We took a flight with Evan at Magnum Helicopters back in February 2020. We had an amazing flight! Evan was a great helicopter pilot and tour guide. The flight was definitely worth it. Everyone working here was super friendly. We were picked up from our hotel and driven back

Thanks for your review, Captain. Seems that you got in just under the coronavirus wire...we're closed now, as are pretty much all activities in the state. But we hope to be back flying soon. Mahalo for choosing Magnum.

'Glad that you had a good time, Russ. And I'm happy that you were able to get your phone extricated from that case. Those cases don't relinquish the phones without a fight. But then, I guess that's the idea. Thanks for a great review and for the five stars.

When it says to dress warm, they mean it. Wear pants and long sleeves. Tie hair back tightly, a ponytail really gets tossed around up there. You may want to bring a brush if you have additional plans afterwards. The views are EXCEPTIONAL! Front seats get the best view but the

Thank you, Molly, for your comment and rating. Yup, even in Hawai you'll get chilly at altitude and the wind can do a number on untied hair. But you flew for the view and I'm glad that you were not disappointed. A hui hou.
