glorious island."

"If you only have time for one activity, this is the one to do! The pilot was excellent and very smooth. They know Kauai very well and show you the best of it."

John and Linda Riggs

Eurocopter AStar Helicopter flying over the Na Pali Coastline of Kauai

"This was, without question, the most extraordinary experience of its kind we've ever enjoyed. Your commentary was knowledgeable, articulate, and fascinating. I am sure some of these pictures will wind up in a magazine somewhere. Thanks again for a lovely 1.5 hours."

Our 60-65 minute tours are in the air a minimum of 60 minutes. Other helicopter tour companies on Kauai offer 45, 50 or 55-60 minute “one-hour” tours. By offering more “in-air” minutes, our pilots can go slower, fly lower, and make more turns along Na Pali and in Kauai’s spectacular canyons. Compare the dollar-per-minute prices and you will find that our tours provide great value for your money.

“Actual in-flight time for the around-the-island tour should be no less than 60 minutes, or Kauai will appear to whiz past your window, limiting your opportunities to explore the more remote terrain inside the island’s perimeter, or to take satisfying photographs.”

Kauai Underground Guide

“Never take a flight of less than an hour; you will only get your appetite whetted.”

For some, an hour over Kauai’s scenic wonders is still not long enough. If you are interested in a longer tour, ask about our 90-95 minute tour or charter a helicopter for an exclusive tour or photography flight.
