Overview
See the lush landscape of Maui and Molokai from the air during a scenic 'doors-off' helicopter flight from west Maui, a sightseeing experience that guarantees the best aerial photos. Hear live commentary from your pilot during the open-air helicopter ride, which allows you to soak in unobstructed views of the rain forest, mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Plus, you can choose between a morning or afternoon departure to suit any schedule.
Highlights
  • See West Maui and Molokai during a doors-off helicopter flight
  • Access parts of the islands that are not easy to reach by land
  • Get better photo ops with your cell phone camera on Maui's only doors-off helicopter tour 
  • Choose from several departure times in the morning and afternoon
What to Expect
Make your own way to the Kahului Airport in Maui before the scheduled departure for your morning or afternoon flight.  Your pilot welcomes you aboard the helicopter, then provides a safety briefing and flight orientation. Soon, your helicopter soars above the coast of Maui and Molokai, and you can take in sweeping views of the majestic scenery, including tall mountains, deep ravines, isolated beaches, and remote waterfalls in the island's craggy interior. Snap photos with your cell phone camera from the open-air cabin, getting clear shots without the interference of windows that cause glare or blurriness. As this is the only doors-off sightseeing flight by helicopter offered on Maui, it has become a popular activity, and the highlight of many vacations.  The ride returns to Kahului Airport where your tour ends. The time frame leaves ample time for additional activities in the day after a tour that provides a stunning perspective on this part of Hawaii.

This helicopter tour was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had in all of Maui and probably the most exciting thing I’ve ever done in my entire life. I’ve been to over 26 countries and seen and done a lot. This by far takes the cake! The pilot and the ground crew are 5 stars
