Getting ready for our Maui and Molokai helicopter tour with Sunshine Helicopters
There were several tours taking off all around the same time.
And off we go!
North Western part of Maui
Flying into the valleys
Lots of waterfalls
This whole area use to be pineapple plantations but mostly shut down now
Another helicopter on their way to Molokai
After a few short minutes, we arrive on Molokai
I actually got a bit of vertigo looking down to take this shot. Very uncomfortable
Too bad the weather on this side wasn't so good
Molokai is famous for these tall sea cliffs (highest in the world I believe and featured in Jurassic Park)
Whale watching boats, I'm pretty sure this is the same family that we saw the day before (mother and calf).
First time seeing whales from air, this was the highlight of the whole flight :D
If you look really closely, you can see the calf brushing up against the mom
Back flying through Maui
Heading back to the airport
The gentlemen here talking to our pilot thanking him. He congratulated the pilot on his pilioting because his wife (just getting out in the photo) did not leave any hand prints or marks on his leg, so he was very thankful for that.
