Great tour. Princeville location is a quick drive from the St Regis. They take an official picture and DVD of trip.

“A MUST DO!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

It was a bit pricey, but worth it. The pilot was great and knowledgable of everything on the island. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Kauai. There was much more of the island that was not accessible by ground that we were able to experience. We were even able to see wild boar from the air!

“Helicopter ride over Kuaui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We (four adults aged 18-56) took a 55 mt ride from Sunshine Helicopter rides in Princeville. They are advertised as $189 + tax, but we got a discount for attending a time share presentation.
The ride was smooth and calm, pilot is a young, experienced and knowledgable. He was pointing to all the wonderful sights while flying. The ride takes you thru the green mountains, napali coast, waimea canyon and the famous "jurassic falls". They depart from the north shore in Princeville.

“Absolutely fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The six of us took a helicopter ride with cord (our pilot) around the island of Kauai. It was absolutely surreal and Cord was awesome. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

“Spectacular Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Sunshine Helicopters is the only company that has a departure point on the north shore. Well worth not having to drive to Lihue in the traffic! Great experience with a knowledgeable pilot who took us over all the beautiful sights of this amazing island. So smooth that I had to stop myself from falling asleep! Loved the experience and highly recommend it!
