There’s no better way to see Hawaii than from the seat of a helicopter, since most of the valleys, ridgelines, and waterfalls can only be viewed from the air. On this helicopter tour of the West Maui Mountains and Molokai, you’ll be instantly transported from Kahului Heliport to the heart of the ancient Hawaii, where it’s said that the bones of ancient chiefs are still secretly buried in these valleys.

Hover above ridgelines carved by 1.5 million years of wind and rain erosion, where mists cling to the bright green leaves of indigenous trees and ferns.

Staring out the window of the A-star helicopter—which has six, forward-facing seats—watch as dozens of cascading waterfalls carve rivulets down the cliffs. After circling the center of the West Maui Mountains, this Maui helicopter tour continues to Molokai for a flight past the world’s tallest sea cliffs, which dramatically plunge nearly 4,000 feet to waves crashing on the coast.

Throughout this helicopter tour of Maui, your expert pilot provides narration on history, geology, and wildlife, and a USB of the entire experience can be purchased at the end of the flight.

We are family of 3 ( my son is 13), and It is our first time to take the helicopter tour. The uniqueness of the tour is that you see the islands from top and outside in, so not only the view is unique , but you will be able to see the areas that you would not be able to see on land, for example , the super long waterfall. The pilot gave a good history and demographic info along the way, and the music is great too! Overall, it is definitely recommended if you have not done that before! A word of caution: we overdressed as we thought it would be cold in the air. But it is quite warm as the helicopter is close door.

Captain Kirk was awesome. He flew us around Molokai and gave us some history on the island. Although I ended getting very nauseous, at no blame to the pilot, I forgot to take my dramamine, I loved the experience and would recommend it to everyone! Loved the views! The islands are just so beautiful.

I have never been on a helicopter tour. I was nervous at first but when we in the air the ride was awesome and the views of Molokai and Maui were spectacular and phenomenal. I would recommend it to try it at least once.

Awesome experience for my wife and I. The views are insane and the pilots can do some pretty good maneuvers if you are into that. However, definitely not for the faint of heart of stomach hahaha.

Such an amazing experience, went to Moliki(?). Was able to go over the crest into the volcano. First time being in a helicopter, so def a great way to see areas we wouldn't get to see otherwise. Captain Kirk was knowledgeable and engaging with everyone on board.

Loved the guide. Loved the ride. The only thing I wish I knew was how to request the two front seats for an up charge. I would have done that but I didn’t see that as an option when booking. I didn’t love the back row.
