Nothing between you and Na Pali but a seatbelt!
Chris_L

Great trip! The only way to see inaccessible parts of the island. Our pilot, Guy, was such a calm and relaxed person. The perfect pilot for a passenger facing fear of heights in a doors off helicopter. If you are prone to motion sickness, I recommend taking something before the trip. However, our pilot said to let him know if either of us was queasy. I'm sure he would have modified the flight path with more gentle turns. The scenery was spectacular. Our pilot spotted a whale spouting and went over the sea so we could see it from above. Then back to the sights over land. He went in and out of many canyons and craters and we had plenty of opportunity to both see the sights and to photograph them as well. We highly recommend!

It was so exciting and beautiful that you never realized you were in a helicopter with doors off. The landscape kept Your attention before you knew it time was up. We recommend this excursion at beginning of your stay then you can decide what areas to explore further. Our first helicopter ride & it was fantastic as was our pilot Chrissy. All staff was welcoming and friendly put you at ease right away. WE LOVED THIS EXCURSION IMMENSELY!!! Thanx to everyone!! Deb & Michael Fisher

From our 7 year old grandson: "It was loud and cool and awesome. My favorite part was we were flying really high in the air." From the mom: "Flying without the door is not to be missed. I felt like I was in my own private David Attenborough special. Our pilot was sweet, knowledgable and skilled."

This was our one big vacation splurge and it was worth every penny! Amazing views, polite and friendly crew, and I felt very safe in the well experienced pilot's hands. We were able to ask questions and communicate while in flight, and having the doors open with no middle seat made picture taking a breeze. Most of this island is inaccessible any other way. Do it!

No better way to see the island, especially the Napali Coast. Be prepared for the lack of doors and wind and noise, but it makes taking photos super easy. Highly recommend.

While you pay a bit more for this thrilling experience, it rewards with gifted, experienced pilot Guy Croydon whose geological commentary and fascinating narration opened a whole new view of Kauai’s history and formation. It was the highlight of our holiday!! Open door is the way to go! Briefing was thorough and reassuring.

Doors off Helicopter Adventure
Julie_D
, Dec 2021
We had an absolutely amazing tour of the island with our pilot, Guy. Check-in was quick and easy. We were headed out to the helicopter within 15 minutes of our arrival. We were given a precise safety review prior to departure. Once in the air, Guy did a wonderful job of narrating the scenery below. This was the only way we could have seen this much of the island during our time on Kauai. The hour long adventure was unreal! And there is certainly an adrenaline rush aspect to having the doors off during this experience. We would highly recommend this company! If you’re even considering it, do it!!!

Excellent view of one of the most impressive erosion evolvement of planet earth. Hundreds of water streams racing into the valleys of the island. Excellent mixture of sun rays vs. foggy/misty experience. The helicopter pilot Kyle was providing excellent island information which was super cool. Great organization and execution. We did the flight at the end of our Kauai stay and we’re able to see all hiking achievements (Kalalau trail and others in the Waimea Canyons and around the island) and island activities of the last 9 days from a different perspective. Perfect way to say goodbye to one of the most geological interesting island. Thanks for this opportunity. Go for it!
