3 of us went on a one hour doors off ride. Best seat for photography is behind pilot (right side), best seat for less wind is in front next to pilot. Eli was wonderfully knowledgable and a good safe pilot! It had rained a lot so he showed us numerous waterfalls, and of course, the Waimea canyon, Wai'ale'ale crater and NaPali Coast. It was a treat to fly into the various canyons and crater. PIlot knew the trees, where the trees originated and how they were planted, and which were native species. Also showed us hikers on the Kalalau Trail, sea turtles, etc. I choose Inter Island because all 3 of us would have a window view but was hesitant about the doors off. The view is much better with doors off, and we shot all of our photos from doorless sides as the glare was intense through front window. Helicopter ride was the highlight of our trip - if I could only do one activity, I would rate this higher than our other activities of kayaking, hiking, biking, catamaran ride and ziplining.
