When the helicopter accended along the mountain range, the thrill and view was unbelievable. We did the door off tour with longer time on waterfalls. Napali coast is amazing. Never saw anything like the view here. Definitely would recommend this to anyone visiting the island....More

We really enjoyed our tour even if it was cloudy. Forrest, the pilot, made sure we got good pictures and was quite informative.

How can anyone not give this place five stars?! At first we were hesitant to do the tour because of the price ($274 per person for one hour, plus tip), but in the end, I believe it was well worth it. This company doesn't have...More

Great pilot Ronnie from Austria . Very personal close up tour. A must do trip. Bring warm clothing and hair tie down if going doors off. Highly recommend doors off.

The doors-off helicopter tour was the highlight of our stay on Kauai. I'll admit, the first impression of Mauna Loa Helicopter Tours was not great - they double booked us and when we tried to check in, the employee was casually dismissive ("we probably tried...More

Aloha, All camera or cellphones must be secured with a wrist or neck strap, otherwise they will not be permitted during the flight with the doors off. If flying with the doors on, you may have loose items.
