My husband and I decided to do a helicoper ride in Kauai to see the beautiful island. I did lots of research about different companies. There were 2 or 3 crashes that happened before we went with other companies. I wanted to pick the company with the cleanest record. Safety was the most important thing to us. It didn't matter that Blue Hawaiian was a little more expensive. How can you put a price on safety? We loved our 50 minute flight. The helicopter had 3 seats in front (one was for the pilot) and 4 seats in the back. I was on the window side in the back and my husband was next to me in the middle. They seat you according to weight. We both had great view of everything. Our piliot was really informative and then sometimes he didn't say anything which was nice just to relax and take in the scenerey with the music. Our headphone allowed us to talk to the other passengers as well as cancel out the noise. I took them off at one point to see how loud it really was and it was VERY loud, so those headphones worked great. The had 4 cameras outside the helicopter to document the trip. The Napali Coast was AMAZING! We bought the video afterwards too to capture our wonderful experience. Toward the end of the flight we got a little nausious because we were moving to show the "wettest spot on earth" to both sides of the helicopter and that got us a little dizzy. But we were fine. The flight was safe and what an experience! It was probably the coolest thing I have ever done.
