In an industry that demands the best Sunshine Helicopters delivers! We are the only company on Maui offering customers the ability to pre-book "First Class" front-row seating and the choice of two High-Tech helicopters: 1. Fly the New-Generation EC130 Whisper STAR, outfitted with all the latest technology and roomy cabin for 6 passengers. 2. Eco-friendly AS350 FX STAR, upgraded with the more powerful and quieter Honeywell Turbine engines, burning 10-15% less fuel than our competitors, allowing Sunshine to pass on a tremendous amount of savings to our guests. The fleet of helicopters are fully equipped with emergency pop-out floats for safety, air-conditioning, pilot-to-pax intercom and a 3-camera Sky-Cam Video system recording your actual tour.Sunshine Helicopters is a FAA Part 135 Air Carrier and Tour Operator Program of Safety (TOPS) Certified. Most of our pilots are former Flight Instructors of the top aviation schools in the nation or highly skilled military veterans. Your safety is our #1 priority!

Phenomenal experience from beginning to end. Front staff and pilot all impressed us with their customer service and seamless process. The hanger is easy to find and lovely, with an outdoor viewing patio to watch both helicopters and planes taking off and landing. Great for photo ops! Views could not be beaten. Our pilot (Peter) made sure we saw the... More

On our trip to Maui, we debated considerably whether to book a helicopter ride. We chose Sunshine based on our hotel's recommendation and general advertising. Great decision to take the ride and go with Sunshine. I cannot do justice writing about how thrilling the ride was. We did the Circle tour covering most of Maui in about 60-70 minutes. We... More

My party of 4 adults went on the Molokai Deluxe tour that lasted 65 minutes. What a fantastic ride! This was our 1st helicopter ride, and we loved it! Pete was our pilot and he made sure we had a great view all the way around. We saw waterfalls and stunning coast line, and Pete made sure to turn the... More

This tour went off without a hitch, it was fantastic, the pilot was very experienced and flew it amazingly well. He even had time for some extra flight time to another part of the island. He was informative, and very professional. You will be amazed.!!!! spend the extra $$ for the front seat, its worth it!

During a recent stay in Maui I decided to make the most of our stay by including a helicopter flight. I chose Sunshine as they flew the EC130, which is a nicer helicopter than a lot of the other companied have, and because you are able to reserve the front seats during booking. A lot of companies say you can... More
