Scenery was breathtaking!! Quite an experience!! Very organized , on time and with safety a high priority! Everyone was thrilled with this ride
Helicopter tour great! Viator bad!
, May 2022
I would give the helicopter tour a 5 but I would give Viator a one (1). I specifically ask when booking if transportation from port was provided and was told no. After taking a taxi to the heliport they asked why we didn’t have them to pick us up??? They were nice enough to take us back after the ride.
Airborne Delight

This was breath taking Adventure! Truly Amazing! We we’re amazed at the technology. You need to do it once in a lifetime. A newer Aircraft would have been better. The driver ‘s comments were barely audible.

, Feb 2022
The helicopter ride on whisperstar was soo unbelievable. The views from the air is something that everyone should do when visiting the Napali coast. The helicopter pilot was informative on the land of Kauai and gave lots of history and cool information about the island. I learned so much and saw views that are unforgettable. Thank you sunshine helicopters.

Bogart was an amazing pilot and historian! We were mesmerized by the views. I would never visit Kauai without a helicopter ride with Sunshine!
Uplifting Experience
, Jan 2022
The most memorable part of the journey was spotting a mother whale with her calf. It was an incredible experience. In addition, this helicopter tour provided a complete view of the whole island. It was incredible to watch water falls on both sides of the mountain up and close. It was a very uplifting experience!
Amazing views
