Blue Hawaiian Helicopters – Eco-Star West Maui – 30 Minutes
$192.00 BOOK NOW
Blue Hawaiian Helicopters Eco-Star West Maui tour is a unique, express style tour. The most remote place on Maui is in the West Maui Mountains, it’s also the wettest. There are no roads, no trails, nothing but towering cliffs, deep valleys, and waterfalls. Pigs are the only thing that populates the interior of the West Maui Mountains. You probably won’t see one though as the forest canopy is so dense that it is nearly impossible to see the ground. There are 3 waterfall highlights on this tour. The first one is the Wall of Tears hidden deep in the back of the Waihee Valley which is the source for the Waiehu River. The Waiehu River runs through Iao Valley and provides most of the drinking water for Central Maui.
The second one is the Keyhole Waterfall. The Keyhole Waterfall is tuck into the back of a side canyon off the Waihee Valley. It’s a sliver of a Canyon that like all canyons end nowhere. The difference is the towering double tier waterfall half way down on the 1200-foot beauty. The tier is so large that it has a name – Violet Lake. Though getting down to it for a swim would be a chore and then some. How this canyon was ever found, let alone hiked too, is beyond understanding.
The third waterfall highlights in this helicopter ride on Maui is the Honokahua Waterfall filmed in Jurassic Park. Located at the end of the longest canyon on Maui it takes 2 days just to reach it by hiking up the stream. Falling over 900 feet into a clear pool, it’s awesome.

This was definitely a cool experience. Getting up close to some really tall waterfalls and sea cliffs, flying through a huge dormant volcano crater, and getting to do it all in a helicopter was definitely unforgettable. Our pilot was really nice and I did enjoy his commentary during the flight explaining some of the history of the islands. Overall a great experience. However it does leave you wanting more. I wish we would have explored the island of Molokai more than did instead of going back and touring Maui at the end. Other than that I think it was a great time.
10/10 - incredible experience. Informative and engaging pilot. We saw wales and he took his time panning left and right so everyone could have a good view. Overall really enjoyed it. Our 3 and 1 year old both fell asleep so can’t say much for them 😂
Definitely in my top five best experiences! The pilot was very knowledgeable about the island and its history felt safe the whole time flying. If you really want to see how beautiful the island is this is one of the very few best ways to get it done and I highly recommend Hawaiian blue helicopter tours! Extremely happy with my experience!
Fabulous flight with Glenda. Did the Dawn Patrol flight and had a wonderful experience. Glenda was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and has a very calming voice. She was an excellent tour guide. The helicopter was very nice and we had fantastic views. We had some wind and rain and it did not phase the pilot. All the staff were great! Would highly recommend Blue Hawaiian.
We had a great flight with Bo Brown our pilot. It was so amazing and beautiful to see the Big Island from the air. I grew up flying and he could really fly that helicopter. He got us close to the new lava beds and the water falls, it was great. It was worth every penny.
