Highlights
See West Maui and Molokai during a doors-off helicopter flight
Access parts of the islands that are not easy to reach by land
Get better photo ops with your cell phone camera on Maui's only doors-off helicopter tour 
Choose from several departure times in the morning and afternoon
What to expect
Make your own way to the Kahului Airport in Maui before the scheduled departure for your morning or afternoon flight.  Your pilot welcomes you aboard the helicopter, then provides a safety briefing and flight orientation. Soon, your helicopter soars above the coast of Maui and Molokai, and you can take in sweeping views of the majestic scenery, including tall mountains, deep ravines, isolated beaches, and remote waterfalls in the island's craggy interior. Snap photos with your cell phone camera from the open-air cabin, getting clear shots without the interference of windows that cause glare or blurriness. As this is the only doors-off sightseeing flight by helicopter offered on Maui, it has become a popular activity, and the highlight of many vacations.  The ride returns to Kahului Airport where your tour ends. The time frame leaves ample time for additional activities in the day after a tour that provides a stunning perspective on this part of Hawaii.

BEST way to see Maui & Molokai
Our pilot RIch was OuTsTANdiNg!! So knowledgeable about Maui & the island of Molokai! Doors off was definitely the way to go! A little scary but provided full views to the lushness of Molokai, it’s beaches & beautiful waterfalls! The staff before take off was top notch & their safety precautions made us feel at ease. Book the earliest time possible b/c if questionable weather arises, the flight will get bumped until it clears. We were lucky on our day, but tours after 8:30 am were cancelled & refunded. Don’t miss out on this incredible way to see Maui & Molokai!

Amazing (except those who get the front row middle seat)!
I will start by saying this was an AMAZING TOUR! I don’t love flying and was very nervous. However, a helicopter is much more like a magic carpet ride and I enjoyed it very much! Our flight was super smooth and we loved the commentary from our pilot, Cameron (I think)!

I gave this tour 4 stars for one reason...my son’s seat. There are 3 seats in the front row and 3 in the back. My husband and I were in the back row. I had middle seat and my hubby had a window. My son was front row in the middle (between the pilot and another gentleman). Here’s what was frustrating. My family of 3 paid for 3 full price seats. The other two who were in our group paid for single seats. We had 1 out of 3 of us get a window (but doors off) seat while the two who paid a lower price both enjoyed window seats. This is frustrating. My son had no view except forward because he had the pilot flying on the right and the gentleman on the left kept leaning into my son to get his pics. Truly....he was leaning heavily into my son because he seemed scared of the door being off. So....my son didn’t enjoy his ride.

We were told it had to be balanced in weight, but my son weighs the same as me. I’m just frustrated that this happened and it has bothered me since.

Again, if you get any seat besides the front row middle, you will absolutely enjoy this ride! It’s amazingly beautiful!

Blown Away! The Coolest Tour I've Done in my Life!
Jun 2021
This is a MUST DO!

If you are visiting Maui, make sure you book this tour.

My wife and I spent two weeks in Hawaii for our honeymoon (1 in Maui, 1 in Oahu) and I can say with absolute certainty, this was the highlight out of all the tours/attractions and activities that we did.

Cameron was our pilot. He was awesome. If the scenery isn't enough to keep you engaged, he would address us specifically to make us aware at things we can see on our respective sides of the heli.

Long story short, you won't be disappointed at this experience. It was by far one of the coolest things we've ever done!

AWSOME THRILLS!
The pilot - Dylan was polite and very knowledgeable of the air current conditions. I am a licensed commercial pilot and I don’t give compliments easily - Dylan made all the right decisions- awesome trip. The chopper was well powered to handle up and down drafts. Nice and close to the canyon walls to see the waterfalls!

DOORS OFF!!
Mar 2020
Our two families went out with Captain Kirk last week....it was awesome, I was the only one who had been in a helicopter before, and everyone was a little apprehensive about a chopper ride.....Captain Kirk had everyone relaxed, and once were airborne, the worry went away, it was too beautiful to worry! Our two 12 year old boys loved it too. It was surreal and we are so thankful we did this on our trip. We won't ever forget it!

This tour was so awesome!! Captain Kirk put all of us at ease with his soothing voice and great knowledge about the islands. I was terrified at first, but once we got going, the ride was so smooth, and the scenery SO AMAZING, that I forgot all about my fears and just enjoyed the ride.

Maui’s #1 Excursion
This helicopter tour was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had in all of Maui and probably the most exciting thing I’ve ever done in my entire life. I’ve been to over 26 countries and seen and done a lot. This by far takes the cake! The pilot and the ground crew are 5 stars all the way. The doors off experience was such an exciting, thrilling, amazing, and all out one heck of a ride. The wanted falls and see cliffs are so beautiful. Absolutely breathtaking experience up there. This Excursion left me breathless and shocked by Maui’s beauty. I’ll be looking forward to my next opportunity to take some more of their tours with them. If you’re looking to get in a helicopter or even considering taking advantage of the views, you definitely have to go with AIR MAUI, they won’t disappoint you. They will under promise and over perform every time. I stand behind this review 1000%. Experience of a lifetime. A big Mahalo (thank you in Hawaiian) to Air Maui and all their crew.
