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.

It was beautiful
, Jul 2021
I really loved seeing the waterfalls and seeing the untouched jungle over the mountains. Our captain was super nice and made us laugh a lot. Hopefully we will get to do it again sometime.
Memories Forever
, Jul 2021
Amazing trip! Made memories with my 10 year old son that will last a lifetime! The flight and pilot narration were awesome!
, Jul 2021
Wow, so glad we did this. The views of Hawaiian islands are beautiful from land, but even more incredible from the helicopter. Molokai cliffs and waterfalls are mind blowing. Our pilot Vince was a true professional, and made sure that everyone was enjoying the ride. This was the highlight of our trip for my mom and myself.
Amazing Tour and Virws!
, Jul 2021
Captain Cameron was amazing and the sights were even better. I feel that the length of the tour was appropriate. I learned a lot and would definitely do it again. The staff was also amazing, very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!
Ride was smooth and amazing but we got our trip rescheduled on the last minute
, Jun 2021
They canceled our trip last minute so we have to cancel everything on the next day. Expensive and not flexible. Not our fault we book it a month ago and they said our trip is not even confirmed.
Great service and choice
, Jun 2021
The special attention from the pilot in addition the the beautiful mountains/waterfalls a life time experience thank you
Best experience in Maui!
, Jun 2021
A must do! One of the top experiences I’ve ever had! Simply beautiful and there is no other way to experience the sights we saw! Richie was an awesome pilot.
Saw sights exclusively for helicopter viewing
, Jun 2021
So loved seeing the mountains from an exclusive helicopter view!!! Very calm and knowledgeable pilot. Kept us relaxed as we learned while enjoying an exclusive view.
Tour cut short
, Jun 2021
This company put customer safety above all else. Out tour was cut short because winds increased after we were in the air only 10 minutes. We safely returned the terminal and our fare was refunded. Unfortunately we were leaving the next day and couldn’t rebook. I will use them again on my next trip to Maui.
Breathtaking Views!
, Jun 2021
Wow! The views of Maui and Molokai are unmatched from the sky! This helicopter tour took us over North-West Maui (Nakalele Blowhole) and North Molokai. The views all around are breathtaking and the pilot was great in his commentary on the same. Our first experience in a helicopter was amazing and we would highly recommend taking this tour when in Maui. Note: 1. Do call the operator and confirm the exact tour timing as Viator only mentions approximate tour start time - for example, we chose the Afternoon slot (1-4 PM) but were actually assigned the 4-4:45 PM ride. 2. Do keep in mind that Uber does not service the heliport. While Lyft does provide service, we had difficulty in booking a ride after the tour. Ashley at Air Maui was helpful in getting us an airport cab instead (we were headed to the airport)
