Sunshine Helicopter Tours offers a breathtaking experience you will never forget. Enjoy the views of an active volcano, Haleakala, with its last recorded eruption in 1790. Haleakala is considered to be a dormant volcano and is the largest in the world. You will clearly be able to see the huge moonlike crater with its towering 1,100 foot pure iron oxide cinder cones. One of the most awe-inspiring views on Maui is the Haleakala summit. The flight continues on to Ko’olau and Kaupo Gaps where you will observe the enormous lava flows from the Heleakala crater descending to the ocean. If you want to see what Maui looked like in earlier days, then watch for Old Hana Town. The town has been untouched and has kept its natural landscape for decades. Old Hana Town was once a flourishing town due to the sugar cane industry. Hana Rainforest is the next breathtaking site on the Hana Haleakala Helicopter Tour. The rainforest is Maui’s supreme enchanted wonderland with its large flowing waterfalls and towering bamboo covering vast acres of land. The Pools of O’heo, or commonly known as Seven Sacred Pools, is a sequence of majestic cascading waterfalls and waterfall pools that flow through O’heo Gulch into the nearby ocean. Flying over the Hana coast you will have the opportunity to see the famous aviator, Charles Linbergh’s final resting place under the shaded branches of a Java plum tree. Before Lindbergh died, he drew a simple sketch to design his coffin and his grave site. He lived his last days on the coast of Hana and died August 6, 1974.
