My son said it best: this experience single handedly made our Kauai trip worthwhile. We spent a week in Maui before coming to Kauai. Relatively speaking, the water activities and overall organization are far superior in Maui. So we felt somewhat let down for the first few days in Kauai - we didn’t get the rental car that we reserved, unannounced road closures prevented us from hiking the Kalalau trail, the botanical garden turned out over hyped, the famed Tunnel beach was a waste land compared to the Honolua Bay in Maui for snorkeling … But the safari helicopter tour changed all that! Joe (our pilot) was a great narrator as well a pilot. We lifted off with the music of Indiana John’s and spent the next 40 min in pure heaven! Not only we got to see the astonishingly beautiful Na Pali coast from above and aside, our pilot took us through the Miamea canyon and several other valleys, canyons and water falls. It was truly magical and unmatched by anything else that we have experienced before. Highly recommended

I'd absolutely recommend this experience to anyone who is on the fence. I will say that this was my first time in a helicopter, and my first helicopter tour, but the views of Kauai blew my mind. I had heard from several people prior to my trip that the views of the island from the air left them in tears; I thought that was just a silly exaggeration. But the views were that spectacular! The Safari crew were all very kind and accommodating. While the fit in the helicopter was snug, it wasn't uncomfortable. I had one of the middle seats, but even then I still had great views of the waterfalls, canyons, and coastline. I wasn't sure what to expect from the Canyon Landing portion, but it was a pleasant way to break up the flying, and we got to meet a really kind gentleman who was helping to try and conserve much of Hawaii's native plants. Overall, would recommend: great views/experience. Always felt safe. Price was cheaper than other competitors.

The sights are incredible!! Definitely take a helicopter ride. The landing at the canyon was so impressive. Our guide was new to the company but seemed well trained or he's an great BS'er. He had a lot of knowledge about the area and people which was very interesting. Awesome flying through the Waimea Canyon. Saw the west & north coasts. Beautiful waterfalls everywhere. Just like planes - the middle seats suck. Right side & front is best views

I know that our pilot does the tour multiple times a day and his dialog must feel worn to him but he did such a great job that I couldn't tell and it seemed as if a friend was just giving us an expert look around. Also as a pilot myself, he was very smooth in his transitions to hover that you'd think he was integrated into the helicopter.
