I booked this helicopter ride last minute (3 days before). I made sure to reconfirm the day before as instructed in the email.

I was in seats 1 and 2 in front seat. Views were spectacular. I tried to scrunch down to let the folks in back left see better. The pilot circled around to allow left side passengers to get some great pics which I thought was prudent of the pilot.

I get motion sickness pretty easily so I took a non drowsy Dramamine pill about 90 mins before and had zero problems! The pilot was well skilled and would warn us when there would be extra bumpiness.

I highly recommend this helicopter ride!!

Be aware if you are a short person, don't let them place you in the middle of the back seat or you will not be able to see much. The front seats give a more premium view.

If you do nothing else on the island, you MUST take the Jurassic Falls Helicopter Tour. Ten minutes from the helipad, you're there. After taking off again, you're in the air another 45min. I'm not going to spoil it by telling everything. Just go!

It was an incredible ride for our family. This was an first for our kids and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The pilot/guide was very thorough in explaining all the details and ensured everyone in the helicopter get to see the views. Must ride one on your trip to Kauai

This is an amazing, don’t-miss experience. This is the only tour that actually lands at the falls. It’s a decently long tour and absolutely amazing. No better way to see the island. I was terrified at first (I hate roller coasters even) and it was totally worth it. Pilot Gary was amazing!
