My girlfriend booked this tour as birthday present. It may be one of the coolest things i've ever done so i owe her big time. She chose Safari over other tours because of the larger windows allowing max visibility. I can't attest to the competition, but Safari was amazing. The staff was friendly and pilot was skilled and knowledgeable. You... More

The view from the helicopter is absolutely spectacular. This is my second flight with Safari Helicopters (first was in the Big Island), and I am never disappointed at all. The price is worth it. Predeparture orientation was clearly explained including safety and other issues that might be encountered during the flight. The pilot was very knowledgable of Kauai geography as... More

Our party of four traveled to Kauai, Hawaii in early April of 2011. The weather was perfect - mild and warm enough for us Floridians to swim and snorkel! While staying in Poipu on the southern shore, we traveled the island and chose to take an air tour with Safari Helicopters in Lihue. This was and still is the best... More

Our tour guide, Paul, was excellent. However, in loading the helicopter, a rather large man was placed in the middle. Once he sat down, he promptly spread out and took over half the seat - forcing my husband into me, and myself into the window (literally when they opened the door to let us out, I fell out). The same... More

Safari helicopter tour was an awesome experience with the most professional staff as well. Our pilot Paul was very informative and fun. I would definitely recommend this company. They also had safety at the forefront of their tour. Thanks Safari for an amazing time. Teresa Henry, California

From booking through flight ops, Safari Helicopters proved to be ultimate professionals. My wife and I have been to Kauai twice before, and have reveled its remarkable scenery from ground level. But since most of the island is accessible only from the air, we were thrilled to see so very much more of its stunning geography via our helicopter tour.... More

Aloha our experience with Safari Helicopters flight over Kauai was awesome. The whole trip went like clockwork from picking us up at the cruise boat to pre-flight instructions and getting us back to the boat was a hassle-free deal. The flight itself was awesome, we saw so much more of the island than we ever would have, it was well... More

Awesome safety record and if that isn't enough consider the great views, excellent pilots, and the best prices.

I would give Safari nothing at all if it weren't for Dana, our pilot, who was friendly and knowledgeable. My husband and I booked a sightseeing flight, which my husband could not take due to illness. I went anyway. My mistake. We had been told that our location in the 6-person copter (excluding the pilot) would depend on our weight... More

Paul M, Chief Pilot at Safari Helicopters, responded to this review

Our staff made a big mistake regarding this customer. She should NOT have been seated where she was. However, we were not given a chance to correct the situation when she got back to the office. We would have, given the chance; either refunded her money or rescheduled her on another flight with better seating free of charge. But all... More
