Your helicopter tour begins at Kahului Heliport, where you 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, soar above waterfalls as you approach the East Maui rain forest. 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, 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 onboard the trip.

Awesome! Ono!

This was an incredible flight! The vantage point of seeing Haleakala up close was magnificent, the lush rain forests of Hana were beautiful to see. In addition to that, Dylan told us about the habitat and what flora and fauna abounded. Our flight attendants were helpful and there was even a chicken family outside the airport. Charming!

We didn’t do this tour since it was cloudy. We did the “waterfall tour” which was the best ever. Highly recommend this trip! Our pilot (Cameron) was knowledgeable and enjoyable.

All about the money!!

Do not book if you have hearing aids!!!! My husband has hearing aids and before we went I asked if that would be a problem hearing. I was assured by your company it would be fine. When my first got in the plane the girl put headphones on us and said to tell her if we couldn’t hear. My husband did tell her but she totally ignored him and we took off. He was unable to hear anything. It diminished the experience for us both. I tried to type out what we were seeing on my phone so he would know so I also missed a lot. I know I didn’t have to do this but I was trying to make the situation better for him. This was a lot of money to pay for half the experience. When we got back I told them what happened but they could care less. That already got there money. They were more concerned with selling a picture and video.

The team at Maui Helicopter Tours was top notch. From scheduling to safety to the pilot. The pilot was impressive with his knowledge of the Maui origins to the explanation of the views he flew us over.

Capt. Dylan’s playlist made the trip
Laura_K
, Jul 2021
My 18 year old daughter and I truly enjoyed this trip. Captain Dylan had given thought to the tour and the playlist to go with it. She said the music made the trip for her. Touring by helicopter was a wonderful way to see the crater while also seeing the many beauties of Maui’s coastline. The entire Air Maui team was also professional and efficient. A great day!

Cool experience. Not really for small children. They were bored. It’s best if you are in the front the back doesn’t get the best angles. Cool but just do road to Hana to get the real experience and save money 💰

Great Reroute
Michael_M
, Jul 2021
The tour was rerouted over Molokai island due to clouds on Maui to see the highest sea cliffs & amazing waterfalls and we were SO HAPPY! Air Maui has great service and very friendly pilots, definitely seek a trip to less viewed areas than the crater if you’ve already been to Haleakala- amazing!

Highly recommend

Excellent pilot who was very experienced. We had do direct due to weather and he couldn’t be any calmer. Especially tiff some of us who were a little anxious about the flight. Extremely helpful and accommodating staff. I highly recommend Air Maui.

Dylan was a very knowledgeable pilot and felt very safe the entire time. My wife is afraid of heights but this did not bother her at all.
