We were called the day before and asked to change reservation. Even received a text that morning confirming our reservation. Arrived on time checked in waited around then was told mechanical issues with helicopter flight was canceled. Drove 2 hours waste of day. A couple there was canceled day before then canceled again. Read the reviews. This is reoccurring with this company. DO NOT RECOMMEND using this company.

Aloha Michael and Lori, We truly apologize for the necessity of cancelling your reservation. This sometimes occurs last minute with no notice for weather and unfortunately maintenance issues.Safari has been providing safe quality tours for over 35 years. This is due in part to our policy of Safety first! We will not fly if weather is sketchy, a quality tour is not possible due to low clouds or if there is a maintenance issue with the helicopter.

The tour was disappointing. We arrived early as requested, but upon arriving at the heliport the pilot and helicopter were not there for our scheduled 8:25 am departure. Instead we finally took off at 8:45 am for our described 55 minute flight. We returned to the heliport in advance of the next tour scheduled for departure at 9:25 am. So our flight was at most 40 minutes!

Also, I was unfortunately seated in the rear seat, in the middle and every photo opportunity was blocked by the passengers sitting on my left or right!

For the cost, I didn’t receive the value expected! Very disappointed overall!

We booked a private tour for 4 and were very happy with the experience. This was a first helicopter flight for most of us, so there were some nerves and apprehension prior to the tour. But afterward, we were all so glad we decided to do it! Everyone we interacted with.. the drivers, office staff, and pilot, were very friendly and professional, making the experience even more enjoyable! It was a wonderful way to view the beautiful island! We would highly recommend flying with this company!

Worst experience ever

They need to learn how to respect the time they confirm and time they sell to fly. Of the approximate hour promised the pilot landed in 40 minutes. They delayed the boarding as they were waiting for other passengers. Huge mistake…waste of money and time!!!

It was a great trip! Pilot Howie identified cool places, shared island history and some of his local favorite spots!

This was our first visit to Kawai Hawaii. It was our second day in, and it was the best way to experience the island. From the moment we talked to Diane, the receptionist and Brian from Idaho to Kate the pilot everything was exceptional. Great team, great experience.

YIKES. I've been on a number of helicopter flights while on vacation and never felt unsafe, until today. Unpleasant experience for sure, I am not qualified to know how unsafe it was but I was terrified as visibility was zero at some points.

If you need a shuttle from the airport, make sure you call the Safari Helocopter office. The company shuttles the passengers from the meeting place to the airport and back as part of the tour and can probably provide transportation. We flew in for the tour and almost missed it due to non-existent ground transportation.
The tour was great. Howie was our pilot and he gave us a beautiful aerial view of Kauai and countless waterfalls that we would never have seen. We especially loved the soundtrack he chose for the Na Pali coast.
In addition to being extremely skilled and informative, Howie was very compassionate with a young passenger who got air sick. He tried very hard to minimize the motion and speed of his turns to help alleviate the youngster’s nausea.
I highly recommend the Deluxe Waterfall Safari for helicopter tours of Kauai.

Exploring the Na Pali Coast through the helicopter tour provided by this company was truly exceptional. The breathtaking views and seamless operation left a lasting impression on our journey. The professionalism of the staff, combined with the awe-inspiring landscapes, made for an unforgettable experience. From start to finish, the tour showcased the beauty of the Na Pali Coast, and the helicopter company's commitment to safety and customer satisfaction enhanced the overall enjoyment of our adventure. Highly recommended for those seeking a remarkable aerial perspective of this remarkable destination.
