Off-door helicopter tour. - The pilot was awesome! He was friendly and knowledgeable. It was amazing how close he could get us to the mountains. It's something that we've never experienced before, and will always remember. Thank you so much. Laura and Dorene.

Priceless views, wonderful ride - *Disclaimer: usually I avoid writing reviews unless it’s super good, super bad or some rational incentive. Here, writing review to get the video but in any case would have written the review for being a very good experience. Prompt staff, clear instructions, wonderful pilot, safe flight. Totally worth the view as most of the island is not reachable by road. If never been in open door helicopter, it can be initially scary, but can get used to it pretty quickly. Pilot made sure to communicate through the time, and played very appropriate songs in the background depending on location (best one was the Jurassic park track with the opening waterfall scene-location). Also would definitely recommend a light jacket. Perfect for 2 people. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing helicopter tour!! - Awesome views of the entire island of Kauai! We saw many waterfalls and a bunch of circle rainbows! Don't be nervous about going on a rainy day - that is when you see the amazing rainbows. Be advised - it is cold and super windy with the doors off, definitely wear a coat and warm clothes. Got tons of fabulous pictures and video (make sure your battery is fully charged!) Our pilot was super informative and gave us great narration and details about the different parts of the island. Check-in was quick and easy. Tip: if you have long hair you definitely have to pull it back into a ponytail/bun but also wear a buff to keep the wind from blowing pieces of hair into your face! Would do it again 💯!!!

Wonderful tour! - We took the 1 hour helicopter tour of the Island of Kauai, and it was spectacular. Guy (owner and chopper pilot) was an expert narrator, and pointed out many different sites and gave narration on different things of interest as we were flying along. The Napali coast and "Jurassic Falls" were just gorgeous, and we were able to spot mountain goats and a whale. Guy even told us about the sea turtles that swim ashore every night on Po'ipu beach, which we were then able to see ourselves. All in all, a wonderful tour with an excellent guide. The only disappointment was not seeing the dinosaurs at "Jurassic Falls"!!

Private helicopter trip - Our pilot Guy was fantastic. Smooth flight into absolutely beautiful areas of the island. Guy took us up close and personal to numerous waterfalls and to the Napali coast. My wife and I loved that this tour was private for the two of us. Definitely worth the extra money. Loved the doors off!!
