What You Can Expect
Upon lifting off from the heliport pad, hear your pilot begin narrating the flight through convenient two-way headsets, and minutes later you’ll be soaring above waterfalls as you approach the East Maui rainforest. Whir high above valleys and hidden pools that are only accessible by air, and get a sense for how much of the island is completely undeveloped.
After flying above bays off the Hana coastline and watching waterfalls spill towards the sea, you’ll gradually climb high up the eastern flank of Haleakala volcano. With a summit of just over 10,000 feet, this mountain is one of the world’s largest and tallest dormant volcanoes, and the colorful landscape of cinder cones and trails is stunning when viewed from the air.
Once back on the ground at Kahului heliport, you can buy a DVD of the flight for a separate, additional charge, which is backed by tropical Hawaiian music and narration from on board the trip.
We were detoured due to cloud cover to the West Maui/Molokai tour, but that was no hardship! Beautiful tour, and our pilot Mike was a great guide! Highly recommended!
I loved this trip! The pilot, Mike, was very personable and informitable. The helicopter tour was the highlight of my trip. Wish the day had been clearer and a little less windy by that's the luck of the draw...
This was a great experience. We saw so much we would have never seen otherwise. The pilot was super nice, and had a great playlist. Worth the money for sure.
It is the only way to see the magnificent coastline and waterfalls of this island. The pilots commentary and knowledge of Maui was very informative. Glad we did the trip.
This was my first helicopter ride. I had a great time.
The staff and our pilot, Troy, were super. Very professional and made the family feel safe and comfortable with the whole experience. It was run very efficiently and on-time. Clean offices and helicopter. Great tour for our family.
Maui Air was very good about calling in a timely manner to reschedule due to the weather, etc.

Crater was clouded over so we were offered an alternate ride to Molakai to see the cliffs and waterfalls. Nice but would have liked to see 7 pools and crater instead.

Because of weather, the tour was changed...drastically. The pilot didn't get into interesting areas, he piloted so fast pictures couldn't be taken, not all sides of the helicopter saw the same views. There was barely any narration. I've taken this tour before, and it was great. I don't know how they dropped the ball on this day.
