Awesome trip on Kauai

This helicopter ride was one of the best highlights of our trip to Hawaii! Worth the time and money to take this ride with this company. And our pilot, Warren was the best!

Without a helicopter, the closest view we found of this waterfall is from a turnout north of the Waimea Lookout.

Did this with our grandson. Forget flying to the Falls, take Island Helicopter which will land at the Falls like in the movie, although the original helo pad was destroyed in the storm during/aftrer the shooting, you can see the reamins. Land and walk around. It is worth the extra $50 bucks!

We saw this falls while on a helicopter tour with blue Hawaiian. It was such a beautiful sight, I would definitely recommend taking a ride with this company as you will 100% see the falls and many more!

We took this helicopter tour on October 14. Total tour last about 75 minutes. You land at the falls and spend about 15 minutes there. Falls were spectacular! We have taken a number of helicopter tours in Kona, Kauai and the mainland. I would rate this one as good but not great. The falls are the main attraction-these guys are... More

And iconic of course! Walking over to this place after the helicopter landed and seeing it in person is breathtaking. Of course, if you're a big Jurassic Park fan, you'll appreciate it even more. Just walking over there you feel like you're in the movie. A beautiful sight to see. I did not want to leave!

This waterfall lives up to the expectation in terms of beauty. But is very hard to access other then by helicopter due to being on private land. But definitely worth seeing anyway you can.

We took the helicopter ride that included the landing at the area near the base of the falls. Landing there coming down through the mountains and green foliage was, for me, a spiritual experience. We had to wear protective booties so that we did not track any foreign spores into the forest areas. Being there was absolutely jaw-dropping, for the... More

Only accessible by helicopter, this was just breathtaking. Totally worth doing the package where you get to land and do the little hike. I really appreciated that they had us wear little booties to keep the area pristine from things we could track in.

My spouse and daughter withdrew at the last moment because of cloudy skies. My sun and I flew over the entire Island braving the rain in between the mountains. The coastline topography is simply jaw-dropping to say the least. Getting the opportunity to see the "Jurassic Falls" was an awesome experience for us both. Added to this was the explicit... More
