What a thrilling experience, and exceptional staff. Everyone we encountered at Air Kauai was extremely friendly and went out of their way to accommodate my fiancée and I.

The flight itself was magical, as we had one of those rare days of complete visibility. Our pilot was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job of narrating the flight, while flying.

Hats off to the entire Air Kauai team!

Mark was our pilot and did a good job of describing what we saw out the window. The aircraft was clean and comfortable. Two of our party weighed over 240 pounds and Air Kauai charges 100% of the normal rate for this extra (comfort) seat. They also charge extra in cases where the combined weight of 2 passengers exceeds 420 pounds. These extra costs made the tour very expensive but still felt it was worth doing once. I was seated behind the pilot so since we went around the island clockwise, I had more ocean views and less land scenery than the other passengers. The ride was very smooth and was quieter than expected. The weather was great and perfect for photography.

The tour was amazing. The pilot took us to the gorges of the canyon, made sure that all of us (we were 6) could see the cliffs from all directions, there was lovely and relaxing music and he explained to us about the landscape, the past and the present of the island. He warned us against winds that would shake the helicopter a bit and was really kind. We enjoyed every moment.

Kinda disappointed if we need that we could pay an extra $50 to secure the two front seats we would have. Honestly, the seats in the back especially on the left side of the pilot is horrible. There’s a glare in the bubble all the photos and videos turn out horrible. If you’re 95 lbs and lighter you might be stuck in back if you’re flying with heavy people. Just disappointed in the seating and the view if you’re placed on the wrong side of the helicopter you’ll get an obstructed view especially depending on the route the pilot takes. Other than the seating arrangement, the pilot did an amazing job maneuvering the helicopter throughout the valley. He was informative as well!

Thank you for the feedback. You are correct in that all passengers body weights, pilot weight and fuel on board are all considered to make a safe weight and balance. I apologize you were disappointed in the seating arrangement but happy to hear that you enjoyed your pilot.

It was perfect. Perfectly safe and perfect excitement.

Our pilot Nick - with over 40 years of flying experience - navigated us safely over this incredible island. The whole trip was very smooth, as Nick told us he was following the birds. Seeing Kauaii from above is an unforgettable experience.

Also, Air Kauaii moved into a brand new and clean building instead of letting people wait directly at the airfield.

100% recommended.

This is definitely an awesome way to see the island Kauai! We got our tickets for a pretty good price on Groupon and were a little nervous at first but overall it was a highlight from our trip! Really cool views, great soundtrack, awesome pilot/guide. We were spoiled because we got to sit in the front, which offered terrific views.

Our two criticisms are this. First, they promised a video recording of the ride to be sold in a package with a picture. The video was never recorded and their consolation was to sell us the photo for a charge of $20.00. This was a little overpriced considering they made a mistake. We also intentionally did not take video on our phones because of the offer. We understand the error but would have appreciated a better price on the single photo. Second, we purchased the ticket through Groupon and did not get the time we initially wanted. It worked out but kind of messed up our plans for that day because it was moved from first thing in the morning to the afternoon. Be ready to check with the company to make sure the time is what you want and that the video will work.

Overall, great experience! Breathtaking views!

Thank you for the feedback. Although rare sometimes the video system malfunctions which is why we encourage folks to still take their own photos during the flight. Also like you said always best to call the vender directly to reconfirm all the details as some booking sites are a little vague on exact details/times. That said I am so happy you enjoyed your flight with us at Air Kauai!

Absolutely perfect. The scenery was spectacular, even emotional at times. Very well worth every penny. Our pilot/guide was knowledgeable and engaging, without being intrusive. The length of the tour was perfect. Not so short to feel like we didn't get our money's worth, not so long that it became boring.

Our family had an amazing time on this helicopter ride. Highly recommend this company, which also has a successful sister company on Maui. Perfect amount of time and we saw some absolutely jaw-dropping views of the Napali Coast, Waimea Canton, Hanalei Bay, and more. A great way to see this beautiful island. Book this trip, you won’t regret it! At a lower price than other helicopter tours ( just getting re-established in Kauai), it was a great deal. Only criticism is that they are a little tough to find since their signage is small. Look for the UPS building - it is in a shack around the corner.

We had amazing weather - truly perfect and an amazing pilot who did a great job. The problem was that all we were allowed to take on a "doors off" tour was a cell phone which produced poor video and poor photos. We couldn't take our camera although we noticed a young lady in a prior tour DID have a camera. The company lost our photos and the video on the helicopter didn't work. This is my 6th helicopter tour on the Hawaiian Islands and the first one in which I was disappointed.

I am sorry you were disappointed but yes only your cell phone is allowed on the doors off flight. This policy is also thoroughly explained before booking so had you wanted to bring a camera you could have chosen a doors ON tour instead. This policy is a strict company policy both for Air Kauai as well as our sister company on Maui Air Maui. We fly the AStar helicopter which has an exposed tail rotor therefore we cannot afford anything flying out and hitting that. Thankfully now that phone cameras have gotten better most folks understand and don't have a problem just using their phone. We have multiple helicopters and tours so I'm sure if you saw someone with a camera she was on the doors on tour not the doors off.
