When you come to Maui, you think about relaxation and enjoying some quality time. There are countless things that you can do here, but, above anything else, there’s one thing that you should really try – an air tour over Maui.
Let’s see what you need to know about it and what the main reasons are why you should make such a tour.
Yes, the landscape is marvelous, and you can’t see it clearly from the ground. Maui is the second largest island from the archipelago of Hawaii and it has places that you can’t reach on the ground. The access to some places on the island is impossible on foot or on boat, and seeing these is only possible with a helicopter.
You’ll also see the beaches, the natural parks, some of the trails that can be seen from above, the beautiful Road to Hana, which you should also try with a car and amazing rock formations that are better observed from the sky.
Seeing an overview of the island will give you better orientation possibilities. It’s a large island indeed, but apart from the amazing landscapes that you can see, you’ll also see how the cities are located, coastlines, roads and other focus points of this area. It’s not something that you realize when you’re on the soil, but from above those things are easy to spot.
The helicopter can take you wherever you want to go, for the time that you’ve rented it.
It’s cheap compared to the experience that you have. It’s true that the price will vary from $100 to $400, depending on the tour operator that you find, but you’ll get great photos and amazing memories. It’s actually cheap if you consider also that you’ll see a big part of the island or even the whole area in just a few hours, a thing that you can’t possibly do on the ground in the same given time.
You Can Choose
As it happens with most tour operators, you can choose the route that you take. The pilots will tell you where they can take you and how much time it takes to go in a certain place. You can choose between one hour or a few hours, depending on what you want to see and how much you can afford to pay. Of course, you can share the helicopter with a few friends, and the trip will be even more amazing.
It’s a One in a Life Time Experience
You don’t get to overfly an island every day, and because of everything that Maui has to offer, it’s something that you really have to try. Overcoming the fear of flight can be very easy, but since you’re here, it’s one of the things that you have to check on your checklist.
