a LOT on this trip (Pearl Harbor tour on Oahu, surf lessons, scuba diving, luau) and this was my 17 year old son's favorite thing.” - Okcaggie
