Amazing Fly Over!

I wanna start by saying that Oleathia was amazing in helping us out. We booked our helicopter tour and we switched the the days and times a couple of times. They where able to switched out our reservations every time I requested it. They where fast in responding back to me. The flight was awesome, beautiful view of the island and the pilot would tell us everything about each place we where flying. I will definitely be booking with them if I come back to visit the island again. Thank you for a beautiful fly around the island.

Unbelievable views
, Sep 2021
The company was very professional. The experience was great. The pilot was an informative narrator for the flight. I liked that he flew the helicopter so both sides could view the sights making it so there were no “bad” seats. I felt safe and comfortable. The views were unbelievable.

Aloha, I'm so glad you mentioned no bad seats as that is one of the most things customers are usually worried about. So very glad you enjoyed your trip with us. Thank you for the review ❤

Memorable Experience
, Aug 2021
Very professional staff. Comfortable seats and we felt safe. Despite the noise of the engine, etc. the headphones were sufficient in cutting as much noise out, as possible. Our pilot, Russell, did a great job and we could hear him very clearly. The windows were great and we could could take great pictures even from the back seats. Kauai is beautiful!

Took the 9am ride with perfect conditions. Best way to end our Kauai trip after hiking around Have a and Waimea Canyon parks. Views from the middle back seat were obstructed but still enjoyable, definitely jealous of the front 2 seats. Pilot still did his best to manuever the helicopter in such a way that everyone was able to get good views. Every single moment we were in absolute awe. Ride actually lasted 35-40min rather than 55.
