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.

This was the best money spent on my recent vacation to Kauai. Definitely a must for anyone visiting the Garden Island. Safari Helicopters made the experience fun and we felt very safe. Our pilot on the day was wonderful. My wife and I got some incredible photos and we are very happy with the tour. I will definitely recommend Safari... More

We booked our ride online before arriving to the island. It was the first time my husband and I had been in a helicopter. The office staff was friendly and after a short safety briefing we were driven to the heliport. The ride was very smooth and we were comfortable the entire time. They provided Bose noise canceling headphones which... More

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
