I couldn't go to Hawaii and not do a helicopter tour. I received several great recommendations for helicopter tours on TA, but I decided to go with Mauna Loa since they offer the doors-off tours. It's pricey, but well worth it. Our tour guide, Bruno, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the island. He took us over countless beautiful waterfalls,... More

Our doors-off, private helicopter tour of Kauai with Mauna Loa absolutely made our trip. We had been shopping around with tour companies and decided to spend a little more for a private tour to ensure the best view and to have a more personal experience with the pilot. This turned out to be absolutely the way to go. We were... More

We have been home for 2 weeks now and still haven't stopped talking about our doors off helicopter tour. We did the 1:30 tour and it was more than AMAZING! Our pilot was Matt, who was very informative and fun to be with. I have to say the thing we liked best of Matt over other pilots might be his... More

My husband and I visited Kauai last week and we had an amazing experience with Mauna Loa helicopter tour. We took an afternoon 3pm tour. Our pilot, Matt, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He took the time to answer all our questions while showing us a good time. Breathtaking views accompanied Matt's commentary and just the right kinda music made... More

Our helicopter tour with Mauna Loa Helicopters on Kauai was the most memorable experience of our entire trip - it made our year! We were supposed to go on our first full day on the island and arrived at the bus ready to go and were weighed only for the girls to tell us we wouldn't be going as a... More

Do not miss this trip! Plan for it in your budget ahead of time, because it is singlehandedly the most amazing thing you can do on the island of Kauai. Our pilot, Hadrien was a wealth of information and made us so comfortable. Going doors-off made the experience all the more memorable because we had no reflection off the glass... More

My husband and I had booked this tour early in the morning. Our pilot was Ian, and he did a ablsolut super job! The helicopter was tiny but perfect for our tour and still I felt very save. Even if it shaked a bit at the beginning...this was fun! It was just Ian, my husband and I in this helicopter... More

My wife and I did a "doors off" 1 hour tour. Breathtakingly beautiful, stunning views. The staff was attentive and very thoughtful, anticipating (and neutralizing) concerns / anxiety before they emerged. One of the coolest things I've ever done in my life.

Had a fantastic flight with Mauna Loa Helicopters Tours yesterday. Were blessed with a super clear day over Mt. Waialeale the wettest spot on this earth. Our Pilot Matt was fantastic and told us it was one of the few times in the last four months he had been able to fly over this part of Kauai. We were blown... More
