Glad these tours are back up and running. We were afraid we would miss it due to the COVID-19 protocols in HI. Our ride with Russell (pilot) was the best decision we made while in Kauai. The “doors off” tour is the way to go. Russell has many nuggets of information about the island as we flew over it. Our favorite part was the flight into the crater. There is so much green! You may thing of it as a kind of pricey tour, but well worth it. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Loved that we were in a smaller helicopter with just the two of us. (And the pilot, of course.) No middle back seats to contend with. A real up close and personal tour. Our pilot/guide knew the name of every waterfall, mountain and valley as well as the history of Kauai. We lucked out and had a beautiful day and it was an awesome trip.

Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience. And thank you for being patient because we were running late. For future flyers it is imperative you go to Mauna Loa’s office on Rice St FIRST. Don’t follow Google’s directions to Mauna Loa’s Helicopter Tours. It will take you to their helipad. Russel, our pilot was great. He made sure we were all safe and our phones were properly secured for our open door tour. Everyone had great views, which is why only a max of 3 people can go on this flight. Some of the highlights: flying over several sites of Jurassic Park movies as well as Indiana Jones and a couple other movies; flying by Jurassic falls; flying over and threw Waimea canyon including the falls. It was flowing very slowly. It was almost nonexistent. We flew by the Na Pali coast. Gorgeous. The best way to see it. The BEST part though was flying right into the crater of Mt Waiale’ale. THAT part is completely weather dependent. I had been on another helicopter trip where it was raining and wasn’t able to go into the crater. Russel did a great job narrating, pointing out all the sites, telling us what we were seeing and where we were going. I would definitely recommend Russel and Mauna Loa Helicopter tours.

Thank you for choosing Mauna Loa Helicopter Tours to show you the island and the beauty it holds. And thank you for the kind words about us. We totally understand the slight difficulty in finding our office as it is off-site from the helicopters and we provide a detailed confirmation email. We are always here to help. We are happy to hear that the crater was visible on your tour as it is one of the wettest places on planet earth. Mahalo for allowing us to provide you with an unforgettable experience.
