Want to learn more about our Oceanfront Landing Tour? Our Oceanfront Helicopter Tour is approximately 75 minutes. You will take off from Kahului and fly over the West Maui mountains and coastline. Fly over Nakalele blowhole and then cross the Pailolo channel to Molokai’s north shore where you will see Halawa Valley, Wailau valley, and Papalaua falls. You will then fly back to Maui where you will at our private site on the North shore of Maui. Enjoy the beautiful views and take pictures before returning to Kahului! Nakalele Blowhole A blowhole is a rare natural occurrence where water pressure from waves creates a geyser of water that shoots up into the air. This happens every couple of minutes and, depending on the tides and surf, water can shoot up into the air over 50 feet at Nakalele Blowhole (which means you can see it from the air!) If you are close enough, you can feel the ground rumble and you will hear a blast as the water shoots into the air, but if you decide to take the hike out, remember to stay back as blowholes can be dangerous! Halawa Valley Halawa Valley is located on the island of Molokai on the east end. It is a beautiful, lush valley with lots of waterfalls. Halawa Valley is believed to be one of the earliest places settled in Hawaii, with native Hawaiians settling here as early as 650 AD. With fertile land and an abundance of fresh water, it was a perfect place to settle. in 1946 a tsunami destroyed many homes in the area and ruined the soil with saltwater, but the area has since recovered. Wailau Valley Wailau Valley is located on Molokai’s north shore and is backed by the tallest sea cliffs if the world. It can be seen by boat or helicopter but in inaccessible by land and nearly unpopulated. Wailau Valley was formed by stream erosion and the name means “many waters.” Papalaua Falls Papalaua Falls is the tallest waterfall in the state of Hawaii. Located deep in Papalaua Valley on the north side of Molokai, this waterfall cascades 1,700 feet. It is surrounded by beautiful green vegetation and is strongest during the rainy season from November-March. It is surrounded by Molokai’s famous sea cliffs, which are the tallest in the world.

Here is what some guests have to say about the experience: “I have been on many Alaskan helicopter tours having worked in Shore Excursions on cruise ships. The Air Maui tour absolutely exceeded my expectations. We did the Haleakala tour with cliffside landing. Amazing to fly up and above the crater and get to see the moon scape without having to hike in! Very cool descent and island fly over with a great landing by the ocean. Was super surprised when we continued around the Hana side and up an amazing narrow canyon. Cameron our pilot was super. Very informative and Kim who handled our reservation was also great. Thanks so much.” – SNORKELALASKA “Haleakala with a cliffside landing and Hana with waterfalls. An absolutely spectacular flight. This is a must do early in the morning tour, as the clouds build very quickly on Haleakala. We had magnificent views of the crater itself, and then off to the south side for a landing were you get to explore some of the sea cliffs. The way back is along the coast past Hana, with incredible views of hidden waterfalls. Highly recommend! Air Maui is the best. Pilots and staff are all wonderful.” – mtfl2018 “I highly recommend the cliffside landing option through Air Maui. We had Cameron as our guide and he was outstanding! We were able to see incredible parts of Maui that you cannot see through traditional tours. This was the favorite part of our family vacation trip.” – Aron S If you have any questions about this tour, or any of the other tours that we offer, please feel free to contact us at (808) 877-7005, or book any of our tours online!

Humpback Whales, 3,000 foot sea cliffs, 1,200 foot waterfalls, 360 degree rainbows (yes, 360!), the lepper colony, olivine pools, blowhole, etc, etc. It was stunningly beautiful!” – Mike B “Doors off a 5 passenger helicopter touring Molokai, Maui and the neighboring ocean. So close to 1,000 ft waterfalls you can feel the coolness of the spray. Climb into the clouds and then descend to some of the tallest sea cliffs on the planet. The perspective you get on the neighboring islands is unique and eye opening. Watching it all go by without doors or glass is something you will come back and do again.” – dbail22 “A must do for anyone visiting Maui. We could not go to the crater because of clouds, so we flew to the cliffs of Molokai and saw the tallest sea cliffs in the world! The views were breathtaking and the pilot was knowledgeable and very pleasant and professional.” – jamesjrich “Such an excellent time. Perfect part of the trip to see things you could not walk or drive to. Chief Pilot Richie was excellent. His commentary was on point and we felt very informed. My wife was not sure she wanted to do the helicopter ride. She said it was beautiful and amazing. She said his voice was calming and relaxing. We saw such amazing things. Highest Sea Cliffs and very Tall Waterfalls. Flying between the valleys was awesome.” – Kristhian P If you are interested in a helicopter tour with Air Maui, book online through our tours page or call us at (808) 877-7005 if you have any questions!
