Flight was ok. Could have been better if pilot JIM had refrained from sexual comments during tour. Offensive to women on board. Could choose a different company next time.

Oh my goodness, Pilot Jim was offensive? The truth is, Jim is a quintessential gentleman and I'm certain he was unaware that his commentary made anyone uncomfortable. Nonetheless, we'll take it up with him. Thank you for writing.

Our pilot was Evan, and he was awesome!Great pilot to begin with, and an even better tour guide. He was very friendly, funny, and informative. He made sure he gave both sides of the helicopter the chance to take amazing pictures! Absolutely recommend!

It helps to have a pilot/guide who was born and raised in Hawaii. Accept no substitutes. Thank you for flying with us.

It's really more like appetizers. We had pulled pork & rolls, salad chips. You might want to get a late lunch that day.
