We arrived by cruise ship but booked this on our own directly with Safari. They were courteous and answered all my questions when I booked. They picked us up at the pier at the time stated. We were taken to their office about a mile from the airport. We were given a safety briefing by the "mohawked" guy. Although I... More

We opted to not take the cruise ship excursion and researched helicopter companies on our own. After reading the reviews, we chose Safari, and we were not disappointed!!! Unlike the reviewer who did not "get" the humor of the "pineapple hair-do" employee (Chelly?) who gave us our briefing, we found him to be hilarious! His presentation and send off to... More

We took this helicopter ride over Kauai on 4/5/2014. It was the highlight of our stay on this island. It was Bill's 1st time on a helicopter, my 2nd (flew over Vegas strip long ago). It was a gorgeous day out, and the ride was very, very smooth. Our pilot Brian was very knowledgeable, and pointed out all the sights... More

The only thing I can say is that we actually had... More

After spending endless hours on the web to find which helicopter tour would be the best in Kauai, we ended up selecting Safari. The booking process is great, awith tons of nice tips (we spoke with Chelly who was really amazing). We selected the Eco Tour with the landing in Keith Robinson property. Every bit of the tour was stunning.... More

Went up with Safari Helicopters on March 31st. We had a 55 minute ride, saw absolutely staggeringly beautiful scenery, flew through a rainstorm, and had a wonderful time. I would totally recommend Safari - great crew, great flight!

My family took the 50 minute helicopter tour of Kauai after hearing that it is THE thing to do on Kauai. It is true that most of Kauai's beauty cannot be seen by the road - however if you are prone to motion sickness, please take caution! Two members of our party took dramamine before the flight and although no... More

I went on a one hour Helicopter ride with Safari March 27, 2014 and it was wonderful. The gentleman who drove us from the office to the Helicopter pad as well as going over the safety rules was just great. With his incredible sense of humor he made us feel right at home. Our pilot, Brian, was super professional, providing... More

The helicopter ride over the beautiful island of Kauai was certainly the highlight of our trip. Our pilot, Tom was our favorite part about this trip. He was funny and entertaining, but more importantly he made us feel extremely safe. He shared so many interesting facts about the island and you could tell he was so passionate about everything the... More
