My childhood includes many wonderful memories of Maui: boogie boarding, sunburns, snorkeling for hours on end, the scent of leis, rainbow sunsets, and more. It was enough to make me believe that I truly knew everything there was to know about the Hawaiian island. That is, until I returned as an adult and saw it from an entirely new perspective: the air. Boarding a doorless helicopter and heading to the skies is an exhilarating, heart-pounding way to see Maui and a humbling experience for someone who thought they’d seen it all. These photos show how spectacular Maui is from above and prove just how much land there is yet to explore on the ground.
