We reserved this activity on-line a month before arriving in Kauai and was able to take advantage of discounted rate for 3 adults. Instructions say wear black, to avoid reflections on helicopter windows, which we did. We were given the 11am tour. I considered ourselves very lucky that day because the sky cleared up for our outstanding viewing pleasure. Barrett,... More

First, the staff here are amazing! We managed to get terribly lost on the way to Lihue and were late for our flight time. They were able to get us on the next tour, and couldn't have been nicer. We flew with Scotty G and he was a great guide. This is truly one of most memorable things I have... More

I was hesitant, I can't ride a Ferris wheel without getting queasy, boy was I wrong, the way the staff prepares you, the demonstrations then getting strapped into the helicopter, I was completely at ease. The views are phenomenal, the skies were clear and our pilot explained everything in sight. A must do trip when you are unable to drive... More

It was cheaper to book our excursion from home than with the cruise. The people were knowledgeable and helpful and the airport was easy to get to get to. The pilot gave everybody on both sides of the helicopter an opportunity to take good pictures of the lava flow. It was a beautiful day to fly.

We took the whole family, two adults and two kids 10 and 13. What a great start to the vacation. The island, the history, the views, and of course the crew. First class from the time you walk in the door. Mark is a very knowledgeable pilot and made our tour very enjoyable while in the air.

I was so scared to get on a helicopter but from the moment I walked in, everyone was trying to keep me relaxed. By the time I was in the air a few minutes I was at ease. I enjoyed a smooth ride while our pilot explained details of the island. It was comfortable and air conditioned. I highly recommend... More

This was one of the best things we did! It is the great way to view the island because so much of it is inaccessible and its beauty is amazing! Our pilot, Geoffrey, was informative and handled the helicopter with such ease. He made sure everyone got a good view. We could have stayed up there all day.

Tips: Leave your hotel/resort early. Despite a short distance, traffic in Lihue can slow you down. Bring only your wallet and cell phone (and/or small camera), they do have free lockers to lock up your belongings, but they won't let you take anything else in the helicopter, so don't bother bringing it. Review: Most of Kauai is not accessible by... More

Best helicopter tour I've done!!! Our guide Brodie was fantastic and personable made sure we were informed along the way. The views are stunning, I was lucky enough to be in the front on the window side so had some amazing views!!!! Only downside toward the end the helicopter was incredibly hot!

This is probably the best way to see this amazing island. There are some many remote places that can only be accessed by helicopter. The pilot was able to get very close to a lot of the mountains and gave us great vantage points for all the scenic highlights. We went with a 2 yr. old and he slept through... More
