I have flown out of many small airports before to access helicopters, gliders or prop planes and have come to expect unorganized under resourced operations always leaving you a little worried if you will actually get your flight and most importantly wondering how safe they are. Air Maui is a very professional operation that they seemed to maintain while still remaining small, friendly and very personable. From the moment you walking into their office at the airport you are greeted by people that love their job and make the nervous and expectant customers feel welcome. The office itself is very funky with Hawaiian artwork and photography along with great merchandise. The booking systems seem well thought out and at the end of the flight the staff where able to drop a video of the flight straight onto my phone via wifi in 20 seconds. Very impressive. The helicopter ride was epic as so much of Maui is inaccessible by road and is so beautiful. The helicopter itself seemed modern and the flight was smooth and the pilot gave us great cometary of the island history, topography and wildlife. Five stars.

Four of us went on a helicopter ride this morning. It was awesome. Our pilot, Kirk was great. He told us lots of interesting facts and showed us fantastic views of Maui that you can't see any other way than by air. He was great about flying to both sides to ensure we got photos. The music was fun and we were able to purchase the whole trip on video. This is expensive, but well worth it. Be sure to wear a dark shirt as they suggest. You can't bring a purse or bag. Be sure to pay the parking machine when you enter, parking tickets are expensive.

This was our families first time in a helicopter so that alone was very exciting and new for us. We had Troy as our pilot and he was friendly and informative and added excellent commentary about what we were seeing. He had a wonderful playlist as well and the music really adds to the experience. When he flew us close to some huge waterfalls, he had some very dramatic music playing, almost felt like we were in a movie with a cinematic score playing. It was fantastic to see West Maui and Molokai from a helicopter. It was interesting and also unbelievably beautiful. My jaw literally dropped when we saw some of the vistas. Our four kids all agreed that it had to be the coolest thing that they have ever done. We would all do it again in a heartbeat! Thanks for an epic experience!!

Air Maui was a great adventure and great way to see Maui and Molokai. The employees had great customer service, even helped us over the phone find the heliport. Our Captain was very friendly and made the trip smooth and entertaining. We had the open door ride, which was an experience! I sat in the back left and was beat by wind for the 45 minute ride to the point where my goggles were flying off my face. My hair was in a braid and it turned into a rats nest after the 125 mph winds. The couple in the front did not seem to experience any wind. So my advice is if you have long hair, don't sit in the back on the open door flight, choose the closed door flight, or tie your hair in a TIGHT bun. I would definitely go again!!

The staff at Air Maui were polished, professional, and personable. The helicopter ride was breathtaking, and the pilot was excellent. I just loved it and I'd do it again in a second. It's amazing how impressive the mountains and coast are from the air. Gorgeous! By far the best part of my trip!

This is the second time we have used Air Maui. They have been professional, friendly and thorough on both of our trips. I will use them again on the future. I personally have done the two 45 minute trips. They are both great. I personally liked the trip to West Maui and Molokai. Thanks Air Maui.

I was a bit skeptical about paying for a helicopter tour because I am a police helicopter pilot on the Mainland. They offered a single seat special for $100 so it was an offer I couldn't refuse. It's the only doors off tour in Maui and it's the best flight for aerial photography. There are no windows or doors obstructing your view. Even the inside seats were good and my camera took great pics. We were taken to places where they can only be experienced by the air or by boat. The air is a much faster way to get around also and we covered a lot of ground in 45 minutes. The staff and pilot were very knowledgeable and professional. Top notch staff and 5 star service. Will definitely do the complete island next time.

Took the tour over to Molokai. Such a fun experience! So beautiful and exciting. Worth every penny!

This company is fabulous and the tour was the highlight of our trip! For starters, it was very windy and cloudy the week we were visiting. The staff at Air Maui took the time to call us prior to the scheduled trip to suggest we change our flight from the afternoon to the morning. They cautioned us that the trip may be cancelled due to high winds in the afternoon. Next, upon arrival, we were greeted by the staff (Miko, Chris and Kat) who were exceptionally cheerful at 7:30 in the morning. These three ladies took customer service to the next level. They were genuinely concerned about every guest. The company is focused on safety and the flight was smooth and, in the words of my sons (both in their twenties), FANTASTIC! This is an experience not to be missed, and it should be done with Air Maui. I simply can't imagine a better company on the island.
