My wife and I have been on helicopter tours before and loved them. This one was nice. The pilot was very personable. But for $70 per person the ride only lasted eight minutes. Really, 8 minutes for $70 each? Our longest ride was in Maui....More

This was a great experience! Definitely something everyone needs to do at some point. The pilot was great. Friendly with professional and swift service. Helicopters are now my preferred type of travel! Definitely plan on returning! 😁
