I have been afraid of heights my whole life and when confronting the fear by choosing Air Maui to take a tour of the islands, I was terrified. However, I knew that if I were to pick anyone to fly me, they would be at the top of my list. They have been in business for nearly 25 years now and have had 0 ACCIDENTS EVER. After taking off I soon discovered just how amazingly steady their flying was and I had absolutely no fright while flying.

We booked the West Maui and Molokai trip and had a great experience. The ground team was helpful, funny, and personable. I found that a lot of the people who work for Air Maui have been there for several years and it shows. Our pilot Mike looked young and joked about it but was all business once we got in the air. There were 5 in our group so we had the entire helicopter to ourselves which made for a good ride. This was probably the highlight to an activity filled trip and would recommend taking a tour with them.

The ride on Air Maui was one of the highlights of our trip. So worth it to buy the photo and video of the ride. It was beautiful to watch the scenery again and relive the great time that we had.

My husband and I were on our belated honeymoon in Maui and decided to do the helicopter tour to see more of the island and because it was so highly rated. We booked the full island tour which included Haleakala Crater but because there was cloud coverage they said it would be better to do the tour of west Maui and Molokai but ultimately the choice was up to us and the other family doing the tour with us. I was a little disappointed at first, but everything we saw was absolutely breathtaking and I was ultimately happy they gave us the option for better visibility. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful. The pilot (her name is escaping me at this moment) was wonderful. She made sure to turn around and make sure both sides of the helicopter could see what was going on and did a great job of explaining what everything was. I'm sure it was a bit more difficult to see things if you had been placed in the middle of the back row (there are 2 seats next to the pilot and 4 seats in a row just behind that.) My husband and I were placed in front and had a great view but they really did try to make sure everyone got a chance to see everything and take pictures. She played music in our headset in-between her telling us everything we were seeing which I thought was a nice addition. If you can afford it, this was the perfect way to see the island, and it gave us a chance to see things that would otherwise be impossible to see without doing the helicopter tour.

I had been recommended this company by a friend and we had not booked before we left Australia but managed to book a tour for one afternoon. My Mum was a bit anxious but the staff was great and all very professional and the pilot was great. I was disappointed that the clouds were covering the Volcanic craters and had been all day so they had not been able to do the full island tour all day and they offered us a part island tour and then tour of Molokai instead but said we could rebook or cancel and refund no problem. We decided to go ahead and it was wonderful. The mountains the views the beaches, places you would never see otherwise and they are unable to be accessed by road or foot. Such contrasts between the different sides of the island and so amazing to see.

My fiancé and I celebrated our engagement with an Air Maui tour of West Maui and Molokai in May 2015. Everyone on the Air Maui staff was warm and welcoming as both of us were slightly hesitant with our first helicopter ride. Air Maui has a perfect safety record. The helicopter ride was excellent. Our pilot, Janette, was very informative and made sure to allow everyone a view of the landscape and landmarks which allowed excellent photo opportunities. Would highly recommend this tour as a MUST DO to anyone visiting Maui.

First off, let me say I was scared to Death when my husband mentioned that he wanted to take a helicopter tour when we took our trip to Hawaii. Like, I seriously did not want to do it! A few weeks went by, other activities were booked, no mention of helicopter tours were ever brought up...I thought I was in the clear. Our year long wait to board the plane to our Hawaii trip finally arrived, a few days in Hawaii had come and gone, and then one morning at breakfast the husband sneaks off on the phone. I'm thinking maybe he's booking a spa treatment for me and our girls. He returns with a grin but doesn't mention a thing. So I go along with it. Then on our way back to the resort he hands me the phone... "Your Air Maui tour has been booked". My eyes wanted to pop out of my head, my heart was leaping out of my chest...but I had to keep it under wraps as this was obviously a surprise for the girls too! Oh my gosh… we are doing what?!?!? I kept repeating in my head. So, as you have read, the fear of getting into a helicopter was a mind boggling, heart attack waiting to happen for me. But it truly was the BEST activity we did the whole entire time we were there. And trust me, I swear we did it all, snorkeling, waterfall hikes, shopping, Luau's, etc... but for me, this West Maui/Molokai tour was amazing. It wasn't 10 minutes into air and I had tears in my eyes... and not out of fear but of pure joy!!! And those tears of joy were on and off during the 60 minute tour. The views were amazing, the smiles on my family's face as we soared above and below waterfalls, cliffs and valleys, were amazing!!! I seriously would do this again. Air Maui's staff was top notch from the very beginning. Any questions I had, they answered and put my fears to ease. The brief safety orientation before you board the helicopter was well thought through. Our helicopter tour guide was super awesome too. I highly recommend this tour with Air Maui. Like my husband told me from the beginning, "You can't go to Hawaii and not go on a helicopter tour!"

From the moment I called Air Maui and had Cat help me out & walk me through the process, I knew I was in good hands and made the right choice. Ground staff was thorough but also made it fun! Super cool pilot Troy took us into some beautiful spots in the West Maui Mtns and on Molokai! His playlist was awesome, too!!!! GREAT JOB AIR MAUI!!! If you are a solo traveler like I am check inquire about single seat deals - a huge savings.

Great tour of the entire island. No replacement for this tour. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the island.
