Unbelievable views
, Sep 2021
The company was very professional. The experience was great. The pilot was an informative narrator for the flight. I liked that he flew the helicopter so both sides could view the sights making it so there were no “bad” seats. I felt safe and comfortable. The views were unbelievable.
Nice flight

Nice flight. We see every important site on the Island. Very safe pilot, veteran of Vietnam war. Weather was nice, not too cloudy.
Heaven on Earth!

Very professional staff. Comfortable seats and we felt safe. Despite the noise of the engine, etc. the headphones were sufficient in cutting as much noise out, as possible. Our pilot, Russell, did a great job and we could hear him very clearly. The windows were great and we could could take great pictures even from the back seats. Kauai is beautiful!

Took the 9am ride with perfect conditions. Best way to end our Kauai trip after hiking around Have a and Waimea Canyon parks. Views from the middle back seat were obstructed but still enjoyable, definitely jealous of the front 2 seats. Pilot still did his best to manuever the helicopter in such a way that everyone was able to get good views. Every single moment we were in absolute awe. Ride actually lasted 35-40min rather than 55.

An awesome experience!! We saw more than we could’ve seen in a week of driving all over the island. Pilot was very knowledgeable and competent.

I agree! Really the best way to see Kauai is by air. That Napali coat and Waimea canyon. Wow breathtaking! Thank you for the review
Definitely do!

Amazing views, crew was very nice and helpful, and the pilot was great to listen to. Would absolutely do again! My only critique is just covid specific, so does not impact the overall experience of this adventure. The crew didn't talk about the importance of masks during the flight and did not tell a couple of passengers boarding to put their mask on before take off.
