Napali coast & Kauai island at their best

To see the beauty of Kauai, Sunshine choppers are the way to go! Loved the experience from start to end. The coast, waterfalls and nature can't get closer

What an awesome ride and tour. Our pilot Jay did a great job at narrating the one hour flight. We went down into Waimea Canyon which is called the Grand Canyon of Hawaii. After that he took us by The Na Pali Coast State Park. This particular Coast cannot be reached other than by airplane or boat. We also went... More

There are a handful of helicopter rides and after a little bit if research, we chose the one that suited us best. They were the most affordable and we paid a little extra for first class that guaranteed us seats up front with the pilot. The views were absolutely breath taking and you will see more than you could ever... More

Best way to see the island. The staff was very friendly. Our pilot Steven was great. He was funny and knew a lot about the area. Caution if you get motion sickness or airsickness take something for it. I did not and pay for it by the end of the flight. No airsickness but a little quesy for the rest... More

Once in a lifetime experience. Well worth the money. Sunshine picks you up and back for free if you don't have car. Other rides, I believe, make you take a pricey taxi. Really loved!

My husband and I did this trip which has been on my "Bucket List" for ever. I could not recommend it more highly. Our pilot Steve was very highly trained as he was in the navy flying helicopters. So that certainly reassured us of being in capable hands. As he said this flying job beats the other one he had... More

This was our second helicopter tour when traveling to Hawaii and this was just as exciting as the first. Every island is different, so it is amazing to see them from this vantage point. Save up your pennies and do it!
