My teenage boys and I enjoyed this so much. It allowed us to see different areas of the island and gave us ideas of things we wanted to go back to that we didn’t previously know. Our pilot also gave us some great history about the environment, locale, and folklore that we were able to pass on to the rest of our family while on vacation. It rained during part of our flight which i actually thought was pretty cool because we were flying over the rain forest and seemed part of the allure. Our pilot got us out of the rain for the vast majority of our trip for spectacular sunny views of the island and coast. I would definitely do it again.

Great helicopter tour! I was able to see the Road to Hana well before I drove it (so I knew what I was in for). Amazing views - a great opporunity to experience the more nature-y side of the island if you don't plan on hiking.

Loved the narration during the ride (along with fun music cues). If you've never been in a helicopter before you'll feel safe (doors on).

Pleased overall and would recommend!

We were first-time helicopter riders and this tour was perfect! Captain Cameron did a great job talking us through everything that was happening and made sure everyone was comfortable. He also had a lot of knowledge to share. The East side of Maui is definitely the place to see by helicopter if you have to choose.

We booked a helicopter ride to see the volcano peak and the road to Hana. Felt this would allow us to get a good view of that area without driving. The trip did not disappoint. We had amazing views of the crater and the lush jungle with multiple waterfalls. Trip was not too long or short and kids had a blast. Great narration from Captain Kirk! Would recommend.

We only had a week for R and R but wanted to see as much as possible. Road to Hana can take many hours because of the many tourists driving and stopping. We opted for the helicopter tour to Hana and saw many hidden waterfalls, the rain forest, an the crater. Very enjoyable. Wear a hat.

If you traveling to such a beautiful place like Maui island - helicopter tour is a MUST. We used this company and did not regret it. You will see all the beauty of nature: green forest, waterfalls, ocean, volcano crater, jungles. It was not our first helicopter ride but it was something unique. Also, I really enjoyed the musical accent during the trip. Each place was associated with a song and made our experience even more enjoyable. You will not regret it 100%!

This was an amazing day!! From the minute we arrived at their offices, we were made to feel very welcome. The staff are very friendly and helpful with any questions you have. After a short safety video we were heading out to the helicopter. Our pilot, Kelly, was very knowledgeable about the whole area and his music selection was great. I would recommend this trip to anyone, our daughter is 9 and she loved it!!
