I'm giving this a 3 star because the company didn't ask the other guests to follow the rules of no bright colors. My view was obscured by bright white Adidas logos and bright shorts. I was even ok with being jammed into the back of...More

We did this from a Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tour. The view from above and up close was wonderful! I do not know for sure whether you can get there any other way, but our views were great!

This was amazing, the whole helicopter ride was amazing, but I think that jurassic falls was the best part. Being a huge 'Jurassic park' movie fan, this was amazing. Even my Cousin who didn't watch Jurassic Park loved it!

Shoes that are comfortable and your not afraid to get muddy. A light jacket in case it starts to rain. A small backpack for water and a snack.
