Helicopter Tours in Kahului are only possible because of the presence of the Kahului Airport. The Kahului Airport is the main one on the island of Maui. It receives both international and interisland flights. Right beside the Kahului Airport is the Kahului Heliport. This is where the helicopters leave from for each tour. Because of the central location of the Heliport, they can go anywhere on Maui and the neighboring islands of Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe. Most of them focus on only one of the regions of Maui, like east, south, north or west Maui.

These Helicopter Tours will definitely give you a view of Maui that not everyone has seen. You will understand why Maui is called the Valley Island. With the awe-inspiring natural beauty of Mt. Haleakala, the valleys and lush rainforest of East Maui and the gorgeous beauty of Maui, you will not want to go back down to the ground. The pilot will give you details about the places you are flying over.

There are different helicopters that are used for the Helicopter Tours in Kahului. There’s the A-Star, the Robinson R44, and the Whisper Star. The A-Star is kind of like the golden standard for helicopters in Maui Helicopter Tours. You get 180 degrees visibility with this one and it seats 6 people, 7 including the pilot. The Robinson R44 is for the people who want a more exciting ride. This helicopter only has 4 seats but it is the only one that can be flown with doors on or doors off. The Whisper Stars are the upgraded version of the A-Star. They are wider and allows more room inside the vehicle.

Here is a list of the different options for Helicopter Tours in Kahului.
