We toured Kauai yesterday with Safari Helicopters and could not have asked for a better experience. First of all, the selection process: after much review and investigation, Safari seemed to have the best safety profile. I have lots of issues with heights and claustrophobia, so I had LOTS of concerns. Let me say that I had ZERO problems with either... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our helicopter tour of Kauai. It's a great way to see the island! Safari Helicopters was a wonderful company to go with. Our pilot, Julia, was fantastic! The trip was very smooth and comfortable, and she gave us lots of great info on the island that helped us narrow down how we'd spend the... More

My family and I did a lot of research before choosing to fly with Safari Helicopters. We did not regret that! Correspondence via phone and email before the day of the flight was quick and helpful and on the actual day, we only experienced professional guidance and smiling faces. Our pilot Tom was awesome and took us on an 1... More

I looked at all of the Helicopter companies and couldn't find anything that stood out about any one company, so we chose safari because they could fit us in late notice. We were the first tour of the morning and we arrived early to find breakfast waiting for us (A papaya fell from the tree in front of the business).... More

The helicopter ride was amazing. I had a blast and loved the soundtrack and music in the headphones during the ride. Our pilot, Julia, was phenomenal at her job and told us information about the island. She was very nice and talked to each one of us. I do get motion sick and was feeling it at the end so... More

We went on the helicopter ride the second day that we were there on our trip. We loved it. Our pilot and the staff were very nice and helpful. We got to see parts of the island that usually people do not see. This was our first time being on a helicopter. We paid extra to sit up front, and... More

The helicopter tour "Deluxe Waterfall Safari" was great! Booking was easy (few days in advance, though you can only specify the day, no time, you can specify a preference in the comments). On the day of the flight you should report 45 minutes prior to tthe flight in heir office, from there you will be brought by minibus to the... More

5 stars plus. The only way to see Kauai. This is an absolute must. The scenery is totally awesome. For me this was the best helicopter trip I' ve done from the scenery point of view, it was better than the Grand Canyon and better than Niagara Falls. Truely stunning scenery including the jurassic park waterfall and the fantasy island... More

Great trip, our pilot Julia was top notch. Only thing that threw it off a bit was a rude, over bearing shuttle driver full of lame puns named Cherril. Luckily the views made up for it!
