We heard from a lot of people that the best way to see Kaua'i is to take a helicopter tour. Since most of the island is undeveloped, there is so much you can't see from the ground. We are both big fans of Jurassic Park and chose to do that tour. Our pilot Gary was the head pilot and made... More

From the moment I scheduled my flight to the moment I was returned to the office I was treated with excellent customer care. A shout out to Heidi and all the other office staff who answered my questions and assisted in booking my flight. Also a big mahalo to Caleb, our pilot, for a very smooth flight! I had seen... More

I had a wonderful time on this tour. I am so glad we decided to go and experience this. This was a whole type of experience flying around the whole island. Our pilot Gary was also awesome too. I would definitely recommend the landing at Jurassic Falls its worth the extra money. When I go back I will do the... More

Landing in the canyon and walking around the falls was totally a once in a life time experience and our family of four really enjoyed it. The company was nice, the helicopter was new and spotless, and the ride was comfortable. It was totally worth the money and I would reccommend it. Isaac was a terrific driver and we felt... More

The Jurassic Falls Helicopter Landing Adventure was the single most exciting event we had in Hawaii! Our pilot was a great asset to the tour and our appreciation of the great beauty that is Kaua'i. Playing the Jurassic Park theme song as we approached the falls was really a neat touch. Even though it was raining quite a bit when... More

This is one of the best and very exclusives things you can do in Kauai. Island Helicopters is the only operator who is permitted to land at the Jurassic Park water fall. We took off form the airport, flew out over Nawiliwili beach and mountain over the ridge into the private reserve checking out an lovely aerial the beach, port... More

If you go to Hawaii, the best island is Kauai and if you take the Jurasic park water fall landing, then you will feel like nothing can top this. When you decend to the water fall the pilot will play the Jurasic Park theme song, and it is magical down there. That is the only place I have visited in... More

Great service from reservation, ground crew and pilot. Spectacular up close views of the island only to be seen by air with commentary and well timed sound track through headsets.
