Hang Gliding Maui
If you got a good aerial view of Maui while arriving, you may remember the lush, tropical greenery that characterizes this spectacular island. Daredevils can get a better aerial view via a powered hang glider. Fly low over the jungle of Hana, accompanied by a seasoned professional. You'll even get hands-on practice at flying the glider yourself. If you're not staying in Hana, it's best to visit this place while en route to Wai'anapanapa or Oheo Gulch .
Armin is a very experienced pilot who will not only give you a ride you will never forget, but also teach you the fundamental basics of how his aircraft operates. He encourages a hands on approach as you fly over the beautiful coast of northeast Maui. Worth every penny and then some. so, when on Maui, "Get to Hana, and get to flying"!! Tell him the "Marbles" sent you.
It was the best activity we've done during our stay on Maui. Views of Hana, Black Sand Beach, Blue Pool, Pi’ilanihale Heiau in Kahanu Gardens, George Harrison's Estate, waterfalls are well worth one hour stop at Hana airport. My husband and I took 30 min flight each. Armin, the owner and pilot, has tons of optimism and positive energy. He has a good camera attached to the hangglider's wing, and you can get pix or video for additional fee. We paid for one roll of film and Armin split it between two of us. Pictures are unbelievably beautiful! Armin is very easy to book with, and he has a very informative website. He e-mailed me confirmation right away with all the tips how to find Hana Airport and him. Please, do yourself a favor, fly with Hang Gliding Maui.
My husband I scheduled two hang gliding flights for our trip to Maui. We reserved a date and times on-line via the web site and received a confirmation e-mail confirming the date and times. After we received that confirmation, we booked our hotels and additional activities around that date. A week after receiving the confirmation from Hang Gliding Maui, we received an e-mail from the owner requesting to change the date of our flights to two days before the requested date because he wanted to go on vacation. Unfortunately, due to our additional confirmed reservations having been made around this date, we would have only been able to arrive in Hana one day earlier which I offered. This was, apparently, unacceptable and our reservations were subsequently cancelled. Buyer beware. Do not rely on confirmation from this business. Neither their word nor their e-mail confirmation is a guarantee that you will be flying with them during your vacation.

the narrow road, packed with a few cars. If you want to take in the natural beauty of the ...
