Maui 60 Min Circle Island Deluxe - Sunshine Helicopter

Based upon reputation in the industry, Sunshine Helicopters has certainly earned the respect of all helicopter tour companies in the State. The owner and founder of Sunshine Helicopters is Ross Scott who became familiar with helicopter aviation in his years as a gunship helicopter pilot in the Vietnam War. At the end of his tour of duty he came back home to Alaska where he managed an enormous aircraft company including 50 airplanes and 30 helicopters. He later moved his extensive aviation experience and expertise to Hawaii decades ago where he opened Sunshine Helicopters. Today his company flies the popular A-Star Helicopters as well as the more advanced FX-Star Helicopters which are known as 'Whisper Stars'.
During this 60 minute activity you will see all of Maui. This includes Haleakala Crater, Hana, and West Maui.
For our guests needing assistance with a wheelchair or walker please inform vendor at time of reservation so that you can be properly accommodated.

Debra Walker
We had a great trip. The weather and the scenery were truely spectacular. The pilot did an excellent job of giving us great views and describing what we were seeing along with the history of the area.



Sophia Mao
I was on the island for my brother's wedding. I booked one whisper helicopter tour, taking my 80 yrs old father, along with other guests from the wedding. The ride was smooth and some minor fun stomach moments. Everyone, including my father on the front seat next to the pilot, enjoyed it tremendously. I recommend this experience 100%.



Anna Masch
It was a trip of a life time for myself and my 82 year old Mom and it did not disappoint.
We managed to get our original date on a rainy day and the flight was cancelled because of weather. We re-scheduled and it turned out to be a blue sky beautiful day. The people are great at Sunshine Helicopters. We went had a wonderful time.
