I hesitated booking a helicopter tour because if the cost, but friends told me its a must-do in Kauai and they were right! I did my research and selected Island Helicopters. From the moment we lifted off it was so exhilarating. You could never see such amazing views of the falls, Napali coast, and going into the crater was very... More

Can't really put into words how amazing this experience was! Did a private tour with Jurassic Falls landing and it was unbelievable! Our pilot was wonderful, felt so safe and comfortable. Nice long ride around entire island, with amazing views and great information about everything we were seeing. No other way to see the things you'll see on this flight.... More

We took the 90 minute flight with landing at the base of the waterfall. There are no words that can accurately describe the beauty. Our pilot was AMAZING and super great with my kids age 11 and 15 who never flew in a copter. If you go take this flight .

We booked this tour thru our hotel. We wanted to include the landing at Jurassic Park Falls. It was definitely worth it. Our pilot, Gary, was professional, very informative and a great pilot. The ride (my first on a helicopter) was EXTREMELY smooth and not as loud and noisy as i thought it would be. Noise canceling headphones and well-picked... More

First let me say that I have done other Napali coast helicopter tours with other companies. This simply outdid them in every way. We did the Jurassic Falls tour. The flight out to the falls was beautiful and the pilot wove down the river and timed the music just right so that the crescendo of the song was playing just... More

We took Jurrasic Falls tour with stop at the fall, where Jurrasic Pak movie was filmed. Approach through canyon was impressive, as well as landing on tiny spot near the fall. The rest of the scenic flight was also very interesting - Kauai landscape is breathtaking .

Pilot was informative and friendly. Helicopter was clean and had top to bottom windows. Nice music playing on Bose headphones during ride. Took 50 minute tour and saw entire island ~ so many waterfalls (including Jurassic), canyons, coast. Absolutely amazing. Dramamine recommended.

We went on the Jurassic Falls landing tour with Island Helicopters- this was amazing and is definitely worth the added cost. Our pilot was great and informative and we would recommend Island Helicopters to anyone!
