Overview
See the lush landscape of Maui and Molokai from the air during a scenic 'doors-off' helicopter flight from west Maui, a sightseeing experience that guarantees the best aerial photos. Hear live commentary from your pilot during the 45-minute open-air helicopter ride, which allows you to soak in unobstructed views of rain forest, mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Plus, you can choose between a morning or afternoon departure to suit any schedule.
What to Expect
Make your own way to the Kahului Airport in Maui at least 30 minutes before the scheduled departure for your morning or afternoon flight. 
 
Your pilot welcomes you aboard the helicopter, then provides a safety briefing and flight orientation. Soon, your helicopter soars above the coast of Maui and Molokai, and you can take in sweeping views of the majestic scenery, including tall mountains, deep ravines, isolated beaches, and remote waterfalls in the island's craggy interior.

Snap photos with your cell phone camera from the open-air cabin, getting clear shots without the interference of windows that cause glare or blurriness. As this is the only doors-off sightseeing flight by helicopter offered on Maui, it has become a popular activity, and the highlight of many vacations. 

The 45-minute ride returns to Kahului Airport where your tour ends. The time frame leaves ample time for additional activities in the day after a tour that provides a stunning perspective on this part of Hawaii.

Amazing First Time Experience!

What an incredible experience! It was surreal to see the landscape from above and have our pilot talk to us about the history of the sights we saw. My husband and I would definitely do this tour again!
