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 views - a bit pricey for the time in the air
, Dec 2019
We had a really great time in the air - we flew with Captain Kirk and we took off on time and then flew to Molokai across the straits of Laihaina roads, and then over the peaks of West Maui and back. What I liked 1) The Molokai part of the tour - the waterfall views were really amazing 2) Captain Kirk and the way he flew the craft - really very professional and never felt unsafe at any time. 3) The aerobatics, near the waterfalls of Molokai again thanks to Captain Kirk What I think could have been better 1) The West Maui part : Honestly it was a bit underwhelming compared to what I was expecting - maybe spend more time over Molokai? 2) Cost : A bit steep, especially for the time we were in the air. Seemed like it ended way too early. Their photos/video for sale was also way overpriced at the end of the tour. Overall it was a really fun experience, and I'd recommend this tour to anyone who wants THE BEST possible vantage point of especially Molokai.

This trip was on my bucket list, words can not express what it was like. If you want to see the real Hawaii you have to take this trip, I booked it with Air Maui and could not of been happier. The pilot was great ,the narration was excellent .Just make sure that if you buy the video as i did know that it the flash drive is downloaded from a mac, i had to get it switched over to pc. $65.00
Great Tour - not so great instructions from Viator.
, Dec 2019
Great tour... saw spinning dolphins and a Manta Ray. Food was good and staff was great. However, Viator does not give ANY instructions on where to meet and we could’ve easily missed our tour. Get to the area early!
Fantastic ride

The pilot was extremely knowledgeable and I felt safe the whole time. The route over Molokai was spectacular with amazing views of water falls, sea cliffs and remote villages. Absolutely a must for anyone visiting Maui!

We sat front seat flying through the valleys and it was amazing. The views were breathtaking not to mention our pilot was fantastic
Breathtaking views of Maui and Molokai
, Aug 2019
I took my family for a surprise helicopter tour of Maui and Molokai for our last day in Maui. The views were spectacular but I only wished that Maui Helicopter provided a more informative and excited pilot. Jessie was nice but kinda dry. He didn’t really look like he enjoyed his job
Awesome adventure!

We were impressed with the skill of our pilot, Richie. We know it isn’t as simple as it appears. The lush foliage of the ravine/valley was so breath taking and we never cease to be amazed at the beauty of God’s creation.
Could Not Be More Satisfied
, Jul 2019
The whole experience was organized and seamless. The pilot was informative and cordial. The ground staff were helpful and knowledgeable. The views of the West Maui mountains and Molokai were unbelievable. There is only one way to the see the "wall of tears". This is a must do!
