Our helicopter ride to the rain forest was amazing! The views were spectacular! The helicopters do very well in high winds, so if you’re worried about that, don’t be! Our pilot/guide Rick was also very awesome. He offered to take pictures for us together on our honeymoon and was very knowledgeable about the history and land.

Our original flight had to be altered due to cloud cover. Instead of landing for 30 minutes we had an additional 30-minute flight time and it couldn't have been better. The views for the waterfalls and reef were exceptional.

Very smooth flight, Rick was an excellent pilot and very knowledgeable. Beautiful scenery. Highly recommend Maverick.

Love the narration as we drove the Road to Hana! Found all the stops along the way easily…

Everything went well! The guide was very informative and the sights were beautiful
