We flew on Safari Helicopters on January 26th for a tour around Kauai. This was a special present for my wife and my 25th anniversary. It could not have been better! This is the best way to see Kauai. Shirell (spelling?) was the flight safety guide and drove us to the helicopter pad. He was awesome! He had a great... More

Our family went on the helicopter tour. Started out great with the shuttle drive over. Upon getting into the helicopter we were told by the pilot the air conditioner was broken. It was a very hot day and it did concern us a bit. It was very uncomfortable for the passengers in the back seat. Two of our party experienced... More

It was unfortunate that the air conditioning quit during this flight. However, the flight was well along at that time and the customers were informed that the failure had occurred, not at the beginning of the flight as stated. The pilot did everything he could to make the flight as comfortable as possible. Some people get ill on flights even... More

Safari Helicopter tours provided a wonderful opportunity to see Kauai from the sky. The women at reception were professional while being friendly and helpful. Our pilot, Julie, was a total expert. The tour almost seemed to be choreographed to the mix of local and classical music that she played during the flight. We booked ahead, online, and saved money over... More

We chose Safari for our Kauai flight because we were so impressed with them on Kona in 2014, They are very professional and knowledgable about the island and all its history and beauty. Special thanks to our pilot Julia as she made our flight fantastic.

What a great view of the island! For about 45 min, you and 5 others can be flown from one end of Kauai to the other, seeing everything from the Napali Coast to Shipwreck Beach. The view is fantastic, many pictures and videos were taken. Our pilot was a former Army officer. Everyone wears headphones, and there are a few... More

We booked the helicopter tour for the following day by phone and paid by credit card. After one hour drive from Princeville to their office, we were asked to pay additional $35 per person fuel surcharge fee and other taxes. We refused to pay this fee saying that the fuel is extremely cheap and why we were not notified at... More

This couple did not book directly with Safari Helicopters but through a vendor. We checked with the vendor, and all of the terms and conditions were explained to the customer prior to booking. The vendor even asked us to send the customer a confirmation email which included an explanation of the additional fees, which was done. His credit card was... More

After a quick search we found Safari to be cheaper than some of the other recommended helicopter tours but with excellent reviews so we tried it out and we're not disappointed! At the office we were greeted by Shirrell, who was in charge of us. He was utterly hilarious! It was a comedy routine from start to finish... PG appropriate... More
