Mokulele Airlines - Expedition Big Island Air Tour (from Kapalua or Kahului Airport)
Enjoy a breathtaking trip across Maui and over to the Big Island to see volcanoes and back! This tour is great for guests in Maui looking for a chance to see the volcanoes of Big Island without doing a one-day fly over or hopping islands for a day or two. See the island of Maui, the Big Island and volcanoes all in this 2 hour flight.
Begin the flight with views of West Maui’s breathtaking coastline before continuing to see picture perfect valleys, spectacular sea walls of Maui and pristine beaches. Depending on weather conditions you can also catch glimpses of waterfalls. The flight path goes over popular landscapes seen in many films like Jurassic World. In the distance the Haleakala Crater can be seen and the town of Hana before the flight heads over the Alenuihaha Channel to the Big Island.
Once over Big Island you will see the Hamakua Coast on the eastern shore and the Kohala Cliffs and Hilo town. Continue south and see the lava tubes, where lava often flows into the sea, and catch a glimpse of any volcanic activity in the area. The flight will then head north viewing the volcanoes of Mauna Loa, Kilauea and Mauna Kea before crossing back over the channel. On the return flight over Maui see Maui’s southern coast, Waimea, Kihei and Lahaina.
