What people are saying about Kapaʻa

It was our first flight. There was excitement, anticipation and fear, but Safari Helicopter was very professional and the tour was absolutely gorgeous. Worth every penny. Our captain Kate explained a lot to us and contributed to a great atmosphere. Kauai by helicopter is an absolute MUST DO!

Fantastic view of Waimea. Our pilot was a great guide with a lot local knowledge. It's important to wear black clothing and pants because I have a lot of photos with reflections of a bare leg and flowered shirt.

Excellent experience I will never forget. Beautiful nature, which you only can see out of a helicopter. You have a fantastic view because of the big windows of the helicopter.

This experience went beyond our expectations!! The scenery was surreal. Our tour guide/pilot was excellent and certainly added to our experience with his knowledge!

10/10 recommend! Our pilot was amazing, as was the crew and staff.
