On this phenomenal East Maui helicopter tour, soar high above the cinder cones of Haleakala Crater, and see hidden waterfalls, valleys, and bays on the rugged East Maui coastline. Much of Maui is inaccessible and only visible by air, and from flying high above bamboo forests to buzzing the 10,000 ft. summit, this is a Maui helicopter tour you’ll definitely never forget.
  • 45-minute helicopter tour over East Maui
  • Soar above the Hana rainforest and Haleakala crater
  • Enjoy breathtaking bird's eye views of Maui
  • Excellent narration provides background to all sights
  • Learn about the fascinating history of Maui from an expert personal guide
Your East Maui and Haleakala helicopter tour begins at Kahului Heliport, where you’ll buckle up inside an A-star helicopter with six forward-facing seats. Every passenger in these air conditioned helicopters has 180 degree views, and the leather seats make a comfortable perch for exploring the island by air.

Upon lifting off from the heliport pad, hear your pilot begin narrating the flight, 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 USB containing footage of the flight for a separate, additional charge, which is backed by tropical Hawaiian music and narration from on board the trip.

It was my wife’s first time in a helicopter and it won’t be her last. Captain Cameron was as smooth as buttermilk with his flying and onboard commentary. They had to reroute us due to excessive cloud cover by Hana and Haleakala. Flying over to Molokai and the west side of Maui instead was well worth it!

I am scared of heights and have never been on a helicopter but the pricing for two people made it impossible to pass on. The facilities on the outside are a huge contrast to the modern interior. The staff was very welcoming and always addressed my partner and I by name. After watching a painless security video we were asked if it was our first time. The staff walked us outside and took a photo of us in front of the helicopter. Once inside we were strapped in and our pilot Dylan was friendly and super calm. His tone and attitude reminded me of the sea turtle Crush from Finding Nemo. He had his own music playing throughout the flight in our headphones as he narrated at a few points. Originally I thought the soundtrack bit would have been distracting but it was perfect. The sights were breathtaking but that aside the staff and our pilot made it an easy experience. At the end our photos were on display and easy to purchase along with the whole flight which was recorded and loaded to a flash drive. I appreciated that this was mentioned and displayed at the end rather than product dumping in the beginning. The prices were very reasonable. Thank you all for making this experience one my partner and I will never forget.

We had a wonderful, smooth flight with some amazing views of Haleakala and the Maui rain forests and many waterfalls. Captain Kirk was a fun, experienced pilot who gave us a great ride, along with a lot of information on what we were seeing.

Aloha! My husband and I are so glad that we experienced this once in a life-time opportunity. Even though I was the one who booked the trip, I was a little apprehensive when we boarded the helicopter. Troy, the pilot, immediately set my mind at ease. He played music that went along with what we were flying over. He did a great job explaining what we were seeing below. It was an awesome experience. We have no complaints. We even purchased the video of our actual flight, so we could share it with others and enjoy it for years to come. By the way, we were blessed to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary in our 50th state, Hawaii!

Although we could not fly over the volcano, the views of molikai were beautiful. What a great experience!!

Great experience. I'd never been in a helicopter before and this was a really good first time trip. We had our teenage kids with us and they completely enjoyed the whole experience. Very good tour guide. We saw some amazing waterfalls on the other side of the island because the crater was under heavy fog that day so we had to detour to another area.

wow!!!! what an amazing adventure. Was not sure if we would like being in a helicopter but it was nothing like I thought. It was a smooth and very nice ride. The view was amazing. Maui air staff was the very, very best I have had the pleasure to work with.
