December is a great time to take a flight with Air Maui as waterfalls are usually quite beautiful due to the rain and also it is whale season, so you might get lucky and see whales during your flight! Here is what some of our guests have to say about their experiences:


“Captain Kirk is awesome. A reflection of everyone at Air Maui. A great experience from beginning to end. Captain Kirk is a great pilot with an easy going commentary, funny interaction with his passengers and insightful stories on the history of the places we flew over. Can't wait for our next adventure with Air Maui Helicopter Tours.” - Brad C

“We had a great time on this tour, we will do it again next time we visit Maui. Beautiful waterfalls and coastline that can be best appreciated from the air. Simply wonderful!“ - Coastal61669627958

All of our tours are very romantic and are something that you will both remember forever. Maui is one of the top romantic destinations in the world, and seeing it from the air is unlike anything else. Here is what some of our guests have to say about their experiences:


“The one thing my husband wanted to do while on our first Hawaiian vacation was a helicopter tour. I selected Air Maui because of other great reviews I read. And we were not disappointed! Well, a bit disappointed we didn't choose the longer tour! :) We did the 45 min West Maui/Molokini tour and it was amazing! The pilot had a calming and reassuring voice and he knew so much about what we were seeing. He made us feel very comfortable and took us to see some amazing sites! 45 minutes FLEW by and before we knew it, we were back at the heliport and our ride was over! I highly recommend this tour, even if you have some reservations about it. It was truly the BEST day of our 10 day Maui vacation! Thanks Air Maui!” - Melissa1369

“My wife and I took the 45 min West Maui Molokai tour. Unbelievable!!! The view of the highest cliff waterfalls in the world were a must see. The take off was smooth and thrilling. We all loved it. Do not skip this adventure while in Hawai’i.” - jimmybk

“This was by far the highlight of the trip. I have been going to Maui for over 10 years now and though I had seen most of the island. This trip surpassed my expectations on what we would see. My girlfriend and I did the Mt Haleakala and Hana tour with the cliff side landing. The trip takes you up to 10k feet to the top of the volcano. Then down to the rocky cliff side where you get 20 mins to explore. Once back in the heli it takes you back through the mountains to view incredible waterfalls that are only accessible by air (my favorite part of the trip). Then you fly over the road to Hana and eventually though Hana. Will 100% do this again next time I'm back.” - Kyle C.

“I bought this excursion as a gift to my hubby since he always wanted to ride in a helicopter, I chose Air Maui and I'm so happy I did! Everyone was so friendly and professional. Rich our pilot was awesome and I felt super comfortable on the ride. Rich had a lot of interesting history to share about Maui as well. We rode through the west Maui mountains and over the highest sea cliffs of Molokai, truly beautiful and actually very spiritual. Definitely a wonderful experience!” - jenrabidou
