Highly recommend that anyone traveling to Kauai include a helicopter tour with Safari. The views from the helicopter will leave you awestruck. We had driven to some of the beaches prior to the helicopter tour but from the air it was truly majestic. The team at Safari-Paul, Sherrill, Sherri, Ann and Hazel were great, very welcoming and knowledgeable of island... More

Our helicopter tour of the island was one of the highlights of our vacation. The pilot and staff were amazing and our experience was perfect. The weather cooperated fully, making this the ideal way to see the island. Our kids also loved every minute of the tour.

Having flown with Safari Helicopters on Kauai many years ago, we were very excited to give this experience to our college-age sons. We were careful to check the safety ratings and were pleased with Safari's excellent record. Everything was very smoothly handled, from reservations through check-in and photos at the end of the flight. The flight itself was incredible with... More

We absolutely loved our helicopter tour with Safari. Our pilot Julia was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. She took care to ensure we saw all of the remarkable sights and to give us interesting facts about specific areas of the island. This was definitely the highlight of our trip!

After 9 Christmas vacations to Kauai I finally went on a helicopter tour. Wish I had done so on the first trip. It's a great way to see the whole island and get a feel for the geography. It was a last minute decision on the last day of our stay. My friend and I went with separate companies as... More

We did this tour on Boxing Day, dec 26th and it was actually quite windy and cloudy. Lucky for us it cleared up before and during our flight and our pilot was amazing as speaking and explaining everything on the island (unfortunately I forgot his name) He was great at flying through and allowing everyone to get a view at...

Great views enhanced with fabulous music and with an enthusiastic, experienced and safe pilot. We landed on top of the mountain and got to get out and enjoy the smells and views of the wonderful Kauai. It was truly and experience of a life time. The canyon views from top to bottom are something that can only be experienced by... More

Because one person in my family is disabled and also because I read that the sea is rough in the winter on the Na Pali Coast, we decided to take a helicopter tour to see Na Pali. Our pilot. Brian, seemed to spend an awful lot of time hovering in front of thin, delicate waterfalls coming down green mountains a... More
