Things to do in Maui for Thanksgiving

If you are interested in flying with us to celebrate this holiday season, book now! A helicopter tour with Air Maui is a must if you are visiting the island, or if you live here on Maui. Families love our tours and they are a great way to spend time with your kids while they are off from school. Here is what some of our guests have to say about flying with us:

“The HIGHlight of the trip! The entire family (from ages 60 to 8) had the best time soaring over the rain forest terrain and seeing amazing views of waterfalls that you can only dream of ever seeing in person. The pilot adds fun music and takes video of your trip from multiple angles including inside the helicopter. Your family will be talking about this for years to come.” – 981phila

“We did a lot of tours on our vacation (snorkeling, whale watching, bike tour, Hana tour), and the family agreed that this stood out among all the others. We would definitely do another helicopter tour with Air Maui if we visit the island again.“ – organdj123

“Our 2nd time with AM, my parents first, and our girls (11 & 9) first time too! They all had a blast and loved our pilot, Cameron. He was awesome and lots of fun! My parents had been on another Helicopter tour on Maui with a company down the strip from AM and they said AM was WAY better and much more fun and enjoyable. We did the West Maui and Molokai trip this time around and it was fabulous. Next time we are doing it with the doors off! Can’t wait to fly with AM again!!! They are seriously awesome and worth every penny and you can’t beat the memories you will have!“ – Discover00850451993
