Heart pounding
, Oct 2021
We flew with Bogaerts (sp?) who was very relaxing and knowledgeable while operating the aircraft. We were able to see the beautiful sights of Kauai up close in a very comfortable helicopter. We were able to have window seats on both sides which was awesome. We were able to gopro/video/photo as we wanted. They even picked us up from our hotel complimentary. Excellent staff and great service/reasonable cost.

Being able to see everything, especially the waterfalls and water. Definitely would recommend to anyone wanting to see the island.
Wonderful Experience!!
, Sep 2021
It was my first helicopter ride and I was a bit nervous. The crew put me at ease and made this a great experience for my husband and I. The pilot was great and pointed out some wonderful sights though out the tour. Would definitely recommend this to others that visit the island.
Great experience, but cramped back seats
, Sep 2021
Flying around Kauai in an helicopter is as great as it sounds! Spectacular sceneries and amazing experience. We were very cramped in the helicopter though and the back seats for sure had a totally different experience from the front. The back middle seats were much less enjoyable. I would recommend to choose a company that states clearly that there are no middle seats, or that allows up to 4 people on the vehicle
Excellent flight and sercixe

It rained in the morning so our flight had amazing waterfalls from the volcano. There were rainbows and scenes from where Jurassic Park was filmed.
Sunshine helicopter tour
, Aug 2021
Our pilot was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job making sure that everyone was able too see and get pictures of all of the sites. The ground crew was also very nice and especially Mike. We love our experience and will definitely recommend Sunshine to everyone we know that is visiting the island!
Worth it!!!!!!

Great experience

Great trip! I was worried because half of the island was covered in thick rain clouds but that didnt ruin anything. We were able to see everything and the ride was pretty smooth!
Amazing experience
