This company is definitely the way to go... From start to finish the experience is incredible. The ladies at the front desk are friendly and warm, Shirelle, the driver to the helipad was HILARIOUS and kept saying funny 'Aussie' jokes, riddles, songs etc and had us smiling and laughing so hard!! He hopped along the helipad like a kangaroo when... More

The staff at Safari made us feel so comfortable...very friendly and accommodating! Brad was our pilot and knowledgeable about the Island with some humor and history entwined. The Best thing is there wasn't any push to buy anything...you can buy a DVD of the tour but we had to actually ask about it. Safari went beyond our expectations!!!!

We flew on Safari 21 Feb, 2015. First of all, my wife and I were very fortunate that the weather was amazing and visibility fantastic. I know not everyone is as fortunate. I booked on-line and got the morning flight like I requested. The price isn't that bad when you consider you are flying for an hour...the airplane flight from... More

They are an awesome company! From the minute we booked them on line and I received a phone call confirming from the office in minutes to the apologies for having to reschedule our flight be cause of 40 knot winds. Wind isn't their fault, thanks for thinking safety first! Love them you can't go wrong. Oh and the flight was... More

It was very windy the first few days of our booking so after two times had been cancelled, the third time was the charm. It was fine because we were there for 12 days and had that option. If you were to come in on a cruise, you would be out of luck. But safety is everything. We went out... More

Our Safari helicopter tour was fantastic, a wonderful experience & the highlight of my Hawaii holiday. Thanks to the crew at Safari for a stunning adventure.

My husband and I spend almost every anniversary on Kauai. Until this year, however, we had not done the helicopter trip since it is a bit pricey. But this was our 14th anniversary (on the 14th of February!) so we decided to treat ourselves. I can't believe we waited so long! The tour was the highlight of our trip. The... More

Our first trip to Kauai was amazing, Koloa Zipline was on our to do list and was exceptional. With 8 lines, one is 1/2 mile long and is what got our attention. It didn't matter if it was your first time ever or you had done this before, with ground school the staff made sure you felt comfortable. Two of... More

We heard of the grand canyon of Hawaii and what a better way to see it than via a helicopter ride. The trip was worth it and I do recommend this worth while adventure. Nothing compares to flying inside a volcano, diving at tree top level to the canyons then through the cliff to the ocean. We thought it was... More

Went with my husband and in-laws. The flight was amazing. We saw so much of beautiful Kauai that we would not have been able to without the helicopter flight. The pilot was very informative and the "flight attendant" that helped us was extremely funny and made the experience really one-of-a-kind. Will do it again when we go back to Kauai!
