      Amazing views
      This was my first time on a helicopter tour, and so glad Maui was my first experience! Our pilot, Eddie, was top notch. He expertly guided the chopper into valleys and over the tallest sea cliffs giving every person on the tour a great vantage point for pictures. The views were amazing. I am prone to motion sickness but took medicine for motion sickness and was fine for the 60 minute tour. Well worth the expense and will have memories for a lifetime!

      Must do!
      We actually did the Hawaiian Odyssey tour with Felix as our pilot and guide. He was great and this was my favorite part of our vacation on Maui. We selected this flight to see things we wouldn’t see any other way and my son really wanted to see the WW II shipwreck. Up close and personal in the valleys with so many beautiful waterfalls. We also saw large rays in the coral reef. My son did forget to ask how fast we were going though.

      Amazing flight
      We spent 3 weeks traveling around Hawaii and this was by far the best thing we did. Eddie our pilot was awesome. I was a little hesitant because of the price but it was well worth it. The scenery was so beautiful and we saw many waterfalls and cliffs.

      A Must-Do in Maui!
      We eagerly anticipated this excursion and it didn’t disappoint!! Maverick Helicopters was professional and friendly from start to finish. Our helicopter pilot and tour guide, Nick, was fantastic- from getting familiar with the helicopter and what to expect at take off, keeping the helicopter ride from being too bumpy, narrating the amazing views, to giving us great information on Hawaiian culture and history with the landscape. We would love to book with Maverick again and would recommend this trip to all of our friends and family. Can’t say enough about our West Maui/Molokai trip!!!

      Amazing experience
      I rarely write any reviews, but this one is certainly worth it. Did the Molokay Tour and it was truly and remarkably outstanding. This is a once-in-a-lifetime thing to do. Jake has been a great pilot and tour guide in one. There are some review about different seat quality. I was seated in the back in the middle which is supposedly the worst seat possible. I still had amazing views and would always do it again, do don't get fooled by those other reviews. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT MISS THIS!

      Don’t Get Hung Up On Price; Worth Every Penny
      When we booked our excursions for our family of five we did a lot of research and found Maverick to be top rated all around. This helicopter experience is worth every Penny and you will have no regrets even with a high price tag. It was mixed with a bit of thrills, amazing beauty in canyons, waterfalls so close you could see the mist and flying above whales in the ocean with their babies is an experience the whole family claimed was one of their top experiences in life. The pilot was confident, experienced and made us all feel safe for all of our first ever helicopter experience. We can’t wait to book our next one on a return 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.

    I have taken a helicopter ride (except during the covid-19 shutdown) on nearly every visit to the islands since 1975. That is 102 visits to date. Of all those flights over the years, the Hana Rainforest Helicopter Flight with Landing in Maui was the best by far!!! The pilot was exceptional, and his narrative was both accurate and on point. Maverick Helicopters purchased 90 acres of land so remote that it is too dangerous to walk in by foot, except by the most skilled of hikers. There are fruit trees, a landing space, and a stream running through the valley floor on the Maverick property. While at the landing, passengers are offered champagne. After returning to the field, I was so impressed with the trip, I bought a t-shirt. For me, there is true veracity in the statement, "...been there, got the t-shirt..."

    Our pilot was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. He called out the names of the waterfalls, cliffs, rock formations, and areas we saw from the Helicopter. He explained everything before he made any flight maneuvers which allowed us all to enjoy the ride. He even turned the helicopter from side to side to allow everyone in the helicopter a view of the scenery. The secluded landing zone was beautifully maintained and allowed many opportunities for photographs. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

    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!

    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!!!

    This was the highlight of our week on the cruise around the 4 main islands of Hawaii! We booked through the cruise and while it is expensive, it is worth every penny! We had a family of 6 (2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 teen boys) so we were split between 3 helicopters total b/c of the number on the tour. Our family was with the pilots Felix and Nick. We loved them both! (Tell Felix the Smith family from NC says HELLO!) Tour was AMAZING! Our teen sons will talk about this for the rest of their lives.
    Great amazing views, both Nick and Felix shared stories, pointed out cool things and made the whole experience feel safe and secure!
    The rain forest landing was the best! Beautiful remote area - lots of tropical plants and Felix cut a fresh fruit for us right from the tree!
    Again, of all our excursions in Hawaii, this was our top fave!

    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!

    Everything was as advertised or better. Took my daughter for a tour and was the highlight of our trip. I suggest a tour with a landing, if you are able. We landed in the rainforest, drank champagne, walked along streams and beautiful plants, the took off again and finished the tour. Tone was an excellent pilot and tour guide; very knowledgable. Highly recommend!
