“Wow. Thought I would be scared but glad I did it”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

I hate flying and heights but went for it. I had the front passenger seat ( best seat ) and the views were breath taking. Amazing to see all the waterfalls, canyons and shorelines. Jurassic park was filmed here and you see landscapes from the movie all around you. Untouched by man. This is something you could not do anywhere else and see so much beauty.

“Awesome views”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Second trip to Kauai and decided to take the helicopter tour. Saw awesome views that can't be seen by boat or foot. Pilot was friendly and very informative. Spring for the extra $50 to get a front row seat next to the pilot. Great views. Well worth the price. Book early for the date/time you want.

“Best View of the Island”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We enjoyed our flight of the Kauai. It really gives you a feel of the diversity of the different areas of the island.
The pre-flight booking was easy but I would recommend booking early and even before you arrive in Kauai to get the time slot you want. They were close to sold out by Monday for that week.
Definitely worth adventuring out and seeing all the beauty in Kauai!

“Do it.”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

I was a little apprehensive since I'd never been in a helicopter before but knowing that this is the best way to see the Waimea canyon and the NaPali coast I had to do it. We had a great pilot, Bogart, who briefed us on island history the entire time pointing out landmarks. We were inside the volcano crater with a dozen waterfalls. It was fabulous!

My traveling companion and I were grinning ear to ear for hours afterwards!
