We are located at the Kahului Airport, just past the heliport at the Private Aviation part of the airport. You can see a map on our contact page, and we email you directions in your confirmation email.
Yes! and No. We can run any of our helicopters in pretty much any configuration. Each passenger has the choice of keeping their door on. For instance, if you have a lap child, we put you both in the front seat with the door on for comfort and safety. With the great weather here in Hawaii, we generally run all our tours with the doors off; it is an unforgettable experience!
Yes, Due to FAA safety and manufacturer guidelines, we must limit our per seat weight to a maximum of 240lbs. Any couple more than 400lbs combined must purchase an extra seat at a 50% discount since we cannot safely balance the aircraft with an additional passenger.
Absolutely! Bring your DSLR, GoPro, cell phone, etc! Anything you bring requires a wrist strap or neck strap for safety. No selfie sticks allowed (nothing over 10″ long and no clamping type devices); your camera must have a positive attachment that ensures it will not fall out.
It depends on what you are after. Generally mornings are the best combination of lighting and flight conditions. If you are a hardcore photographer and want the best shots, the 7:30 departure is your flight!
Absolutely! We can plan a custom charter for you, no problem! Our smaller group tours give us the flexibility that you won’t find anywhere else!
Generally, people that are prone to motion sickness find helicopters less inducing than boats or small planes, and with the doors off, you gets lots of fresh air. If you are concerned about it, a dramamine or ginger chew before you go will help immensely.
I recommend sports mode, or shutter priority with at least a 1/1250 sec or faster exposure time.
For those that love photography, ISO 400 and a wide lens such as a 16-35 or 24-70 is best. We get pretty close 🙂
You can pay anytime, but we ask that payment be made at least 48 hours before your departure date. The link to pay is in your confirmation email that you received when you booked your tour. When you enter your card information, the system will charge your card at that time.
