Not only was the experience of viewing the island from above spectacular, but the people that helped from registration to flying were amazing.
I highly recommend this!!!

“Kauai Helicopter Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

This was an excellent way to really see the island. Safari Helicopters were great fun to fly with and filled us in on all sorts of background information. Buffy, our pilot, was superb - had a great calming influence and delivery style. We always felt in safe hands. Wow! Do it - it's the only way to really see the island.

“Awesome way to see Kauai!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

This is the first time we have booked a helicopter tour with Safari, but it will not be the last. We opted for the Eco Tour which allowed us to land on a private botanical garden and meet Keith Robinson, whose family, back in the 1860's, purchased the island of Ni'ihau as well as a good portion of Kauai from King Kamehameha V. That was a treat. However, what really made the trip great was our pilot, Brian, and our driver, Sherrill (spelling??). Brian was very knowledgeable about the island, and was able to answer any questions we had. In addition he pointed out a bunch of great hiking trails for us to try on our next trip. Sherrill is one of the most energetic and fun people you could ever meet. He also shared some insider information with us about the island and he really added to the quality of our adventure. The whole staff at Safari are top notch, and we look forward to our next trip to Kauai and our next adventure with Safari.

We did a little research before booking our helicopter tour of the island, and glad we went with Safari. Great price and amazing experience. They are also the safest helicopter company in Kauai :)

“Bucket List for Anyone!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

What better way to explore the island of Kauai! It is even more beautiful from above and you can see sites that you can't get to by car. The staff are great! Worth every penny.
