Once in a lifetime

August 14, 2017

We decided as a last minute decision to take a helicopter ride with Air Maui. We wanted to take a flight looking at West Maui and Molokai. Fortunately they were able to accommodate us but unfortunately the only flight they had was the doors off version. It seems counter intuitive to ride a helicopter with the doors off but I guess it is like driving a convertible car ... just at 2000 feet. First of all I'm not a fan of heights but had no trouble with this what so ever. I would definitely pay the extra $50 to get the front seats. It is an unobstructed view and is the only way to guarantee where you are going to sit. The back bench holds 4 people and the order of the seating is based on weight distribution. There is a good chance that you are not going to sit exactly where you want and with your family. The pictures that we took were amazing. There is not a small window to look out of from the side. You can literally look down if you choose to and there is no reflection off of the glass since there is no glass. You are wearing noise canceling headsets so I could not hear the rotors until I played back my video. Because you are out in the open you are provided goggles like when you are skiing. They are tinted so you don't have to worry about sun. Cameron narrated the whole trip and the video on the USB stick was perfect. The total flight was about 50 minutes and it seemed to go so fast. This is the only doors off flight that we saw looking at the other websites. Don't waste your time with a doors on flight. If you are going to do fly over Maui and Molokai, take the doors off flight. You definitely won't regret it. Enjoy.

It was extraordinary! I had experienced the regular chopper tour before it was great too; however, if you like adventure I highly recommend this trip. Our pilot was great and the music was awesome too! Highly recommend it!!!

Wondering if it's worth it?

August 14, 2017

It is!!! It was amazing. Thrilling worth every dollar. We got front seats, a great music track and a narration that made everyone smile. We had our trip rerouted and it was magnificent!!! It's not cheap but a memory of a lifetime.

Great ride around Haleakala and Hana!

August 14, 2017

We took the 45 minute flight around Haleakala and Hana with Jesse and it was great! Jesse did a great job of keeping us informed of where we were and what we were seeing without being overly chatty. My mother-in-law has limited mobility (can take a few steps, but mostly wheelchair bound) and she was able to get into the helicopter without too much trouble. She also has a portable oxygen concentrator that was not a problem on the helicopter. The option to buy the video is totally worth it. For $50 you get a USB stick with the entire video from your flight including the music and pilot commentary. It's literally a 45 minute video of your specific flight. Very nice trip and would definitely recommend them to everyone!

Spectacular Flight and Scenery

August 14, 2017

A truly must do to fully appreciate the majestic beauty of Maui and Molokai. Our pilot provided a great narration of what we were seeing, that I only fully appreciated after I bought the CD of our flight. Remember to bring enough cash ($50) to purchase the recording without having to use a credit card as the price is then ($64). By the way don't worry about taking photos during the flight as you can "screen print" any frame from the video for a high def photo. You will miss too much if you have your nose stuck in a camera.... just my 2 cents.

Enjoyed the Helicopter tour immensely. Spectacular views of Maui and Moloka'i waterfalls that we wouldn't have been able to see any other way.

We took the Maui-Molokai flight with Air Maui. It was so amazing to see the canyons and waterfalls that are only accessible by air. Our pilot's knowledge of the islands enriched the experience.

We took the West Maui Molokai fight, our pilot Troy was fabulous!!!! The views were breathtaking, couldn't ask for a better tour. The staff were kind and the preflight briefing was extraordinary. I would recommend the Air Maui helicopter tour to anyone!! Two thumbs up!
