What an incredible experience!

January 27, 2016

I was reluctant at first because of price but it was a far better experience than I expected. We saw a pod of dolphins, over a dozen whales and some of the most breathtaking views. I wish I had a professional camera but it still wouldn't have been good enough. Our pilot Dave was very knowledgeable of all the landmarks and made it a trip to always remember.

Soaring to new heights

January 23, 2016

Epic! My wife and I decided on Air Maui to take us on our first ever helicopter tour and we wanted Molokai to be our first experience. We had to reschedule our original reservation two days later than planned due to high winds. We arrived for our 8:45a.m. flight just before the required check-in time of 8:15a.m. The Air Maui building is located at the end of the heliport and is accessed from a separate road from the main Kahului airport building. There is a pay parking lot on site and the ticket machine is at the entrance to the lot. Pay at the machine before proceeding to the Air Maui building at the end of the lot. We were welcomed immediately by a friendly staff upon entering and were briefed about our upcoming flight tour. After viewing a short safety video, we were ushered out to the helicopter. We were positioned next to Dylan, our pilot, in the front row. Dylan was great and provided commentary and interesting facts and stories along the way. At times I had difficulty hearing Dylan even with sound coming through headphones, but didn't detract from my experience in any way. The scenery was too spectacular. My favourite moment of our trip was flying through the lush valleys of Molokai before thrusting ourselves out and over the tallest sea cliffs in the world, watching waterfalls descend thousands of feet to the sea below. Dylan hovered, pivoted and turned slowly in a complete three-sixty, allowing all passengers to take in the stunning views of waterfalls, rainbows and even a manta ray, a giant sea turtle and several whales surfacing. Helicopter travel opens up possibilities for viewing places in the world that would simply be impossible by any other means and this is definitely the way to experience the stunning scenery of Molokai. The Air Maui staff were friendly, Dylan was a great pilot, and I'm glad we chose Air Maui's tour of West Maui and Molokai as our first helicopter tour experience. A few tips: 1. Book your excursion early. That way if there are weather issues on your scheduled date, you can still re-book for later in your vacation 2. Wearing dark clothing in the helicopter = better photos (less reflection) 3. Arrive early for check-in. Although they have to distribute weight evenly throughout the rotorcraft, we were the first two people to arrive and were sat next to the pilot in the front row. That being said, I really don't think there's a bad seat.

West Maui and Molokai

January 17, 2016

Great time a must do in Maui. We had a blast flying over the hills of Maui and seeing the mammoth waterfalls of Molokai. The experience is unforgettable and is the only real way to see the beauty of Molokai.

It was a flight of a lifetime. We went through a round rainbow for my wife's 40th Birthday. What else could anybody ask for? It was unbelievable. Thanks for a great Birthday for my wife.

Awesome trip!

From start to finish everyone at Air Maui was so personable and helpful that it made the entire experience perfect. We took the flight over West Maui and Molokai and it was absolutely beautiful. The pilot Cameron explained all the sites along the way exploring valleys and waterfalls and cliffs and so many wonderful sites. He even got us close enough to the water to see the turtles :). I researched all the companies and am so glad that I picked this one. It could not have been any better. Exceeded my expectations. :)

Air Maui is the best and safest record!

January 13, 2016

Air Maui has a perfect safety record, and uses the ASTAR helicopter. Capt. Dave was our pilot and has been with Air Maui 21 yrs. Great and safe ride through the craters/mountains/canyons of West Maui & Molokai. Very smooth ride, saw lots of whales, also. Highly recommend Air Maui and make sure you buy the thumb drive video of your flight, which shows all you went through!!

Awesome experience

January 13, 2016

Was a bit nervous as I had never been in a helicopter before. The pilot was terrific! We had an opportunity to see parts of the islands we would not have otherwise seen. Highly recommend! Worth the price. For benefit of other passengers please wear dark colors. Glare is awful if you wear light colors.
