Our welcoming and professional staff greet every passenger and personally assist with check-in.

Being the best is just the first step; our pilots must also excel at being your personal guide, entertaining and informing you about Maui's history, geology, flora and fauna as you soar above fantastic landscapes.In aviation, quality and safety are paramount. At Air Maui, the proof is in our record: over 20 years of perfect safety. That's not luck - it's the combined commitment of professional pilots and top-notch aircraft maintenance.

We had a great hour with Air Maui and our pilot Dylan who was awesome, funny and very knowledgeable with his Island.

“Very Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We did the 45 min tour as it was clearly the best value and affordable. We were greeted by an extremely friendly staff you went out of their way to engage the three couples on our flight and make us comfortable. Seating is determined by weight, and my wife and I were seated directly behind the pilot, which we realized was the least best seats for picture taking (b/c of where the pilot sits and because the right side window has a few small obstructions, so all of our pictures include the back of someone's head or the window mechanisms. It would have been perfectly fine in the other seats, I believe. They offer for purchase a picture of your group in front of the helicopter as well as a dvd of your flight. Because we didn't get to take many great shots we were inclined to purchase the set of the dvd and photo, but then they informed us that the camera wasn't working properly and the dvd was not of great quality. We were disappointed but grateful that they told us the truth instead of making a sale at our expense. Overall, we enjoyed the flight greatly, but wished we could have gotten better pictures. For the value, it was worth it.

“Air Maui Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We took the 45 minute tour of west Maui and Molokai. What great tour. The sights were fantastic and the pilot was very informative. We saw sights that one may not be able to see from land (waterfalls, cliffs, schools of fish, rain forests). Only one regret, I wish we would have taken the 90 minute tour. Get the DVD of your trip and relive the experience, although it is not like being there. We booked our tour through Maui Activities and they have great tour selections.

“Great flight, perfect day.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Overall great experience. Our pilot Jeanette was professional and kept up her commentary throughout the flight... Which was a little much as she used our names constantly. This was for the DVD recording, but it still felt a little forced. Felt completely safe and saw amazing sights that you just can't get to on foot or by car. I highly recommend a flight by Air Maui!

“Very good helicopter tour on Maui”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

We looked at several tour companies and settled on this one because of the good reviews. We took the tour of West Maui and Molekai. The pilot was a native of Maui and was very knowledgeable. I would come back to these folks again.
