We have flown with other helicopter companies on Kauai, but were very impressed with Safari on our last trip, so when we wanted to take our friends on a helicopter ride, we returned to Safari. Our pilot Paul was one of the best we have ever had. The flight was smooth and every seat had a good view.

This was our second helicopter tour on the trip but it was the best one by far!! Safari is a professional and safe company. The pilot was amazing!!! Flying through the cliffs and right up to the huge waterfalls was incredible!! DO THIS TOUR!!!

Everyone at the place of business was very positive and helpful. We took the first flight in the morning and even though it looked rainy and overcast when we took off, it was not long until the pilot showed us the trip they promised. We got to see the entire island. He was very good at giving us good bits... More

My daughter and I did the Safari Waterfall sightseeing flight last week and can't recommend this highly enough. From the moment Shirell collected us from our hotel to when he dropped us off again after the flight, we knew we were in good hands. Buffy was our pilot (and doesn't she have the best job in the world?) and she... More

We did this on our third day of our 2 week stay and it gave us a wonderful appreciation for the island. You cannot see much of what we saw any other way. It helped put things into perspective as we drove around the island in the coming days. Buffy our pilot and guide was great and informative and we... More

This was by far such a highlight of my trip! We had a group of 6, and we came in on a cruise ship, and they promptly picked us up at the port. The driver was more than friendly, outgoing, nice, and a bunch of other awesome words for him, because he surely wanted to make sure we had an... More

Safari helicopters offers an amazing must view of Kauai. One of the best parts of our Hawaii vacation. Paul, our pilot was great. His narration was awesome during the tour. Safari are professional and friendly.

First, I hope you see Sherell when you come in for your flight. He is one of the most entertaining people I have ever met. The ride was awesome with amazing views. Great opportunity to take great pictures. It would be silly not to see Kauai by helicopter and if you do, go with Safari. They are a great company!

This truly is the best way to see the island. Make sure you go if it's the only activity you do while you are here. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly.
