A first time experience taking the whisper copter with two other passengers. Matt our pilot immediately put all of at ease and provided an awesome smooth ride. We saw amazing waterfalls, rainbows, sea life and more! Definitely worth the money!

We had a great adventure flying over Mo'loki falls and Maui. My two year old did great on the 90 min tour but much longer he might have started to complain. the pilot was cocky, but efficient. Overall a smooth ride and very accommodating to allowing every seat in the cockpit a view.

Our full island tour was cancelled due to inclement weather around the volcano, so they switched us to another route, saying that it would be the same time....instead of 70 minutes it came in @ 55 minutes and the pilot hovered in many areas to stretch it that long. Helicopter tours are all about the personality and knowledge of the... More

What a wonderful helicopter experience my daughter and I had, while in Maui. The 'Sunshine' staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about both the surrounding area, and safety of the aircraft. The view along the coastline and of several magnificent waterfalls, was spectacular to say the least. Our pilot said at one point that we were 'cruising along at about... More

It was my first time in a helicopter and I was admittedly a little nervous. The pilot was very reassuring and once we were in the air I completely forgot about all my apprehensions. The island is beautiful and seeing it from the air is such a unique perspective. At just over an hour, the tour time was perfect too,... More

Our family of 5 took the ride over west Maui and the island of Molokai. They did not add anybody to max out the trip to 6 people, thank goodness. I was initially nervous because this was a smaller helicopter than I've been in before. Our pilot, Matt, was great at putting us at ease. He spoke to us the... More

We had heard definitely do a helicopter tour while in Maui - so we had high expectations. Our resort helped book our trip and get a good price. We arrived - first hit we needing to pay for parking, okay... $3 to park out front of our helicopter tour office seemed odd but we were told it was state property.... More

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
