WONDERFUL + GRACIOUS!

This tour was for my Dad and he had a WONDERFUL time. He's not very good with English, but the staff was extremely kind and gracious. They took great care of him and he had the time of his life!

Absolutely Stunning Scenery & Friendly Crew

September 23, 2015

The Air Maui West Island/Molokai tour was the first thing we did during our Maui vacation and we were not disappointed! The staff were friendly and helpful, our pilot was engaging and knowledgeable, and the sights we saw from the air (especially the sea cliffs of Molokai) were breathtaking. Thanks Air Maui! We will be back!

Best Helicopter Tour Value!!

September 23, 2015

If I could give this place ten stars I would. From the moment we checked in, to learning about the safety, to boarding the helicopter was all perfect too. The staff was so nice and wanted to know where we were from and what had us in Maui. Very friendly. But once we were on the aircraft and met Jeanette our pilot, it was a dream. First, she is a native Hawaiian. Who better to tell you about the Island? But it was how she described things. The friend I was with had never been on a helicopter before. I think after the first five minutes she forgot she was on one. Jeanette told stories. Told us to look left or look right and called all of us by name!! She made sure if it was something that was really worth seeing that everyone in the helicopter got a good look. It was just amazing! The first large waterfall that we went to was in the opening scene of the first Jurassic Park movie. Well, it was pretty on film, but it was absolutely breathtaking for real. So much so, I was overwhelmed to the point of tears. It was literally the most beautiful sight I had ever seen. There were places that the helicopter took us that you can't get to any other way. Jeanette was a pure professional. Explaining history and culture along with pointing out beauty. If you are contemplating a helicopter tour, or just think "oh, it's too much money" or it's just more of the same thing, you are going to cheat yourself. It was the ride of a lifetime and.... then I could buy a recorded thumb drive of our actual flight, with us in it and Jeanette talking. It wasn't pre-recorded, it was our actual flight! Take the plunge, take this flight from this company. Your only regret will be if you don't do it.

I was terrified and nervous before getting on the helicopter. Why? Because I’m afraid of planes and heights... and also get claustrophobic sometimes. My BF wanted us to go so we tried it out... I literally put my faith in Janette, the pilot. She did an excellent job and explained every detail of our locations, where we were going and pointing out many things on the island. It was a bit scary when we got towards the waterfall but it was so beautiful! They filmed one of the scenes from Jurassic park so you should def check it out if you come to Maui!

WOW!

September 22, 2015

My husband and I were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary, and we could not have celebrated it any better than experiencing your amazing helicopter tour. It was our 1st trip to Maui and it was the best way to see the island. Janice (I think I have the name right) was our pilot. She was so informative, friendly and experienced. We felt totally safe and enjoyed every moment. The office staff were great. We had a problem picking up our rental car and were going to be very late. They were very calming and accommodating on the phone, and put us totally at ease. We highly recommend Air Maui.

Summary: do it! Especially if you don't have motion sickness issues. Tip: don't follow GPS to the heliport. You need to get to Haleakala highway (37) from highway 36. Call into Air Maui when you get around the airport so they can direct you. I don't have any other helicopter experiences to compare, but I will say that Air Maui is completely recommendable. Their chopper looked great inside out. The pilot (Dwayne?) was terrific - funny, personable without seeming like he was trying too hard. I took the West Maui tour. There isn't any skydiving yet in Maui, so this was the thing I wanted to try. For those of you who haven't been in a helicopter, you gotta do it. There's no build up, taxiing to a runway - the second you lift off things are interesting. The most interesting parts are when you hover, change altitude, or pivot inside the chopper. You'll see waterfalls that shame anything on the Road to Hana. You'll fly close enough to see details, but far enough to see the scale of what you're doing. The other staff (Pat & Steven) were patient, very nice, and relaxed. They make it easy to hand over your money. :) I took advantage of a single seat special for the 45 minute west Maui tour. I'd gladly pay for the 60 minute full island tour next time. For me, this activity was my most enjoyable - better than the luau, road to Hana, or the Haleakala sunrise (which we missed bc of clouds).

Amazing flight and service

September 20, 2015

My Wife and I were visiting Hawaii and scheduled a stay on Maui. We decided since we had a car rented there it would be awesome to view Maui from the Air. After looking at many different Helicopter tours we decided on Air Maui. Our decision was based on types of tours, time in the air vs cost and a good look at the company. We were not disappointed at all, their staff is awesome from scheduling and follow up to a great pilot and aircraft. We were scheduled originally for an afternoon flight and the weather had been tricky for the past couple days. Air Maui called us a day before and offered us a morning flight so we could see more. We accepted and they were so right when we came back from our flight you could see the clouds surrounding the entire area we just were. The company also offers a complete video of your flight, yes, your actual flight. There are many cameras on the aircraft and you get complete narration as well in the audio. When we arrived at home we were able to view the video with friends and family. It was amazing quality and you could even see us in the aircraft. Thank you Air Maui for making every flight the best it can be.
