My husband and I visited Kauai last week and had the most incredible experience as we enjoyed the extended helicopter tour over this beautiful island. Bruno was an excellent guide and pilot and allowed us to see every little piece of this island...with special attention to Waimea Canyon, the Napali coast, and waterfalls. We went doors off and got spectacular... More

The highlight of our trip was a doors-off helicopter tour over Kauai! The scenery was absolutely breathtaking! Our pilot, Ian, was a ton of fun and very knowledgeable, having grown up on the island. I chose Mauna Loa because I liked the idea of a private helicopter for just me and my husband. It is well worth the money and... More

From take-off to touch-down, a one hour flight on a first-class tour! Mauna Loa Helicopters Tours may cost a bit more, but when you are considering a once-in-a-lifetime experience, why not take a private tour? My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the exciting flight over Kauai. The day was perfect and according to Matt (the excellent pilot), we had the... More

My boyfriend treated me to a private, doors off tour for my birthday. Highlight of our trip. The helicopter tour gives you a new perspective of Kaua'i. It helped me to understand the geography and absolutely stunning natural beauty that just cannot be captured from the ground. We got to see the famous Na Pali Coast, which we wouldn't have... More

We took the extended doors off tour with Guy as our guide and had a fantastic time! He gave a lot of information about the formation of the island itself and various geological features. It gave a great overview of the island on our first day. Highly recommended!

Our helicopter tour was with Guy. He reminded me of the skipper from Gilligan's Island (except with a beard). He was an excellent tour guide. He is very knowledgable about all of the canyons and waterfalls on the island. But most of all, I felt that he was professional, and felt that I could literally trust him with my life.... More

Definitely the highlight of the trip!... went doors off and loved every second of it! Our pilot, Ian was very funny and professional. Saw humpback whales, turtles and flew over amazing canyons and beaches. Would not hesitate to recommend Mauna Loa Helicopters Tours! Go for the extended tour, it goes sooooooooooo fast!

First helicopter ride and we went doors off! What a thrill. Really felt we got a close up view of Kauai. Our pilot was wonderful and gave us a lot of information and history about Kauai.

We booked an open-door helicopter tour with Mauna Loa last week. Glad we did! We had Guy as our pilot. He was very informative and pointed out all sorts of things to see. He also made sure to do multiple views of each site so that both I and my husband (sitting on opposite sides of the helicopter) could see... More
