This is definitely the best way to see the island and Moloki! The sea cliffs were incredible. We saw many whales and the beauty of the lush inside of the crater. Our pilot was friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable- WITHOUT sounding like he’s done this over and over again. One thing to keep in mind- if you are prone to motion sickness- take a Gravol /Dramamine an hour beforehand. The aircraft isn’t shaky but it takes some tight turns to be able to see from different angles. Highly recommend this tour.

The real treasures of Kauai can only be view by helicopter. The staff at the counter was great, when they found out it was our anniversary they threw in a extra little gift. Our pilot was very knowledgeable about the history and geography of the area and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable while flying.
