I did the open door tour back in Sept 2012. Best time ever. For anyone trying to take high quality photos of beautiful Maui you must do the tour with no doors!!! Yes, it can get a little windy but it's all worth it. Staff was professional and made the ride very memorable. I recommend this to anyone that visits... More

FYI, just to save you some of the time I spent researching this issue. AlexAir still has a website advertising open door helicopter rides over Maui, but you cannot book any reservations or contact anybody from this company, as they have gone out of business. AlexAir had offered the only open door helicopter tour on Maui in the Hughes 500... More

Great experience for the whole family... we opted for the closed door flight due to the age of the children but they were looked after brilliantly.. sharing the front and the views while my wife and I slummed it in the back!! We picked the Delux West Maui package and our pilot was great... the climb to the top to... More

We booked the West Maui/Molokai 45min tour and it was amazing! Our pilot Matt was great, knowledgeable and funny. He certainly made our tour more spectacular. We even had a music soundtrack that seemed to be timed with the scenic views!! We did the open door tour - i highly recommend it. I'm pregnant and enjoyed every second - was... More

My husband and teens wanted to take a helicopter ride while in Maui. Quite a few helicopter companies appeared to seat more people (cause obstructed view?), and wanted you to pay for an extra seat if a passenger's weight was over 240 (contrary to what their website said). We were delighted to find AlexAir. Their helicopter was gorgeous to look... More

We were on our honeymoon and our first activity was Alexair helicopter. We did the door off experience. This was absoulty amazing!! They take you around the coast line and into the mountains. You see the most amazing waterfalls. Alexair set us off on the right foot for our honeymoon!!

I'm a long time Maui resident who has never taken a helicopter trip before. We were planning one for my birthday with another company when my son surprised me with a solo trip on Alex Air so I got TWO rides!I had been wondering what the differences were between the different tours because they all go to the same place....

Our "big Splurge" on Maui, a Helicopter ride over Molokai and the Lao Valley. Our pilot was awesome - lots of detailed information about what we were seeing, he made sure to tilt the heli and turn so everyone got a good look. We had unusually clear weather while flying over Molokai and the Lao Valley, and the pilot took... More

We took the doors-off tour to Molokai and West Maui. Our pilot's name was Matt and he was great, played CCR and Enya while we floated above the mountain tops. We got the best view of mile-high waterfalls and lush green forests. The sea cliffs are unbelievable, and there is no way to fathom it without seeing it. It was... More

Doors off Trip! My husband and I went on the Alex Air Doors Off Extreme trip on 4-22. Let me first say we’re Maui residents and have done almost every activity on the island (Boats, parasailing, jet skiing, raft trips, zip lines, surfing, hikes, Haleakala, etc.), but this Doors-off experience blew us away! Wow. As soon as we arrived Anita... More
