With Mauiva AirCruise, you can get a fresh perspective of Orlando's theme parks and Las Vegas's flashing lights—from high overhead in an airplane. Those landmarks are just a small part of each of their flagship tours, the Western Wonder experience and the All-American East experience. On the Western Wonder, for example, you'll jetset between Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, and other iconic destinations on a private plane. At each place, you'll touch down in private terminals and have time for sightseeing and photos (tours and meals cost extra). These longer hop-on/hop-off air cruises often include meals and nightly hotel accommodations. Each flight is led by an FAA-certified pilot.
Beyond the tours, Mauiva also operates smaller-scale plane trips and lessons as part of their Air Tours division. See the sun cast brilliant colors over the Atlantic Ocean during a sunset tour, or catch a dazzling aerial light display in one of the fireworks flights. In the Captain's Package, you can climb into the cockpit with an FAA-certified instructor, helping them to navigate the plane and identify airborne superheroes.
