Maverick's Jurassic flight



Posted on: 23 Aug 2016

The Hana Rainforest Experience is a 75-minute helicopter and rainforest landing excursion along the north coast that ventures into remote Hana Rainforest landscape which has been untouched for decades.

The flight introduces guests to the island’s waterfalls, streams, shorelines, natural surroundings and lush vegetation.

They will also see Jurassic Rock, which featured in the original Jurassic Park movie, along with views of distant Haleakala, Maui’s dormant volcano; the beach town of Ho’okipa’s north shore, known for its great surfing; Paia, a charming beach town; and the Road to Hana with its scenic sea cliffs, waterfalls and lush vegetation en route.

A rainforest landing spot, exclusive to Maverick guests, allows passengers to explore the remote landscape by foot and take in those waterfalls and streams along with wild-growing bananas, coconuts, lemons and ginger plants.

“The true magic of this new excursion is experiencing the authentic Hawaiian landscape, in addition to the gorgeous views on the way there and back,” said Greg Rochna, founder and owner of Maverick Helicopters. “We wanted to leave the area as natural as possible, so guests can get up close-and-personal with the Hawaiian rainforest.”

The Hana Rainforest Experience costs $299pp.

Tours leave from Kahului Heliport in Maui.
