DOORS-OFF PRIVATE TOUR! It was well worth the money! My husband and I did a private tour for one-hour and had the best experience of our lives! It's an amazing experience. If you get motion sickness at all, definitely take medicine beforehand! I occasionally get nausea from motion, and almost vomited on the tour. (Don't worry - they provide bags:)).

We had two helicopters, doors off, with Evan and Blake. Without a doubt, the best experience of our lives!

My wife, sister in law, and I went on a doors off tour and it was the most amazing thing any of us did during our time on the island. We also did a Napali coast Catamaran cruise and hiked Wimea Canyon out to the coast, both of which i recommend and were amazing as well. However, this helicopter tour was hands down the most breathtaking views you can get and I highly, highly recommend this to anyone who can stomach flying in a helicopter. I don't remember our pilots name but he was great. Very knowledgeable and thorough. This is a must do in my opinion.

From the minute we stepped into the helicopter our pilot Blake made us feel very safe, relaxed, informed and very entertained. His skill, professionalism and love of his job was very evident the minute we met him. We loved the privacy of the 3 seat helicopter, being into photography it was ideal for taking pictures from either side. I’d also highly recommend doors off for your flight, we did and it was very safe, exhilarating and a lot of fun. We’re very happy we selected Mauna Loa, and we would fly with them anytime.

My husband and I are visiting Kauai for the first time. We booked the doors off tour which was very scary for me but I’m so glad we did!! Evan was our pilot and he was fabulous!! He puts you at ease as you fly deep into the canyons right next to towering waterfalls. You learn about the history of the island and points of interest. I highly recommend seeing Kauai this way and absolutely thru Mauna Lau tours. You won’t regret it.
