About

Highlights
  • 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 IS AN ABSOLUT MUST for your trip to Maui an we highly recommed it!! I was a bit afraid of the open doors, but it turned out to be an incredible experience, that I will never forget. It´s absolutely worth the price!

This was our favorite thing in Maui. This might not be for everyone- it is a high adrenaline ride with the doors off. It was beautiful and we saw things only able to be seen from a helicopter. Pilot was seriously amazing.

This was a great experience for our family! You will see waterfalls, mountains and the coast only accessible by helicopter. We are so happy we did this. It is windy up there and cool, that is the reason for nothing in your pockets and having to wear the goggles provided and jacket provided. Highly recommend this tour!

It was incredible! Air Maui staff was very friendly and helpful, our pilot Richy was great, they play Hawaiian music through the noise cancellation headphones which really added to the experience. Also, extra money for the doors-off ride is definitely worth it. Try to get an edge seat if possible!

Do be afraid of the doors off, it really made the experience that much better. The music and pilots narration along with the incredible views really makes you forget about the heights. No glares on pictures from window. It even rained during part of our flight and we barely got wet. This is must do when in Maui and the only helicopter ride to book.

Thank you! We agree the doors off flight is definitely a staff favorite to get those unobstructed views! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time here in the islands.

We did the doors off west Maui Mountains and Molokai 45 minute helicopter tour. This was absolutely incredible.

Doors off was definitely a bit scary but well worth it for the views and pictures! If you are nervous sit in the middle seat. Our pilot was great and lots of knowledge about the area. Headphones playing music for the duration of the flight and an option to purchase a video of the flight afterwards.
This is expensive but a once in a lifetime experience would definitely recommend air maui.

Agreed that the doors off is definitely a rush and might not be for everyone but it is so fun if you are up for some wind! Thank you so much for the recommendation!
