Fabulous views of Maui! Maui has such vastly different eco-systems that you can only appreciate from the sky! This tour made my trip! Thanks Chris for being such a great pilot and tour guide!

We were able to sit in the front seat next to the pilot in a helicopter that held 8 passengers. It was more expensive, but well worth it due to the unobstructed view!

We did the Molokai Deluxe Tour. It was our first time in a helicopter and we had a blast. Steve was our pilot. He did an amazing job. The tour was great. The Whisper star first class seating is definitely worth the extra money.

Because of weather conditions the volcano was not going to happen this day. It is what it is. Our sky pilot Matt took us on a ride over the ocean & into infinity and beyond. Was my first time up in a helicopter & I didn't puke. Enjoy The Ride !

The equipment and the facility all were clean and tidy and modern, and the staff friendly and professional, such that the experience was really all about the scenic tour rather than about the helicopter itself. The ride was so smooth I didn't even realize we had taken off until we were... More
