What You Can Expect

East Maui 45-minute Helicopter Tour over Haleakala Crater

East Maui Special 45-minute Helicopter Tour

Maui helicopter tours meet at the easy to locate Kahului Heliport. Take to the air and enjoy Maui's diverse landscape of dormant volcanoes, rugged lava flows, lush tropical rainforests and deep valleys filled with cascading waterfalls. Maui helicopter rides are perfect because around 75% of Maui is inaccessible on the ground due to the extreme terrain and rainforests.

Climb onboard your luxury, air-conditioned A-star helicopter. Each helicopter has six forward-facing seats providing each passenger unobstructed 180-degree views. Recline on leather seats, listen to the stereo CD music and hear descriptive narration from your friendly, professional pilot.

The multi-vision video system records all the great sites of your tour, including the pilot narration set to background music. After the flight, you may purchase a DVD or VHS version of your flight for an additional charge.

Enjoy enchanting waterfalls and the awe-inspiring Haleakala Crater, Maui's own sleeping volcano with a summit extending into the heavens more than 10,000 feet (3050 meters) and admire the tropical Hana Rainforest before Maui helicopter tours return to the Kahului Heliport.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

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...

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2013

Wonderful experience!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2012

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.

4 star rating: Recommended May 2015

This was my first helicopter ride. I had a great time.

4 star rating: Recommended February 2015

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.

4 star rating: Recommended January 2011

Maui Air was very good about calling in a timely manner to reschedule due to the weather, etc.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2012

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.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this October 2014

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.
