Got to sit up front with the pilot even though we paid for the rear seat. What a spectacular helicopter ride! Glad it was only 50 minutes because my stomach was about to revolt by the end of the ride.

Staff drove a van to pick us up from the hotel, a nice touch since we didn't have a car. They made me feel safe and secure because I was kind of scared to ride in the helicopter. Overall recommend this experience.

We took an early morning Sunshine Helicopter tour of Kauai and it was wonderful. We were able to see sights that could not be seen from any road. The guide was very knowledgeable and fun. We saw a mother and baby whale in the water off Hanaela? Bay. We saw numerous waterfalls with long tails of spray. It was my first helicopter tour and I enjoyed it very much. Certainly worth the fare.

A helicopter tour is the best way to see Kauai! Most of the island is inaccessible by car. You can only see the Na'Pali coast by boat or by air. This tour was great. It only lasted about 45 minutes but we saw all of the island. We were also fortunate enough to see a few whales as well. Adam was our pilot and was very informative about what we were seeing. Interestingly we met him the night before at Safeway, it is a small island!

Excellent trip, pilot was entertaining, scenery spectacular. Only negative is that our chopper video camera did not record and could not purchase our flight video, on the plus side, saved $50!!
