Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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 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 a USB of the entire experience can be purchased at the end of the flight.

Great trip! Pilot was engaging and knowledgeable on history of area while keeping it fun an light. Highly recommend.
Not all seats are created equal

Definitely didn’t catch the part about sharing a helicopter with 5 other people. My view was mostly of the other passengers and the pilots head. The couple in front had a spectacular view while I struggled to get a glimpse of the beauty that surrounded us. SUPER sad! The 3 stars are for the area and friendly pilot. Gorgeous views if you aren’t in the middle back seat. Definitely was disappointed for how much I paid.

Captain Kirk was an awesome narrator and pilot! This was my first helicopter tour and it was wonderful- the highlight of my Maui adventures. Clear day low winds and a spectacular view of Molokai. This is a must do tour.

It was so beautiful, Captin Kirk was so good. Don't think it twice, it's a must-do, to your visit to Maui. You get to see a part of Hawaii that you wouldn't see otherwise.
A must do!

The most beautiful experience we had while we were here. This was our first time on a helicopter and we felt very safe and well informed of what was going to happen and then once we took off what we were looking at.
Bucket list checked off
, Aug 2021
Loved the views. Definitely worth it. I was told it was a once in a lifetime kind of experience and it truly is! I’m very excited I am now able to check it off my bucket list. Kirk, our pilot was the best! All the members in my family were also happy with the experience.
Life changing

Amazing and a life changing experience. The tour guide was nice and entertaining. We had beautiful music playing in our headphones the whole time. I would do it again if I could. I got to see the largest ocean cliffs in the whole world. It was amazing.
Excellent and awesome

Pilot was wonderful and put his soul in flying and showing us the beauty of Maui. Very passionate about living in Hawaii and flying us around Molokini island views with waterfalls was extraordinary and spectacular
