Carlos was excellent and so was the ride! This was my second time flying with maverick and they have always been exceptional! We were able to see many waterfalls and whales along with some history of the island. Worth every penny as you get to experience the island in a way you aren’t able to without a helicopter. 10/10 will definitely be back again next year!

This snorkeling experience was the best we’ve ever been on! The crew was fantastic-always checking in on us- there was plenty of food and drink, we got to snorkel for over an hour, there were lots of picture opportunities, and they provided prescription goggles. We had a FANTASTIC experience. Highly recommend!

This was an amazing experience. The staff on the boat were super friendly and very attentive. We went to a great spot for snorkeling and enjoyed every minute. I would highly recommend this tour and would do it again if I return to Maui.

Our pilot was great, very knowledgeable about the area and made sure we were getting the most out of the flight.

Worth every dime! Courteous, friendly crew. Good timely boat and snorkel experience.
