This flight inches up the slopes of Haleakala, and at the peak (10,023 feet), they dip into the crater which is large enough to fit the Island of Manhattan in! The crater looks like the surface of the moon. Then they go over the other side and into the rainforest and over the jagged Hana coastline with so many waterfalls you’ll lose count. Then they take you past Hana and show you the tip of Makenna which is the last lave flow Haleakala surged before she went dormant a little over 400 years ago. There you can see the Molokini crater off the coast of the South side of the Island. You turn back into the canyons with dense foliage and then inch back down the slopes of Haleakala and land back at the heliport.
