We opted to book a helicopter tour for our first full day on Kauai, and it turned out to be such a great plan! There is no better way to really see the island and to understand all that Kauai has to offer. From the moment we walked into the Safari office, our trip and the staff were simply stellar.... More

The crew is fantastic and the trip is more than you can imagine. We went up with 2 other couples and the pilot. All seats have a great view. Must do if you're visiting Kauai.

This is one of the best parts of the vacation. I had never been in a helicopter and it is nothing like i thought it would be. We got to see the Island 1st hand and it was beautiful. The pilot told us everthing we could ever know and was very nice also. Mahalo Safari Helicopters for the time of... More

From the minute we booked our one-hour tour with Safari, they were incredibly accommodating in every aspect; the orientation session presented by the awesome staff was thorough and reassuring. The pilot was also very friendly, funny, and professional. We were lucky to have gotten a beautiful, sunny day -- I would say with certainty that you should always book the... More

This tour was an amazing experience. We did the Eco Tour, which was well worth the extra cost.(yet, less expensive than many competitors) Our pilot Julia was great, even in some windy conditions she did a great job of navigating the winds and avoiding a rough ride. Julia Link is a well known pilot for her ability to SAFELY land... More

This trip was incredible!!! The people were so nice and kind... great to work with. Booking was easy and everything went exactly as planned and promised. They picked us up timely at the cruise ship and dropped us off in town to meet some friends after the flight. This was at no additional cost. Seemed like they wanted to do... More

This was the most spectacular ride I have ever been on. The flight took in the sights of the coast and the great heights of the mountains which the pilot manoeuvred the helicopter so both sides did not miss a thing. The day was a little windy but it was so smooth on board thanks to the great work of... More
