I wish I could give this review 10 stars!
Communication was really great which always makes a big difference
We were made to feel comfortable starting from the gate to get to the helicopter.
Brian was a fantastic pilot and gave so much information regarding what we were seeing. He did 360 turns in a few spots to make sure everyone got a good view of the scenery. Even though I was in the front but stuck between Brian and my husband, I got some amazing pictures and videos.
The scenery was unbelievable! Just fantastic! I can't say enough great things about this tour! You don't want to miss this experience!

This was an excellent tour of the island. Our pilot, Andy, was very knowledgeable and showed us all the highlights. He also made sure to keep turning around so everyone could see the sights from their own side of the helicopter!

Unreal experience. From start to finish was a professional outfit. The island is beautiful, but unless you see it this way, you are missing out. The pilot was a native Hawaiian and had plenty of history and culture blended in with sightseeing. He timed the Jurassic Park waterfall part perfectly with the music on the headsets and it gave me goosebumps. The doors off experience will take your breath away as the scenery feels like it is within arms reach. The highlight, and there were many, was flying into the dormant volcano that started the Hawaiian island chain. Truly awe inspiring. Will do it again and again and again...

Amazing memories. The whole operation is run very efficiently. My wife and I felt very safe with the doors off and enjoyed Kelby‘s narrations over the sites on Kawai.
Worth every penny I would highly recommend this trip. Mahalo

Doors off added so much to the experience. It's very windy, so follow their instructions for long pants and closed shoes, and definitely tie your hair back.

Spectacular scenery was enhanced by the commentary of our knowledgeable, native born pilot Brodi. Loved his cultural, geographic, and geologic stories. Really added to the day. Felt super safe with him. He had a good playlist on the headphones too.

The ground crew plays an important part too. Makaio, Jennell, Bobby, Jackson & Rob. Kudos to all of you.

This was the highlight of our time on Kauai.

Hands down the best hour I have ever EVER spent while on vacation, words can’t explain how utterly amazing this experience is…but I’ll try. Even if you are only just a little adventurous, this is one of those cathartic moments in life, flying in the wide open Hawaiian air with no doors on the helicopter & being splashed by the water from a waterfall…is simply awesome. BUT do not book through trip advisor, the booking does not go through & the ticket Trip Advisor send you is invalid. You will find the charge will also not go through on your c.c. too. You will receive a receipt & a Trip Advisor ticket, but it’s a trip advisor ‘.jpg’ ticket that is NOT sent from the helicopter company & will not save you a place on their tour. You must call the helicopter company directly to book your seat. At the bottom of the Trip Advisor booking page is the helicopter companies telephone number, again, please call directly & speak to the operator at the company. As mentioned, it will most likely be the most incredible thing you will experience while hanging out in paradise.

The doors-off tour was amazing! The Air Kauai staff is extremely helpful, providing a next day booking for the doors off tour with a pilot with decades of experience. I would highly recommend them for their professionalism, adventure, and dedication to safety. Thank you!!

Amazing - I've also never been as scared in my life sitting on the edge. Warning there aren't any grab handles in the back seat, when the helicopter banks to the side you need to trust that one seatbelt buckle with your life. :)

... I'd do it again.

Definitely a bucket list check for me.

This was a first time ride for all of us (4). Air Kauai made us feel comfortable from beginning to end. The pilots knowledge of the area, and the spectacular views can not be beat, in addition to the little extra to see the whales. Everything was easy to complete, from payment, extra purchases, and pilot gratuity. Highly recommend this company for your next adventure!

There is no way to adequately express the VALUE and meaning this tour had for all of us! We had saved to come to Kauai last year for my husbands' 60th and son's 15th. Well, then Covid happened so this year we were fortunate to come for the 16-61 tour! 10 days before the trip we were told by a family member that we had to do a Helicopter Tour and definitely doors off! We were lucky to secure a spot (EVERYTHING has been booked for a long time) and we are so grateful we got to Air Kauai! Makile (sp?), Bobby and our pilot Kelby were EXCEPTIONAL making our adventure a lifetime memory our family gets to share! AND we didn't know but found out we also got a video of the whole experience videod while we were flying! Truly so, so grateful for this experience. If you're going to do a tour this is the organization to use and definitely do it doors off! You're safe and they make sure of it!
