Even on a cloudy day, the flight was incredible! - Incredible, once in a lifetime experience! I loved every minute of the entire trip. You see so much of the island and the views are spectacular. I felt safe the entire time. We went on a cloudy day which was fun. Our pilot, Herbert, was very informative and enjoyable throughout the flight.

Very thrill seeking - This was a great experience for my boyfriend and I! We went in March and it was colder than we thought, so make sure you’re nice and warm! Although I was scared out of my mind, and counting down the minutes until we made it back to land, the sights were beautiful and the pilot ( Brandon) told us a little bit about each and every sighting. Also the people in the office were just amazing to talk to. Checking in and out was easy! They took pictures of us in the helicopter and outside.

THE best HAWAII experience EVER! - THIS is the tour you want to do... but I'll will say, you have to be up for a little thrill in the sky. Our pilot Andrew gave our whole family an experience of a lifetime. The entire crew at Magnum was first class. Thanks to Magnum Helicopters and Andrew for showing us Hawaii like no other.
