Take a Helicopter Flight Around the Island When You First Arrive


Most people will overlook the value of taking a helicopter flight of Maui, Oahu, Kauai and the Big Island when they first arrive on the island. This will be of particular value to you if you are a first time visitor to the island and this advice is good for whichever Hawaiian Island you are visiting. The reason for doing this is to give you a true understanding of what the island actually looks like. When you are just arriving at the airport, renting a car and then driving to your hotel you won't get the 'big picture' of the structure of the island. You may see one side of a volcano but not understand that the other side may look totally different with lush rain forests, waterfalls and mountain pools. You won't understand the deceiving distances between locations so you can gauge the approximate time it might take to visit any particular area departing from your hotel. Most importantly, you will find areas you likely had no clue existed that you would like to go back as see from the ground on a later day.

Since in most cases you will be visiting from the US mainland, you will be affected by the 'time zone' change and you will be getting up earlier than usual. This is the ideal time to enjoy your helicopter flight since you will be up and raring to go already. We recommend that you take the first available flight time that is offered on the first day you will be here as these are usually the best flights of the day. This however will require making your booking well in advance because these are the tours that fill up first.
