Dec 5th - Monday morning was clear and nearly dry in Lihue, Kauai. Perfect for a bird's eye view of this beautiful island! The ladies at the reservation desk cheerfully answered all our questions and explained ahead of time what to expect. Our pilot, Caleb, took us to breathtakingly beautiful spots inaccessible to most. He made sure everyone on board... More

We did the helicopter tour with the waterfall landing. It was an incredible experience overall. We had never been on a helicopter and the ride was so smooth and so much fun. There is no other way to see the beauty of the island in total as the view from above allows you to see it in a different way.... More

Myth: There are no bad seats Fact: 90% of the tour the island will be on the right, the breathtaking views will be on the right, the Napali coast, the beaches, the canyons will be on the right. There are 6 seats. Throughout the tour, the front 2 are the best, the two seats on the right will have an... More

First time on a helicopter and it was great! Pilot was polite, provided basic information,always felt safe. Lucked out that only 5 in the group (plane seats 6). Landing at the falls & getting up close was amazing!! Absolute best part of the tour. We were seated in 2nd row & the last 15 minutes it got really hot in... More

We did the Jurassic Park Falls tours and were so glad we spent the extra money for it. Such an amazing, breathtaking experience. The absolute serenity was just awe inspiring. Our pilot was VERY knowledgeable and a great guide. Anyone visiting Kauai should definitely spend the money to see it via helicopter.

We went with our family of 6. Got really lucky on the weather - very clear & beautiful. The Napali coast was absolutely stunning from the sky. The pilot was experienced, informative, polite, and professional. We felt very safe flying with him, and there were absolutely no issues. We went with 2 young children, though, and there was an opportunity... More

We went with Island helicopter tours on November 11 and really could not have asked for better experience. We had two nice young guys Aaron and another (I never caught his name) who gave us our safety training before heading out. They were wonderful, we all felt like they truly cared if we enjoyed ourself on this adventure. They were... More

Best way to see the island! Friendly staff. Pilot pointed out the sites and the ride was fun and comfortable. Beautiful views of mountains, crater, ocean, and lots of waterfalls. Easy location with plenty of parking. Shop is located at the take off spot so no crowded shuttle to the helicopter required. Only downfall is glare on the windows sometimes... More
