Lanai: Molokai Sea Cliffs
Explore the islands of Lāna‘i and Moloka‘i from above with Paradise Helicopters. Launching from Lāna‘i, there is no time to waste getting to the north side of Moloka‘i, where millennia of exposure to the natural elements of wind, wave, and rain have sculpted the tallest sea cliffs in the world. They are sure to take your breath away as you explore amidst the sheer waterfalls and drop offs decorated by lush tropical forests. After crossing by the historical town of Kalaupapa, you will view northern and eastern Lāna‘i – including Kānepu‘u dryland forest preserve, Keahiakawelo (the “Garden of the Gods”), Polihua, and long, sandy beaches – as you finish the circuit.
- This is a private helicopter tour. Your party of up to six guests will enjoy the helicopter all to your selves.

Make your tour epic with our exclusive and signature add-ons.
Upgrade your Molokai Sea Cliff tour to include a 30-minute landing at Paradise’s exclusive Moloka‘i Lookout. You’ll take in views of the remote Kalaupapa peninsula below, and look down the shoreline to glimpse the world’s tallest sea cliffs. Enjoy a toast of bubbly and gourmet pupus (appetizers) while you enjoy the views.
Soak in stunning views and slow down to “Molokai time” while you enjoy a light snack and the vantage of our exclusive Molokai Lookout. Over millennia, the elements have worked together to carve beautiful ridges that stand proud of the sea. You will feel a world away with the world’s tallest sea cliffs trailing toward the horizon in both directions, building in height to over 4,000 feet above sea level to the east. Meanwhile, the expanse of the Kalaupapa Peninsula nestles 600 feet below at the foot of the cliffs, hemmed in by the wind-tossed ocean. This landing is a special opportunity to grasp how the unique history of Kalaupapa is intimately tied to the isolation of its landscape. It was on this remote finger that over 8,000 people were sentenced to live and die due to leprosy. Now a National Park, Kalaupapa is a monument to the strength of the human spirit illustrated time and again by these brave souls and by the immense compassion of the people who were compelled to help them, notably Father Damien and Sister Marianne Cope.
