Our pilot was named Patricio and he was terrific. We are both 1st-time helicopter flyers, so flying without doors was pretty scary. The weather was perfect, we only encountered turbulence when we crested a ridge. Both of us came away from the flight saying it was scary, exhilarating and we would do it again when we return to Kaua'i. The flight started with a complete review of safety procedures, the same ones that you ignore on an airplane, you won't ignore them this time. We flew in and out of the Wiamea Canyon, over the Na Pali coast and then past the Sleeping Giant. It was a complete tour in an hour, we were fortunate to have great weather and the view couldn't have been better. We would highly recommend Mauna Loa helicopter tours, make sure that you are ready for it though if you ask for a "doors off" tour.
