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!

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.

Everything about this tour was amazing. The service was excellent, the pilot was professional, he showed us all beautiful places of the island, flying in between the mountains isles was really amazing, so many waterfalls. Na Pali coast is a one of a kind, amazing! amazing! Highly recommend this tour, a flight of a lifetime. Thanks so much to all of the crew. ❤️

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.

We did this on the morning of Mar 1. Disappointed overall, feel like we didn’t get what we paid for. The 45 to 50 minute tour lasted 37 minutes. There were no weather problems etc, to cause a shorter ride… perhaps just profits for the company. It was a pretty day with clear weather. They wouldn’t allow us to take our own pics from the safe area in front of the copter but took their own that we could later buy. The pilot was interesting and knowledgeable and it seemed safe. Back row has limited views. We were told to wear dark clothing for best pic results but others wore bright sparkly clothes which ruined most of our pics. Maybe all the companies run a shorter flight time than advertised but I’ll shop around next time.

Aloha and thank you for the feedback. If I can kindly ask that you contact us directly so we can look into the flight and the flight time. We are required by the FAA to log the departure and arrival times of each tour. If you paid for a 45-50 minute flight it definitely should not have been 37 minutes. We can also check the video of the flight for how long it was. Please email us directly at letsfly@airkauaihelicopters.com so we can clear this up for you. Thank you!

Our pilot Brodi was great. Felt at ease in the air. Learned a lot about the island coasts, interior canyons and falls. The staff was both friendly and helpful.
Make sure to bring your phone and take lots of pictures and videos.
They sell a flash drive video of your personal experience, but we opted to use our own stills and videos to remember our trip.

Air Kauai Amazing tour was absolutely awesome!! I was very nervous about going initially, but cannot say enough great things about the whole experience. The staff were great from start to finish. Our pilot, Adam was fantastic! The activity seemed somewhat expensive, but it was worth every penny and we will definitely do it again!

Thank you very much for the wonderful review and recommendation! We do understand there are many activities to choose from and a helicopter sure isn't the cheapest but I am so happy to hear you felt it was worth it! I will be sure to share this with Adam and our staff here.

This was a great experience for myself and my wife. Had a blast seeing all the lush greenery that Kauai has to offer. Got to see the Grand Canyon of the Pacific and several amazing waterfalls. The Napili coast was a sight to behold. Got to see several caves and secret beaches. Our pilot was friendly and answered all of our questions. Highly recommend Air Kauai.

Adam was an excellent pilot and tour guide. I wish the check-in process was a bit more condensed as there was a bit of waiting around, but everything else was fantastic. We were on the fence between this tour and a 2 hour one, but this was the perfect amount of time to see everything. Highly recommend!

Mahalo for the recommendation! We do have a little extra time for our check in procedures because the traffic on Kauai can be terrible so we just want to make sure everyone makes it and does not miss the flight if they are running a little late. Thank you again for the recommendation!
