We have done numerous helicopter tours and this was by far the best of all. Clean and safe, modern helicopter. We did the Jurassic waterfall landing tour. The falls were impressive. The flight through Waimea canyon was gorgeous. Better yet were the views of the Na Pali coast. We were even fortunate enough to get into the volcano crater. This... More

Bottom line is the "Jurassic Falls" landing is unique and very special and we were glad we did it. Our pilot was safe and the flight went very smooth over the entire island. It was a terrific way to see the Waimea Canyon and Na Pali coast. A few things could have been done better: 1) they schedule you there... More

We did the Jurassic falls flight with waterfall landing. The trip was spectacular. The views unforgettable. What made this beyond fabulous was our pilot Gary. He could maneuver the helicopter to optimize the scenes. Took you into the cliffs, spotted a dolphin pod, had great information - he was excellent. This is expensive, but absolutely worth it so save your... More

We had an amazing ride on an absolutely clear day on Kauai, especially on the north shore. This helicopter stops at the water fall made famous in Jurassic Park, and is the only one that is allowed to land there. It's well worth the money to take this tour. It was our highlight from Kauai.

I booked a tour for my husband and myself for saturday (02/14/15) and thats all we could talk about prior to arriving in Kauai; needless to say we were disapointed when our tour was cancelled due to the weather.. i understand it was unsafe but i was still very sad since we were only on the island for a few...

So much of the beauty of Kauai is in the interior of the island and generally not accessible. The staff on the ground and our pilot were friendly and professional. This was the highlight of our 5 days on Kauai. Exceptional views of several waterfalls including a landing at Jurassic Falls, the Waimea Canyon and Na'Pali Coast

We took this ride per recommendation of our hotel concierge and boy were we glad that we went along with his suggestion. This is the only helicopter company that has access to the "true Jurassic falls". Where the falls is located is private property and you need special permission from the owner, Mr Robinson, to visit this place, which fortunately... More

This has to be the only way to see the magnificence of Kauai. The Falls were a particular highlight, Island Helicopters being the only tour operator with access to land at the site. Adding this to our tour was certainly worth the extra cost. Our pilot was very professional and his commentary accompanied by relevant music through the Bose headphones... More

The pilot Gary Peterson is very knowledgeable and competent. I used to work on helicopters and he has a lot of varied experience. I always like to see some grey hair on the pilot because it means they have a lot of experience. :-) We landed at the Falls and it was just a short walk from the landing zone... More

We took the Jurassic falls tour. Our helicopter pilot, Gary, was extremely knowledgeable and gave us an adventurous, close-up tour of the entire island. Landing at the Falls was breathtaking, the views of the "little Grand Canyon", middle of the island, secluded beaches, and even a little whale watching were fantastic. Gary handled the helicopter so well, we were treated... More
