Puu Kukui Heli-Hike Live Auction Package at Buy Back the Beach Benefit Luau

Pu‘u Kukui Exclusive: Heli-Hike & Dinner, 4 People

Four of you will receive the once-in-a-lifetime experience of a full-day, guided heli-hike at Pu‘u Kukui Watershed Preserve. A chopper lifts you from historic Haela‘au cabin* to Pu‘u Kukui, the summit of Mauna Kahalawai (West Maui Mountains) at 5,788 feet. Descend 2.1 miles on the existing boardwalk, break for a brown bag lunch, then finish up the final 2.5 miles back to the cabin. Led by ML&P's Pu‘u Kukui Watershed Preserve staff, the hike will focus on the unique natural communities of the Hawaiian mountain bogs and cloud forests, and the rare native flora and fauna found there. Follow up your hike of a lifetime with an epic dinner at Kapalua’s Plantation House restaurant.

Value: Priceless
