Sunshine Helicopters - Molokai Deluxe Tour
Up, Up, and away! Fly high in the sky with Sunshine Helicopters and explore the gorgeous Pailolo Channel separating the islands of Maui and Moloka’i. Even though the shortest passageway of the channel is only 8.4 miles, it is the roughest and windiest of any of the Hawaiian Islands’ waterways. The Hawaiian translation of the name Pailolo is “crazy fisherman” describing the daring fisherman, who attempts, the challenge of the rough ocean water. Witness places of interest over the eastern shore and the northwestern coastline as Sunshine Helicopters Tour zips across the Pailolo Channel. When whales are migrating during the winter months, you may see a mother and her calf swimming side by side. For sixty to sixty-five minutes, you will have the opportunity to discover the western side of Maui, the rainiest area on the earth and other fascinating Hawaii Attractions. When the weather permits, Sunshine Helicopter Tour will fly over Honokohau Falls, the tallest waterfall on Maui with a descending drop of over 1,100 feet. Witness the remarkable “Wall of Tears” with seventeen waterfalls cascading at the same time. Experience the flight over the 1,750 foot tiered Kahiwa Falls, Hawaii’s tallest waterfall located along Molokai’s secluded north shore. Discover two significantly large waterfalls descending the mountains in the Halawa Valley. Soar over the tallest sea cliffs along the remote North Shore with Molokai Helicopter Tours. Explore Molokai’s Kalaupapa Peninsula, where those suffering from Hansen’s disease lived. Watch for the monument of Father Damien located at the entrance to Hawaii’s state capitol. Father Damien was dedicated to serving those ostracized to the peninsula. Sunshine Helicopters will circle around the mountains for you to get a good look at the Kaanapali and Kapalua luxury hotels and resorts.
