My wife and I booked the Jurassic heli tour and were not disappointed! Our pilot "Isaac" was extremely professional and intertaining. The landing at the falls was simply awesome.

We did a chopper flight on the second day of our visit and had a ball! The trip took in every major landmark and gave unrivalled views of waterfalls, cliffs, the ocean, mountains and forest. The commentary inflight was informative and out everything into context. A highlight was the dramatic, sweeping views of Waimea Canyon. If you book, go for... More

Island Helicopters are the only Helicopter Company that can land at the bottom of the Jurassic Falls. This made the trip very special. To be at the bottom of the waterfall was truly amazing. Worth every cent. Warren was our pilot, he made everyone feel extremely comfortable and made sure we all got a view. There was so much to... More

My husband & I were on our honeymoon and went on the absolutely fantastic Jurassic Falls tour. It was utterly breathtaking and the pilot did such a fabulous job. How exciting being able to do the waterfall landing and being able to go down in the the crater too! I can honestly say that was one of the most incredible... More

AWESOME RIDE!!!!! Couldn't believe the view my wife and I had from the front seats. The landing at Jurassic falls was just unbelievable. The ride really made our 40th anniversary very special. The pilot (Isaac) we had was really very nice and made sure everybody got to take pictures of all the sights. The music that played over the headsets... More

What an AMAZING adventure !!!!! I was a bit hesitant to take a helicopter ride on the island. The idea of being in a helicopter terrified me but my husband assured me it was safe and this company had such great reviews we gave it a try. I AM SO GLAD I DID!!!!! There is no other way to see... More

Worth every penny. I would have paid just to fly with Curt. 30000 hours former Vietnam pilot. So smooth and professional. What a treat to have been able to offer this flight to my family. I thought its a once in a lifetime experience but now I would do it again in a heartbeat. Wow!

First thing I'll say is that Island helicopters runs a very good business - it ended up raining very hard when our flight was scheduled and they were able to find us another trip before we left Kauai. The staff was knowledgable and helpful with all questions we had. The helicopter ride itself was very cool, especially the visit of... More
