    A once in a lifetime experience for our family! Captain Kelby made us feel safe the entire time and the ride was a perfect combination of information and great tunes to take the scenery in! (We especially appreciated Jurassic Park at the falls). The views were unmatched and we’ll never forget our flight!

    This was, by far, the coolest thing we did while in Hawaii. Kelby was our pilot and was amazing. My wife was terrified to go and he made her feel comfortable and she absolutely loved the flight. Highly highly highly recommend adding this to your itinerary!
    Unique Kauai View

    Seeing Kauai from a helicopter was a unique experience. We’ve seen it from a car, from a boat, and from a small plane….from a helicopter was truly amazing!
    Esmeralda_A, Aug 2023
    Amazing experience! Great views but get there early to sit in front seat of helicopter. Wear dark colors for best pics with no reflection
    Comprehensive view

    Everybody was really friendly. Steve, our pilot, was great - entertaining and he made us feel safe. Good comprehensive overview of the island. The soundtrack added a lot to the experience.

    Adam was a great pilot, very informative and great personality!! The views were incredible! The ride was very smooth and comfortable.
    A must do excursion
    Nicole_C, Jul 2023
    Highly recommend!! Our pilot was amazing. Already forgot his name. Think it started with an M. Max? Mike? We flew 7/10 at 10:30 Anyways he was great. The views are incredible. Everyone was great that works there. My mom is 78 and has trouble getting around. They were extremely patient with her and helped her in and out of the helicopter Also we are a plus sized family. We did have to pay for an extra seat which was fine. Was so worth it. Please don’t let your weight stop you from going!!
    A once in a lifetime experience!

    The pilot was excellent. The tour was very good and took you all over the beautiful island. It wasn’t too long or too short, just right!

    Unforgettable way to see Kauai’s greatest hits!
    Maddie_E, Apr 2023
    First helicopter trip for my husband and I and our four year old daughter. Totally awe inspiring! Certainly the most efficient way of seeing the Napali coast and Waimea Canyon with young kids in tow. We had had some rain earlier in the day but that gave us great rainbows and waterfalls to enjoy. Air Kaui staff were super friendly and professional, and the whole operation runs like a well oiled machine. Our pilot, Nicky, voiced over the whole ride with interesting facts about the island and a nice soothing soundtrack to boot. Highly recommend.
    Alexander_F, Apr 2023
    Awesome!!! Truly one of the coolest experiences on the island. You really do not realize how rural the island is until you fly over it.
    You’ll love it!
    Andrew_L, Apr 2023
    Best experience ever!! Worth every penny! Beautiful scenic tour is the only way to see this island. don’t skip this!
    Excellent Adventure
    Eric_M, Mar 2023
    The helicopter flying low in the mountains and near waterfalls was spectacular! Our pilot Nick was incredible. All the staff were excellent customer service agents. Highly recommend!
    Great trip
    Ann_C, Mar 2023
    This was a great experience. The staff at the check in was all very friendly. The pilot was very experienced and we felt very safe on the ride. He also made the trip very entertaining and personalized it by using everyone's name, explained a number of things about flying, shared a wealth of information, all with a sense of humor. We saw waterfalls, whales, a crater, a canyon, and the Na Pali coastline as a part of the ride.
