Your tour begins at the Kahului Heliport 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time. Meet your pilot as you board the 6-seater helicopter and take off on your 75-minute ride.

Fly over the cliffs of West Maui and the Pailolo Channel to the island of Molokai. Take in the views of the remote sea cliffs, rain forests, and waterfalls before landing at a private oceanfront location on Maui’s North Shore to enjoy the scenery from the ground. When you’re ready, hop back in the helicopter for a ride over the West Maui Mountains back to the heliport.

A recording of your trip can be purchased when you land.

Wonderful way to see the island!

This was an excellent experience and the pilot was exceptional. Flying through the crater and around the waterfalls was exhilarating and I highly recommend it!

Wasted time at the Oceanfront landing! Really did not spend nearly the time in the air we thought we would get. Also a lot of time over water with nothing to see..except water. Bought the video for $50 cash and it doesn't work. The lady...More

I apologize for the experience you had flying with us and the disappointment in the tour. Our Oceanfront landing tour is about a 45-50 minute flight with 25 minutes or so at the private landing location. A longer flight time would have been to do...More

Turned out everyone was right—the helicopter ride was a thrill

This was my first helicopter ride and I had low expectations. From the beginning, I was blown away. As a hiker I'm used to seeing things from hundreds of feet and when we take commercial air, we are used to seeing land from 10,000 feet...More

You sure got it! Views here on the islands via helicopter are pretty amazing and hard to see otherwise! I will be sure to let your pilot Troy and dispatcher Mino'aka know how much you appreciated their customer service and time. Aloha!
