Top of the World at The Garden Island 24/01/20
Jan 2020
Flying on an helicopter over a beautiful island is always a remarkable experience. And with the Maverick Helicopters team, it goes beyond expectations!
We had some issues arriving on time and the team and Chris were absolutely delightful and made all possible changes to accommodate us, going as far as an available upgrade to do so. With this already great first impression, we went on to be charmed by our pilot Toon Deveuster who made sure not only that we would get the best shots of the impressive nature Kauai has to offer, but also to give us in-depth knowledge of the tour and you could feel his passion for the island and his job.
So in quick summary it was an absolutely worthwhile experience, with perfect scores on service and the best way to view one of the most beautiful and complete islands of the world!

Mar 2020 • Family
This is an excellent way to see the island and all its very unique features most of which you can not see any other way. We were extremely fortunate to strike an unbelievable clear day so the top of the mountain was in view. As an added bonus we got to see some whales. Our pilot Chase was excellent with lots of local knowledge which he was only too happy to share with us. If you can only fit in one tour while on the island this is it. Scenery and views were magnificent.

Breathtaking. Pilot was cherry on the cake.
I don't know where or how to begin. This is hands down one of the highlights in my life (I'm an avid traveler in my mid 30s). Our Pilot, Toon (virtual high five to you!), made the tour even greater. We very much enjoyed the added personal touch and it made our trip extra special.

The take-off is from a small heliport, which gives the tour a private VIP feeling. It was a nice bonus compared to others who leave from the crowded airport. Furthermore, it was on the way to the Waimea Canyon, which was a perfect fit in our schedule to visit the southern part of Kaua'i.

After take-off, before we knew it, we were surrounded by a handful of waterfalls (that are seen in Jurassic Park).
Later on, the views later of the Na Pa Li cliffs are just phenomenal. It's hard to comprehend the vastness and the greatness of it all. We even saw whales!

At one point, we saw a waterfall from the top flow all the way into the ocean. Simply stunning.

In a nutshell, we highly recommend and would it again:)

Amazing Views with an Amazing Pilot
What an experience!!! Our pilot Aaron, #humblyhandsome was so awesome. He has thee best jokes and makes you feel comfortable and calm during the trip. Took the trip with my family...4 and 10 year old daughters and the youngest was a little nervous, as was I. However, it was totally great and we want to do it again! Saw about 4 whales which was the highlight of our flight, and also flew into the canyon where the volcano was. This is definitely the best tour!!

Jaw dropping views with an amazing pilot
Jan 2020
We had the opportunity to start our trip to Hawaii with the 55 minute helicopter tour of the Na Pali Coast, Waimea Canyon, the north coast by Hanalei Bay an concluding with an amazing view of Mt. Waialeale's Weeping Wall. Our pilot was the epitome of professional and confidence inspiring, which was helpful with our group including a one year old toddler. He was a wealth of information about the geography, flora and fauna and history of Kauai. He made a point of turning at each point of interest so all aboard got a 1st class view. We also found it convenient that they flew out of the Port Allen Airport near Hanapepe, which is convenient for those of us staying in the Poipu area and gets you to the areas of interest much quicker.
There is no other way to fully appreciate this incredible island, an we could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you Tone and Maverick Helicopters.

Our pilot #humblyhandsome, Aaron, was entertaining and informative. They were very accommodating and even split our group into two helicopters. Awesome views including mother whale and her calf. Would highly recommend. Grandma went who is prone to motion sickness and enjoyed with no issues.

Incredible experience! The equipment is truly a comfortable and offered tremendous sight lines for all. Our pilot Ton was amazing as well. His skill as a pilot and passion for creating a great experience for all set this trip apart from many others. I’ve flown with Maverick on Maui as well and would strongly recommend to all. Mahalo!

Blown Away, only way to really see and understand Kauai
Nov 2019 • Couples
For one, Maverick has excellent luxury helicopters. If you’re going to spend the money on a helicopter, you might as well use theirs.

Our Pilot, Toon, really went out of his way to make us feel welcomed, at ease, and make sure we had fun without making it feel like you’re on a Disney trip with some lame tour guide. He was able to articulate all the best points of interest on the one hour flight, he provided great music to complement the trip, and still was able to share the scenery with both sides of the helicopter so no one felt left out.

Maverick helicopters also provided me a military discount, I’m a young veteran, which was really cool and saved more than $50 a ticket for a 50 minute flight. After the helicopter we did a catamaran ride for a sunset cruise and I can tell you right now that a helicopter ride is uncomparable. I highly recommend riding helicopter in the morning, the way the sun rises it really keeps the shadows in the right place so that you can still see everything. The catamaran in the evening was a terrible way to see the coast as you really couldn’t visualize what you were actually seeing. Being in a helicopter and being able to dip through certain mountains and canyons really makes and everything fit into a better perspective.

I would completely skip a catamaran ride (we rode Captain Andy’s and had the dinner cruise) as in your money on the helicopter for 50 minutes. One of the best experiences I could’ve wished for!

Thx Toon for rockin it!

The only way to see the beauty of the Island.

50 minutes of flight time over the Island from the canyons to the coastlines. Incredible. An absolute must do. And Maverick was terrific. The Helicopter was new and clean as a whistle and the pilot was a terrific tour guide. Unbelievable experience.
