Blue Hawaiian Helicopters has announced a new partnership with Piiholo Ranch Maui to offer guests the "Heli Ranch Experience," an opportunity that combines a private helicopter tour and horseback ride on Maui.
“Partnering with Piiholo Ranch Maui allows us to offer our guests a unique air and land adventure,” said Gregg Lundberg, president of Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, in a written release. “The excitement of a helicopter tour combined with a peaceful horseback ride makes this the perfect tour for those who want to experience the beauty of Maui from different vantage points.”
Guests who book the Heli Ranch Experience will fly from Kahului up the north side of Haleakala to Hana Town and view East Maui waterfalls before landing at Piiholo Ranch, which is located up at 2,000 feet on the slopes of Haleakala.
Complimentary pastries and coffee will be served at the Baldwin family cabins before guests embark on a two-hour horseback ride through lush green pastures and fragrant eucalyptus forests, experiencing both ocean and mountain views.
The Heli Ranch package includes roundtrip SUV limo transportation from the guest’s hotel to the Blue Hawaiian heliport in Kahului and from Piiholo Ranch to the guest’s hotel. Packages begin at $3,355 and are available for two, four and six-person experiences. Custom itineraries are available upon request, and group bookings and special occasions can be accommodated with advanced notice.
