  • Wear solid dark-colored clothing. Our helicopters are temperature controlled so dress comfortably but wear dark clothing. This will cause less reflection in the windows to allow a clear view of all the sights.
  • 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.
  • Bring your camera or cell phone (on airplane mode) to take photos and video of your tour.


  • 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 not go SCUBA diving within 24 hours or SNUBA 12 hours prior to your tour. You may snorkel or swim prior to your tour and there is no risk in SCUBA or SNUBA after your helicopter tour.
  • FAA regulations require us to weigh all guests and bags at check-in. We do this discreetly for your privacy. Please be accurate as possible when providing weight information.
  • For each guest weighing more than 240 pounds, an adjacent empty seat purchase is required. The charge for an adjacent empty seat is 50% off of the regular tour price. This open seat ensures the comfort for you and all of our guests on your flight.
  • Seating for parties of more than 6, or weighing a combined 1000lbs, will be seated across multiple aircrafts. Please provide accurate body weights as our ability to execute tours depends on this.
  • Front Row Seating Policy: Combined front row seat weight must be under 470 lbs for Eco-Star tours and individual passenger weights must be under 240 lbs. Should actual weights during check-in exceed any of these limits guests will be accommodated in other seats and a refund will be made for the premium upgrade fee. Front row passengers must occupy their own seats and must be able to refrain from interfering with the pilot and instrumentation. At least one of the front seat occupants must be 15 years of age or older and capable of performing emergency aircraft egress procedures. Lap children cannot be accommodated in the front row. In the event of an emergency front row passengers must be able to receive instructions in English and be physically capable of operating exit doors.

This is for me the perfect tour: 1) it is a 60 minutes tour 2) you don’t get to spend $400 for a fantastic helicopter ride 3) It is one of the few tours that shows you not only the west side of the island but the east side as well.

I wanted a tour that shows me all the main attractions of Maui. I called for information and after explaining to the representative what I wanted to do, he recommended me this tour as the first option. I’m glad I followed his advise- this was exactly what I asked for.

Very comfortable helicopter, the pilot was very knowledgable about the Hawaiian History. The customer service was great, not to mention that the views of tropical forests, waterfalls and the deep valleys of the West Maui Mountains make all the difference.

It was our 1st time in a helicopter. What a great experience! Fantastic scenery and close up views. The flight was gentle and the pilot always told us all when he was about to bank a turn. Very knowledgeable pilot and he knew a lot about the history of the island. What a wonderful experience and well worth the money we spent. We’ll remember this ride for a long long time.
