      Maui to the Max by Helicopter

      Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii, USA
      From (USD) $366 Per Person
      Highlights
      • West Maui Mountains: Known to Hawaiians as Maui Komohana, this shield volcano has eroded and collapsed from 13,000' to 5,100' since its last eruption.
      • Mt. Haleakala: Lunar landscaped, and called "House of the Sun," the world's largest dormant volcano makes up 75% of the island of Maui.
      • Ulupalakua Ranch: Maui's second largest cattle ranch was once a top sugar producer and King's playground. Now, it's focused on preserving open spaces.
      • Hana: Including Hana town, the shoreline, Oheo Gulch, and Kano (Disappearing Falls), the area is one of the last undeveloped major paradises on all of Maui.
      • 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

      As we fly over Hawaii's second largest island, you'll see gentle slopes, countless waterfalls, dramatic cliffs, and knife-edge ridges. There is so much beauty. But there is more to Maui than meets the eye.

      Once called "Ihakapalaumaewa" (thank goodness they changed it) and nicknamed "The Valley Island", Maui is ribboned with eroded valleys, the most notable one between Mount Haleakala, the world's largest dormant volcano, and the West Maui Mountains, which are actually what's left of an ancient eroded volcano.

      The 15 volcano peaks making the Hawaiian Islands are part of a chain of 129 volcanoes stretching 3,600 miles nearly to Alaska's Aleutian Islands. These shield volcanoes slowly build themselves up from the ocean floor with accumulated lava flows, growing no more than 10 feet at a time, thus their gentle sloping shape. It is the erosion that causes the severe, dramatic, knife-like ridges. Rivers are cut, mountains are made, and like icebergs calving, sections of mountain tear off, falling into the ocean.

      What we know as Maui today was once part of 'Greater Maui', which erosion and sinking split into four islands. If that pattern continues at its present rate, Maui will become two islands in around 15,000 years, divided between the two volcanoes. Until then enjoy the intact island of Maui and its ever-changing views.

      Dead vs. Dormant

      Mount Haleakala is the world's largest dormant volcano. It is not dead. It is not extinct. It is just taking one helluva nap. An active volcano is one that has erupted in the last 10,000 years. An extinct volcano is never expected to erupt again. And a dormant volcano is one that hasn't erupted in the last 10,000 years, but is expected to. Hmmm; good to know.
