An expensive outing, but worth it. We flew over the west coast of Maui and Molokai Island. The scenery was magnificent and the flight itself an absolute joy. We had front row seats and therefore a fabulous view of the coastline and hinterland, complimented by the pilots informative commentary.

Being able to reserve the front seats is the only way to go. Can't wait to go again. We would highly reccomend. Start out early, heliport is difficult to find.

This is a great way to see Hawaii's breathtaking landscape. Our flight from Maui to Molokai gave us the opportunity to see the natural beauty of a much less developed island. I sat in the back row at a window. I think the front seats would be better, but I saw plenty from the back.

Do the Molokai trip it is like nothing I have every seen before. This is why you come to Maui/Hawaii to see a different kind of wild natural beauty. Otherwise you might as well go to the Caribbean or whatever short haul tropical spot to see pools, beaches, snorkel, heat and humidity.

This company was absolutely great! The reason I enjoyed it so much is because the price was reasonable, the pre-flight briefing was great and informational, but what made this a blast was our pilot. I feel bad because I forgot to give this awesome dude a tip. The knowledge of the island and his delivery of information was second to... More

This was one of the best things we did in Hawaii!! The pilot was great and the views were unbelievable! We did the waterfall lovers and Molokai tour. I would do the same tour again if I went! We got to see huge waterfalls, whales from the helicopter, and many of the parts of Hawaii you can only see from... More

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and wanted to book a helicopter tour on Kauai so we could see the Waimea Canyon and the Na'Pali Coast cliffs. The concierge at our hotel highly recommended Sunshine both because of their reputation for great tours, but also because they operate out of the Princeville airport in addition to the main... More

I can't review the helicopter tour because i didn't get to go on it. I can, however, review our interaction with the customer "service" team. We walked through the door and the agent looked up and said "Name?" That's it. No hello, no welcome, nada. She then proceeded to tell us that our tour had been pushed back an hour... More

We went for a our of Haleakala and Hana with our awesome pilot, Matt, and it was hands-down the best part of our week on Maui. The flight was excellent, the helicopter comfortable and clean, Matt's narration was fantastic, and the views of the rainforest, crater, and coastline were absolutely stellar. This trip was worth every cent, and is the... More
