I have been to Maui 9 times over the past 20 years but had never taken a helicopter excursion. We booked a Complete Island tour with Blue Hawaiian in Kahului. When we checked in, we were advised that adverse weather would prevent flying over east Maui and Haleakala Crater. We were offered a refund, rebook or alternate tour to West... More

What a great story! I’ve been flying here for almost 30 years and have always recommended the West Maui/Molokai tour to my friends and family. People hear about Haleakala Crater and Hana and it is a very good choice if you want to see it all in a short amount of time. But the valleys, cliffs and waterfalls of West... More

We took the 50 minute tour on the ecostar. You definitely want to splurge for this better copter. Much more comfortwable and better visibility. Great views of the volcano and waterfalls. We were able to see glowing lava areas. Our pilot was very knowledgeable. Please, parents, consider carefully whether you bring your kids. We were with a family of 2... More

A great trip. The sights from above Maui are incredible. We also got to go accross the channey to Molakai and see the waterfall there. All I can say about this is wow. We had a great flight with a knowledgeable pilot who talked to us throughout the flight and the two way conversation really added to the trip as... More

Definitely one of the highlights of the trip. We saved this until the end of our trip so we can say,"hey we were there". We went with the Maui spectacular that stopped at the base of Haleakala. It was breathtaking seeing south Maui from way up there. After all of it I have to say that the best part was... More

This was an amazing adventure. Its also the only way you can see the best part of Hawaii. We had booked a helicopter tour on Kauai, but during our stay it rained so much it was cancelled twice. So when we got to the big island, this was first on our list. We had a two hour long flight, and... More

On our trip to Kauai me and my dad went on this beautiful ride on the eco-star. Our pilot was Brandon and he was super nice and answered any question. If you go on this with only 2 people including yourself I would highly reccomend requesting the two front seats you may not get them because seats are chosen by... More

Only way to see some of the great valleys, waterfalls and shoreline is from a Helicopter. Very professional pilot - very informative and great ride. A bit pricey but worth the time if you want to see some great parts of the islands.

Highly recommended, and don't worry if it is overcast, made it easier to see where the hot spots were. Flight was smooth and very informative.

Four of us took the one-hour Maui trip on the new eco-star helicopters. Amazing sights, great pilot (Anna) who provided a superb commentary along with excellent flying skills to maximize the view for people on both sides of the copter; very comfortable seats; excellent sound system. great views in all directions. The safety procedures are very thorough, and none but... More

Anna appreciated your comments as she has worked so hard to enhance her knowledge as a State Certified Tour Guide. The Eco-Star was a great choice as it is the only helicopter ever designed specifically for air tours. I’m glad to hear you mention the comfortable seats and great views as this is the big difference between this and other... More

The helicopter ride was fun, but I wouldn’t do it again. It really is SO expensive for 45 minutes. A good chunk of the time was spent crossing the ocean and back to see Molokai. The waterfalls were beautiful and it was good to ride in a helicopter once. When we landed we were told that the audio wasn’t working... More

Thank you for your feedback. I understand that it is expensive for a 45 – 50 minute flight of West Maui and Molokai. I truly wish we could make it more affordable but it is very expensive to run a first class turbine helicopter operation. I understand that you wouldn’t do that flight again but I appreciate that you’re glad... More
