It's been a few weeks since our flight with Forrest and Mauna Loa and we're still looking at each other, saying, "WOW!" My husband, 10 year old son, and I easily agree this was the best excursion we did on the island. Forrest was fantastic, we really felt like we got to spend some time at each sight, never felt...

We chose to do this helicopter tour with this company based on the reviews. It was everything the reviews said; excellent. Just my wife and I with the pilot and the doors off the helicopter gives you amazing views hard to match any other way. Some things are just worth the money. Great service and flight.

We chose this trip for 2 reasons the photography is better with the doors off and we read reviews of other companies where if you got the wrong seat you couldn't see. We selected Mauna Loa as it would be jus the two of us. It was such an exhilarating trip we came back with stacks of great photos and... More

I had previously not thought about a helicopter tour until so many people raved about it as the best way to see Kauai. We ultimately went with this company for the fact that you get a private helicopter tour with just 2-3 people, and the doors off option is a must! Our pilot told us a lot of fun facts... More

We chose this vendor because it is a small helicopter that only seats 3 tourists + pilot. Therefore you are guaranteed a window seat! We also did the doors off option which was well worth the extra charge and made the tour so much more exciting and I was able to get great video. Even though we started a little... More

We got an amazing experience with Mauna Loa Helicopter Tours. From the moment of the booking, to the second we checked in, everything was quick and smooth. Our pilot - Guy - was very nice and skilled. While cruising he explained us the history of the island, showed us the different geological formations, brought us close to some of the... More

Our 4 children were flown on 2 hełicopters on a doors open flight. They couldn't stop raving about it - which is something for teenagers. Their pilot's, Guy and Ronnie, enthusiasm for flying and Kauai rubbed off on them. We recommend this company to anyone wanting a truly private helicopter adventure.

Had a phenomenal experience with this tour company. Very experienced, knowledgeable of island lore, extremely friendly and safe! The doors off tour was definitely the way to experience the sights of this island. Even my wife, who was deathly scared of flying in a helicopter was super pleased with the flight! The waterfalls, canyon and Napali Coast views are indescribable... More

This experience was by far the highlight to our vacation. Our pilot Forrest, did an amazing job! He made us feel comfortable from the moment we met him. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a lot of great information throughout the entire flight. It would be hard to pinpoint one sight as a favorite because the flight kept getting... More

Our flight this morning can only be proposed to anybody who is interested in doing a helicopter tour. Ronny, our pilot, is certainly a master of his trade. Although that helicopter is rather a small model, I - 2m (approx 6'7") - still found convenient space behind the pilot - the best seat for the photographer (either left or right).... More
