      Hana, Haleakala, and Maui's Rugged Shoreline by Helicopter

      Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii, USA
      From (USD) $253
      Highlights
      • Mount Haleakala: Explore the giant moonscape valley atop the world's largest dormant volcano, declared the "House of the Sun" by the demigod Maui.
      • Road to Hana: Follow Maui's rugged eastern shoreline, spotting hundreds of waterfalls, the nation's largest rainforest, and the harrowing Hana Highway.
      • Seven Sacred Pools: Fed by the Pipiwaj and Palikea, there are actually dozens of pools cascading one into another, through the rainforest, to the ocean's edge.
      • Keanae Peninsula: Float beside a towering waterfall on a gnarled outcropping created by one of Mount Haleakala's immense lava flows.
      • Eco-Star or A-Star Helicopter: Pick your ride! The Eco-Star was created just for aerial tours and provides individual seating for up to 6 people with a smoother quieter, ride. The A-Star provides an open cabin with 180 degree views but a little less space than its brother- both provide excellent views of Hawaii unseen by most.
      About this Lahaina, Hawaii tour

      Legends claim that when the Gods of Creation, Kane and Kanaloa lived on Maui, it was completely dry, until the day Kane visited Keanae, when he thrust his wooden staff into the solid rock, causing water to gush out. Since then, Keanae has had no water shortages.

      Another Keanae legend tells the tale of an ambitious chief who wanted the peninsula to become farmland. So he had his villagers tote baskets of soil down from the higher ground, transforming it into the fertile taro-root farmland it is today.

      Today, Keanae Peninsula is a ragged reminder of nature's extremes, its coastline so gnarled, only determined Hala trees can hang on. Birthed by one of Mount Haleakala's massive lava flows, Keanae Peninsula got thrashed in the 35-foot tsunami of 1946. The only structure that survived was the then 90-year-old Old Stone Church, called "Ili'ihio lehowa o na Kaua."

      Launched by a monster 8.6 earthquake in the Aleutian Islands, the devastating tsunami was 100-feet tall at its epicenter, and brought only one good thing to Hawaii: the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. Now based on Oahu's Ewa Beach, it is still used, helping to keep Hawaii safe with advance warnings.

      The love-snatching wind of Kipahulu

      An old Hawaiian song and legend tell of a Kipahulu woman who left her family for an Oahu man. Heartbroken, her husband consults a kahuna well versed in the sorcery of love. The kahuna had the grieving man speak and blow into a shell, wrap it, and throw it to the sea. The woman found it fishing, unwrapped it, had her homesickness awakened, and returned to her family.
