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!

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

The night before our trip I received a call saying they are canceling our trip due to maintenance. I understand maintenance is important, I don't want to be on a helicopter they is not properly taken care of &... More

Weather was poor with rain but pilot took us as far as he could. Well worth the effort and wonderful views. Would be amazing on a fine, clear day.

Pete was a great tour guide and pilot. We were very impressed with the Maui tour even though we were diverted due to rain after Hana. We went early and got an absolutely stunning view of Haleakala Crater. Pete took us to some incredible canyons where we saw deer and goats on the canyon walls. The tour was informative and... More

This was a blast. The service is excellent. Due to weather we could not do the package we had booked so they upgraded us for nothing to one that had better weather. It was an amazing trip and so worth it. Our pilot Matt was a great guide and quite funny. We purchased the video footage of our trip as... More

I paid $250 for a 45 minute flight. But it was also buy one get one free just for taking a 2 hour tour of Diamond Resorts. You get to see a lot during the flight. And our pilot was a retired Army pilot who kept us entertained the whole trip. If you want to see parts of the island... More

neat thing about this outfit is if you are inclined to do so, you can pay a little extra and sit in the front seats. The back seats have four passengers, so two are in the center without windows. if you are taking photos, it might be worth it to sit in front. They also have an option of doing... More
