Unforgettable experience
Melissa_T

This was an epic experience! Bought for my husband as a surprise. The scenery is magical and there is no way you could see all we saw without doing this. Doors off was amazing, but very windy if you’re on the outerside. All the staff were great but special mention must go to Brodie, our pilot, who made the experience unforgettable! Highly recommend a helicopter ride with kauai air.

Only Cell Phones Allowed

First off, they only allow you to carry your cell phone on the flight. Nothing else. And it has to be secured around your neck in a lanyard/strap that they provide. All pockets must be emptied. No GoPro's, digital cameras or any other portable handheld recording devices of any kind allowed. Even if they're securely strapped to you. BUT, there are video cameras inside and outside of the chopper that record the entire flight, including pilot commentary. I did not know this ahead of time. Wish I did. Either I missed the info, or didn't see it documented anywhere, but it was never mentioned to me during the preflight briefing. I didn't learn of this until after we landed and went back to the main hangar. I'm a professional travel videographer and I have a 4K DJI Go portable stabilizer cam with a wrist strap and they said no way. I was worried I wouldn't be able to record the flight at all. And I don't prefer to take video with my cell phone. I use a stabilizer because it's super windy with the doors off. So my advice is, leave all your recording gadgets behind, even your cell phone, unless you wanna use it for still images. Just sit back and enjoy the entire thing and purchase the video afterwards ($60 for the video and a photo of you with the chopper). Totally worth it. I wish I knew it was being recorded ahead of time, hence only 4 stars. Otherwise the flight was awesome, chopper was safe and the pilot was amazing.

We canceled our trip after seeing the cargo trailer they use as an office, seeing the one FILTHY ports-John , finding out we wouldn’t be sitting together, having it delayed for half an hour, getting there and finding out we would have to wait an additional 45 minutes for 3 other people when we thought we had a private tour for the 3 of us and finding out that it is extremely cold and windy on the flight!!!

Doors-off, Thumbs-up, Look-down!

Wow! We have been to Kauai many times and have soaked in Mother Nature’s gifts, but what an amazing experience flying “doors-off” over the whole island and seeing Kauai’s beauty from a limitless view. Our pilot, Adam Chase, gave us knowledgeable narration coupled with an awesome set of tunes. Now when we hear The Doors, The Rolling Stones, CCR, and The Spencer Davis Group, we will be transported back to the beauty of the garden island. We’ll do this again, for sure!
