This tour was fantastic! We flew with Pilot/Captain Kirk. From start to finish we felt safe, as the employees show you a safety video, then walk you out to the helicopter in a single file line and call you one by one to show you your seat assignment. Pilot Kirk was very professional and highly personable. From the moment we entered the helicopter he explained when we would be leaving, as there was a bit of air traffic that day. Then once up in the air he explained everything that we were seeing and flying over, and included a few bits of Hawaiian history. Flying over Molokai was outrageous. The lush valleys were awe inspiring, but the waterfalls were insanely gorgeous. The description of this tour says that you will see waterfalls that are inaccessible by land and they do not exaggerate! We actually flew into the deepest part of the volcano (lush and green--unlike the desert-like Haleakala), and seeing those ridges and peaks up close was a truly amazing sight.

The hangar was very modern and clean. The woman who checked me in was very friendly, all of the staff members were very personable and professional. This truly was an amazing experience. This trip cost about $1000 for a family of 4. They do have a video of your flight that you can purchase after you land. It is narrated by your pilot and probably has all the awesome music that was played during your flight. I generally hate sales pitches, but this one wasn't painful. They showed us our pictures and a sample of the video, but weren't pushy at all. The one thing that I didn't like and felt was tacky was the $5 parking fee. Since people are paying a MINIMUM of $250 per person for this experience I feel the helicopter company could provide us with a complimentary voucher. All in all, this was a great experience. If your budget allows for it you should splurge and treat yourself to this amazing journey.

Thank you for the wonderful and thorough review! Kirk is an excellent pilot and tour guide. As for the parking I totally agree but unfortunately it is part of the state parking policies (like parking at the airport). We pay monthly as well and it by individual car so cannot provide a voucher. This is for all companies at the heliport. I hope you have a wonderful time here in the islands!

The tour company made the experience very easy. The pilot, Captain Kirk, provided informative and entertaining narratives. The views were breathtaking and could be seen from both sides of the helicopter. Safety was the main concern and each guest is treated very well. This tour is well worth the time and money and this company is is very well-respected.

Our pilot Cameron was so engaged, remembering everyone's name and addressing interesting narration to each person by name at least once (felt more engaging, and I'm sure our 9 year olds dug that). The music he picked was awesome and complimentary, his knowledge was great and appreciated. The tour itself was insanely awesome. 45 minutes was a good amount of time for us with the young kids, and worth every penny. It was raining which only increased the waterfalls we saw. I highly recommend the tour and Air Maui - great booking and flight experience from beginning to end.

We were disappointed with Air Maui Tours after an excellent helicopter tour on Oahu with another company 2 days prior. 4 grown adults were very tightly packed in the back seat with a young newlywed couple packed onto a front seat next to the pilot. We had very little room to turn to get photos or be comfortable. We were on the right side of the helicopter behind the pilot & with most of the flight being counter clockwise especially around West Maui, we saw very little looking over the other adults on the left. The door on the left was mostly clear of obstacles but the right door had a black bar & vent on the glass that obstructed views along with a fire extinguisher next to the door that reflected off the window when taking any pictures. When we returned we politely expressed our disappointment as this was a gift to my wife for our 25th wedding anniversary. I was told seating is not based on special occasions. We were not offered a 2nd flight or a refund. We were only offered a thumb drive video of the flight to see what we missed after we purchased a photo for $25. Very poor customer service when we expressed our disappointment.

I am sorry to hear you were disappointed in the tour. Seating is done by a weight and balance and we do try to stress to all that we need accurate body weights when booking to ensure everyone is comfortable and can take photos. The helicopter cabin is very small. All pilots are told to do a few turns throughout the flight to be sure that both sides get a chance to take photos and get a good view. I will be sure to share this with our chief pilot to remind them of this. Thank you for the feedback.

this is a review solely for the staff working. We drove 1 hour to get to our helicopter reservation only to be turned away literally 2 mins after I paid. They cited bad weather which I completely understand. My bad review is based on the staff for not reaching out to us to inform us of this. Wasted an entire two hours round trip driving on our vacation. They did not even offer to refund the parking we paid 5 mins prior as well. I’m sure it’s a fantastic tour….. if you actually get to go on. Not happy at all. Complete waste of a morning.

I do apologize for the last minute cancellation but the weather here in the islands can change very quickly and can be hard to predict in advance. Many days we go flight by flight hour by hour because from one hour to the next it can change dramatically. I am sure you and many others were on their way or already checked in and worst case this can happen where we have to cancel last minute. In the end we will not take you on a flight if the weather is unsafe to fly in or not going to be worth the price you paid. I am sorry you felt time was wasted on vacation which I completely understand. In the end we are all human and our staff do try their best to handle rescheduling and cancellations the best they can considering we typically accommodate on average 100+ people a day.

I started off my trip with this tour and it was the highlight of my trip. Captain Cameron did a great job presenting amazing views of Maui and I felt safe about 99.9% of the time. I did the door-on version and the helicopter had plenty and room. The staff was also very friendly during check-in.

This tour was amazing and breathtaking. Our native Hawaiian pilot, Brodi was great, with in depth naration and flying skills that made the trip. A bit more time was spent over Molokai then West Maui, but it was worth it. The Sea cliffs and valleys of Molokai were the most beautiful landscape I have ever seen. I've been on a couple other helicopter tours in Hawaii, and this was by far the best visually.

This was one of the most exhilarating experiences I've had! We did the 45 min tour of West Maui and Molokai with pilot Nathan. He was great at keeping us entertained with stories as we flew and letting us know about the areas he was showing us. Loved the music on his playlist too! Anytime there was something extra special to look at, he would take a couple mins to move the helicopter so all passengers could get a fantastic view. Molokai was stunning, the cliffs and waterfalls were spectacular - everyone had a great time!

Pilot Jim is a gem! He was, first and foremost, a real pro! He was also funny, fun, safety oriented, and reassuring to those with a bit of fear. Purchased the extra video / picture package and it captured the tour perfectly, much better than any pictures we took during the flight. Highly recommend this tour!!!!!

This helicopter ride was the highlight of my trip to Maui! No explanation or pictures could do it justice. Our pilot was friendly and informative, and he took us to see some awesome things that I’ll never forget (waterfalls, cliffs, a coral reef, etc.). Going on a helicopter ride isn’t cheap but it’s definitely worth the money. One thing to note - my boyfriend gets motion sickness easily and he got sick right when we took off. So if you get motion sickness easily, I would take Dramamine or maybe skip this excursion. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend!
