Begin your tour at the Kahului Heliport where you board an air-conditioned, A-star helicopter with six forward-facing leather seats, each with 180-degree views. Once in the air, you head for the East Maui rain forest, where your pilot points out sights and offers information about Maui’s rich history. Take in the island's undeveloped landscape and soar over the Hana coastline to see waterfalls joining the sea. Next, ascend the Haleakala Crater along its eastern ridge until you reach the 10,000-foot (3,050-meter) summit. Hover and admire one of the world’s tallest dormant volcanoes before returning to the heliport, where the tour ends. Purchase a souvenir USB with narrated footage of the flight for a separate charge.

Beautiful Views of Maui
Jun 2021
We booked a helicopter ride to see the volcano peak and the road to Hana. Felt this would allow us to get a good view of that area without driving. The trip did not disappoint. We had amazing views of the crater and the lush jungle with multiple waterfalls. Trip was not too long or short and kids had a blast. Great narration from Captain Kirk! Would recommend.

Road to Hana
Nov 2019
We only had a week for R and R but wanted to see as much as possible. Road to Hana can take many hours because of the many tourists driving and stopping. We opted for the helicopter tour to Hana and saw many hidden waterfalls, the rain forest, an the crater. Very enjoyable. Wear a hat.

The best view
Nov 2019 • Couples
If you traveling to such a beautiful place like Maui island - helicopter tour is a MUST. We used this company and did not regret it. You will see all the beauty of nature: green forest, waterfalls, ocean, volcano crater, jungles. It was not our first helicopter ride but it was something unique. Also, I really enjoyed the musical accent during the trip. Each place was associated with a song and made our experience even more enjoyable. You will not regret it 100%!

Absolutely Amazing!!
Oct 2019 • Family
This was an amazing day!! From the minute we arrived at their offices, we were made to feel very welcome. The staff are very friendly and helpful with any questions you have. After a short safety video we were heading out to the helicopter. Our pilot, Kelly, was very knowledgeable about the whole area and his music selection was great. I would recommend this trip to anyone, our daughter is 9 and she loved it!!

Aloha Air Maui Staff & Cameron:

Back at home base after an amazing retirement vacation in Maui and the Big Island with the highlight being sharing Cameron's office and backyard, truly spectacular experience. After 23 yrs of being in a cockpit (fixed & rotary) Cameron is to be commended for his professionalism and first rate pilot skills. We loved his music selection, narration, humour, the complete package!
Could have certainly used his mountain flying skills out here on the West Coast of B.C..
Just want to say thank you so much and the best with future flying career, see you guys in two yrs with our daughter & co. Bravo Zulu Cameron!

Not exactly to plan but still great!
Sep 2019 • Couples
Dylan was our pilot and he was great! There was adverse weather over Haleakala so we couldn’t go there, we went over Molokai instead. They gave us the option to do the alternate route or refund / select a different day, so we just went the alternate route. Dylan gave us lots of information during the tour which was informative and interesting. I enjoyed the music he selected as well! Everyone here was super nice and they are obviously very concerned for everyone’s safety. Highly recommend!

Weather conditions revised trip
Jul 2019 • Couples
Due to low clouds, flight to Haleakala and Hana was revised to see NE Maui and NE Shore of Molokai; Disappointing but not the fault of Air Maui.
Back seat placement limited views out the side windows but Cameron, our pilot was friendly, informative and knew and appreciated the Hawaiian islands.

Thank you for the review and feedback. I am sorry the clouds over East Maui changed the flight plan but I am happy to hear you still enjoyed the optional flight route over West Maui and Molokai with Cameron. We look forward to seeing you the next time your travels bring you back to the islands.
