Same company that the cruise line uses. Blue Hawaiian Tours. You save by booking direct and they will send a shuttle to come pick you up even though website says they won't. Call before to make sure. Request it in the comments when you book online. Highlight of the trip! They offer this other islands. I do believe Kauai is the island to do this. Jurassic Park Falls, Napali Coast. Definitely take something for motion sickness if you have issues. I have vertigo issues and I had a patch for trip, but it did bother my ears and make me feel a little ill toward the end. It was windy that day and that made the difference. I would still do it again! Read Less

After researching every helicopter tour on the island, Mauna Loa was the best choice. We didn't want to be crammed into a helicopter with a bunch of strangers and not be able to see. Mauna Loa is only slightly more expensive and worth it to fly with your group ONLY! Everything was great from booking over the phone, checking in, and flight. Best money I ever spent. My husband and I flew with our doors off, and my friend had her door on. Very accommodating and an incredible experience! Music and commentary from our pilot during the flight was awesome! Read Less

FANTASTIC: ours was called "Heaven and Earth" and started out with the Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tour which was the most awesome and beautiful experience of my life. Pilot Barrett took 5 of us in the helicopter for a 55 minute tour of the entire island of Kauai. We saw so much beauty on this excursion that it is hard to describe. Waimea Canyon, Na Pali Coast close up, the Jurassic Park Waterfall, ocean coral reefs all at 7:30 AM. The pilot turned the copter so that both sides could take photos of the extreme scenic beauty. He narrated the tour and played music which corressponded to the things we were seeing. At the end, we had opportunity to buy a flash drive with our tour recorded on it; it was WELL WORTH the $40 it cost. The land portion of our trip with guide Domi was nearly as sensational as Domi obviously loves his island, his job, and his culture. He drove us all around showing us beautiful beaches, lush mountain scenery, he gave the ladies plumeria to wear in our hair. A picnic lunch was provided and Domi played the Ukelele during it. He was so amazing and informative, I did not want the day to end. Read Less

This one we booked on our own. We read the reviews from the rides booked thru HAL and were not impressed. We booked Jack Harter Helicopters and cannot say enough about them. They were efficient throughout the process and answered all our questions before we got there. They picked us up at the pier. The ride was the most thrilling thing we have done in a long time. There are places in Kauai that are only seen from the air. We were not disappointed. This was a 65 minute ride, compared to 45 minutes with the HAL excursion. Highly recommend Jack Harter. (The helicopter views in Jurassic Park are in Kauai as well as in Maui.) Their driver took us back to town, which is within walking distance from the ship. We had a delicious lunch overlooking the ocean. Read Less

Amazing views, the canyon and surrounding vegetation was amazing! Only issue, my husband was in the middle rear and couldn't see much due to other passengers and reflections on the windows. Absolutely worth doing over and over.

Facility and staff were very professional and friendly. We were shown a brief training video. There were 5 of us and we were all able to go in the same helicopter. The pilot was excellent and gave good commentary. The scenery was indescribable / spiritual. To be able to experience seeing parts of Waimea Canyon, Napali and other areas unique to the planet which can only be seen by air is a lifetime experience. It was worth every penny and we would do it again! Read Less

This was a close second to being our favorite excursion. The helicopter tour was amazing, we saw places most people will never see. The land portion of the tour was excellent, Our guide Dommi is a true Hawaiian and the best in the business. He taught us about the culture, the volcanoes, plants , birds and Kauai. We learned the Hula and our guide sang an Hawaiian love song for us. We felt like Ohana when he dropped us off at the ship. Read Less

Heaven & Earth Helicopter and driving tour, Kauai: The portion which we completed was fabulous! The helicopter ride was breathtaking over the beautiful island of Kauai. Definitely a highlight of our trip! You will see sites that blow you away. Lots of film sites, a valley we flew into that was just awe-inspiring. But it was Friday and we were winding down and exhausted from 3 NCL excursions and several rounds of golf so we decided to forego the "Earth" portion of this excursion. There were shuttles which were headed back to the ship after the helicopter ride so we informed the "Heaven" crew who uninformed the "Earth" crew that we would not be joining the remainder of the tour. We were not offered, did not ask for, and did not expect a partial refund as this was our choice. We ran into people who rode with us in the copter later on that day and they said the Earth portion was very interesting and they really enjoyed themselves. Though we did not complete the tour, with the other couple's feedback, I feel confident giving this tour an excellent rating. Read Less
