The pilot was excellent. The trip was amazing. The chopper was smooth. Getting to walk pretty much to the base of the falls was awesome - we were close enough to be getting soaked by the spray from the falls. Do it. Worth the $$!

Be able to see this from different angles from eh front seat of a helicopter was amazing.. this is a massive waterfall, and getting to this as well as dozens of other smaller falls from the air is something everyone should do at least once...More

But you can't hike here. You must take Island Helicopters. They are the only ones that can land here. But this is an astounding waterfall and worth the extra to land there.

This was amazing, the whole helicopter ride was amazing, but I think that jurassic falls was the best part. Being a huge 'Jurassic park' movie fan, this was amazing. Even my Cousin who didn't watch Jurassic Park loved it!

Shoes that are comfortable and your not afraid to get muddy. A light jacket in case it starts to rain. A small backpack for water and a snack.
