Shout out to Rick Rickauscus, our Maverick helicopter pilot! This trip was amazing, in fact it was probably our favorite thing in Maui. I have a fear of flying but normally it’s a necessary evil to getting places, however I did not share this before our flight. From the tone of his voice to his playlist of music he was able to soothe any nerves. He explained all the places of interest below and would explain anything he did beforehand..such as turning us around to provide additional photo ops, and this was truly the smoothest ride you could possibly imagine. The landing In the rainforest was again incredible and if he had been balancing a cup of coffee on the dash it would not have splashed or spilled a drop. On landing he proceeded to pour everyone a glass of champagne and lead us on a tour with names and descriptions of all the plants and fruits we were seeing in the area. He was happy to be the photographer for us as well and you could tell everyone’s comfort was paramount on this tour. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone….even those who might be a little apprehensive about a helicopter ride…this was so the highlight of our trip!

We loved our captain, Rick, and the rainforest landing was unique! It's not ideal that as a family of four, you can't have your own helicopter--my party was placed all in the back row of the helicopter, without the same wonderful views as the front (and for the same price). Plus, you're technically inside with two other people, which is not ideal for COVID-19, but at least everyone was masked. Rick had interesting commentary while we were flying and even found some wild fruit for us at the rainforest stop off. :)

This is the way to see the waterfalls on the Road to Hana and experience an easily accessible rainforest. Rick, our pilot, is a great host, providing intermittent commentary and allowing us time to soak in the gorgeous views. When we landed in the rainforest, we celebrated with bubbly and snacked on some of the fruits available there. He shared interesting information about the rainforest, was knowledgeable and attentive to the needs of all passengers. The ground crew was well organized, friendly and clearly communicated everything we needed to know.

Our original booking was canceled because of the weather but we were able to catch another booking a day after. The experience was absolutely magical, the views were spectacular, the rainforest landing was amazing. Shout out to Eddie our Pilot who was super informative, friendly and knowledgable. This was the highlight of our trip, we booked through Getyourguide but I would recommend visit Maverick helicopters website to do your booking instead. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!stop thinking about it and book this experience because you wont regret it! we did a boat tour, land tour and an air tour of the island, this was our favorite.

COVID-19 precautions: Each Heli has 7 seats (including the pilot), everyone wears a mask while on the Heli, once you get off in the middle of the forrest you can take the mask off but keep 6 feet apart from the other parties. Everything was clean, champagne is part of the experience (when you lang in the rainforest). We only had another couple with us (total of 5 people including the pilot).

We flew with Jake who provided a very informative flight to see the waterfalls along the Hana coastline. Flights are currently limited, so a trip over the volcano was not available. The chopper makes a 20 minute stop at their own private spot in the jungle to view the local flora and cultural artifacts (taro gardens). Beautiful scenery.

The Hana Rainforest Helicopter Flight was an absolutely AWESOME experience. It started with check in. I read that the max number of passengers was 7, and counting all the people, I realized that we were at 14 so I figured we would be split into 2 groups. I was so pleasantly suprised that we were split into 3 groups! Our flight had one other couple so it was very intimate. We sat in the front, then changed seats after the rainforest landing so all of us had the chance to be in front.
This was my first time on a helicopter and I was a little nervous. I had no reason to worry! The pilot, Tone, covered all the safety info, and take off and flight were all smooth. The views were stunning and being able to see areas that you cannot access by land was great! The landing in the rainforest was beautiful. Champagne was served and we were able to walk around. Tone was full of information, both in flight and in the rainforest. He answered all questions and gave background and history of the island and the area. Totally worth the money and I would recommend it 100%.

Excellent customer service from beginning to end. Our pilot, Felix, was extremely professional, competent and lots of fun. He explained every step of the safety procedures and was a great tour guide, answering questions and he knew every detail of the areas we flew over. Landing in the rainforest was so much fun, and the spot where we landed was like the Garden of Eden. I loved the Awapuhi plant and the lovely moisturizer it produces! We snacked on bananas and toasted with champagne. This was the trip of a lifetime for me as I have a fear of flying and I am now over it!!!

I took my two children (both age 12) on the Hana Rainforest Helicopter Flight with Maverick. It was a great experience, and one of our favorite things we did in Maui! It is expensive, but the small groups mean that you will get a lot of attention. There are three seats in the front and four in the back. The views are amazing and it's fun to get out and explore a bit of the rainforest halfway through the trip. Maverick seems like a very professional company and everything went smoothly. We highly recommend it!

As someone with severe fear of heights and flying in general, I was hesitant to try a helicopter ride, but thanks to Captain Jake - I was put at ease and felt extremely safe and in very capable hands. Jake happens to be from Colorado, where our party was from, and so we made our first all Colorado flight into the rainforest of Maui. The scenery is breathtaking, and truly can only be experienced in a helicopter. I highly recommend this trip - the price is worth this once in a lifetime experience!

This was a gift for my wife. She had never ridden in a helicopter before. She loved the flight. Jake was our pilot and he took off and landed very gently. The rain forest tour was great. Jake was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Jake also made sure we all got a view of all the great places we flew over. Maverick helicopters is a great company and they take care of you.
