Doors-Off West Maui and Molokai Helicopter Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Come and experience the only doors-off helicopter tour on Maui! Enjoy the thrill of this ride, feel the exhilaration of the wind in your hair, and see the sights of Maui and Molokai in an unforgettable way.
  • 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 at least 30 minutes 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 45-minute 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.

Great helicopter ride. The weather was perfect so this one was real special. My tip is—when you're filming at taking pictures with your phone, keep your phone tucked inside the helicopter, I mean really tucked in. If you're anywhere near the door your image will...More

Agreed! We too have found on the doors-off flight that the inside seat person does get better quality photos since there is a little less wind on the inside seats. Thank you for the feedback and for choosing to fly with us!
