As we had no idea on what Maui offered it was fantastic. My husband and I were on a cruise Pride of America, we booked online prior to our trip. We caught a taxi to the airport, checked in, weighed and watched the safety movie. Our pilot Mike was very informative. There was so many whales with babies. We did a landing near Wailea I think it was and had some Pineapple champagne. Then went up the mountain over the crater that looks like the moon. The came many waterfalls and rainbows. Past Hana and the beautiful landscape along the coast We bought the dvd and am very happy with it as I get to relive the flight. As we were only at Maui for 2 day we definately think this is the only option and have time to relax while on holiday.

We've flown in airplanes all our lives, but had never taken a helicopter ride before, so we didn't know what to expect. Exhilaration - that's what! How incredible. The ride itself is fascinating. But on top of that, you're treated to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. And since we were there in February, that means the whales were there too. It was so cool to be able to look down and see them from a different perspective. Amazing. We took the Complete Island Tour which lasted about an hour. Our pilot (don't remember his name) was funny, informative and really set us at ease. We loved it! Although, if you're prone to motion sickness, you may want to take a bonine or dramamine an hour or so before your flight. We don't have a problem with that, but could see where some of the turns might cause someone with those tendencies to become sick. Again, we absolutely loved it and would do it again!

“Best Ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Another reviewer posted a comment "You get what you pay for" which is so true. We traveled with my brother-in-law and his wife and purchased the top tier tour (all of Maui) on the Eco-Star. It was expensive but worth it. I've been to Maui a couple times but this was my first helicopter tour. Wow. The Eco-Star gives the best views possible with practically 360 degrees in the front and very gracious views in the back because of raised seating. The guides are very good at turning around to give both sides of the helicopter the same views. It is encouraged to use the open mics to communicate throughout the ride. Our tour included a touch down on a ranch on the side of a mountain for pics, champagne/drinks, and cheeses and crackers. If you're on a budget you need to think it through considering price vs experience. You could pay less somewhere else and still be unhappy due to the poor views out of the helicopter or choices in tours. Choosing Blue Hawaiian takes the guess work out of the equation.
