Helicopter Tour over the Hawaiian Islands
A few months ago we promised to share the video footage from our incredible helicopter tour over the Hawaiian Islands of Molokai and Maui. When we shared our photos from the heli-tour we didn’t include any of the insanely tall waterfalls on Molokai because we shot video instead.
It was a constant struggle deciding whether we should shoot video or take photos, or do neither and just take it all in. Molokai was the clear highlight of the 45 minute aerial adventure. It’s an unspoiled island with lush forest, steep sea cliffs and untamed wilderness.
Well, we’ve finally found some time to edit the footage and produce this short video clip.

Fast forward to 45 seconds to see Molokai’s waterfalls and 58 seconds to witness Hipuapua Falls, the largest waterfall in the Halawa Valley dropping more than 500 feet! Head to 1:15 to check out awesome views of Molokai’s turquoise coastline.

A big thank you to the Maui Visitors & Convention Bureau and the good people at Blue Hawaiian Helicopters for the complimentary tour of West Maui and Molokai. I can’t think of a better way to experience the Hawaiian Islands!

woooahh, those waterfalls are even cooler than I already thought, haha. It was so foggy/cloudy when I went that I never saw the bottom. Awesome video!

Thanks Seattle! Glad you like the video.
That’s too bad that the weather didn’t co-operate. Same thing happened to us the morning of our zip-lining excursion. Fortunately, the Haleakala course experienced completely different weather, so we went over there instead. Its funny how such a small island can experience such a variety of weather in one day!
