"This helicopter tour was nothing more than a glorified taxi from Hana to the heliport"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5

I booked all my helicopter tours through Princess cruises. The tours in Hilo, Honolulu and Kauai were wonderful, But Maui was a joke. The Maui tour consisted of a small van excursion up the Road to Hana, catered lunch and helicopter tour. The pilot practically bee lined it back to the heliport. Very disappointing and expensive. Be advised, do not waste your $$ unless you exclusively fly.

"Helicopter Ride"

We did the Maui Spectacular Tour which was definitely worth the $400 price for the 90 minute trip around Maui. We got our moneys worth. We did our trip on our first full day so we could get a feel for the layout of the island. The helicopter was beautiful and spotless and the amount of window space allowed for breathtaking views in all directions. The pilot was very professional and we felt very safe. There was a bit of weather on top of Mt. Haleakalā that limited us, so instead of flying over the volcano our pilot took us over to the island of Molokai which was a beautiful surprise! We did get to land on the side of Haleakalā further down and have a glass of champagne about half way through our tour. The amount of waterfalls we passed close by to the side of our helicopter were countless. The ocean was clear around the shoreline and we even got to see whales breaching everywhere due to their current mating season. The beautiful mountains and valleys brought tears to me eyes because of their beauty and the beautiful Hawaiian inspired music playing in our headsets. Words cannot express how amazing the scenery was. I wouldn’t have changed anything about our flight. This trip would not be great for those afraid of heights. We were up thousands of feet above the cliffs and if you are seated in the front seats of the helicopter you nearly have a glass bottom starting at your toes as the windshield works it’s way up above your head.

"Great tour"

We took the helicopter tour around Maui. Our pilot & tour guide was Rick. We started by going around west Maui & seeing the coast & first valley. Than we saw the Ka’anapali coast & spotted numerous whales off Lahaina. We fly up to the crater at Haleakalā than the road to Hana & the waterfalls. It was a great tour. We highly recommend it plus we enjoyed our pilots narrative. This is our 5th tour with Blue Hawaiian & they have all been great.

"Fabulous activity!"

After missing the boat many times over the years, we finally managed to fit in a helicopter tour of West Maui, and it was a fabulous experience. Admittedly, we hesitated because of the cost, but it was well worth it in the end. The views were breathtaking, and the commentary very informative and fun (thank you Bruno!). Would not hesitate to recommend it.

Frequently Asked Questions about Blue Hawaiian Maui Helicopter Tours

Do you make a video of our actual tour? How long is it?
Every flight is captured on a high-quality DVD. Each helicopter is equipped with four cameras; three external and one in the cabin. The video recording begins during the boarding process. On the video, you'll most likely first see yourself as you approach the aircraft for boarding. To orchestrate the most interesting video, the pilot chooses between the forward, side or internal camera as the flight progresses. The cabin camera, for example, usually shows you right after lift-off as it is so much fun to capture our guests’ expressions of amazement. The recording is continuous until landing and includes digital quality music chosen to complement the changing scenery, plus all the pilot's narration. The video is available for purchase right after you return from your flight.

What should we wear?
Our helicopters are temperature-controlled so dress comfortably but wear dark clothing to minimize any window reflections. If your flight includes a landing at higher elevations, bring a sweater in case it's chilly. Hats are not allowed to be worn around the helicopters as they can fly up into the rotors and damage the aircraft. We will be happy to hold any hats for you until you return from your tour.

Do you recommend taking anti-motion sickness medication?
If you are particularly prone to motion sickness, taking a precautionary anti-motion sickness medication is a good idea. However, our flights are very smooth and turns are slow and gentle. This is a professional scenic tour, not a thrill ride. Most people do not experience motion sickness and do not need an anti-motion sickness medication.

Will we be the only ones in the helicopter? How is seating arranged?
Unless you charter the complete helicopter you will be sharing the flight with other guests. We try to seat couples and families side-by-side as much as possible. We cannot guarantee particular seating as it is often dictated by our FAA approved “weight and balance” program. However, visibility from every seat is excellent in both our A-Stars and Eco-Stars, since there are no cabin partitions that would block part of the view as is the case on other types of helicopters.
