My wife and I hadn't booked a helicopter tour before travelling to Hawaii, we mulled it over for a couple of days before booking one and were very glad we did. Maverick offered the best price on a full Maui Island tour and had good reviews so we went with them out of the many operators available. The booking process and arrival at the heliport were efficient and unfussy. Our pilot for the day, Jake, was friendly, welcoming and highly knowledgeable. In fact he seemed to know everything there is to know about Maui since it first started poking out of the Pacific Ocean and evidently enjoyed talking about it, effortlessly fielding every question about its history, geography and land usage while piloting a smooth flight.

This was a great way to see the island, everything from Volcano craters, the 'Jurassic Park' coastline and Hana Falls to the mountainside windfarm.

If, like us, you've come a long way (from London) to visit Hawaii then a helicopter tour will add a fair expense to your holiday budget but you won't regret it at all and Maverick are a good choice of operator to go with.

We did it all in Maui but this was hands down our favorite excursion!!!! Do this! We saw huge waterfalls, reefs that went on forever and whales below us. The pilot had music streaming in our headphones that was perfectly paired with the scenery. My only warning is that there are 7 seats in the helicopter so you may have others in the helicopter with you. We thought it was a private ride. Jake our pilot was awesome

I don’t usually review an activity but I decided to share this one. This is THE best way to see a place! In this case Maui. There are a few companies to choose from and each offer a few options. The duration and what to see are the most important choices but also flying without doors is also offered. We decided to go with Maverick’s circle island tour. We live on Maui’s west side and have seen a lot of the island by car and foot and even by boat but the view from a helicopter is an entirely different viewpoint. Booking the specific flight was easy once we decided on what we wanted to see. Before boarding, the pilot had us put on an inflatable device that is worn around the waist then he explained how we would be wearing the seatbelt as well as how to get out of it. We flew across the island and along the coasts. Flying by Haleakala volcano was amazing. Along with being able to see in the distance the island of Hawaii we also saw the Maui rain forest and thousand foot waterfalls. The pilot was very informative and pointed out several interesting areas. He also flew us over the ocean so that we could see some whales. What a perspective! We definitely recommend this flight and this company. I do have a fear of heights but during the entire flight never came close to being nervous.

We had fun and it was a good trip overall. I tried to get my wife and daughter up front when I made the reservation. It was important to me and I asked twice. They gave me a song and dance about "Pilot's decide based on Safety and CG envelope". I'm a Pilot and all about safety, the couple they put up front was very close to the same weight as my wife and daughter.
Disappointing.

They were "good" overall, but we left feeling we were just another group. Next time I'll just go to Blue Hawaii, they let you buy the front seats.

The whole experience was fantastic. We had the top pilot, Jake, for our flight. He did a great job of informing us of what to expect. He gave us insights into the geography, the history, and the back stories of every part of the island. We had driven to the top of Haleakala the day before to enjoy the sunset. The drive took two hours. We drove most of the way to Hana. That took most of the day. in the helicopter, we were able to get to the top in a few minutes and saw the volcano from all angles. This is a can't-miss activity on Maui.

I hate to fly but the only way to see all of the waterfalls or at least most of the waterfalls that Maui has to offer is from the air! Maverick was professional and prepared for our arrival. Felix was our pilot and he was super informative and made us feel comfortable in his abilities to maneuver the helicopter, even in turbulence. Felix kept everyone involved in the conversation and added a bit of humor for those of us who weren't the most comfortable in the air. I would recommend this experience and the same pilot. Although I will never do it again, it definitely is something to do at least one time.

We have taken 2 trips with Maverick and they were both OUTSTANDING! True highlight of our trip. The pilots are excellent, very safety minded, informational and fun. To see the island from a helicopter gives you views of the amazing terrain that one can't see from land - beautiful waterfalls, mountains, volcano - breathtaking! We did the 65 minute, Maui Dream trip to see the entire island and loved it. Flying above the coastline and through the mountains is magical.

If your styomachcan tolerate a helecoter ride, I MOST HIGHLY reommend Maverick Helocopter Tours. Our pilot Felix was TERRIFIC!!! He walked us through every manuever before executing. He let us know when it might get a little bumpy.---but it was not bad. The views from the chopper were incredible. Save the drive to the toip of Mount Haleokala, as well as the road to Hana. The waterfall views were incredible!!!

First of all, everything was safe and amazing. The views were great and the new helicopters that the companies have made a very smooth ride. There were lots of windows in the helicopter and we saw so many interesting attractions like waterfalls, the ocean, beaches, and glimpses of other islands like Lanai.
Our pilot (who has been at the company for 16 years) was AMAZING. His name was Jake Harmon, and if you get this nice, smart, helpful pilot, you are lucky. Of all of the Maui helicopter companies (and Kauai too), Maverick is the best choice. I’ll never forget the ride!
