Almost all the helicopter tour companies are good on Kauai. You should go to one that is closest to where you are staying on the island. If you are staying on the North Shore, Hawaii Helicopters is good. Enjoy!

Last Dec. we took a tour with South Seas out of Lihue (I believe). It was wonderful. Pilot was Rob. He did an outstanding job and we felt very comfortable. Andrea

We took the Safari Helicopter tour and thought it was wonderful. They film the entire flight, including when you are getting on, and it is available for you at the end ($15-20). Made a great momento. We saw everything imaginable on the island. If possible sit in the front seats. Think you can see a little better. Highly recommend.

Tom, I would by far recommend Jack Harter helicopters. And go ahead and spring for the 90 minute flight. 60 minutes is just a tease and leaves you wanting more. The windows open, which is great for taking pictures. The pilot was very informative. We had four people, so it was like our own little charter. They had two-way radios so we could talk to the pilot and ask to to hover a little longer here or go a bit closer there. They also have clearance to go close up (not all companies do) - a couple times, it was like I could reach out and touch the walls of the cliffs! On the shorter flights, the pilots just whiz by. As we we hovering very close to a waterfall, I saw Safari go whizzing by way far up. I did my research and Jack Harter has an excellent safety record. Very personable people, too. I don't think you'll be disappointed. A helicopter trip is a "must do" on Kauai - don't settle for a chintzy outfit! (by the way: CAPITAL LETTERS ARE LIKE SCREAMING AT SOMEONE!!!)
