I booked this tour a couple weeks prior to our arrival on Kauai using the on line site That all went very smooth. We were greeted by Sherell, quite an entertaining young man! This was truly a great way to see the island from the airport to the Napali Coast. The music that played and the pilots (Buffy) commentary were... More

The helicopter ride is the activity you will not to miss! Although I got motion sick, and used the bags provided a few times, it was worth the trip! We paid a little extra to get the DVD of our flight, and we've shown it to our friends as a travel-log. Our pilot was great, very knowledgeable, very kind, especially... More

I have done several helicopter tours within the Islands Kauai included. However, Safari has been the best experience. From the check in and being entertained by Sherril (sp?) to having a female pilot it was AWESOME!. Sherril , then driver, was a better warm up comic than any professional. great fun. The views are amazing. Do wear dark clothes. The... More

Everyone with Safari were very nice and helpful in explaining what to expect. We had paid for the trip that was suppose to make a stop but because of the weather we were unable to and were politely refunded that portion of the trip. I am glad we chose Safari and if we go back we will again. Can't wait... More

Never in a million years would I think I'd be able to fly in a helicopter let alone in Kauai! It was simply breath taking. We paid that litle bit extra to sit in the front and it was 100% worth it! The ride was smooth and relaxing. The pilot and staff were wonderful. You cannot explain this experience whilst... More

We were picked up at the Pride of America pier at 8:40. We got checked in at their office, were given the safety briefing and then waited for the other two passengers to arrive. When all six were ready, they drove us to the helicopter pads, we got buckled in, headphones on and took off. A side note: I had... More

Going on a helicopter while in Kauai is just a must. It is really breathtaking to see the views of the lush greens among many other reasons to take this tour. It was really fun and you really have a great view. My husband and one son sat in the front while my other son and I sat in the... More

We definitely wanted our first trip to the islands to be a memorable one. We had heard that a helicopter tour was the best way to see Kauai. My wife was reluctant about flying in a helicopter. The staff at Safari did a good job of putting her at ease. Our pilot, Buffy, was very professional and also very knowledgeable... More

We recently went on the 60 minute helicopter tour of Kauai with Safari Helicopters. My parents had done a similar tour on their honeymoon years ago, and my dad was eager to share the experience with my brother, my husband, and myself. Our pilot was Bryan, and he was an excellent pilot and extremely knowledgeable about the island. He was... More
