    Just Do This!
    Charles_M, May 2022
    It may seem expensive, but, this really is a must do. I loved the fly overs of the NaPali Coast. Absolutely beautiful. The open door was really cool - you didn’t have to peer through a rain spattered or dirty window to see the sights. I wish I could have brought my gopro which was on a gimbal, but, understand that the wind really whips through the cabin so you could lose handle of it. They do give you a necklace to put your phone in so you can shoot - its hard to keep the camera steady though with the wind in the cabin. I think the best seats are the outside seat behind the pilot, and the front seat next to the pilot. They number your positions so you may want to ask which seat #s those are so you can get them. The only improvement I would suggest is to fly up and down the NaPali coast so the people on the outside seats have the experience of going along the cliffs.

    Fantastic Experience
    Shelly_Z, May 2022
    The scenery was absolutely amazing. The pilot Kelby was Great and his music selection was awesome. Perfect way to see Waimea Canyon and Na Pali Coast. Having 4 adults in back seat was definitely uncomfortable. The two people in the front should be instructed to stay in their area when taking pictures instead of being allowed to lean behind the pilot. From the back seat she blocked a lot of photo ops.
    Fantastic experience, do it!

    Unparalleled birds-eye views make this experience a must! Took my wife and two adult daughters in the doors off helicopter and felt completely safe while taking in unobstructed views of the spectacular scenes. Pilot Adam was fantastic and very helpful with information about everything we saw.
    Outstanding experience!
    erika_s, May 2022

    Michael_W, May 2022
    Awesome views and doors off really enhanced the views. Pilot was awesome. Perfect weather was also a plus
    Highly recommended door's off trip
    Lisa_W, May 2022
    Wow! Very impressive. Adam gave great commentary about what we were seeing. The flight was smooth. Highly recommend taking the doors off tour. It was a bit cool in the air so we were very glad we wore pants. They provide jackets. Cell phones are secured by lanyards they provide, so we were able to take awesome photos. Video of trip also available for purchase. What a trip!
    Randy_B, May 2022
    Not sure why this company had fewer reviews. All the employees were super helpful and kind and the pilot was very knowledgeable about the island. Doors off made the pictures and our experience so much better. Five stars from us!

    I was a bit nervous going...
    Satchel_S, Apr 2022
    I was a bit nervous going into this, as it was my first time on a helicopter, but our pilot Adam was fantastic and made the experience feel very safe and manageable! We saw some incredible sights and parts of the island that are impossible to get to any other way -- would recommend for sure!
