We did the doors off tour, and felt very safe! The pilot was amazing and very informative. There is nothing like seeing the beautiful views and colors from above! Highly recommended! Mahalo!

We flew doors off and it was really cool, a little terrifying when the helicopter turned and you're looking straight down but still awesome. Highly advise wearing a jacket for doors off.
