What To Expect

Choose between morning and afternoon departure options and then meet your helicopter at Maui’s Kahului Airport at your chosen hour.

Take off into the tropical skies above this scenic Hawaiian island as you embark on a once-in-a-lifetime flight above some of Maui and Molokai’s most scenic views. Enjoy views of mist-shrouded rainbows, thundering waterfalls, sheer vertical cliffs, and lush-green mountain valleys, taking advantage of the perfect photo opportunities afforded by your open-air helicopter cabin.

At the end of your ride, land back at Kahului Airport, still “floating” on air after your incredible doors-off flight. Please note the flight terms and conditions in the itinerary section below.

Maui (Pass By)

With nothing between you and the views, you will be able to experience the unparalleled beauty of the island in the best possible way. And with no windows to create glare, you will get the best pictures possible! See lush rainforests, amazing waterfalls, circular rainbows, and more.  Many of these sights can only be seen from the air, so don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity.  If you're looking for waterfalls and more waterfalls, the combination of West Maui and Molokai's north shore is the ticket. Lush valleys penetrating deep into the mountains, waterfalls cascading down valley walls and vertical sea cliffs. The isolation of these remote landscapes transports you into The Lost World.

Every part of our experience was special! Vince gave us such great history, humor, spectacular views and a particularly amazing sighting of two whales frolicking together and he let us get closer to see them without invading their space. I can't say enough that this will be by far the best part of our first time in Hawaii!

Amazing helicopter tour of sea walls of Molokai and amazing Maui but would like to see one other shoulder strap as added safety should the one and only lap safety buckle inadvertently open or fail. Also my 85-year old dad was quite ill on morning of our event and would have apprecitiated a refund or atleast credit for him as we did have 4 total going. Thanks
Great flight

See the waterfalls and parts of the island not visible any other way. Pilot was great and the doors off allowed for more viewable area.

Experience of a lifetime
David_H, Jan 2023
Exhilarating, thrilling and amazing experience! The scenery was outstanding and doing a helicopter tour without doors is, in my view, the best way to enjoy and capture the experience. Highly recommended.
Well worth the money!
Kaussik_A, Jan 2023
One of the best ways to view west Maui & Molokai. It helped that it was a sunny day - had an awesome view of waterfalls and the valley! Good value for money.
Awesome views!!!

Best Day Ever!
Sharlene_C, Dec 2022
Epic Views! Once you’ve been on doors off ride, you’ll never want to do anything less. It was an incredible adventure. Nathan our pilot was so smooth that our videos and pictures came to life. The falls, cliffs, and ocean are nothing short of breath taking up on birds eye view. Checkin with staff was fast and easy. 45 min of my life has just been blown away by this memory. Hurry and Book it you won’t be disappointed.

Air Maui Doors Off
Jeff_F, Nov 2022
Doors off is definitely the way to go, best opportunity for photos and to see the beauty of Maui and Molokai. Pilot was very knowledgeable about the landscape and Hawaii overall. Great staff made for a very enjoyable experience.
Doors off!!!
KingCoyle, Oct 2022
This was a long awaited experience and the views were amazing. Couple of suggestions one - would be that the person taking the door seat be warned that they will be pinned to the seat and basically unable to turn there heads, second would be that ther be one hell of a lot more attention to seat belts. My wifes seat belt quite honestly was done up Extremly casually. She was on the outside seat and her seat belt actually moved across her body during the flight and she was quite worried she was going to fall out,
Best experience ever
Kathrin_M, Oct 2022
We had such a fantastic experience on Our flight with Richie. He told us a lot about the Island and gave us incredible views
