Breathtaking views of many falls that are not accessable by any other means. Staff was friendly and professional. Our pilot was calm and confident and provided informative local information for the sights through our headsets. This is the best way to see Maui! We will make this a return event on every visit.

During a weeklong trip to Maui we booked a helicopter tour of west Maui and Molokai. Initially we were on the fence about whether to do it but now don't regret it at all. The staff was friendly and pleasant. There is a required safety briefing prior to boarding. Our pilot was calm and confident and provided informative local information... More

To see the lush beauty of Maui, you have to view it from a helicopter! Our family thoroughly enjoyed our tour even though the weather did not allow us to go into the crater and on to the lush rainforest near Hana. Our knowledgeable and experienced pilot, Pete, quickly improvised and made our trip memorable by taking us lower and... More

I felt safe throughout our helicopter flight. The ride was very smooth over some incredible scenery. The staff made us feel very welcome and went through the safety regulations.

This was easily one of the highlights of our trip! We had never been in a helicopter before. We were a little nervous, but, there was nothing to be nervous about. The views of the island, including the cliffs and water falls were breathtaking! These are views you can not get to any other way.

This trip was the best experience we had this month on Maui. We picked the trip to the north side of Molokai. Some scenes from Jurassic Park were filmed there. The waterfalls and the green, green mountains were magnificent. This is the only way to see this side of this beautiful island, I was very comfortable in helicopter and our... More

If you only do one thing in Maui this should be it. Breathtaking views make for an incredible experience. Company is completely professional and I felt safe. Pilot was excellent, took us so close to waterfalls in a canyon it took my breath away. Did the Molokai Maui trip. Worth every dime.

In Hawaii for the first time and really wanted to take a helicopter tour. This was wonderful, although a bit cramped in the backseat. The tour was west Maui and Molokai Island. Saw some scenery that you could only see from the air, the pilot got us up close and personal with waterfalls, sea cliffs, places they filmed Jurassic Park... More
