West Maui and Molokai Exclusive 45-Minute Helicopter Tour

West Maui and Molokai Exclusive 45 Minute Helicopter Tour

There’s no better way to see Hawaii than from the seat of a helicopter, since most of the valleys, ridgelines, and waterfalls can only be viewed from the air. On this 45-minute helicopter tour of the West Maui Mountains and Molokai, you’ll be instantly transported from Kahului Heliport to the heart of the ancient Hawaii, where it’s said that the bones of ancient chiefs are still secretly buried in these valleys.

Hover above ridgelines carved by 1.5 million years of wind and rain erosion, where mists cling to the bright green leaves of indigenous trees and ferns.

Staring out the window of the A-star helicopter—which has six, forward-facing seats—watch as dozens of cascading waterfalls carve rivulets down the cliffs. After circling the center of the West Maui Mountains, this Maui helicopter tour continues to Molokai for a flight past the world’s tallest sea cliffs, which dramatically plunge nearly 4,000 feet to waves crashing on the coast.

Throughout this helicopter tour of Maui, your expert pilot provides narration on history, geology, and wildlife, and DVD’s of the entire experience can be purchased at the end of the flight.

See sights that are only accessible by air. Everyone associated with the company was great to us.

Great experience!!! The views were awesome with the waterfalls. Everyone at the helicopter company was friendly and professional. I felt safe in their helicopter when I found out they have a perfect safety record.

Everyone ought to take this tour! Our pilot, Mike, was very amenable and made all passengers 6 total feel that he was genuinely excited to help us see the spectacular sights. Mike was very knowledgeable about the various aspects and factoids regarding the islands. No pun intended...the 45 minutes flew by. I was very sad to realize we were headed back to the landing pad.

Picked up by shuttle to West Maui airport for helicopter tour. Had a brief safety lesson before embarking with about 4 others. The helicopter's pilot gave us all earphones to block the noise and gave us all information on the waterfalls, history of the volcanic activity and even a trip over to the island of Molokai. Very happy with his tour and it was the highlight of my trip.

It was amazing. Our pilot Janette was fantastic and so knowledgeable and she put everyone at ease with her flying abilities. Would do it again in a heart beat.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This was a fantastic way to see some spectacular scenery that we could not have experienced any other way. Pilot was great: told us some salient points but did not keep blabbering on, like some tour guides ( some guides just never shut up, and you can't enjoy what you're looking at).

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

We had a fantastic time on our Helicopter Tour. The views were spectacular and our pilot was awesome.
