I visited Jurassic Falls via Island Helicopters Jurassic Falls Tour. It was an amazing experience and one I will remember for years to come. As the helicopter made its way in the gorge leading up to the falls, music from Jurassic Park was piped through my headphones. I had goosebumps! We only got a glimpse of the falls flying in,...

A bit apprehensive if the write ups would do this trip justice. The Island Helicopter excursion lived up to its write up....and more. It can be difficult to get my wife excited about site seeing but in her own words "that was the best experience I have had" This tour company is the only flight that can land at the... More

I went on the Jurassic falls landing with Island Helicopters. It was hyped up but it wasn't worth the money paid. There was no walk or hike to the falls it was a small two minute path. They talked another two miutes about the scene in the movie and then it was another 10 minutes standing around. Our group just... More

Bring lots of water and a friend. Prepare 4.5 hours if you want to savor the site. tough hike usually seriously muddy and always rocky.

The helicopter landing at base of the Jurassic park falls was amazing and well worth the money. It had rained a lot the few days prior to my arrival on Kauai so the falls were spectacular. Since only one helicopter can land at a time, only 6people at the base of the falls at a time. No jockeying for the... More

My partner and I were looking forward to our helicopter ride (a first for me) and this trip via Island Helicopters more than lived up to expectation. We chose the Landing Tour, there was a (significantly cheaper) Island tour only (which was also included with the Landing tour) but as fans of the movie we decided to land at the... More

We saw these falls from the Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour. It was breathtaking! It is just one of those things you need to experience for yourself!

We did the Jurassic Falls Tour with Island Helicopters. This was an amazing experience. The helicopter landed a very short distance from the fall where we were able to get out and take pictures. The waterfall is absolutely amazing and pictures do not do this fall justice! The helicopter was a great experience! The views of the island and the... More
