Maverick Helicopters, which has provided VIP aerial excursions in Nevada and Arizona for nearly 20 years, is now offering tours in Maui, Hawaii. All flights are aboard Airbus EC130 helicopters, which have big wraparound windows, a roomy cabin that seats seven, low vibration, and quiet technology that reduces outside noise by 50 percent. The lower noise level not only provides a more relaxing experience for passengers but also reduces the impact of the helicopter tours on the natural environment.

Full-island tour flights depart from the Kahului Heliport, with scenic destinations including the dormant volcano at Haleakalā National Park, the Hana rain forest, the neighboring island of Molokai, waterfalls, and Maui’s beautiful tropical coastline. In the winter months, humpback whales can sometimes be spotted swimming just offshore. Most flights last 40 to 70 minutes and cost from $329 to $399 per person. Custom tours and private charters can also be arranged. (flymaverick.com)
