What To Expect

When you book a helicopter tour on Maui, you gain entry to a world that only a handful of visitors will see.

 From the moment you lift off from Kahului Heliport you’re surrounded by gorgeous views—from fields of green sugar beneath your feet to the turquoise northern shoreline. In the luxurious, 6-seat, A-star helicopter, cruise your way towards the knife-thin ridgelines of the rugged West Maui Mountains, while your expert pilot provides historical narration through the comfortable two-way headset.

As you buzz through the middle of the eroded volcano, soar past the famous “Wall of Tears” and its dozens of cascading falls, and see 1,100-foot (335-meter) Honokohau Falls—the tallest waterfall on Maui. When you exit the middle of the West Maui Mountains, you’ll fly above the white sand beaches of the island’s Kapalua coast, before crossing the whitecapped Pailolo Channel that separates Maui from Molokai. In winter, there’s an excellent chance you’ll see Humpback whales as they slowly cruise the channel—occasionally spouting, slapping their fins, or disappearing for a dive.

Upon reaching Molokai’s isolated coastline, one of the first sights you’ll see beneath you is Moku Ho’oniki rock. This islet was used for target practice by US military bombers, and is right offshore of Halawa Valley—the very first settlement on Molokai. As you whir across Halawa Valley, keep an eye out for Moa’ula Falls that spills through the back of the valley. Even more impressive is Kahiwa Falls, which drops 1,750 feet (533 meters) towards a black sand beach below. Finish the tour with a flight along the tallest sea cliffs in the world—an exclamation point on the tropical beauty you’ll see on this Maui helicopter tour.

The staff are keen to make sure you are very safe and enjoy your trip. The pilot was friendly and gave you lots of information. After our trip we discussed it with other tourists and we definately got a bigger and more thorough trip than those offered by other companies from the same airport
Really a great time

Amazing and unforgettable views! An experience I won't forget. The only downside was the very loud rock music that was playing the whole time, and the pilot was nice, and gave a few facts here and there, but overall wasn't too engaged with the tourist group. I had the feeling he enjoyed flying helicopters more then giving tours, and this was a way to pursue his passion. Nothing wrong with that, just that felt he was there more for himself then for us.

Timothy G, Jun 2012
The views were breathtaking and well worth it! The tour guide however was was too touristy and boring... Rather than being informative about the island and its culture it was as cheap advertisement for sites nd restaurants etc. Could have and should have been better!
