The Island Helicopters Jurassic Falls trip is well worth it! Do it. The trip is as amazimg and wonderful as you would think it is. Helicopter trip of a lifetime, to land and be right up close to Jurassic waterfalls! And our pilot Jeff from Holland, was outstanding.

Such a beautiful tour of the island. I was speechless and overjoyed by all the wonderful landscapes. I shed a few tears of happiness when we landed and I was sitting in the back seat. Imagine if I had been up front! Great company and crew. The pilot kept us feeling safe and gave us a lot of information along... More

We were on a Hawaiian cruise and at the port of Nawiliwili, when we decided that we wanted to do a helicopter tour. The heli tours offered from the ship were all sold out, so we went into the town and found several other options, which all offered very attactive tours. By the time we found these other options there... More

We spent two days in Kauai while our NCL Cruise Ship (Pride Of America) was in port. I booked this excursion based on reviews here on TripAdviser, and I was not disappointed. The reviews definitely nailed the experience. My family and I chose the Jurassic Falls flight option due to the landing at the waterfall site where a part of... More

We bit the bullet and opted for the more expensive tour that stopped at Juraasic park waterfalls. Worth every penny. Amazing touch down a short distance from the falls on a patch of land just big enough to hold the chopper. (Warren was an exceptional pilot!). After a very short hike to see the amazing falls, we proceeded to tour... More

I booked the tour in advance. Our luck, there was a cancellation a couple days earlier than planned but the weather was amazing. My girlfriend and myself went for it and decided to take the tour on such a gorgeous day. Our pilot was awesome from take off to landing. I would highly recommend seeing Kauai by helicopter if you...

I was a bit skeptical after hearing that one helicopter accident happens every year on Kauai. So we did some thorough research. Island Helicopter hasn't had any fatalities since its founding 20 years ago. Additionally, we completely lucked out given that 1) pilot Gary seems to be super experienced, calm, knowledgeable and fun. 2) the weather was gorgeous - sunny,... More

Our pilot was Warren. He did an excellent job. The views were breathtaking. If you are going to splurge on one thing during your vacation I think this should be it. We saw all of the island including things we could never see on foot or car.

We were not going to do the helicopter tour we had done one on the Big Island a few years ago and it was nice. Then we read that visiting Kauai and not taking the helio was like visiting the Sixteenth Chapel and not looking up. They were right it was beautiful and island helicopters were awesome. Thank you to... More
