The shuttle bus picked us up at our hotel on time and the driver was really nice. He took car of us from shuttle to helicopter. Bring 4 quarters for the locker if you have to lock anything up BTW. The Pilot was really nice and the tour was great. My wife and our 3 children went and all loved it. We did the shorter tour with doors on and it was perfect for us. Makani Kai took care of us! Mahalo!

It was a great tour. I had trouble understanding the pilot. I was on the side of the helicopter that was facing land and did not get much of a view of ocean.
