Hana Rainforest Experience

The Hana Rainforest in Maui is a truly unique destination thanks to its lush vegetation, waterfalls and other stunning examples of Hawaii’s unspoiled beauty. It can be difficult to access by driving, so a helicopter tour offers the best way to see close-up panoramas of the pristine tropical landscape. Maverick Helicopters now offers the ability to access the area by air and also land deep in the rainforest with our Hana Rainforest Experience tour. We’re the only company to offer a combination air and landing tour of the Hana Rainforest, enabling you to have the best of both worlds – a comfortable trip, breathtaking aerial vistas and an immersive experience on the ground.

The entire trip is approximately 70 minutes long, starting at our plush terminal conveniently located at Kahului Heliport. You’ll board one of our luxurious ECO-Star helicopters, which provide 23 percent more cabin space than any other tour-operated helicopter. It’s also the safest tourism-based helicopter in the world and offers significantly reduced flight noise. The ECO-Star’s wraparound windows let you enjoy sweeping 360-degree views, and the theater-style leather seating provides ultimate comfort.

Amazing Sights from the Air

Our experienced, top-notch pilots deliver the highest level of customer service while offering interesting information about the sights you’re seeing.

On our exclusive landing tour, you’ll be able to see:

  • The north coast of Maui, with distant views of Haleakala (a dormant volcano) and the island’s breathtaking sea cliffs
  • Paia, a charming beach town off the North Shore
  • Ho’okipa, a beach famous throughout the world for its windsurfing
  • Jaws (also known as Pe’ahi) a legendary surf area in Haiku
  • The Road to Hana, a curvy coastal road known for its unbelievable views
  • Jurassic Rock, the rock formation featured in the first “Jurassic Park” movie

Exploring the Hana Rainforest on Foot


Your helicopter tour will touch down on our company’s exclusive landing spot deep in Hana Rainforest’s remote landscape. You’ll have approximately 30 minutes to explore the area on foot, taking in all the sights, sounds and aromas from stunning waterfalls, gorgeous streams and natural tropical vegetation, such as banana, coconut and lemon trees. You’ll also be able to see a revitalized taro plantation. The experience is truly one-of-a-kind. Be sure to take plenty of photos to capture Hana Rainforest’s spectacular, unspoiled beauty and every detail of your trip.
