Previous reviews refer to this tour as “bucket list” and “once in a lifetime experience.” We completely agree. In the last 8 years, we’ve been on vacation 1-2 times a year and always book many excursions enjoying activities and exploring islands. After approximately 80 Caribbean...More

Save you money for this trip to Niihau. It is soooo worth it. You can ride a horse, or zip line anywhere but never will you be able to land on this private island outside of this tour.

Our trip yesterday was fantastic. Everything was professional yet casual from our check-in and safety briefing at Kaumakani to our pilot and flight over and back. After observing the Niihau from a distance for years it was very exciting to be able to walk the...More

We were a couple and they matched us up with a single and another couple. We gave them the dates we would be in Kauai and they were able to make it work. I gave them the dates two months in advance. Had an awesome time.
