Sunshine Helicopters Takes you Away
Fly back into the lands forgotten by time with this impressive Sunshine Helicopters West Maui and Molokai 45 minute tour Discover ancient forests where there is no path to follow, no man has ever stepped foot into this lost world deep inside the West Maui Mountains and Molokai. View the tallest sea cliffs in the world on the back side of Molokai towering 3000’ above sea level. Explore hidden valleys with thundering waterfalls tucked deep into the canyons and valleys of Molokai and Maui. This is a Maui helicopter flight for the ages as you view time as it was hundreds of thousands of years ago. Literally, unspoiled, and untouched by humans. Sunshine Helicopters will fly you across the Pailolo Channel to view Maui’s neighboring island Molokai. Fasten your seatbelts for a luxury adventure by air.
The flight emphasis on this Sunshine Helicopters West Maui and Molokai is WATERFALLS! The highlights of this flight include the Wall of tears, the Keyhole Waterfall, Honokahua Valley Jurassic Park Waterfall in the West Maui Mountains. The Molokai portion highlights the Sea Cliffs, Halawa Valley Waterfall, Kalaupapa Leper Colony and the interior of Molokai. At one time, most helicopter companies had a short flight of 30 minutes of just the West Maui Mountains, but over time the flight declined in demand as people wanted longer flights, or as one customer said “More Bang For My Buck.” And that is what eventfully created the Sunshine Helicopters West Maui and Molokai 45 minute flight. See the Sunshine Helicopters Hana and Haleakala Tour for other available options.
Safety Comes First
Most visitors are interested in helicopter safety. Sunshine Helicopters has a perfect safety record. Considering how long they have been flying on Maui, that is quite an impressive feat. It’s a good thing when the helicopter company you are choosing has returned every guest in the same condition as when they arrived. Not every company can boost that, but Sunshine can!
We recommend that you wear a dark, solid colored shirt for this helicopter flight. Brightly colored or white clothes can cause reflections on the windows that will show up in your photos and videos. Don’t forget your sunglasses!
A live action video is filmed while you are boarding, the flight and when you land. The video is available for purchase. I would recommend that you purchase the video. It would make a great conversation when showing your friends and family after you return home.

Impressive. Very well organized and awesome views. Ears can hurt as in a plane and feel clogged for hours. The tour including volcano crater + rain forest was really interesting.
These guys are awesome. I loved the trip and the staff couldn't be nicer. We had to change to a different tour because of weather but they were transparent and friendly about it. It was the first thing we had done as a couple since our son was born a year before. They just really made it comfortable. The ride, the instructions, the communication, everything was top notch.
So we book the flight and it turns out that when we get there are helicopter had an issue with one of the lights. To most people they probably would have got mad and said it's just a light why can't we just fly anyway. To me however it gave me satisfaction knowing that these people take every malfunction seriously. Me my girlfriend my cousin and his girlfriend all got to fly 2 hours later with the satisfaction of knowing we were flying in a safe helicopter. Other than having to wait (which we understand), the people here are very friendly very informative and it was a great experience...
Amazing experience from beginning to end. The staff, pilot and helicopter were all fantastic! The pilots knowledge of the islands and their history made for a great narrative as we flew around Maui, Molokai and Lanai. This is something I will look forward to doing every time I go back to Maui. Thanks Sunshine Helicopters for such a rad experience!!!
Overall, the tour was OK. The helicopter tour guide felt kinda like we were getting a stream of canned facts. The helicopter itself didn't have as much visibility as with other helicopters I have flown in, and my camera kept focusing on the glass/reflection rather than what I was wanting to take pictures of. The flight path wasn't particularly interestesting compared to my previous helicopter ride as well, which was kind of a dissapointment. Also, the microphones were not very good at picking up our voices, and I could barely hear anybody else talking (as well as the headset not being overly comfortable). My recommendation would be to get a fantastic tour and lesson on how to fly helicopters over at Maui helicopter academy, which was fantastic (we could decide where we wanted to go) and would love to fly with them again. The bus tour back to the airport was fairly good, tour guide was friendly and had a lot of native knowledge, and told stories from his culture, and shared local knowledge of the the areas we were traveling through, and botanical identification. We stopped at a few different places, and swam in a small waterfall along the way.
