We had a fabulous air tour provided by Kauai Helicopter Adventure. They promptly picked us up right at the cruise terminal. The six guests were instructed on protocols before boarding. The 50 minute air ride was smooth filled with spectacular scenery. I must add that I was lucky and very grateful to have a window seat.

This was an amazing excursion. I had never been in a helicopter before and was a little worried. But, it was great!! Our pilot showed us the entire island and explained what we were seeing as we went. Most of the island can not be accessed from a road so this is the best way to really see it. It was the best thing about our entire wonderful trip to Hawaii. Would love to do it again.

Amazing 50 minute tour of Kauai, including Grand Canyon, Na Pali cliffs and several waterfalls. There was also music over or headphones from Jurassic Park and Hawaii 50. You can also purchase a video of your flight which we have enjoyed showing to our friends.

This was the best part of my cruise to Hawaii! From start to finish, all went well. The very competent pilot was so knowledgeable, and eloquently explained where and what we were seeing. It was a beautiful day, and I have many wonderful memories with my photos. As we soared over this amazing island, listening to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, I shed a tear. My late husband was a pilot with Air Canada for 42 years, and this was his favourite song. Thank you Kauai helicopter for this dream adventure!

I was a little nervous about a helicopter ride that I have zero control over and not thrilled with the prices I was finding, but having the experience was very cool. Chrissy was our pilot and she did a great job of maneuvering the helicopter and describing all the cool stuff we saw in the canyon, Napali coastline, etc. Do this.

Helicopter over Kauai
February 20, 2023
First- safety was key and this company contacting us prior to confirmation of time/date with needing weight of each of us. We had a complete safety training and information prior to our turn for flight. 2nd- we had a full flight and all of us had great views of the island. 3rd- our pilot was very knowledgeable and made some turns around different areas so that we all saw everything. I highly recommend seeing this part of Hawaii and this company made it easy.

Cindy was a good pilot. She explained everything we flew over. I sat next to a window. Was fabulous, we had good weather. I can not remember the male who greeted us. He was from the island. Explained alot and was a GREAT PEOPLE PERSON. He was a smaller framed male. Beautiful smile. The lady who picked us up with shuttle was excellent too! Good Staff !

Having a bird's eye view of the Garden Island was the only way to see a lot of what it has to offer being many of the areas have no roads, and we only had 2 days. The crew was great, making sure everyone was informed and comfortable, especially if it was a first in a helicopter. The views were ahhhmazing from one side of the island to the other! Christie was great as pilot and tour guide! Definitely a must-do!

We had great time on our helicopter adventure on Kauai. We got to see things on the island we never would have seen any other way--it was beautiful. Our pilot was very knowledgeable about the island and gave us a great guided tour as we enjoyed the beauty of Kauai. Our pilot provided a safe, smooth trip--an excellent pilot. It was one of the best excursion we have ever been on.

Perhaps our Best Excursion!
July 18, 2019
We did 3 excursions while on vacation in Hawaii, and this helicopter adventure might be the best of them! Kauai is largely inaccessible by road or foot, so this is the best way to see this island. We took in close-up views of crevices, canyons, valleys, and great views of the Napali Coast. Our guide was excellent and knowledgable. Thank you, Sunshine Helicopters, for a great tour!

Our flight was everything we expected and more. The staff was very accommodating and our pilot Steve was amazing. We flew down in the Waimea Canyon saw more waterfalls than I could count. and Steve even found whales out in the Pacific playing. The weather was perfect which made visibility awesome. We were thrilled with our experience and would recommend it to anyone.

March 22, 2019
We were picked up promptly as scheduled from the cruise ship pier. From there we were taken to the office of the Helicopter company and shown a safety video. We then went to the airport, were given a flotation device and boarded the aircraft. We had a mixture of blue skies and off and on rain, but nothing inhibited great views of the interior of the island, the Waiamia canyon and the rugged coast line. We saw too many waterfalls to count, and a number of rainbows. Our pilot was very competent and knowledgeable. We would use them again without question!

It was a perfect day for this once in a lifetime experience. It did not start well as there was no one at the pier to meet me. I had received communication the day before and I then had to call their office. First they said I was scheduled for the next day. Of course I had proof. They wanted me to find my way to their office. I was blunt. They came and got me and all went well from then on.

We've been on a lot of cruises and traveled throughout the world. In our experience, the best way to see something so scenic as Kauai in the short time you're in port on a cruise is a Helicopter tour. It's a great overview, no pun intended, of the area and all that it has to offer.

What an amazing experience! The views of Kauai from a helicopter are the best. The island cannot be seen from roads so the air is the best.

The whole company was friendly and well-organized.

Our pilot, Bogart, gave great information as we flew over the stunning landscape of Kauai, with incredible views of the canyons, coastline and too numerous to count waterfalls. There were plenty of opportunities for pictures and he made sure we all had great views before moving on. The flight was very smooth. Our ground crew was informative as well as funny. The camera on the helicopter was not working on our flight, but we had the opportunity to purchase a DVD of the same flight done in ideal weather conditions by our pilot.
