    Breath taking views of Kauai
    Candace_M, Sep 2023
    This was our first trip to Hawaii so people have told us the best way to see Kauai is to fly so that’s what we did. Guy our pilot took us to amazing spots such breath taking. The staff from check in to the end were awesome. Such great people. Highly recommend doing the open doors…
    Open door Helicopter tour
    Michelle_A, Sep 2023
    This tour is magical! Most beautiful place I’ve ever been. Seeing Kauai through a helicopter without doors is so special. We also had a great driver- Felipe.
    Best way to see this wonderful island
    Eva_W, Sep 2023
    Wonderful views over Kauai Island. The pilot did not miss out anything and took care that everybody had a brilliant view
    Surreal views
    Courtnee_C, Sep 2023
    Joe was a terrific pilot and guide! He was knowledgeable of the sites we were flying over and there was a beautiful sense of pride in his island home and in his work. We loved our time with Joe. The views are unmatched and we would 100% recommend flying “doors off” with Joe. Five stars all the way.
    Expert pilot, fantastic views, once in a lifetime experience
    Jamie_G, Sep 2023
    Our pilot Felipe was an excellent pilot and a genuinely warm individual who went out of his way to give us the best possible tour over Kaua'i. With recent rains, the waterfalls into the valleys were spectacular and the entire ride was awe inspiring. We can't recommend this experience enough.
    Must do -- especially private
    Beverly_P, Sep 2023
    This was the most wonderful adventure -- we had it the day after we did the raft and to see everything from the air was just top of the world. Philippe our pilot was top notch. We were lucky that it was raining some because the waterfalls came to life and got some great pictures.
    Amazing helicopter ride!
    Ryan_W, Sep 2023
    Our pilot Joe did a phenomenal job. It was an incredible experience. Would highly, highly recommend. Thank you!
    Doors off is a must
    Jake_U, Sep 2023
    Doors off is the only way to go. I don’t think there is a more beautiful helicopter tour out there! Pilot really allows you to see some amazing things and capture some great pictures. Thanks captain Joe!
    Wow what a tour!
    Adam_S, Sep 2023
    This was incredible. We paid a bit more to have our own flight but this meant my wife and I had the perfect views throughout and there was no bad spot on the flight. Really informative pilot and helpful ground crew. A lot of people do these tours but this experience won’t be exceeded.
    Cindy_D, Sep 2023
    It was our first time in a helicopter and no doors. Our pilot Guy was awesome. He made sure we were comfortable with the turns (I was a little leery at first). He told us all about each of the areas we saw. I highly recommend him and this tour. We are in our late 60’s and we had a blast! The scenery was breathtaking.
    Exceptional tour and a must try
    Rakshanda_R, Sep 2023
    The view were exceptional and the guide was informative. We had a complete 1 hour tour and it was breathtaking. We saw a double rainbow as well.
    Rick_K, Sep 2023
    Beautiful waterfalls and rainbows. The pilot was awesome. We were able to see landscapes that otherwise would have been impossible to get to. A perfect adventure.
    Amazing ride with James,...
    Denise_R, Sep 2023
    Amazing ride with James, an awesome informative safe pilot! Toured Kauai with just the 2 of us and pilot.. with no doors! Highly recommended.
    12/10 recommend!
    Priyanka_G, Sep 2023
    Absolutely incredible experience!! Felipe was our pilot and he did an awesome job making us feel safe and comfortable. He was also very knowledgeable and had good suggestions to offer. Stunning views and way to see the island of Kauai! It was nice to have the helicopter just to ourselves. Don’t hesitate, book it!!
    Are you ready for this!
    Tracey_S, Sep 2023
    If you want to see put beauty, then do this! Professional pilot, and just great from start to finish. A must do!
    Over the top experience
    Lynn_W, Aug 2023
    First of all the pilot was very knowledgeable about what we were looking at and it’s a lifetime experience for my wife and I because we’ll probably never have a chance to go there again beautiful lash landscape.

    Waterfalls and weather
    Christopher_C, Aug 2023
    Pilot Guy was great, the weather was rough, and we didn't get to see the Napali Voast, but it was an adventure! You really get tossed around, and there's nothing separating you from the weather, but we would do it again (and hope to see the coast next time). What we did get to see were lots of clouds, rain, and waterfalls, and the crater. Some very skillful flying put is at ease. No bruises. Quite an experience! We booked late, so the only slot open was 2:00. If we try again we would go for earlier in the day hoping the weather is better. The entire staff was full of Aloha, very nice! Thanks!
    Wonderful informative great experience.
    Linda_H, Aug 2023
