This helicopter tour was so much fun! I had never been in a helicopter before, but it was so smooth that I never had a moment of nervousness. The views were beautiful, the pilot knowledgeable and informative, and it is the best way to see the entire island. We landed at the falls from the opening scene in Jurassic Park... More

I really liked this experience and it was a highlight of our trip. I suggest that you book your trip around 11 am that way there are no shadows in the valleys. Their prices are very reasonable for what they offer you. You can also request to be seated in the front two seats which have better views. It is... More

We took the Jurassic Falls landing tour. Gary was our pilot and he was great. This is one of the most beautiful things you will ever see in life. The views were simply breathtaking. The pilot was very Narrative. This is a must see and Island helicopter is the only company that lands on Jurassic falls and is much cheaper... More

This was absolutely amazing. We originally booked this tour with Jack Harter's helicopter tours. After being taken to the helicopter pad for them, we were told they wouldn't be flying that day and reimbursed our money. Unfortunately we couldn't reschedule and were super bummed to miss this opportunity. That night we did a little research, crossed our fingers and hoped... More

This is the only way to see Kauai and all its beauty. Our helicopter held six passengers and each had a great view. We were just blown away by the marvelous views. Our pilot was exceptionally qualified and provided a great narrative throughout the flight. He was happy to take our questions and answered them all. I'd do this tour... More

The whole trip was great - we arrived to early and they were able to suggest a great place down the road to watch the Dolphins before our flight. Once in the helicopter, our pilot was absolutely fantastic! He's obviously very comfortable with making the helicopter respond to him, and made the ride smooth and enjoyable. All the views were...

I'm pretty cheap, err, frugal. Dropping a few hundred bucks for my wife and I to go on a tourist attraction is not tops on my list. That said, this was totally worth it. Our pilot, Jody, was great. Interesting. Personal. Funny. And a hell of a pilot. The views are outstanding. The knowledge bombs are fascinating. So glad we... More

Alright, you are vacationing Kauai. It's HAWAII !! Go ahead & spend a little more to LAND at Jurassic Falls! When will you be there again? Do it and you won't be disappointed! My wife and I were lucky to be in the front seats (they assign seats I guess for weight distribution - but ask anyway). They were awesome.... More

This was a last-minute decision, and a good one. We picked this company at random without reading any reviews, so I had some misgivings about the safety of the helicopters, but was quickly reassured when we got to the airport. The company is very professional, the pilot is very competent, and the helicopters come with doors, yes, doors! Not all... More
