What To Expect
Start your trip at Maui’s Kahului Heliport in the early or late morning (depending on the trip option selected), climbing on board your sumptuously-appointed limo-van to make your way to Hana. Featuring extra-large windows, plush seats and accommodating a maximum of six, this van ensures you’ll enjoy the ultimate in comfort during your ride to Hana.
As you make your way along this incredibly scenic drive, enjoy a few rest stops that allow you to get a sense for the surrounding area. Check out the charming town of Ke’anae, Wai’anapanapa State Park and Waikani Falls along the way, eventually reaching the isolated tropical splendor of Hana. Take time to wander the village before exploring Hana Tropical Gardens on an included guided tour. Discover the history of the native Hawaiians and learn about their culture, then get a few photos at the lush waterfalls and sparkling pools where you can cool off with a swim.
You’ll also enjoy a tasty Pacific Rim lunch during one of your roadtrip stops. Dig into a meal of fish, chicken, fresh tropical fruit and more, all served on luxurious linen place settings at a beautiful beachside setting. A sample lunch menu is listed in the Itinerary section below.
When it’s time to return home, don’t worry about backtracking by car. Instead, make the trip back in style aboard a 6-passenger, air-conditioned ‘A-Star’ jet helicopter. Celebrate your day of adventure with a 36-minute trip above the amazing scenery of Maui, taking in such famous sights as Haleakala Crater (one of the world’s biggest dormant volcanoes) along with gorgeous hidden waterfalls and the rugged coastline. Stereo music and live narration help add to the fun of your trip. You’ll eventually return back to the Kahului Heliport to end your day.
