The entire family (from ages 60 to 8) had the best time soaring over the rain forest terrain and seeing amazing views of waterfalls that you can only dream of ever seeing in person. The pilot adds fun music and takes video of your trip from multiple angles including inside the helicopter. Your family will be talking about this for years to come.” – 981phila “We did a lot of tours on our vacation (snorkeling, whale watching, bike tour, Hana tour), and the family agreed that this stood out among all the others. We would definitely do another helicopter tour with Air Maui if we visit the island again.“ – organdj123 “Our 2nd time with AM, my parents first, and our girls (11 & 9) first time too! They all had a blast and loved our pilot, Cameron. He was awesome and lots of fun! My parents had been on another Helicopter tour on Maui with a company down the strip from AM and they said AM was WAY better and much more fun and enjoyable. We did the West Maui and Molokai trip this time around and it was fabulous. Next time we are doing it with the doors off! Can’t wait to fly with AM again!!! They are seriously awesome and worth every penny and you can’t beat the memories you will have!“ – Discover00850451993 A wonderful way to celebrate any holiday is a helicopter tour over beautiful Maui. Book online through our tours page or call us at (808) 877-7005 if you have any questions.

Here is what some of our guests have to say about their time with us: “This was the best tour we have ever had. We have been to Maui 4 times but this is the first time we have ridden in a helicopter. We had stunning views along with some history and explanation of what we were seeing. This is a must do trip.” – merviev “Air Maui NO DOORS helicopter tour was the best thing we did in Maui. It was a great experience. My husband and I had both never been on a helicopter, and we felt very safe and had the best time. Our pilot Jessi was very comforting, had a great playlist during the trip and gave just enough commentary. We would use Air Maui again in the future!“ – jennabommarito “You can’t go wrong with anything you do in Maui. It’s paradise from top to bottom and you won’t have a bad time no matter what you do. But… if you want to take it to the next level, and see it like you’ll never see it otherwise, head up in the air with Air Maui. The time spent in the air will be the highlight of your trip, as you see not only incredible, inaccessible parts of Maui, but as I did, the incredible cliffs of Molokai. Breathtaking stuff that you have to see to believe. Photos and videos don’t even come close to doing it justice. Trust me on this, you gotta go up with Air Maui, they make the experience easy, safe, and fun. Our pilot, Kirk, was informative, funny, and entertaining. He clearly loves his job and we can’t recommend this company enough!“ – stefanandaudrey A helicopter tour of Maui is a great way to celebrate any holiday!
