This tour was fantastic! It was the most amazing aerial tour I have ever had. The pilot was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited. All of the staff were very courteous and supportive.

Finding the perfect gift is something I always struggle with. While researching things to do for our recent Maui trip, I knew that a helicopter ride around the island would be a gift to remember and fitting for our 5th anniversary. Air Maui was awesome! The front desk staff was super friendly and our pilot/tour guide, Dylan, was so cool. He really knows his stuff. And I loved the background music he played in between his dialogue. They offer a DVD of your actual flight and narration for purchase, but we passed and just purchased a souvenir photo of the two of us in front of the helicopter. Maui is a gorgeous island...lush hillsides, breathtaking waterfalls and bright blue coastal waters. It's also home to the 3rd largest volcano in Hawaii...East Maui Volcano better known as Haleakala.

My daughter (age 25) and I went on the Maui-Molokai helicopter tour. It was spectacular. When returning home from a two week three island vacation people have asked us about our favorite moments and we always say 'the helicopter ride in Maui'. From the reservation to the day of the flight, Air Maui was professional, well run and very easy to work with. We chose the 45 minute ride and it was plenty of time. Remember- you are going 150 miles per hour so you cover quite a bit of ground in a short period of time. Plus, I believe we were actually gone at least an hour as it was a beautiful, clear early morning and our wonderful pilot told us how rare this was. Our pilot (I believe his name was Troy) was just great. He had amazing music that was designed to make your experience even better and he spoke of the history of Maui as well as what we were actually seeing. The ride was smooth and not the least bit frightening (and I am afraid of heights). The cabin was open with plenty of viewing area. We were fortunate to sit up front and it gave us the best view of the falls, the land, and the ocean. He hovered close to the waterfalls and with the music playing it was so dramatic. Thank you Air Maui for a great memory!

Worth every cent. Such an amazing ride. Ground staff and pilot Dylan were friendly, made us feel safe and comfortable. Throughout the ride he was very informative about the islands and their history. Made an obvious effort to rotate the helicopter to allow optimal viewing to all passengers. Played a great collection of music along the trip too! Will definitely be flying with Air Maui again in the future!

Absolutely the best value of our excursions on Maui. Always thought that helicopter excursions were a rip-off, but far as Air Maui goes, nothing could be further from the truth. Truly was amazing. The flight was smooth (they use the ASTAR helicopter), with great views for all passengers. Many places on Maui and Molokai simply cannot be seen other than by air.

We had an amazing time, Captain Troy was very knowledgeable and fun to ride with. The views were just breath taking. The captain's skilled maneuvering paired with the amazing terrain made for a thrilling ride. Thank you for making our anniversary trip unforgettable.

Great trip. Our pilot was great. He accommodated my wife by taking it easy and keeping the trip smooth to ease her fear of flying. Views were incredible. Just an amazing experience to fly along the shores, the cliffs, through the valleys, and to hover next to incredible waterfalls. Even if you are a seasoned flyer or adventurer, I highly recommend a trip and definitely recommend Air Maui.

If you go to Maui and you don't take this tour you are missing out on a great experience. My wife and I went to Maui for the holidays and to escape Los Angeles. We booked our Air Maui trip as our 1st "to do" and our pilot was Troy. Great guy, very easy going and full of knowledge. Simply put…the flight with Troy was amazing! We saw parts of the island we would have never seen by car, bike or hike. This is a must do.

The staff at Air Maui is the best. Totally professional and keep safety first. Our pilot was full of knowledge and extremely friendly. Always wanted to make sure everyone had their questions answered. Make sure to go to Air Maui if you are considering this as your first helicopter adventure, it was mine and the team at Air Maui really made it enjoyable.

We were a little hesitant to take the tour due to expense. We signed up for the 45 minute west Maui tour/Molokai and it was AMAZING! Our pilot was very informative and funny! The scenery was breathtaking and we were able to see places that we would have never seen on land. Waterfalls and Sea Cliffs were the highlights. Since we visited during whale season, we could also see whales in the ocean as we flew over the water. There were six of us on the helicopter which gave everyone a great seat and view. We took the AM flight leaving at 9:00, which was perfect. Not too early and not too late! Wear the dark clothes to avoid reflection in the pics. Also, if you are staying in West Maui, it takes about an hour to get to the Heliport so plan for that in your arrangements. Overall, my favorite thing we did on our vacation!
