Fly deep inside the West Maui Mountains where there aren’t even any trails, and gaze upon the colorful cinder cones of Haleakala Crater.

Your Maui complete island helicopter tour begins at Kahului Heliport, where you board a luxurious, air-conditioned helicopter with comfortable leather seats. Your professional tour guide and expert pilot talks to you through your headset, before lifting off and immediately soaring over fields of waving green sugar.

Over the course of this helicopter tour, many of Maui’s most jaw-dropping spectacles emerge in front of the window, from the verdant valleys of the West Maui Mountains to inside Haleakala Crater. Buzz above the Hana coast and the famous Road to Hana, and see many more waterfalls and crystalline pools than you would from the seat of your car.

After cruising above the lunar landscape of Haleakala volcano, your pilot turns the helicopter towards the rugged West Maui Mountains. Hear the geology, history, and lore behind these sacred, forested ridgelines, and emerge at the fabled “Wall of Tears” that drips with dozens of falls.

While flying above the West Maui coast, get aerial views of neighboring Molokai and the legendary, 4,000 ft. sea cliffs, and in winter it’s sometimes even possible to spot Humpback whales from the sky.

Back on land at Kahului Heliport, you can purchase a souvenir a USB containing footage of your flight, complete with the pilot’s expert narration and Hawaiian music in the background.

So so 60 minute island tour
Anthony_G
, Aug 2022
Okay tour, pilot was more taxi driver than tour guide. Didn’t get to see Haleakala because of weather. Molokai was interesting. Sis people on plane. Teenage boy next to me had his knees jammed behind seat. I had to sit sideways, cram my daughter to let him have some leg room. Views were good, but obstructed. Will probably do doors off flight next time

When I asked my two kids what was the top experience while visiting Hawaii, they both said "Helicopter Tour". The competing experiences were, snorkeling with the mantas and watching Lava on the Big Island, Surfing Waikiki, and Biking/Hiking Haliakala and some amazing dives on Both Maui and the Big Island.

EXCITING AND AMAZING EXPERIENCE.

Being afraid, but. having a calm, experienced, mild mannered pilot like Dylan Dacus to put you at ease. Dylan made us feel very safe and comfortable. His demeanor was calming and relaxing. Spectacular views you will not get to see any other way other than helicopter. Could not figure out how to turn volume down headphones. Was a bit loud for some. Great experience. Highly recommend it.

Not complete island tour
Judith_V
, Dec 2021
Was hoping to see more of the Island, but what we saw was wonderful. Was not the complete island tour we expected.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
I apologize you didn't get the tour you expected. Our Complete Island flight will cover the highlights here on Maui in areas you cannot drive to or access on your own (weather depending of course). Near impossible to cover every inch of the island in an hour but our pilots do try their best to show the most requested areas on this tour.

Paid for our trip, was given a scheduled time and then told we missed the trip (2 hrs earlier than our reservation stated) and that there was no refund and nothing they would do. Super disappointing and frustrating wedding anniversary adventure.
