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.
When booking this Blue Hawaiian Helicopters Eco-Star 30 minute tour, you need to know that it takes 4 people to confirm the flight. If there aren’t 4 guests on the tour, then they will cancel the flight and most likely upgrade your seats to a longer flight. There is no telling what that may be.
It is highly recommended that you wear a dark, solid colored shirt for any of the helicopter flights. Brightly colored clothes can cause reflections on the windows that will show up in your photos and videos.
Don’t forget your shades!

Not worth the money. You may be paying for a great tour if you get to sit in the front. However, this is a gamble. You may also not even get a window seat. Price should be adjusted for the seat you get. We left disappointed. We went from thinking we were getting a private tour of the island, to sitting in the back underwhelmed. Spend your money else where on the island. We had so many great experiences on this trip. We booked through Expedia at our hotel. This was by far the low point of our trip. Should of been the high point... 😆
Awesome experience! I was expecting to be terrified but our pilot made it feel like it was no big deal to soar over cliffs and valleys in a tiny box. He was also very knowledgeable on the area, which made the sights even more interesting. I didn't have a window seat and still felt like I didn't miss out on any views! Would highly recommend!
Really enjoyed the Maui Spectacular tour. Flew all the way around the island and over volcanic craters and water falls. Very memorable experience. A well informed and friendly staff make the whole experience painless.
Unforgettable experience! Derek was a great pilot and knowledgeable guide.
We did West Maui and Molokai on the A-Star and it was beautiful (I assume any tour will be breathtaking. Hawaii is amazing!).
It looked foggy while we were waiting to board the helicopter but it wasn't a problem once we were out there.
It sprinkled a little bit, which was really cool watching the drops slide across the windows. The highlight of the trip was hovering in front of an almost complete circle rainbow over the water.
Great trip. Pilot was knowledgeable and ran a good tour. I sat in the middle of the rear seat. Five star seats are the front and window seats in my opinion. Where dark cloths as recommended or you will have reflections on all you photos.
