Blue Hawaiian Helicopters – Eco-Star Hana and Haleakala – 45 Minutes
As you view Haleakala Crater from above the south rim with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, you can’t help but wonder the thoughts of the first men that step foot on the moon. With its lunar-like landscape, it is no wonder this flight is the most popular helicopter tour on Maui. The new visitor restrictions for Sunrise viewing at Haleakala National Park will only enhance the popularity of this flight. The eastern slope of Haleakala is dotted with waterfalls. Like thin slivers threading its way down the mountain, tumbling into deep canyons forgotten and untouched by time. As this Maui helicopter tour winds its way north back to the heliport the sights are a memory in the making. To get a true understanding of this portion of Maui, you need to experience a helicopter tour with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters. It will not only open your eyes to the real beauty of Maui but also your awareness of the challenges Maui faces on a daily basis regarding climate change and the fragile state of our national resources.
Tip of the Day:
Dark colored clothing is recommended. Light colored clothing will reflect in the curvature of the windows by putting a glare in your picture.
A live action video of your helicopter tour of Maui is available after the flight. You can purchase it and take it home with you. It would make a great memory of your Maui vacation and most certainly a topic of conversation.
The Eco-Star Helicopter:
Like all Maui touring helicopters, the Eco-Star seats six passengers and the pilot. The seating arrangement with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters is two in the front and four across the back. All seats are buckets that provide the feeling of your very own seat. The back seats rise higher than the front row of seats for a better viewing experience. The Eco-Star features the following amenities that enhance your experience.
An extra 60 square feet of glass windows for better viewing.
A 4 camera digital DVD system with a cockpit camera that puts you in the video.
Two-way communication between you and the pilot.
Bose aviation grade noise canceling headsets.
First class seats with 23% more cabin area for more personal space.
The most advanced 21st-century helicopter technology that provides an ultra-quiet, smooth and fuel-efficient ride.
Maui helicopter flights routes may change due to weather conditions. Extensive cloud cover can alter the routes as outlined by the FAA ruling that all flights must maintain a distance of 500 feet between the clouds and the ground.

Such a cool experience! The flight was smooth. We saw the island from the air and were able to see whales. The pilot, Mike, was an awesome guide. He knew all about the island and made sure that he maneuvered the helicopter so that people on all sides of the aircraft had great views and photo opportunities.
Awesome experience with breathtaking views of Molokai, west Maui. We spotted some Manta Rays and whales as well. The aerial views of the valleys and waterfalls were stunning especially with the accompanying music in the headphones. The tour was for 45 minutes and there was a safety video played before the trip to make us understand what to expect. For those who are unable to take the tour and are waiting, the staff were courteous and the waiting room had coffee and restrooms with some refreshments. There was a TV playing aerial views from helicopter of the various islands of Hawaii.
Nice pilot and obviously beautiful views, but unfortunately my side of the helicopter was almost always facing away from points of interest. I was mostly looking at the ocean during this trip. Not worth the money. The pilots should do a better job of making sure that everyone has similar opportunities to see points of interest. Its a lottery right now.
Derek, the pilot was genuinely happy and a great pilot. He really wanted to give the guests a great scenic adventure. I’m happy he gets to live his dream. He made our dream come true this morning, as well ❤️🌈
Excellent experience. Knowledgeable friendly staff. Felt safe the entire time. Very well priced for the experience.
