Do it! I was a little apprehensive since I’d never been in a helicopter before but knowing that this is the best way to see the Waimea canyon and the NaPali coast I had to do it. We had a great pilot, Bogart, who briefed us on island history the entire time pointing out landmarks. We were inside the volcano crater with a dozen waterfalls. It was fabulous!
My traveling companion and I were grinning ear to ear for hours afterwards!

Spectacular way to see the island.
Worth it to fly out of Princeville if you are staying out of the North Shore instead of flying out of Lihue.
70% of the island is not accessible by humans so highly recommend this.
We flew after a thunderstorm and the views were breathtaking. Our pilot was funny, humble, and informative.
A special thanks to these people squeezing us in at their 9am flight.
We originally were with another company but had to cancel due to thunderstorms.
We really wanted to do the helicopter tour so we switched to this tour and they made it happen at a time that worked for us.
It was my bf and mine’s first helicopter ride. It was a truly special and extraordinary experience for us!
We surprised our grown up kids with a helicopter tour of beautiful Kauai last week. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. We have been to this enchanted island six times, but to see it from the air was amazing, and offered a phenomenal perspective on “The Garden Isle”. We took the first flight of the day at 8:00 am, and the weather was beautiful, clear and calm. We saw Waimea Canyon, a zillion waterfalls, the beautiful Napali Coast, and best of all, we got to share that experience with each other!
Our pilot was excellent, and his narration and the music played was great and set a wonderful tone for our journey. I am not a huge fan of heights, but was not the least bit fearful, it was such a lovely serene flight, and was just perfectly perfect in every way!
Spring for the treat of your life! It’s not cheap, but you’re worth it! :-)
